Stayed here 2 years before. Sorry for the late review. I missed it some how. Food is great here. Location is amid the backwaters. You will be travelling by boat from parking to this resort. Rooms are average for the price. We stayed at Yuvaraja suite. Other normal rooms are so small. Service and location will make up for this.

This time our plan was made at the last moment. Searched through TripAdvisor for a calm and scenic place around Kochi and came across this place. It was just like we read about it on reviews and their website. We stuck to Kerala cuisine during our stay there and it was wonderful, though we expected little variety in vegetarian selections...

Just before an hour from check-in, hotel staff called and informed me that the room I booked has a drainage problem. Hence they asked me to stay in a different resort. Initially they told me that they will drop me in that resort in their boat and asked me to come to the boat boarding point. But after boarding the...

It is a wonderful heritage hotel and it is located on island of its own and the food which you will get over there will be fantastic. If you want to relax with your friends it will be the right place for that.

Pretty calm place. Felt as if we travelled back in time. Had a great ayurvedic massage. Staff friendly. We had plans of binging on sea food which was not fulfilled completely as the menu didn't have many options. Heritage rooms. On the downside power was fluctuating constantly and minor housekeeping issues which was discussed with Dilip the genial manager who...

Has a good Ayurvedic center for massage, residential program. Food is good. Don't miss the sunset and sunrise. Not much of activities other...

We stayed at this place for one night during last phase of our Kerala tour. Nearby Kochi, this could be travellers last pit stop before moving out of Kerala and it's totally worth it. Situated on a water body, you have to get rid of your transport at the bay before a boat take you out to your destination. While...

Location is awesome, you can reach only by boat, hotel arranges to pick you up, there is not much of activity as such, you can try your hand at fishing. It is surrounded on all sides by the lake and the setting is good. Hotel should provide indoor games like carrom etc which was not well maintained. Pool is small...

If you want to stay in Kerala for 3-4days just spend one day at this place wonderful place and amenities there. Most amazing and attractive thing of this place is its on a Iceland center in the sea 🌊 and you can enjoy the boating by default as you have to go by boat there only.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
What makes Soma Kerala Palace different from other holiday resorts is its ancient architecture which is recreated using master pieces, about 250 years old, disbanded from their actual site. Classical art forms such as Koodiyattom, Thulall and Padayani, performed by veterans of the art, form a part of the Kalaa Sandhya (Cultural Evening) which was once a means of entertainment for the royalty. ... more   less
