So we had booked an overnight houseboat stay with a family of 4 including 2 senior citizens. Though we had a different experience at the houseboat, and were later accommodated in the lake villa room, we were blown away with the hospitality and service at the resort. Extremely spacious rooms with beautiful interiors and spectacular views. They even arranged a...

The resort is right on the back waters, a great location and quite popular with the forigners n international tourists. The staffs, sparing a few are not very fluent in english and it's quite hard to explain anything to them. The breakfast buffet is baad, there's hardly any choice and the chefs are quite incapable of handling two guests at...

We stayed at this resort for 2 nights staring Dec 1st, 2016. The resort is located on Lake Vemband, near the south-west corner. One has to drive through a very narrow village road to reach the resort. It is a beautiful resort with a very traditional Kerala look. All rooms are on the ground level and the resort is fairly...

We only stayed for one night and loved the resort. My opinion was that is was perfectly small and exclusive, stunning houses containing the rooms set on the lake. Food was the best we've had in India! Staff were so helpful and courteous. We would thoroughly recommend staying for one night or longer.

We ended our 2 week trip here as a nice treat. Resort is right on the backwaters and you can step off the resort gardens right onto the boat. Because it's on the backwaters, you have to go through some back streets past residential houses to get to it. Lots of activities are available a the resort including cooking demonstrations,...

We went here as a group of families on team vacation. Booked all 3 types of rooms. Lake view room was the best & is worth the premium pricing as it offers an excellent view of the lake right from your bed itself. Also, recliners (wooden) with cushions are provided in between the room & the lake. The other two...

The Punnamada resort is very lovingly designed and decorated. The rooms are spread out on small bungalows and the openair bathrooms have a great comfort. The view from the restaurant to the water is very nice and you can sit there all day and watch the boats. The food has a very high standard and the staff is super friendly.

.The managment must first understand what a luxury hotel is and how it is the service offered in luxury hotels. Once they have understood this in the first place, they must instruct the staff. We arrived at 6am. We waited until 7am for breakfast and then go to rest. Unfortunately when they opened for breakfast we found out that they...
