5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2012

I stayed with my friends and we all had a wonderful time. Spacious rooms and can watch the working of Chinese fishing nets in front of the resort. Good hospitality and loving people.. Thanks

Room Tip: Opt for a suit room which is facing lake.

The best place to be , very calm and quite , u feel like ur in a nature friendly place ... Just watch the Wide view of the backwater lake , birds flying , and some local people fishing around in their small boats ..
The staff there are very good and friendly that they make us feel very special.
The Evening spent sitting on the varanda of the cottage and having the view of the lake is amazing .. nothing can be more relaxing than that..
The best part of this place is its very near to the city highway, just a 20min drive from the busy and polluted city , we reach in this place ,and feel like nature is so close ....

Room Tip: Always prefer the Lake View Rooms , they are very big compared to any other cottages others ofer

I suggested lot of my friends and relatives to visit Lake Symphony Resort . This type of natural ambience is difficult to find in Cochin. I have experienced this resort with my family and quite satisfied with the hospitality. This resort is only 5 Kms from National highway and Lake Shore Hospital one of the multi specialty hospital in Cochin and 6 Kms from Le- Meridian a five star hotel in Cochin. I don’t think this resort is in a remote Place. One who prefer a calm and quiet place can definitely choose this resort and can reach there in 10 Min from the hectic city traffic

I came to know that 7 star deluxe resort of ‘Banayan Tree ‘ of a 1000 Crore budget project is coming in this locality. I receive mosquito repellant mats from the resort. The food supplied to us was really delicious.

First of all, its not a resort. There are just two cottages located in front of a lake. On arrival, first it was very difficult to locate it as its quite remotely located. Even the locals does not know about it! After a lot of effort we were able to find it. Upon arrival, it was a rude shock to find that its not really a resort as the name suggests. To add the place is very dirty. There were lot of ants, mosquitoes. We found ants of our bed !! Sleeping with the ants :-) The Swimming pool is a breeding place for mosquitoes.

The hospitality was non-existent. If you get something after asking 3 times, consider yourself lucky !! and dont complain about the quality. After lot persual we got the towels which were filthy and stinky - probably not washed after the last guest's usage.

Food was even more terrible.. there was no restaurant .. just a filthy kitchen in one corner and a dirty bearded guy serving it in your rooms..

As the location is remote, you dont get any transport. The staff there cheats the people by highly overcharging for the transport.

Overall, a TERRIBLE experience. We went for holidays for two nights but fled the place after 1 night.

Go there at your own RISK!

FIrst of all my resort is not in a remote place.It is just 5 kms away from the lakeshore hospital and 7km from the world renowned Le meridian Cochin,and also KSRTC and private bus services are
available there.We have at present four cottages ,not two with all the facillities.I understand from the resort staff that they provided excellent service to this guest and according to them he was bargaining with the taxi and auto people and they were relectant to carry them as he was proposing meagre amounts for the rides.Our resturant is an open space resturant with a view to the lake and with cool breeze flowing all the time,it is under three umbrellas and can accomodate 21 people at a time with ease.We have been keeping our kitchen clean and spotless.our kitchen has a water purifier.And it has all the latest aminties required to make delicious food. The swimming pool was under renovation as we are providing water filtration system and under water lights.
