This is a gem of a place with wonderful, serene atmosphere around. The property is actually a typical Kerala style bungalow which has been converted into a resort. There are just 4-6 rooms in here but the rooms are beautiful and clean. Staying here is actually like staying at home with very friendly staff around you to help cater to... More

This quiet villa is a perfect getaway from the bustle of nearby towns. It offers a beautiful view, comfy rooms with A/C, and friendly service. We enjoyed lunch and breakfast and the food was uniformly great. It's a bit of a drive into the heart of town, so plan accordingly. But if you want to stay out of the noise... More

We stayed in this villa for 2 nights and loved the breath taking views of vembanad lake. Good place for a silent holiday. This place has all potential to attract tourists if this is managed well. There is no chef and the food here is a joke and priced very high. They brought parathas from outside and charged them high.... More

We apologise for the glitches you had in our villa.It was highly unfortunate that a sudden issue had cropped up with the chef and being a small property we did not get adequate time to sort it out in haste.However now issues are all sorted and we are having a new cook and caretaker to look into things.Breakfast being complimentary,...

The grounds are gorgeous. The running of the hotel, however, is remarkably bad. I actually cannot believe that there are not more reviews on here that reflect this. A few examples: - When we got there, we had to keep walking over to the manager's cottage to ask questions. She told us that she would have come over to talk... More

The property is situated little away from the main town area, some 20 kms from the Allapuzha bus stop. This property is a good option for those who wish to have a relaxing stay , even better when you have a group. Sit facing the lake and relax.

Had nice experience. Big Kerala style villa with few cottages and good amount of open space and greenery facing Vembanad lake. USP of the place is peace and calmness. Would give it 3.5 stars. Best part is the hospitality of two guys, Stephan and Sharath. Their efforts to make our stay memorable were commendable. Kudos to both of them. All... More
