Situated in highly picturesque and serene surroundings Kumarakom lake resort offers very unique and memorable experience. The resort has a great amalgamation of heritage, culture and modern comforts. The food was delicious, rooms were beautiful and activities offered were excellent, I and my family enjoyed houseboat stay immensely. The staff was cooperative and very efficient. Transportation offered to-from the airport/Fort Kochi resort was comfortable and the chauffeurs were very courteous. The special mention goes to chef Sarath who made our dining experience at the resort very special and delightful.

Hotel's Favorite
Kumarakom lake resort is truly a paradise on earth in gods own country. The service was exceptional and Dan the staff extremely courteous. Food was spectacular and out of the world. There are enough activities for the kids to keep them occupied and give them an authentic kerala experience. Of notable mention in the staff are Vishnu and Meenakshi at Ettukettu, Abhijit and Aleena at reception, the activity coordinator Kavin, yoga instructor. The houseboat experience was also fantastic. Our chef Ajith, boat captain Vipin and coordinator Rejimohan were all wonderful. Ajith whipped up authentic kerala delicacies that delighted our senses. Definitely recommend the resort as a once in a lifetime experience.

If you want a taste and feel of Kerala then this place will certainly take you to a different experience altogether. Overall experience was beyond excellent. The staff and property has not left anything to complain. This is very rare to experience and has very sweet memory in our life. The focus of being eco friendly and preserving the nature is very much appreciated. Evening boat ride with live music was very soothing and touching. The classical live music at dinner was also very good. The morning boat ride was altogether a different experience and worth visiting. Special mention of Veg food which we ordered as Ala Carte at Ettukettu. It was very good and totally unique taste. Certainly will plan a family trip again.

It took almost one hour to reach the resort coming from Kochi . The front office were very welcoming and friendly ,Teji and all his colleagues . Noone did everything she could to make sure that we were satisfied , The rooms are clean and comfy, they do have a full lake view rooms so keep that on mind while you’re booking. The food is amazing, they offer an open buffet for all meals, Johnny was a great help , Meenakshi ,Vinil and the whole staff actually were very nice. The resort is a quiet place with some performance during dinner. They have a professional Ayurveda therapist, Dr,Liji and all of the team were more than satisfying .I highly recommend that you try the message at least once .

I came from UK to visit Kerala. I stayed in heritage lake view pool villa (April 2022) 3 night stay, heritage pool villa & presidential suite (Sep 2022) 3 night stay. We are 3 women felt safe & secure no staring very clean, everywhere green, the Vembanad lake gave calm, relaxation. Activities and boating specially sunset view cruising, stay in boat house and canal cruise were amazing. Food is amazing get world food and traditional with coconut and without coconut. All the staff are well mannered ready to serve. My special thanks to JOHNY Kitchen manager, all staff in kitchen are excellent. Staff at reception welcomed guests with respect, ready to help, NEVER SAY NO TO ANYTHING WE ASKED. Ashwini at reception served us with patience. Don't forget to ask KAVI (activities manager) to click pictures, he is an amazing free photographer ( I felt ). Kavi Thanks for taking special photos of us. Birds are welcomed us too, medium sized cranes are walking with us cleaning the pathways from insects it was amazing to observe them. The accommodations are well equipped, in good condition, no issues at all. Food served at room as well. I will visit again with my family soon, Worth for the money spent there. Glory UK

Going to Kumarakom Lake Resort for the first time we were not sure on our stay over there. I went with my mother and two sisters. After searching on internet and checking the reviews we decided to hit this resort. Initially I was little skeptical however after spending 2 days in the resort I can say this was the best experience we all had. The location is awesome, and it is well maintained. It is clean and surrounded by greenery. We stayed 4 nights at the resort which includes rejuvenation package, breakfast, lunch, dinner, and evening tea with snacks from time to time. There are other amenities like carrom, chess board etc which are free to use. The best part is the pottery making place. You can party there with the group. If there is a power cut, you can get a quick generator service.  The hospitality is too good. Anything you ask for they would come with an answer "Sure NO PROBLEM!!!!!). That was the best part. Special thanks to front desk and kitchen staff. My 5-year-old niece loved the place and thanks to the chef we didn't have to worry about her food as the chef made "khichdi" which was custom made. Live music at the restaurant was delightful. We heard about the houseboat and had to check it out and we are so glad we did! Food was amazing on the houseboat. You can't beat that! It is all indoor seating with a water view. I'm sure it is very pretty at sunset. Growing up and coming from a country where the Spa culture is prevalent and rather sacred, I am a very hard to please guest when it comes to the Spa experience. Yet, The Spa team awed me with excellent services, professional (instrumental chants/music played during the treatment sounded relaxing). Thanks to Dr. Delvin and his team. The staff and therapists were extremely nice and friendly. We left the spa feeling like pampered queens.  Guys if you are planning to enjoy the stay out, go hit this place. It’s worth a visit both enjoyment wise and money wise. Importantly this place is totally safe. Thanks to KUMARAKOM LAST RESORT.......
