Unremarkable. The beauty of the land strikes the mind with its flawlessness. The resort is well designed by its chairperson and so thoughtfully laid out for the guests to enjoy a truly memorable experience. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. The General Manager,Mr.Varma,is spearheading the operations in a very articulate and well organized manner. The front desk is very organized and helpful. The F&B team deserves full marks for their meticulous planning and well execution of every dish to perfection of the guests palate. The housekeeping staff, the gardening team and other staff are very apt at their job and do it to perfection. We have truly had an amazing experience at KLR and would surely recommend it to guests seeking a relaxing holiday. Thanking everyone for making this such a wonderful and memorable holiday!!

Despite the covid situation, the visit was very pleasant to the resort and the covid precautions were followed there by all the staffs.We liked everything about the resort and the boathouse was the most memorable one with the cuisines made especially for us there. The sunset near the lake was very beautiful which was good for taking photographs in the evening.

We stayed at Kumarakom Lake resort in March 2021. The resort is located at the lake with well manicured garden and canals running through the resort. There are several exotic trees within the resort. The rooms and bathrooms are big in Luxury Pavillion room. It also has jacuzzi inside the bathroom. The meandering pool villa and Heritage villa with pool have open bathroom. The rooms were very well maintained and beds were comfortable. The hospitality is very good at the resort and each and everyone was very helpful right from Ms Adithya at the front desk to Mr. John at the restaurant to Mr. Kavi who has amazing skills at photography to the lady doctor at the spa. I cant remember names of all the staff members but all of them were very helpful, polite and cordial. Mr. John took special care of our group with food as we had several jain members. Even the authentic Kerala cuisine was made jain which was deliciously tasty. He would come and take our order in advance so that he can specially prepare jain food for us. The breakfast buffet had a very wide spread of south Indian, North India and continental food. Mr. Kavi is a master photographer. He can pick any cell phone and make you look awesome as if the picture was clicked using a professional camera. He is very quick with the settings and filters and create a truly memorable photographs for us to cherish lifelong. I had problem with frozen shoulder and lady doctor at spa prescribed ayurvedic oils and medicine for the same. She was very helpful. The resort has indoor sports like Table tennis, carom etc. The resorts also lends bicycle free of cost so one can go cycling. The evening sunset cruise is relaxing and fun. The infinity pool is for chilling and relaxing as the pool is not deep. Overall we had a great experience as this was the first outing after more than a year due to lockdown and COVID. I must applaud the resort for keeping it well maintained following all COVID protocols and ensuring safety of the guests.
