We stayed at Punnamada for two nights during our honeymoon and absolutely loved the resort.
The room was the most traditional of all the places we stayed and the view of the lake serene. The restaurant was smart and the food delicious.
There is a complimentary evening sunset cruise on the lake on the resort’s day boat and there are loads of activities on offer: everything from a full-sized snooker table to a paddle boat for the lake. There are also bikes, badminton, table tennis and a well-stocked library as well as a reasonable swimming pool. When we arrived we joked that we wouldn’t leave the resort the whole time and in the end, we didn’t.
We were also due to take a houseboat trip on the resort’s houseboat but in the end, they contracted out the trip to another company which we were less impressed with but the resort itself is top notch.
