I was traveling with my family and stayed at Guruvayur. We made plans to travel to Kumarakom in the morning and started checking out hotels & resorts immediately. This one stood out for the location and amenities. I called up and spoke to the front desk who were extremely helpful and arranged for the check-in inspite of it being a... More

I did the booking thru email with them. After reaching there seeing their tariff only came to know they charged me very high, which was not all worth for that place. I felt cheated by them. I advice to go in-direct and book.

You can sit outside the cottages for hours comfortably 3. Very nice staff.. Mostly run by ladies 4. Very near to the boat jetty for a ride in the lake Cons:... More

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
