It was clean, spacious, with a wonderful view of the waters. Our back yard was also a great place to view the sunrise. Note to tourist: Please bring bug spray! Mosquitos WILL find...

Best way to reach this location is to use your Google Maps, as it is bit confusing for new people. But once you reach the place after an tiresome journey you feel in heaven with the way they welcome and assist. We had stayed in "Heritage Garden Villa" and the room no doubt was great with all heritage design (Kerala...

I made a last minute booking, but this hotel with its 24/7 reception was able to accommodate. It is in a fabulous location, by the lake - so you can just watch the houseboats and birds go by, and use the hotel's own boats to have a look around. Hotel's own taxi will take you to airport at a very...

We stayed in a houseboat for one night, and we got to see the backwaters of Kerala, the view and ride is worth it..! It's a once in a lifetime experience, feeling. As the houseboat takes off, you begin your adventure full of excitement and curiosity but it's worth it. The houseboats are clean not too modern but decent. The...

Fabulous Kerala architecture. This hotel is perched on the lake. The facilities are excellent. Gorgeous to watch all the houseboats passing by. Complimentary tea on the lawn at 5 followed by a boat trip down the river for sunset. The hotel looked after us so well. The bedrooms were exquisite. Outdoor en suite bathrooms, four poster beds with mosquito nets....

Excellent property!!! Backwaters is few feet away from the room!! Good food & facilities!!! Just that staff has very discriminatory attitude towards North Indians & not ready to cooperate. Little too far from the airport (3 hours). One day is enough to explore the entire property!!!

This hotel is beautifuly situated, right on the lake in lovely gardens. The buildings are traditional and have loads of character, The rooms are well equipped with lovely outside bathrooms and huge shower, Very comfortable but a bit 'tired' could do with a bit of an updo. Food is good, and you can get a really great massage.

Had a 2 night stay here as part of a group. The staff, by and large, are excellent. However, the man who answered the phone on reception was a little abrupt. Nonetheless I think it would be unfair to let that overshadow the rest of the great service we experienced. Lots of activities are available at the resort. The room...
