This review is long overdue! My wife and I had the most amazing stay at one of Zuri Kumarakom's pool villas. The property is immaculately maintained and the staff are super friendly and attentive. Special mention goes to David, Froystan and Arjun who went out of their way to pay attention to our needs at the restaurants. The seafood at Laguna Bass is OUTSTANDING! Compliments to the chef. What amazed us was the responsiveness of the staff - I called in some broken planks in near our pool early in the morning and by the time we were back from breakfast they were changed - a span of 35 minutes or so! All I can say is I hope they keep up the good work!

every thing about this place is great. Rooms are clean and spacious and each with their own balcony overlooking the water. Great gym, really good food and top class service. Excellent bars, one with a full sized snooker table. Touring the backwaters is the thing to do in Kumarakom and it is a really pretty spot. pottering up the river watching the local people go about their lives on th river and the big houseboats cruise around is amazingly relaxing. Check before including the Bird Sanctuary in the trip however as at the wrong time of year there are more birds around your hotel than in the sanctuary. We negotiated a 4 hour trip is a 10 seater boat for 2500 rupee although the going rate is much more.

Overall nice experience.Room was really good and spacious.Health club was worthy and had a nice view overlooking the backwaters.swiming pool was good and clean.Restaurant had fair amount of variety and good food.had a nice games room with a good pool table.have other activities like fishing,cycling,pedal boating etc.the only complaint we had was that the evening sunset cruise was not available,b'cos of sea weeds which didn't allow the boat to come near the hotel's boat jetty.

Thank you for the feedback and wonderful to hear that the resort met expectation.
One of the activities in Kumarakom is the option of House Boat cruises and Motor Boat cruises from the Resort Jetty.
Subject to weather and government regulations with stipulated norms these activities are allowed and operated for leisure.

We were on our honeymoon and stayed at Zuri for 2 days. It was a very memorable experience for us. The hospitality is great. Food however is average in terms of taste. The location of the resort and the rooms are outstanding. Specially the pool villa. Highly recommended.

Thank for choosing The Zuri Kumarakom as a destination for your stay.
The resort caters to a different segment of people with a multi cuisine spread at the all day Dining Restaurant Lime Tree.
Special request is also made available through the Chef for varying palates.
