Abad Whispering Palms Lake Resort

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 27, 2012

Had a decent stay. Adjoining the beautiful waters. Spacious room. Swimming pool is real good. The restaurant had good spread of buffet and different for each meal/breakfast. Had a good evening time too as the hotel had arranged for some kerala cultural programs.

On the con side, there is nothing in the resort to spend time upon. There is no activity space for adults and it might become real boring after a couple of days.

Boat rides on cost basis were arranged by the front desk just as car for inland tourist place visits were arranged promptly.

Overall a good place to relax and enjoy nature.

We have booked the resort by having an idea in trip adviser ,I really disappointed by mosquito bites out side the room (lawn area ) and no one mentioned in there reviews
Food quality also not so good!
Otherwise lake view ,children play area ,locality ,spa ,ambience was so good!
We can go once!

Room Tip: Lake view rooms 113 and 114 in south side are really good

I was there with friends last month (Aug-2012).

The resort is well placed. Rooms are spacious enough.
The toilets are of a different kind.. with the outer half of the roof kept open.. covered with net.. Some might find it odd or at discomfort being in there... some might find it amusing.
The Breakfast Buffet (provided with the room deal) was very good.
Seemed a little pricey for the kind of rooms provided.

Room Tip: The cottages with Lake view seems to be the best option.

Whispering palms was the last halt during our Kerala trip and it was a perfect ending to a excellent trip. It has amazing view of Kumarakom lake and you can simply disconnect from the world and connect with nature. Room was comfortable and open bathroom gives it a nice touch. Would love to be back.

Room Tip: Lake facing Villas

Whispering Palms resort is a comfortable 4 star property on a riverside at Kumarakom backwaters. The lake view is really nice and peaceful, dotted with palm trees. The room decor is simple and standard. I was not happy with cleanliness though. Being a 4 start resort I was surprised to find unclean bed linen and old fittings. Anyway the pool and general facilities made up for this let-down. The pool is quite nice and spacious overlooking the riverside, almost giving the appearance of a sea shore beneath open sky. The spa is good and we had a relaxing Ayurvedic massage there. The food was satisfactory. The USP of this resort is the river view.

Recently we went for honeymoon to Kerela, we didn’t really had any idea about Abad Whispering Palms Lake Resort, just went in with no expectations. To our surprise, it turned out to be the best resort we ever stayed in. They were very kind to upgrade us from Bamboo villas to Lake facing villa. It had a view of the lake which was huge water body, you cannot see the end off. To our luck it was raining heavily being Aug month, we decided not to go any were but stay in resort and relax. The view was perfect, with lush green garden and then lake. Food at the restaurant was very tasty and good spread of choices. You have buffet option as well as ala carte. Sea food is a must to eat. From food we come to the deco and reception of the resort. Reception of the stuff was very warm and welcoming. A small shop in the campus selling art and souvenirs also gives you option to buy something to remember back home. A pool under the sky and overlooking the lake is another amazing experience to dip, swim and let go all worries. Perfect getaway for all, suggested for couples.

Room Tip: Try getting the lake facing villas.
