“Must visit Resort in Kumarakom”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

The resort is simply beautiful with breath taking views. We stay there on the 21st February 2013, incidentally due strike we reached the hotel early morning. The hotel staff was very helpful and suggested host of activities including yoga, boating, cycling, and spa were we could pass our time till rooms were made ready. The food was amazing and best we had on our Kerla trip. I would highly recommend the stay at the resort.

Spent an amazing 2 days here with my wife. Decided on this hotel/resort since another hotel of our choice was booked out and the reviews seemed good overall. We booked the room the same day of our arrival from Trivandrum (serious last min planning). Was very easy to reach the hotel. By the time our car pulled up to the reception, hotel staff was already there waiting for us with some moist towels. The hotel itself is in an amazing location, and has breathtaking design. We stayed in one of the cottages, a bit pricey, but at the end felt worthwhile. Evening boat rides, bar overlooking the lake( happy hour at sunset time :)), an amazing spa/health club. The only negative would be the walk within the hotel, they have buggies, but u would have to wait sometime.

my stay at the Zuri Resort & Spa was nothing short of spectacular. The resort has been very well laid out and very tastefully decorated. The rooms have been well maintained. I stayed at the Cottages and the cleanliness and tidiness was very appreciable. The hotel staff was most helpful and courteous. We also got to see some fantastic shows of cultural music, dance and kalaripayattu.

Other than the south indian food, the other cuisines weren't that great in terms of veg choices. However, that which was there was delicious.

The spa was fabulous with well trained masseuses, well decorated rooms and plenty of massage options.
A well recommended place to stay at.

We went for our first anniversary (June 2010) to Kerela and it was a truly marvellous experience. The staff at Zuri was very helpful and friendly. Our stay was made extra memorable by their efforts and ever smiling faces. The houseboat was a truly amazing experience too. It was all to ourselves!!

Thank you Team Zuri!!

During the trip of 9 days in Kerala, this was the best property we had stayed. Service, Rooms, cleanliness, hotel area, food everything was far beyond our expectations. It was our anniversary and I can say they have made it special. The hotel area is quite big and they provide cycle to tourist to move in the hotel which I have seen common in USA but not in India. If money is not the constraint, one should visit this property while visiting Kerala.

Room Tip: Take the one having balcony across Lake.

I spent recently 4 nights in this wonderful, peaceful resort with my wife. We could really relax and enjoyed the wide offering of the ayurvedic relaxation massages (incl. free counselling from a doctor). The staff at the restaurnant (cooks / waiters) was very friendly and helpful. The food variety was also excellent and very nicely presented.
We can highly recommend this resort to anyone who wants to get away from the hectic life for a couple of days.

Only stayed for one night and it was a beautiful location, particularly enjoyed the 7am yoga class on the island in the lake, what a treat. The check in at reception was not at all welcoming and a problem with the room booking was very reluctantly sorted out, we didn't get offered the towels or coconut drinks that other people seem to have received. However, apart from that the staff were very nice and helpful. The food at lunch, dinner and breakfast was good with plenty of choice and the iced tea was amazing. The entertainment in the evening was excellent and the setting for it was lovely.
