The location is very good. You can spend hours sitting in the large beautiful lawn facing the Vembanad lake. Food is amazing. Rooms are spacious and relaxing. The staff are very cordial at front office, restaurant and room service. A wonderful place to stay in this budget.

Restaurant staff were especially helpful, particular as they 'guided' as through...

The location of the resort is excellent and so is the rooms. However I feel the food needs to be improved. The Manager, Mr. Bibin Thomas is a very helpful gentleman and he made our stay a truly memorable one. The backwater cruise is simply out of the world.

The view from our room was gorgeous, especially in the morning with the flowers blooming on the pond. The staff was one of the more attentive ones I've encountered. From the moment we checked in, they were very thorough in explaining everything (location, wi-fi,...
