We stayed at Mal House as part of a 5 night package. The restaurant was outstanding and enjoyed the entire, small complex. Our only knock was that there was a lot of noise from the lobby due to some work being done, which made it hard to sleep until quite late. Not a problem likely to phase future visitors though. We also spent 2 nights each at Purity on Lake Vembanad and on their houseboat, Discovery, through Malabar Escapes. We also saw Trinity, another property. Malabar Escapes runs a very professional organization with a very high quality of service overall. We would heartily recommend any of the properties that we visited as well as the packages that they will assemble.
