Kondai Lip was the second resort my wife and I stayed in on our trip to Kerala. The first was near Munnar. Had gone there after going through the reviews on this website. It is as serene as you see it online or probably even better. It is cut off from the mainland by a few meters and you be ferried to the resort on a wooden boat.
We were warmly welcomed with a refreshing pomegranate drink. Then we were showed our room, which was an absolute delight. Everything was mint fresh and impeccably clean. The room was sufficiently big, too. The most amazing thing is it looks like a typical Kerala home of the olden times. I being a Keralite myself, brought up in Delhi, was transported back to the period when I used to visit my ancestral home during my annual school vacations.
The green area around the resort is strikingly beautiful, with coconut trees and various plants, and with the view of a water pool straight in front of us.
The staff is courteous and service, faultless. We also enjoyed the tasty buffet breakfast that had plenty to offer.
Superb stay overall.
