The view from the rooms is something to die for. Lake view rooms open in a huge garden, and just adjoining is the lake. Y can sit and relax the whole day. Hire a hammock at minimal charges and enjoy nature's most fabulous creation. Staff is courteous and friendly and room service is prompt. Though is hotel is not on... More

Everything is fine in this resort except for the food, which is very bad. But the purpose of writing this review is on another account. For a confusion between my travel agent and the resort management that too for a mere Rs. 1000/-, they did not allow me to check out and the husband of the owner even warned the... More

Amazingly scenic resort, with an amazing view of the beautiful Vembanad lake, from our cottage. The Cottage we stayed in was well maintained, clean and quite spacious. The food served was very delicious with an authentic flavour of Kerala food. The leisure activities like badminton, table tennis and carroms were quite adequate for a good vacation. A special mention of... More

We went in the group of 12, all family members, had stayed in lake-view rooms. An excellent evening we had, specially with the home made food it was just yummy.....Sunset view was awesome... The arrangement you have in this rate is unbelievable. It is basically a home stay, so don't expect the professional service. Otherwise an excellent experience considering the... More

This is a decent budget hotel with a good vembanad lake view. Quite far from the town with not much public transport. Auto is the only way to get to. Rooms are decent but they had wifi connectivity issues which were not resolved even after a day

At the low price that we paid to stay here, our expectations were not high but we were soon to be pleasantly surprised. Checkin was quick and easy, and we were upgraded to waterfront bungalow. The rooms were small but clean, and the balcony had the best views of rice barges floating by several times a day. The property was... More
