I spent 10 nights at Fragrant Nature, Kollam 6th-17th August. I had the most amazing relaxing time. Yoga daily at 7am outside next to the water followed a daily massage at the spa. The spa staff were brilliant, especially the 2 girls. Our room was lovely with a lake view. The food was great, plenty of choice. All the hotel staff, from the gardener's and cleaners to the front desk and manager couldn't do enough for us. They were all so friendly and helpful. We went on 2 boat trips from the hotel and a couple if trips further afield driven by the hotel's driver. Everything about the holiday was fantastic. I will definitely go back one day and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

Fragrant Nature is a 'Special Place.' Not just because of the spectacular natural surroundings, its the staff who truly make it super. Every staff member is exceptionally welcoming friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble, always ready to share a heartfelt smile and friendly gesture,whatever they may be doing. I have just returned from running a yoga & Ayurveda retreat at Fragrant Nature.This is my 3rd visit.It never disappoints. The daily visiting Yoga master supported our yoga practice with dignity ,respect and skill as he managed the range of experience within our group. The front if house manager served us in the way a a personal concierge would. Primarily helping and advising with many different types of arrangements. Nothing was too much trouble. An absaloute legend. We felt in very capable, safe hands. The food is exceptional. As a vegan I was personally impressed with the catering.Delicious range of dishes avaliable breakfast, lunch and dinner. Both buffet style or order off the menu options. Even accomodated individual requests.Just superb. Staff again made dining such a pleasurable experience. The sunrises and sunsets are beautifully spectacular. I was initially concerned Fragrant Nature might not have survived the challenges Covid presented but although there are a few facilities that need a little further TLC ( mainly swimming pool & jaccuzi) the whole place is functioning excellently. There is so much I can positively share but in summary Fab place , Outstspectacular taff , delicious food! Ohm Shanti

Overall ambiance was good. Pool was well maintained. We also tried full body massage in spa. It was good but bit expensive compared to other spa in Varkala or even Kovalam. Boating was really awesome. We thought it would be cancelled due to rain, but somehow they made it for us. At fishing point and walk way, kid security can be improved a bit, as the lake is at a very close proximity for kids. Overall landscape was good and calm. One issue we had is, we got the last villa and so we had to walk all the way to restaurant and pool everytime, which was hectic during the rain.

Food was nice but the restrictions were a little annoying, I mean certain limitations like after 7 only kitchen will be open, etc. Pool wasn't maintained well. Rooms were good and expensive too, with which they add extra 65 rs for a 22 rs bottle water, kept in each room.

We opt for "Own your pool " package for 2 night which include pool villa ,,Chocolate cake ,candle light dinner , 30 min boat ride and Floral decorated bed on the arrival date. it is recommended for Honeymoon couples we also booked their Spa which was Fine. for some of full body massage ,head message is not covered ... check with the service person before start Food taste was excellent ,but they need to add some more Kids menu item. only issue in we face is the AC in the room was not functioning properly which was sorted out shortly pool is well maintained and it is only 80% private not full 100% private ..pool water cleaning /servicing place is outside of the villa which has direct visibility to the pool .. so you have to decent while using the pool over all it is a very good place for a family /couple weekend
