“Sheer perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

Kerala was one of my partners' "Bucket List" requests. The experience was as though heaven had already been reached. Food wonderful Staff friendly and attentive. Clean, comfortable. Marvellous views of Lake only yards away. Good pool. Delightful local area. Tremendous value for money. Getting a little bit too hot early March. Just sit on your terrace watching bird life, local fishermen (who sang to us one evening when passing). Nothing too much trouble for any of the staff. When we left after 9 days it was as though we were leaving our own Keralan "family". Very private safe and secure. Want to go on a houseboat? they will arrange a day doing that too, picking you up in front of the hotel.
Thank you Oscar,Prem,Joseph, everyone.

Room Tip: Lakeside to watch the gentle way of life go by. Air conditioning and fan in room and further fan on...

We wound up here when our 1 month house rental fell through and it was a blessing from God! Stayed from January 6 to Feb 6 and ate almost all our meals here. On the shore of beautiful placid Lake Vemnabad with view of a Chinese Fishing net, local fisherman placing and pulling their nets from canoes three times a day, the parade of house boats going by between Alleppey and Fort Cochin every afternoon, twenty species of birds (three types of Kingfishers, sunbirds and Brahaminy Kites{eagles}), and spiritual sunrises and sunsets all in the view from our comfortable home-like room and the gorgeous swimming pool every day. It is truly a resort with the peace and quiet rarely found in India with free paddle boat, badminton and exercise equipment, too. The chef is a true professional with cruise ship and other experience who can tailor meals to your taste-western or Indian Kerala or Northern style with spices to your taste. The entire staff treats you like family with any wish you have being provided with a genuine smile. The chef explained the ingredients and how to cook any dish you asked about and even let us into the kitchen to try cooking ourselves. The waiter got to know my tastes and when we returned home from explorling nearby Kumarkom, Fort Cochin, Marari Beach or Alleppey or a long walk in the beautiful quiet residential neighborhood he would offer my wife a Diet Coke and me a beer and snacks or meal. The General Manager, who is past Alleppey Rotarian President, arranged a night of Kathakalli, the Manager got my shoes repaired, the gardener picked a coconut and hacked off the end while the waiter put in a straw!!! Blissful and peaceful stay.

Room Tip: The cottages have private outdoor dining seating with lake view, shade and fan.

We ended up here by mistake as the house we booked feel though. We really loved this placed the staff are so friendly nothing is too much trouble and the looked after us very well. The rooms and pool area were very clean. Amazing lake views. The food was a real added extra and the chef prepared us a special Kerala thail which was the best we had in Kerala on a bananna leaf, beautiful cooked fish, beetrot curry, dahl, wonderful veggie currys and lots of other bits. Good quality towels sheets and everything looked pretty new.
Highly recommend. We were a family of four.

Room Tip: Two lakeside stand alone rooms / villas

Property is good for small groups ....but you must ask for menu before order food...because a single chappathi will cost you more than 30 rs ..Its not a five star property to charge this much money...last month my friends visited this place they had a terrible experience with their food bill

It's been a wonderful experience for us to be in the resort, we were pleased with the service and care from the staff and very good chef too. Food was very good and costed low compared to other resorts in similar grade. We have been treated royally by the entire team of people working their from check-in until check-out. I will surely visit this place whenever I visit Kerala and will highly recommend my friends and family to stay there.

Room Tip: Plan to stay for at least 2 nights to enjoy their boat ride facility too.
