Very good resort located in Island which is spread over 3 acres with just 25 rooms. The architect is very good with antique roof & doors. It has Aurvedic centre. The food is also very good. Great place to relax.

Super impressed with this hotel. Booking, check-in, check-out was hassle free. Hotel is located on a private Island spread across some 3.5 acres. There is no way you can enter this place without a boat. 20mins boating to check-in. An open pool besides lake, a tower house gives you a romantic feel for the nature. Well maintained Kerala Traditional style... More

Pros : 1) Awesome location. 2) Nice food (Very much expensive but taste & quantity is good) 3) Kids friendly - if you are having kids they are gonna... More

Awesome location. Very beautiful and calm surroundings. Rooms: The rooms have very good ambience with lot of wooden furnishings. Some might find the lighting too less. One major problem is all the noise from one floor can be heard from another floor. Since we had booked the whole villa, it wasn't much of a problem for us. The staircase from... More

Very well located, maintained and beautiful view and great experiences.. Great things: 1. Boat ride to the resort as this is on an island. It is one beautiful part of the deal ! 2. Surrounded by clean, peaceful water and a viewing tower (although nothing dramatic about this tower..just one story climb!) 3. Old style traditional house feel to the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
