we were there during the sweltering heat. but once at the resort we had many options to cool down. This property is apparently taken on a short lease by Club Mahindra and they still sport the earlier name "Indriya" .
The resort is sandwitched perfectly between the backwaters and the sea.
this was our 5th Club Mahindra holiday and we found many common factors missing but there were much more to compensate. there is no in-house utility/provisional store. and they didn't provide a stamp for the kids' Club Passport. Rooms were spacious and grand Kerala style. The air conditioning was good. The lobby A/c had problems on the third day of our stay and it remained so. Fun dining spread was good. on the last night of our stay we enjoyed the a-la-carte @ The Malabar. great Kerala cuisine. it turned windy and our outdoor table was quickly shifted to indoors.
The swimming pool overlooking the backwaters is excellent and they served us chilled tender coconuts at the pool.
early morning bicycle ride was refreshing. sunset view by the beach is breath taking!
a minimum of 3 days stay will give lots of options. we traveled to Fort Cochin. Our vehicle was transported in a ferry. Visit french palace and Jews street at Mattanchery.
apart from 2 club mahindra restaurants I would suggest 'Chilliout' (its not Chillout, its Chilli-out) a beach shack run by a frenchman Eddie. they have european cuisine like Tuna/Beef grilled and burgers.
A short house boat ride at the Club is highly recommended.
