“Over rated and at best a 2 star, India's own Faulty Towers”
Reviewed December 26, 2009

Such a poor and disappointing hotel. Broken toilet seat, bathrooms not particularly clean.
Pool area a joke, dreadful patio, no member of staff to move heavy and outdated pool furniture. Rude and unhelpful staff, food less than satisfactory. Spa seems antiquated. Wi Fi set up was dreadful and problematic. The list is endless.....
I travel extensively throughout India, and do not recommend this hotel if you require any sort of luxury..

The Resort is Facing a River. The views are Fantastic. The Ayurvedic center is good but not upto date with the Ayurvedic Technics. Ayurveda is an art in healing individuals according to their problems. Here the center treats every one the same which is contrary to the Ayurvedic principles. Though the Massages are good, the Yoga lessons are given by the teacher who is good at Yoga but fails to explain the positions (this is due to lack of English). Ayurvedic and Yoga should be dispensed in a very quite environment and that is lacking at Kadavu Resort. The Main road has Bridge that spans ove the river and the resort is Next to it. The blaring horns of the vehicles start at 6.30 am to 10.30 - 11 pm. It is a toll bridge hence traffic builds both ways throughout the day. The service of the Hotel is not very good. It lacks efficiency in many departments. We were staying in the Cottages which were the most expensive. We were ther for 2 weeks. The Shower did not have hot water and after the morning walk you need a shower. You had to order Bottled water from Housekeeping and not Room Service. There was a fire under our cottage and we were told to move to another cottage by the maintenance staff immediately. They did not see that we were having our dinner in the room. On the last day the Dinner was served cold. First time I have had BBQ chicken and fish cold in a 5 star resort. The worst was that for the next 4 days after the fire we were in another cottage, the management did not have the courtesy to check up on us nor any apology came by. I would definitely not go to this resort. It was good money wasted.
