We enjoyed sitting near the water enjoying the view. Our room was very comfortable, so comfortable that we ordered room service instead of leaving for dinner. We had dinner and breakfast at the resort and the food was very good. The service was good.

I stayed on the Second Floor of the Villa. Clean and Tidy Rooms with lovely Riverside view on the one side and poolside view on the other. Great Venue for a family... More

We had a great stay here. It deserves the high rating and raving reviews that it has on Tripadvisor. We were upgraded to the Club Room and we found the room to be big and clean. The bathroom was huge and very very clean, with lots of hot water. The service in particular was very warm and friendly. In fact,... More

Stayed here for 2 nights as part of a Kerala tour. It's down by the river although the way to it passes a toddy house where men can be seen fighting and staggering! Nice setting and quite good food. Perfectly acceptable room but incredibly dark (one tiny window) - in fact so much I left my slippers behind - didn't... More

The location was a former palace. One could not help but feel the history of the location.The hotel staff exceeded our expectations with attention to details. Food and beverage manager (SriJith) arranged our memorable trip to Pooram. The entire experience was one of our most treasured memories of India.

Staffs are very friendly, helpful and very understanding. Visited with my wife and baby, had a very relaxing two days and proceed to Guruvayoor. The pool is very good and since I was there at the off peak time, I had all the facilities in the resort for my exclusive use. ;-)

The ambience is very good and the service is excellent! They were kind enough to upgrade our rooms for free! There is a small recreation room as... More
