As per other reviews, this is a very pleasant, relaxing place to visit. The accommodation above the small canal is a different experience. The view of the lake is most relaxing as we watched houseboats go by. A short walk over to the main building for meals. Being on the waterfront the view of the water and the sunsets were... More

We visited this place in January 2014. The location is really nice. Rooms are nice. Food & service was good too. All rooms are built on canals. I liked this idea. Very good property for bird lovers. Bird sanctuary is located nearby. At backwaters, you can take a boat ride and spot amazing birds. You can enjoy sun set from... More

We had an amazing time at Waterscapes. The property is nicely designed but needs good maintenance. Small wear & tear is not repaired in time, landscapes are not very nicely trimmed. Its strategic location to the lake is a major plus, you can ask the house boat to pick you or leave you at the jetty within the property which... More

Terrific location. That is THE reason why the resort is doing business. Otherwise the property is quite worn out with a number of rough edges, but if you go with the right expectations you won’t be disappointed. Food is not as bad as some of the reviews suggest but the breakfast spread can do with a makeover. Best part is... More

With the deal of KTDC we were able to visit such a magnificent location. The room booked for us was a canal view and was simply awesome. The rooms are spacious, the veranda faces the canal, clean and great staff. We had also taken the package for Ayurveda massage, which was just relaxing and I almost dosed off. The food... More

Top. Notch. The rare instance where the website write-ups and photographs do not do justice; the reality outstrips the virtuality ! This is supposed to be the off season, but is a great time to be there. The property is maintained well, good food, great view from the restaurant. Really good service. The Ayurvedic massages are very well administered; discounts... More

The resort run by KTDC(Kerala Tourism Development Corporation - the state run tourist company) is located just off the Vembanad lake - you can see the sun rising over the lake from the terrace of your rooms - which is an absolute bliss as the sight is something out of the world and has to be experienced to know what...

If you want to experience the whiteness of lake waters and the green canopy of trees at the same time, this is the place to be. We stayed in the lake view cottage ( which also faces the pool ) and it was well worth the price. The scenery at the front and back are pretty. The resort is placed... More
