very good resort for fun, rooms were average but a/c was superb. the location of this resort is perfect you can enjoy views of lake, sunset, boating, fishing, cycling, nice small swimming pool, and very beautiful and well maintained garden. The dinner was not good but the breakfast buffet was okay. if you wat to book house boat for two/three hours go to market nearby you can find cheap and nice house boats very easily.

We reached Kumarakom by 5:30pm, and hence missed the sunset cruise. But the view of sunset over the lake from the hotel was breathtaking, and we enjoyed fishing in the internal canal, as well as the beautiful place with its stone construction and greenery, though it was more humid than we could take. Lack of refrigerator in the room quizzed me, (but i later learnt through my entire trip in kerala that it is pretty normal not to have a refrigerator in the room - beware!).

we took the morning boating in the backwaters, though got delayed as it was raining (oh it was so much fun!) and kids enjoyed the colorful houses along the backwaters, though again the humidity was the single killer.

food and hospitality at the hotel was good, nothing exceptional. we should have known the timings of the various activities in advance, i feel. overall we enjoyed our brief stay at Lakesong, before proceeding to kovalam.

i recommend this place if you are visiting Kumarakom, and not planning to stay in a houseboat.

Right from the time we entered the hotel we had a Wonderful & Memorable experience at Lakesong. The Lake view from the hotel is amazing. You can spend hours admiring the view. Lobby ambience is natural & creative. Though we booked a standard room, it was upgraded to Deluxe which was a pleasant surprise. Hotel has a large lawn, playing room with TT, Chess & Carroms, Swimming pool & Gym. Children enjoyed watching the Swans moving freely in the hotel premises. Lake cruise organized by the hotel was brief & enjoyable. Rooms were large and very well maintained. Overall, Lakesong offered a Memorable experience.

The rooms are average, the A/C in the rooms are not working properly, the food was a big disaster, the room service is very poor........in short no value for money and the biggest mistake by me to go there for a Holiday.............

Arrived by boat after cruising the backwaters of Kerala and we were pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Set in picturesque gardens on the shore line with a canal wending its way through the grounds, the hotel had a retreat feel to it with plenty of space to relax. The pool was adequate and the rooms were large with more than sufficient space to unpack and spread out. Not much of a view to the gardens which is real shame as you cannot appreciate the beauty of the gardens from the room. The restaurant was set down by the shore and had the option of eating in or outside, food was reasonably good although the crab curry we ordered came as a crab in curry sauce, not ideal trying to break up a small crab in a sauce that is both slippery and stains. We did ask to have it cracked open so as to get at the crab meat but the returned dish was all shell with little meat and losing a filling in India was not an option so we gave up on it. Although this issue may have been lost in translation our group did have a Kerala cookery lesson (for a small fee) which was very good. They do have spa facilities and Wifi, both at a cost and the price of a beer was reasonable (around 200/250 Inr) but given the position and the relaxed atmosphere we would go back.
