“Tranquility and one with nature”
Reviewed June 6, 2010

Thanks to the offseason, our extended family group of 14 members had the entire resort to ourselves and we made the best of it. Each residence is an independent unit & we got the ones that overlooked the pool and the vast Vembanad Lake. The breathtaking view of the placid lake early in the morning with the swimming pool so close by was so surreal. The restaurant served up some delicious finger-licking food - both local favourites and general Indian cuisine.

We had very nice time at Ilona Lake Resort for the new year celebration and enjoyed staying with lot of fun.. I recoment this resor for people who are looking with more cleanliness and personal care. We also enjoyed the food and speciality I have seen that the chef has prepared some dishes as per our recipie given by friends. The kindness and care taken by the staff were appreciated. We also went for a boat ride upto Pathiramanal an island located just 15minutes away from the resort. Good Resort.
