“Excellent in all ways..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

My wife & I stayed here as part of a 100 member group over the weekend.. I would surely rate this resort as one of the bet I have stayed in anywhere in India.. Be it the in room comfort, amenities, toilets, common areas, entertainment options (toddy shop visit is a sure 'no miss'), restaurant, spa, f & b service everything was absolutely top of the line..
The service was the absolute highlight of this whole trip.. The GM Mr. Vinod Nair, RM Mr. Ayappan, Front office Ms. Bina, Service Praveen, Romeo & everyone else who always served with a smile be it at 1am or 6am.. We were quite a demanding group with a few unreasonable requests but they were all dealt with with perfectly.. The service attitude was for me the best ever within India.. Keep up the good work guys.. I am sure Vasundhara Sarovar Premiere would rock with a team like you..
Those of you planning on a trip anywhere near Allepey look no further Vasundhara Sarovar is the best..

Room Tip: First & second floor rooms have a great view of the lake..

The warmth one feels on entering this property is abundant. Well trained staff do all to please the guests. This resort is big, big enough to pack in many interesting corners that surprise you at every turn. There is a big pool, games room, gym, lake side sit out, pool side bar, boat ride, spa, observation deck, fishing, amphitheatre and even a tea shop by the water. Rooms - many options to pick from, regular, floating villa, Jacuzzi villas and more to suit most requirements. The rooms and bath are large and tastefully done up. Seaside Kerala is sultry and the air conditioning was very efficient. I could see variety in the buffet offering at the restaurant, but somewhat unremarkable though above average. Wifi is slow and one gets free 30 minutes a day and beyond that is chargeable.
Apart from minor issues like hot water flowing from the wrong side or the wrong room number on the telephone, there is little or almost nothing that I can complain about.
The staff are a lovely lot and special credit goes to Mr.Ayyapan, who keeps the staff on their toes.
I am happy to recommend this place.

Room Tip: Rooms on level 1 and 2 have a better view of the lake.

Spent two nights at the Vasundhara Sarovar Premiere resort and would rate it excellent.
Resort situated on the backwaters of Vayalar near Kumarakom. All rooms be it superior, deluxe, heritage or floating cottages have water views. The decor is very classy with a lot of attention being paid to detail. It is a blend of modern and traditional . Rooms and toilets are very spacious with all modern amenities. The floating cottages have a private Jacuzzi as well. The common areas are large and well spread and despite being a crowd of nearly 100 people all of us could enjoy the serenity of the resort without stepping on each others toes. They have a lot of out door facilities like cycling, speed boat - chargeable, free boat ride in the evenings etc. A lovely tea kada on the waterfront was an innovative idea. Food was amazing and the variety and taste was faultless. Absolutely 5 star experience and definitely one of the most talked about upcoming spa resort justifiably. It is about 1.45 minutes from the Cochin airport depending of traffic conditions. A taxi to the resort would normally cost around Rs.2200.

Room Tip: The delux rooms on the ground floor have a small Garden in the balcony, the floating cottages have a...

Awesome property with a huge range of good services and hospitality. Rooms were excellent, food was wonderful, they also arranged candle light dinner for me and my husband, and offered us with a lot of activities. One must visit this place in a trip to Kerala, The back water view from this resort is just perfect and soothing. I would suggest to go for the house boat stay. Overall its a paradise.

Nice landscaping. Good service. Breakfast, lunch and Dinner buffets are really good. The rooms are well maintained. The live music was refreshing and soothing. Good conference rooms. Indoor game facilities are also good.

Well, for all the Hype this property had created through Outlook Traveller, it was quite a bummer..first was the drive from airport which took ages (almost 2 and half hours) and then the room.. the room what we got was not upto the mark with some strange smell emerging.. though we got a better room by midnight, it was only after lodging a good fight.. the place has stangent water which wasnt a great sight.. but the river nearby was a good sight especially in the rains.. would say this is more an avergae to good property but the hype isnt worth it !

Room Tip: Try for the floating rooms or the room above the reception area.. they have a amazing view
