Hi Everyone
Just to share a good experience of stay we had at Velankanni Lake Resort - I must vouch its a worthy place to stay for a family , the ambience and the way the cottages are placed around the lakes stratigically is excellent , the room we choose was a Non-AC room (Oct was a pleasent climate so NON AC was fine ) the room was decent , well maintained.
The Inhouse resturant is also good place to dine , we had a 3 day program so ended up having breakfast and dinner which was delicious , and priced right.

Have a word of advice for people who stay , if you plan to carry snacks -sweets or some light food - please make sure you have some plastic ,vaccum containers-or Zip Pouch to keep the food (Basically your Open Snacks ,Sweets )in a sealed condition_ this is because very fast the ants start populating! Thanks to Nature on how quickly ants find their way out of the blue !

Over-all a good experience of stay - the prices for the Non-AC room was also affordable. I would like to reccomend this place. /Sam

Room Tip: Want to be left alone from the rest of the crowd _ then -NonAC Room - 109/110 etc.....in the small c...

Hope this review is useful to all , trust me anyone who wants to stay peacefully and happily with your family and friends please do stay in VLR. I stayed with my family during festival time in the month of September and I felt like I was in Kerala , the place was so clean and neat with cool breeze. My four days of stay went like 4 mins. All these days we had food from grandma restaurant which gave us the homely feel,especially the Chinese fried chicken was so excellent. The best part of the resort is hospitality really we admired Mr.sethupathy who is the owner of this resort was so kind and friendly with us he became one of our family member within these four days. Real thanks to the whole VLR team for your hospitality and friendship . All please have stay soon in VLR

I recently stayed at Velankanni Lake Resort and I must tell you that i wanted to write this piece of review and let the people know how much enjoyed staying here. After all the hustle and bustle life in the city, i could not ask for more than peace and tranquil - VLR offered me both in abundance. The property is very such a sight to watch and it is so connected to the nature that you get to be a part of it too...and that's not all. The owner is a nice and friendly person and he makes you feel so comfortable and happy.

The service has been very good - always helpful and the food in the Grandma restaurant was very homely and different for once! - it is on the whole very nice and it is an excellent place to stay...a definite Check OUT!!

Room Tip: You can choose the water villa - if you come over as family. For 10 pax - there is a different room...

We had an opportunity to stay at our Velankanni Lake Resort and found that it was a wonderful experience. The rooms/cottages are aesthetically/neatly designed with an eye for every detail. Regarding food, we observed that once we entrust our requirements to the Reception,everything is taken care of.The rooms are right on the lake and give us a refreshing change when compared to the other concrete / brick and mortar rooms found elsewhere.
We trust that once guests experience the hospitality at VLR,they will never go out of its fold.
Many a time Mr Sethupathy, the energetic Proprietor takes care of the guests personally.

Room Tip: IT is better to book the rooms in advance.

Its a wonderful place to stay. The food was awesome and perfectly homemade taste.
The building concepts are very nice and its emphasized even in door knobs. Though its a Shrimp farming , converted into a resort, you will never feel so.

Dear Guest

Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback regarding our
Resort. I am certainly disappointed that about the Complimentary Break- Fast was finished around 10 Am.

Since you are a Cleartrip member you should aware already it is reflected in the site itself

1).we are not providing the complimentary break fast for Non-A/C Rooms.

2).Only we are providing complimentary break- fast for those who are staying in water villa
A/C COTTAGES in our resort.

3) Those who are staying in Non-A/C they will order in early we will provide for them & it is chargeable.

Any how,
I would like to apologize on behalf of the Resort and its team for your stay.

The interaction with our staff member with regards to your comments about the break-fast
we assured in future it will not happen, we will inform to the guest at the time of Check-in.
once again sorry sir.
