We landed around 1900 hrs from Thekkady. On seeing the Infinity pool with the pool lights on it was inviting. Right on the bank of the Vembanadu Lake in natural back water surroundings We had our rooms which were great and the best thing that I found was the attached toilets with natural Ventilation. The room were well stocked. The dinner buffet was a decent spread and also the morning breakfast buffet. The place is great for photography and you can get photographed facing the garden or facing the lake. Evening you can sit and watch the boats passing by and enjoy the sight. The only incident at the Restaurant that put us off was the service for À la carte ordered for Lunch. The hotel it seems has more interest in seeing that their buffet sells and we were clear that for half that money we could have it ordered from the menu.(we were 8 pax) The order was taken with a statement that it would take half an hour we agreed and accepted that. The food started arriving in piece meal ( the Indian breads came after the side dish was served. the kids almost finished the side dish before they got their Breads) I was the last to get up and it was 2hrs for serving the last man. We would have travelled and reached the next destination. It all happened in 2hrs because we kept pushing them. Some ordered items did not arrive at all until we asked for the same. This was the only thing that we thought should improve. Either abolish À la carte and sell only buffet or take care of people who have ordered on À la carte too. The bill took another 20min to arrive.But the bill had all the items right with right prices and no discount or sorry was offered on the bill.
