This KTDC Resort is located just beside the Famous Vembanad Backwater Lake at Kumarakom. It was 2 hours drive from Kochi Airport and we were amazed to see the place. It has lush green campus and one can enjoy beautiful view of the lake from the room. This resort can not be found on KTDC website for some unknown reason, though we found it on ezeego1 website. The room amenities was similar as you may expect at any 2/3 star hotel and the service was satisfactory. The breakfast was complimentary and included varieties of south Indian and other dishes. The resort has in-house restaurant and food quality was ok. Though, you have to order from their menu card 2 hours before the lunch/dinner time. The receptionists are not so professional, though they can help you if you need to rent car for sightseeing or book houseboat cruise. Overall it was a nice experience and I would love to go again!
