Its an ideal place to relax amidst the buzzling city life in Trivandrum. The wind is awesome and cool. The location is ideal for a relaxing mood. Food is good and portions are well maintained. The boat ride is good but comparable to the Backwaters in "Vembanad Kayal" ( Kumarakom). The locations makes it apart as its goo beaches and backwaters in the same area.
I havent stayed there so am not able to give a feedback on it. The staff are very friendly and explains all the queries that you put forward...

We had a exciting start by reaching the resort in a boat through backwaters/estuary. the resort was well kept with ample space in/out doors. the resort overlooks the estuary , the other bank of the estuary being a thin long strip of sand beach beyond which is the Arabian sea. breathtaking. the pool, the boat ride to n the time spent at sand beach, the backwater cruise n ayurvedic centre were exotic, joyous n memorable. the staff of the resorts need special mention. from the manager to the reception desk, restuarant staff to house keeping staff greet you with smile n helpful.
on the leaner side.... indoor sport space is limited , not well kept. though there was enough throw in buffet , it qualifies as ok. could hav been better. expensive

The Island is beautiful and there are many resorts on the island. however if you are not staying in one of those islands you will have to hire a boat which will take you around the island. there are two options one is 1 hour and the other is 45 mins. The ride price is very high but worth the money. There is no bargaining all the agents have fixed their price.
