“Great People, Attentive service & Well maintained property”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2010

A very neat and well maintained property backed by great service and a wonderful set of people running the property. My wife, child and i spent a memorable holiday at Zuri Kumarakom. What set this hotel apart from the others are its people and the attentive service we received throughout our stay. We spent a lot of time roaming around the resort, getting pampered at the spa, sitting by the lagoon, the lovely pool, cycling (bikes need some maitainence though). An excellent stay all the way!

We stayed at one of the cottages in Zuri resorts and the experience was ecstatic. Everything from location to the room service was 10/10. They made us feel very special on our honeymoon first by decorating the room offering us a nice cake.

the swimming pool at the resort is very well maintained and right beside it is the spa, one surely can't miss these facilities in the resort.

The food at the Zuri resort was mouth watering and they served us traditional keral style fish and some nice veg dishes too

all in all a must visit place if visiting kerala for a peaceful vacation

Right from the pick-up from the airport to the complimentary lunch pack offered while checking-out, everything was perfect. The property was immaculate and well maintained. We could see battalions of maintenance and lanscaping staff going to work early in the mornings. Our five year old thoroughly enjoyed the bicycle rides, the pool and the freshly cut mangoes she got whenever she asked . No review of Zuri would be complete without a special mention of their service in general and the personalised attention given to us by Sreevidya at the front desk and Lijo and Vishnu at the restaurant. Be it the room service, housekeeping, staff at the restaurant, chefs, spa or pool, the service was outstanding.
If I have to point out any negatives, I would say food options were limited, although my husband being a Keralite would disagree with me. The buffet spread could be widened to suit other palates as well, not just locals.

Beautiful, relaxing, good food and truly a place to rejuvenate yourself. Our stay at the Zuri Resort was amazing. The food was simply yummylicious. We visited the resort in the monsoons and trust me monsoons in kerala are so beautiful and romantic. The staff is perfect, they ensure that your stay is a memorable experience. The resort staff upgraded our room without levying any additional charges on us. Having cycles on the resort is a great idea. The resort gives you amazing view of the vembanad lake. The resort is truly a place where you can rewind yourself, be with nature and enjoy the tranquility in its full glory.

I had heard and read a lot about Kumarakom Lake Resort close by and had checked in there for 3 nights with my wife. KLR is quite beautiful but we thought it was too over rated and over priced. We paid a bomb to get the rooms there and were slightly disappointed. Visited Zuri on the second evening for dinner and was bowled over by the resort. My wife and I immediately decided to check out of KLR and check in at Zuri even though we had already paid at KLR. And it was a fantastic decision. We stayed for 2 nights at Zuri and can't find any reason to complain about the resort. We checked in at the Presidential Pool Villa and it was mind blowing. The private pool is huge. The spa at the resort is too good and I am not surprised that it has been ranked amongst the best in the country. Some of the small things that we really loved at Zuri are:
1. The bicycles they provide to their guests to travel around the resort. Great idea and eco friendly too :)
2. The private candle lit dinner arranged for us which was too romantic
3. The cigar room (a nice little concept)
4. Fishing rods provided to guests free of cost
Each and every staff member at the resort is extremely helpful with a genuine smile on their face. Special thanks to Dilawar (resident manager), Sreevidya (for patiently showing us around the resort in detail), Tony, the chef (for dishing out a sumptuous and tasty dinner for the candle light dinner), Siby and Pramod (for taking care of all our needs at the restaurant, always with a smile)
It was a truly wonderful experience for us and we loved every bit of it. If I have to talk about anything negative, I can only say that maybe the buffet spread could be more and they can work on the food. Maybe everything else was so fantastic that we expected more in terms of the food. Overall, I should say, if you are in Kumarakom, you have to stay only at Zuri. Its Awesome !!
