We had a one night and 2 days stay in this resort. First of all approach to this resort in itself is an adventure. Passing through a narrow road and then reaching back water. The resort in built on other side of the back water so a boat will be sent by property owner to pick you up. Car needed to be left there itself. Property is small but very good. You will see lots of Houseboats passing by all the day-time.
Food: Awesome. Simply loved the fish preparation. Must try if you are sea-food lover. We gave our food choices for lunch in advance and Mr. Ranjith (owner) made sure it is ready on time. Since it is not a professional hotel the service was bit slow but food was worth it at the end. Breakfast was equally good.
Staff: The manager there with whom we interact most of the time was pretty courteous.
Rooms: Neat and clean. Bathroom had some leaky fittings but can't expect more in such room rates. Overall good.
Mr Ranjith arranged the shikara for us at nominal rates. And also obliged us by offering us Taadi (Palm wine) at dinner from nearby market.
Only drawback staying here is that since you have to cross back water and rely on boat from owner your mobility outside the resort is extremely restricted. You to rely on food given by them most of the time. But still a perfect value for money homestay.
