Received warm welcome from the reception and they explained us about in and around of the resort. We got a comfortable... More

We spent there 3 nights in Jan’14. The weather was poor, almost all the time raining so unfortunately we couldn’t go on the boat for bird watching. Maybe next time…Instead we had very pleasant Ayurveda massage treatment. The Ayurveda center is located in very quiet area of the resort. It is very spacious, there are plenty of flowers and plants... More

Been here for a team outing a few months back. Enjoyed the evening with multiple fun events organized by the team. We could play some outdoor games and some of us could use the swimming pool. The resort is very nice on the bank of the lake and the staff are very cooperative. Food was above average and no concern.... More

I started from Taj Green cove and hotel car dropped me at the jetty and island resort boat was waiting for me right there. It was a 15-20 minutes boat ride to the... More

Beautiful place to be. I had single night stay but I wish I had more days to be here. Real nature beauty. The way to reach here is also awesome. All over surrounded by backwater only way to reach here is through motor boat that pass through mangrove tree plantation. Well managed, prompt service, very nice staff.

Located on a scenic and quiet island, this resort is a thing of beauty. They have a boarding point from where a boat takes you to the island resort. The 15 minute trip itself is a pleasant ride through the backwater with amazing views. Resort is quite big with great infrastructure and facilities. Rooms are big, clean and comfortable. You...

I arranged a workshop here in March and stayed here for a week. What can I say! The ambience is perfect, which captures the very essence of Kerala's beauty. The staff were extremely courteous and went out of their way to help with every little need. I stayed in one of their premium cottages and it was lush. The weather... More
