Very nice hospitality. Personal attention and very warm and welcoming... Mr Venkatesh (RV Sir), Mr Sanjeev and Chef Senthil deserve appreciation. RV took care of us very well and made it a point to keep our 5 year old daughter Ira happy. He even got crackers on Diwali night and indulged Ira and Joanne, another kid. He prepared his special dishes and also the Oats and curd special preparation, when I mentioned having read about it on TA.
The pool is small and not very deep, but good enough for kids and beginners like me.
My wife enjoyed the Ayurvedic massage, which was relaxing.
Though this is a small property and has limited area with only 20 rooms, it's well managed and maintained. It's on the Vembanad lake.
The guests are well taken care of. Food is the best part of this place.
Overall, a nice place to chill and relax...a good break from routine life.

God's Own Resort - - - - is what I have termed it as. We were greeted with a warm welcome and the staff smiled at us saying "We are giving you one of the best rooms of our resort". We chuckled thinking everyone says so, but at our amazement we were taken to one of the rooms which had a direct lake view with no other cottage/room as a hinderance. This resort is neslted right on the banks of lake Vembanad which gives a breathtaking view of the lake and the backwaters. The hotel is very well maintained, the rooms are spacious, bed linen is super duper clean. The balcony overlooks the garden, the pool and the lake of course.. There cannot be a better setting to view the sun going down.. And what makes it picture perfect is the sunset and the houseboats that pass through this lake and you can see this right from your room. If I were to design a Postcard for Kerala, it would be with a photograph of this resort and the view from here.
Moving on to the staff, I havent seen such an exceptional hospitality even in a 5 star resort. I know most of the staff by their names now. They are right at your service and with such a warm smile on their faces you feel its one big family. Hats off to the team of Mr Venkatesh who ensures each guest is being taken care of.
Talking about food, from breakfast to dinner everything was mouth watering and finger licking good ;). I had the best Alleppey Fish curry here and simply loved it. Also if Mr Venkatesh tried something new he would serve it to his guests. When we were there, he had tried a breakfast preparation made out of oats and curd which had come out very well.. Cant have a healthier way to begin the day..
They also have an amenity center with games like table tennis, carrom, badminton, etc.
Lastly, its such a relaxing place you can spend days here just to unwind yourself from the hustle bustle of the city life.

Room Tip: Room No 101 is right in front of the lake. You can ask them for a lake facing room and the staff wi...
