We were at Ramada for 13 nights with our little baby. This hotel is breathtaking. The cottages were outstanding facing the river and on the plus side the hotel is situated away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The hotel provides outstanding performances from all areas. The breakfast was amazing and although we never had a chance to eat in the restaurant room dining was exceptionally quick and prompt and an absolute delight to have. The staff were absolutely brilliant and having met some lovely people there we made friends with them all especially my son who adored all the staff and the staff loved him.
When staying at the resort you can opt for a boat ride which is a must as it really takes you away from the hotel and into areas of small islands. Another thing which is a must is the relaxation spa which was amazing. I would recommend this hotel for families and Honeymoon couples. One thing that you must take into consideration is the hotel is located away from any main sopping centres. A taxi can be booked from the hotel which is only 15-20 mins away.
I would like to thank our driver Anand who was an absolute delight to be with for 13 nights and was very helpful in showing us around Kerela and Nitan who worked in the restaurant who was always helpful.
Thank you to all the staff and Reception for making our stay pleasant and very memorable. This is a must Resort to stay.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Feel the silence of the shores Ramada Resort is a poem. Written on the banks of a tranquil lake. You find the island of silence just 17 km from Kochi, Kerala's metropolis, and 2 km from a busy national highway. The Kumbalam backwaters is part of the famed Vembanad Lake. As the gates open, a sudden change in landscape, a riot of greenery, and silence, greet you. A harmonious mix of exhibitive desert trees and the natural flora of Kerala instil in you the same feeling you experience while watching your child take its first steps: excitement! Pass through the front office that exudes the Keralan hospitality, laced with the professionalism of Ramada, and walk into one of those 24 pool-facing villas. The long walk itself is a refreshing change, compared with boxing oneself into the usual elevator. The greenery soothes the nerves of even a weary traveller. You have started experiencing the space. And silence. Oh! Its space everywhere. Spread across 7 acres of land, Ramada Resort has only 42 living spaces. You would perhaps enjoy the largest per capita space on a resort in Kerala! Before stepping into your room, you find the ground floor is just floor, and not a room! Your kids may want to stay back and play. Let them, and you allow yourself into your cottage. In the super luxury of the room, you will come across the best amenities. Open the glass door and step into the balcony. The meandering pool stretches itself to 110 metres in front of you. Its waters almost touch the lake, which touches the eastern horizon for sure. The enormous expanse of the backwater, lined with coconut trees, will make you feel the thrill of floating freely on a ship's deck, a la Jack and Rose. It's a play of water, mixed with serenity. You feel engulfed by infinity. Almost. In the morning, the sun rising from across the waters will greet you on the balcony. You may feel like doing a sun-salutation, the most beneficial yoga posture. The fisherman in his canoe rowing against the myriad hues of morning sun will be a picture postcard scene that reminds you of the painting competition in your school days. In the evening, the reflections of the setting sun on the serene waters would take you to the empire of silence. The water, layers and layers of it, may tempt you to try some water therapy. Walk into the spa, Kerala's largest. It offers more than 25 varieties of herbal and western massages. Treat yourself to foot reflexology and leave the seat with every organ in your body relaxed. Or try Thai massage. Or Balinese. Treat your senses to the aroma of freshly fried seafood. With your stomach directing you towards the restaurant, the turn in the corridor next to it opens up suddenly into an empty expanse of greenery. The deja vu feeling of having one's own extra space suddenly overpowers the unassuming traveller. It takes some time to adjust to this heavenly feeling and finally when lunch is served, you realise even time has no boundaries in this part of the world and stands still. ... more less
