“Scenic backwaters hotel with good value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2014

We stayed here in lake view cottage, which was amazing. The whole of backwaters is breathtaking beauty. It made our day by just watching the calm waters in the morning from our cottage to the beautiful sunset ... The sound of chirping birds, enjoying a drink on the hammock outside our cottage.all this was absolute bliss and utmost relaxing. The place is away from city hustle bustle and one can just enjoying the water view or chill in swimming pool.
The hotel rooms were neat n clean, decent size cottage rooms. one needs to be careful of insects in the night time. Ambience around the reception area is good too. The hotel can redo few of cottage rooms with jacuzzi bath.
We got good photos clicked in the ambience of the reception and garden outside the cottage. Overall it's good value for money.

Room Tip: Choose a cottage with lake view ...it's serene

We checked into the Lake-facing suite, the only one of its kind at the resort... and had a great experience. The resort is beautiful, overlooking the backwaters, and presented plenty of opportunities for family pictures. Rooms are spacious, and bathrooms are even more so - with a unique open-sky portion. Swimming pool is well situated and provides a nice view of the lake. North-Indian food was made to our taste.
The activities other than swimming are limited - but that didn't bother us on our short stay.

The view from this resort is awe inspiring. Rooms are spacious, the lake view from room's balcony was beautiful, specially during the sun set.
Cleanliness was a plus.
Staff isn't courteous and food is average to poor.
The pool inside and a lotus pond were well maintained and clean.
Location of this resort is a plus. Prefer a beach resort.

The first sight of the large ocean like lake as soon as you enter the reception puts a smile on one's face. Its a great location to catch the sun set and take rides in the back waters. The rooms are lake facing and non-lake facing. Both are large and airy. The non lake facing rooms have bathrooms which are semi-open to the sky! Being in Kerala, one wanted to taste good authentic Keralite veg food like avial, aappam with veg stew etc. ( yes- surprisingly there is more to Kerala food than fish and prawns!) - but no such thing. The only thing keralite was mashed tapioca with onion chutney! Otherwise we could have been in any restaurant in north India. At breakfast, the potato masala had gone bad!

In a beautiful setting, next to a lake this resort was paradise after a long drive, on a hot, humid day. A great swimming pool, with recliners and umbrella's. Evening meal and breakfast was good, with a big selection of dishes plus a chef and staff on-hand to advise. Room was comfortable, with veranda onto a pool.

location on the lakeside is superb, with views of the houseboats and fishermen. Room was clean and large. Restaurant was reasonable meal for two was 1000inr(£10).
There are no alcoholic drinks available which was not made clear on any of the info we saw for the hotel and there are no nearby shops.
The pool looked very inviting with the backdrop of the lake and palm trees.

Room Tip: Try for a room with lakeside view, some look out onto a stagnant area of water, which was not so goo...

I wouldnt know how this would be a stay away for a family, however we enjoyed as a group. We were a team of 60 people who visited this resort and did have a fantastic experience. Everything from the Food, Rooms, Pool and other extra curricular activities were well managed and we did enjoy the 2 days that we stayed at the place.

Room Tip: Try and ask for a lake facing room.
