Our package included the buffet dinner and breakfast. Though we found the dinner to be passable, breakfast was a delight. But all in all, a pleasant stay, and would... More

We had an amazing stay at the KTDC resort..The wooden cabins in the jungle with canals in between and birds chirping & flying over all the time makes one wonder if it is a reality or a wonderland. Just watching the sunset sitting by the poolside is so calming & relaxing. One of the must visit places for nature lovers.... More

Waterscapes definitely charmed us as we entered through the reception building, walking along the canals on the stone paved pathways. The cottages on stilts with the canals flowing below (or adjacent) and the greenery all around does make an impressive setting. As we reached our lake view cottage and climbed the stairs to reach the sit-out we were looking into... More
