Good things first - Courteous and welcoming staff, Nice, large sitting area, decent bedrooms and bath, sumptuous dinner spread. Areas which need improvement - improvement required in stock of essentials in the kitchen... More

We stayed in the homestay not the houseboats. These do seem to be the mainstay of the property. The house is directly on the river but behind a wall. We took chairs from the dining room to sit out front to watch river life. Rooms were oldy worldy, the bed in our room was so high I had to take... More

We came with cousins of ours for a daytime houseboat ride. It was a wonderful experience. The staff was courteous. The Kerala lunch was a delight and all of us (including the kids) were delighted by the experience. We would like to come back again. Seema & Girish

It was a wonderful experience, a very memorable trip along the backwaters onto the lake, one of life's experiences we will never forget. The captain and his team were excellent, food was well prepared and service 2nd to non. We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere our time on board a floating palace.
