Rude and non responsive staff can water down any positive and that is the bane of this property. Terrible. The reception takes... More

Let's see, rooms were a bit old, food was a lil bad, not worth the price. Beautiful Ambiance for photoshoots and lovely for a couple days stay. Romantic backwater view. Wasn't there much time so not sure about most of the stay. Food was bad rooms were dirty, altogether it's a ok resort.

If you want to combine great ambience with comfort,this is the place to stay. A total old world feel with rooms overlooking the backwaters, the hotel, a Kerala tourism hotel is definitely worth trying out. I loved the food too.
