Firstly, the hotel's website, does not do this place justice. They totally undersell how great this place is. It's a sprawling property about 2-3 hours away from Cochin (main airport). The rooms are all 'villas' and have the best amenities. The highlight - private pools in the backyard of the rooms. Open air toilets were a great new experience for us (take a little getting used to, though). There is greenery all around and the lake adjacent to the resort. The infinity pool overlooking the lake is a great place to relax. The spa is top-notch and they have a wide variety of treatments.
The only disappointment was the food. Not that there was anything drastically wrong with it, but everything tends to taste the same. But this could be because we only ate the buffet meals and didn't try the specialty seafood restaurants.
All in all its a great place to stay and not very expensive for what you are getting. Would love to go back here for a longer stay.
