We had just a one night stay at KLR having been dropped at the jetty by our rice boat. The welcome was lovely and we were upgraded to a meandering pool villa which was a nice surprise. The resort is beautiful and our room amongst the nicest we've stayed in - spacious, tasteful, very clean, with an incredible outdoor bathroom,... More

I can't tell you how beautiful this place is. You have to see it to believe it. You don't feel you are in a hotel but rather that you are living amidst a beautiful village paradise.

After three weeks of travelling in India, it was delightful to take a break from our hectic itinerary and relax in such a beautiful resort. Staff was lovely, setting perfect (especially our own infinity pool outside our bedroom), special dining room food excellent.

After a less than stellar visit to Periyar, we told our driver to head straight for our next hotel. We didn't realize we were going to be at such a lovely resort. We were greeted warmly, given an amazing room, with the biggest indoor jacuzzi I have ever seen. We had our own terrace. The grounds were lovely, the food... More

The hotel has real quality and we should have had a great stay but.... We had Room 125. All windows are overlooked by paths or public areas. The room is at the public buildings end of the meandering pool and had nowhere private to sit. As we had to keep the blinds drawn a lot, it was dark. We asked... More

Idyllic setting, every need catered for. Afternoon tea not to be missed, an entertainment in itself - the snacks are a real treat. At times over-fussed at mealtimes when you just want to be left to enjoy the food. Activities to occupy you: pottery, weaving, fishing. Worth a visit!!
