“Great Relaxing Holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2008

We stayed her for 2 nights in early december. It is a great hotel with good staff. There were performances by the pool both evenings. The food is good, though you might want to try the ala carte option for variety.

For activities, there is nothing much. You could go for a cruise in a house boat, the hotel will arrange for it. Or you could just spend time sitting near the back waters and taking in the beautiful view.

It might be better to take a lake view room if your budget allows.

Will definitely go back!!!

This is a beautiful resort set just beside the big lake. I was here for 5 days with my wife. We were looking for tranquil vacation in nature and we got just that. Resort has nice lake side rooms. It hasa a small pier to enjoy sunsets and quiet mornings, hammocks, nice swimming pool with a breeze from the lake and very nice indian cuisine varieties. Only one problem was there are lot of bugs in the night but thats outside the room so that was not a big deal for us. In short, we liked the stay and are definitely coming back whever we can.

We set out to stay at another hotel that several friends had used and recomended. We were disappointed that space was not available and I used this site and our agent in India to find the best replacement. We were totally impressed with the result.

This is an India based chain (Abad) that seems to be able to serve the Indian market as well as the western one with an approach that works. There are several types of accomodation but ours was a huge cottage with a private garden and a Kerala type exterior washroom. It was amazingly modern, spacious and very pleasant.

The food is buffet style Indian with a huge selection which allows us western types to see and taste the variety. I don't think anyone could walk away unsatisfied and you could learn a lot.

Service was great. Bars non-existant although they're happy to provide ice and mixes. Locale, pool and views supurb.

If you are looking for all the comforts of a western hotel, this won't cut it. If you are looking fo a 5 star local experience with great service, you've found it.

Great all inclusive resort in Kerala. Nice pool, wonderful location near the lakes, when you rent a lake boat it will come and pick you up at the pier in front of the hotel.

Clean and fresh pool

Lots of choice of food, mostly veg.

No alcohol available, able to buy your own and drink in your room, none in public areas.

This hotel was stunning, beautifuly located on the watersedge of the infamous Keralan backwaters. The room was lovely and the food was good to. The swimming pool was very good with a stunning backdrop, however be warned - the bathrooms are open air with a mosquito net as a ceiling - however the bugs will get in! - a tip is keep the light of, the door shut and make sure you take insect repellent!
