Kumarakom Lake Resort
Ranked #4 of 26 Hotels in Kumarakom
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 15, 2013

We stayed at Kumarakom Lake Resort in January 2013 and cannot rate this resort high enough.
Everything about this resort perfect, from our beautiful villa with private pool, a night spent cruising the backwaters on their houseboot, the gardens, the food, the service, all top class.

The infinity pool is exquisite, will definitely go back. The staff are amazing, best we have ever encountered.

The rooms are clean and well maintained and nothing was too much trouble for the staff

In particular we would like to commend Sreejith and Vaney Cario and their teams.

We stayed here for 5 nights over New Year and were really surprised at how lovely it was. We have a meandering pool villa which was lovely and very quiet. This pool was also quiet, however they really need to put sun-loungers around this area for room guests. The pool is idyllic but there is only about 20 loungers for all the rooms. The service at the pool is a joke, it is so slow and comes in stages, so you may get your chips and then your sandwich 50 minutes later. The standard of food is really good and they are fabulous at catering to allergies, nothing was too much bother. We also spent an extra night on the houseboat which was nice and the service was fantastic. as nice as it was, I am sure you could go out for the day and it would be just as nice. Staying overnight doesn't really bring anything extra. The NY dinner was overpriced and I do think resorts need to give guest another option over Xmas and NY as it is getting ridiculous what they are charging. I would return here though but not for NY!

This is a great place to see Cochin from or just relax. Knocks Marari into a cocked hat.

pool rooms are excellent (although better to have the wardrobe in the room not the open air bathroom). Excellent service levels. Super pool and fantastic views over the lake from everywhere. Perfectly adequate gym. Good sea-food restaurant.

just a few minor things the resort could address: the internet sign on process is a pain, and i would rather it was free and just embedded in the price; virtually none of their wine list was available.

Tips: ask for a large fresh smoothie at breakfast;

Room Tip: best on the south east corner...

We were on a tour to see India. Not s spa vacation. The setting was beautiful. We did not partake in the spa offerings. The meandering pool was very nice. Our room was air-conditioned, but the entire bathroom was outdoors. The service and food in the restaurants was fair. Spa vacation OK. Two day stop as part of a larger plan to see India, no.

This was one of the best property i have visited till date. To start with the rooms, very clean and tastefully designed, with all antique style furniture, wooden roofs and flooring .. the infinity pool by the lake is wonderful. we enjoyed the evening boat ride with live music, pottery, spa treatment and yoga in the mornings. With a pool in the room, pool all around, we had a feel of living in an island.. to talk about food, it was delicious and made in authentic Kerala cuisine. staff was very helpful and caring esp with my young son i got all help i could ask for.. The kathakali performance on Saturday night was the highlight!! over all I loved every bit of this place and will definitely come back!!

My wife, me and our 7 month old daughter spent 2 days here. The best rooms - meandering pool villas-- best food -- sea food and punjabi. The staff is what makes this place better than the TAJ. The entire resort has 200 yr old wood in most rooms and the plantation is amazing. Definately the only place to stay at komarakom--
