Waterscapes is a KTDC establishment and is a fairly run down ill maintained place with not much to recommend it at all. The night lighting is very poor and makes for unsafe walking. The food is basic and boring. There really isn't much else to say. Take my advice and try somewhere else - I can recommend Coconut Lagoon where... More

My biggest complaint about Waterscapes is that it is really overpriced when you consider the mediocre (at best) service, and the condition of the bungalows. I changed bungalows, because the one I was staying in had rodents living in the walls- I awoke after my first night to rather large rodent droppings on my bedside table. I could hear critters...

Kumarakom is a small town around 65 kilometers and three hours away from Alleppey. The roads are narrow and congested so the short distance takes a long time. This town is our very own Venice and you have a choice of staying in various resorts spread along the back waters or in a house boat. The Waterscapes Kumarakom Backwater resort... More

We had been on a tour to kerala in Sept'11. We stayed at KTDC resort for only one night. Actually our booking was done by a tour operator. When we reached the resort in evening at around 7.30 PM we found out that room allotted to us (canal view) was located at a very isolated place. So we requested hotel... More

The best ever log type cabin rooms we stayed in were at this hotel. The rooms were well kept and the staff were very helpful in providing us the basic necessities that were needed in the rooms. The lake view from the hotel room was exotic!! Very relaxing and breathtaking! Wish we spent 2 nights instead of 1 at this... More

We stayed at this hotel during our vacation in Dec. The location is amazing and is truely amongst nature. The property is sitting on a maze of canals and the rooms are on stilts between the canals or on top of it. Some of the rooms are facing the lake and the pool and those are the ones you want... More

We stayed in KTDC Waterscapes in Kumarakom for 2 nights. We were upgraded to lake view room as a compensation for some bad experience in KTDC Arnaya Nivas, Thekkady. The location is ideal, as it is on the banks of Lake Vembanad. The room was a cottage with lovely palm trees and lake in front. Service of the hotel was... More

I visited Waterscapes for our Annual Meet. We were close to 80 people from the company that I worked for. The location was superb, right next door to the bird sanctuary! The drive from Kottayam railway station took us 30 minutes. We had to disembark a few hundred metres from the reception and walk crossing tiny rivulets. The staff organised... More
