“Excellent Resort in God's Country”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

Dear Friends, We had visited IlliKAm Lake Resort On 21st March 2013.

Resort is Excellent , Neat ,Clean place, Very Nice Family Cottage, Excellent Staff service & Good & Hygenic Food.

We refer this Resort to all who visit Kumarkom rather then staying in Houseboat.

Regards

Ritesh & family - MUMBAI

We stayed at Illikalam lake resort early March'13 , the place is good and the rooms were decent and big enough. The lake view was the best part. The hospitality and the food was too good. I would definitely recommend this place to people who would look to have a relaxed vaccation at Kumorakkam

IT WAS NICE EXPERIENCE STAYING WITH ILLIKULAM. VALUE FOR MONEY,We had a very enjoyable stay here.We will certainly look for further stay here if we come back to kerala.We were enjoying the great lake and the water activities for the whole day time.It is a rare sight seeing as from the cottage itself we could observe everything in the lake.Natural kerala food they prepared for us was great as it was very fresh.Over all our stay for 2 days was a memorable one,as it was within our budget,simple and excellent .

A spectacular view of Lake Vamanad, a natural water body holding huge ecological system. You can see fish in crystal clear water. A natural habitat for birds. The cool breeze from the lake mesmerises you. We had nature walk amidst the tree laden resort.
The rooms are clean and tidy. Staff is courteous. Food is just like homemade.
We will cherish the memories at the resort.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the lake.

Lovely spotlessly clean room overlooking Lake Vembanad, with ladder leading to fine swimming - once the water hyacinths are pushed aside. Very helpful staff and excellent food. Bicycles available for guests - very enjoyable cycling round the area. Watching the sun set over the lake was marvelus
