Even though being greeted and treated quiet charmingly, the rooms were literally a mood spoiler. The package was a moderate one and we were quite happy about that, but shockingly a room with nothing but dust, no waste bins and No door lock for the "BATHROOM"!!! made us think the package was quite high. The breakfast served was of 5... More

We stayed in Sylvania for almost one week at the beginning of January 2016. This place is a bird sanctuary itself, cottages in a huge garden plenty of trees and all kind of birds, far away from all noisy streets. A place of peace from where you may admire the sunset over Vembanad lake. We are thankful for the great... More

The place is not kept properly. Rooms had plate sized holes in them and was full of lizards. The rooms were also smelly. Service was very bad. Four rooms run by the owner himself. He is not able to manage the show by himself. Bad choice to stay in kumarakom!

Hi All, We were in Sylvania last weekend. The ambiance is excellent with lot of spice trees, sound of birds and it's a quite calm and peaceful atmosphere. The place is just near the lake and hardly 5 min walk from the main road. The people there are too friendly and helpful. And about food: You can order any fish/food... More

This is a beautiful family owned cottage/BB kind of place by the lake. The cottages are surrounded by all kinds of spice gardens. They have their own boats and excellent home made food. Great value.
