The location of the property is excellent with spacious rooms. The staff is polite and helpful. The food was good. The property also has indoor games like carom and table-tennis which we enjoyed. The swimming pool was rather clean as compared to other properties that we stayed at. One can just sit by the pool side and admire the backwaters... More

One of the best resort in Kumarakom. Spacious Property with Amazing backwater view. I would highly recommend 1st floor rooms but still depends on your personal choice. The staff people are kind and friendly. The service is a bit slow but doesn't matter as long as you are in vacation mood.

There was nobody available from staff to assist us when it was raining heavily outside with thunderstorm and power went off. We kept on requesting help but they didn't even managed to have generator backup till 1 o'clock in night. The duty manager was so shameless that he didn't even talked to us and left us with dirty and rude... More

The resort is well made with spacious rooms,ethnic furniture,swimming pool and a great view. The hotel staff was friendly and food was great. The only thing that it lacks is maintenance. The rooms had lizards behind the AC, cobwebs, bathroom fixtures were broken. The balcony was just beside the backwaters but again it was covered with weeds.

This was the best place in our entire tour. The restaurant was superb, the staff was friendly, the amenities were good. The whole resort is built superbly and if you are thinking of a stay in Kumarakom without thinking choose this place! 5 stars for sure!
