The villas are in a lovely location on the a large lake-like expanse of backwater and the garden is full of hammocks, swings and benches to relax on (providing the humidity/heat are bearable - in late April it's pretty close). The non AC bedroom adjacent to the kitchen is large, clean and cool enough at night with a great washroom.... More

My son and I stayed here in mid-March 2015. The location is perfect - an oasis of quiet right on Ashtamudi Lake with hammocks to relax in. The hotel serves tasty food so there is no need to leave the premises.Our room was spotlessly clean and we had comfortable beds and an excellent shower. The houseboat we rented for 24... More

If you travel India like I did and end up south towards the end of your visit this is the perfect place to spend a few days. Or a week if you feel like just chilling out. Beautiful location on the lake, gorgeous, new nicely detailed rooms and hammocks for all. The food was great and the staff friendly and... More

Fantastic rooms made with natural materials. Set in a lovely garden on the lake. Hammocks to chill in, food is good and Francis the tuk tuk driver/guide is a charmer. Worth staying in Kollam for - can go on an interesting canoe tide down the backwaters with Vishnu.

We stayed in March this year on our 2 week tour of Kerala and fell in love with the place. The rooms are large and sqeaky clean. The bathrooms are luxurious with great showers and hot water. The setting is a paradise right on the lake edge and the owner Prabhath and staff go all out to make your stay... More

Found the accommodation in the Lonely Planet travel guide and booked the same day; we were incredibly lucky to even find rooms let alone the the beautifully maintained paradise that was on offer here! Nestled on the shores of Kerala's stunning backwaters, this incredible resort boasts both amazing Keralan cuisine prepared on site and a utopia like atmosphere created by... More

We spent a week at this property in mid February. Good, clean and comfortable accommodation right on Ashtamudi Lake, away from the hustle and bustle of Kollam. The owner Mr. Joseph was very helpful and accommodating. The property is beautifully landscaped and hammocks were great. The staff were very friendly and always came through and the food was quite good.... More

Lovely cottages, very clean and comfortable in the most beautiful location, the chef was not available during our visit so the food was not great and there are not really any alternative eating places close by. Mr Joseph the owner is very helpful and keen to arrange tours etc. The jewel in the crown for us was the resident Tuk... More

This place is so tranquil you could just sit in a hammock watching sunset and be totally at peace it's lush and green and is perfectly located right on the beach. Joseph is super friendly and goes out of his way to help. You feel like a guest not a customer.
