“Memorable Stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2010

From the time we entered Zuri they did everything to pamper us. As we stepped out of our car a group of traditional musicians (about 8 of them) started playing drums and flute!! we were offered coconut water to cool us a bit. Staff were keen to help and service was great.
view from the balcony looked over the lagoon and into the backwaters.
Food was delicious with a lot of variety in lunch and dinner buffet. When we wanted to taste an authentic kerela dish, even though it was not on menu the chef made it for us!!! from complimentary boa ride in the lagoon to riding bikes around the resort, cigar rooms and wonderful seafood restaurant...it offers a complete package.
3 days of pampering left us wanting more!! Will come back again.

Where can i start? We were unlucky to get our lugagge misplaced by Jetlite, but from minute 1, the staff at the Zuri took it as their problem and did anything in their hands to get my lugagge back. Bad but great start to my trip thanks to the Zuri staff.
We went in low season, so we had the 18 luxurious place to ourselves, which meant the staff was also eager to make our stay the best possible so they did everything plus to make us enjoy our time.

If you wish to try all dishes in India, then this is your place! Chefs Chandra and Arpit made sure we made the most out of our full board by asking what we wanted to have. Every evening was a feast to the senses and excellent service always provided by sweet employees like Tijo., Anuraj, Princy, Kiran and Brian. Everyone in this resort is trained to the best of their capacity and the quality of the food is as top as top can be.

My heart was warmed from day one and i cannot say with words how these people managed to make my stay in India the best one ever.

Do not look anywhere else!! too expensive when you can stay in such a 7 star hotel for the same money as you would spend in a 4 star in Europe. Everything was special about this place, food, service, quality, room size, everything!!!! With the Shangrila in Oman, this is one of the best places i ve ever stayed in.

Make sure you have time to speak to the staff in this place, they will make your holiday in India a memorable one. They have an uninterested motive to make you happy. You can sense that in every single employee. I have been fortunate to spend some time with Tijo, a professional waiter working for the Zuri who has chaperoned me to some exotic places in Kerala that i would not have visited if it wouldnt be for him. He made a mark in my holiday experience to India and i shall be forever grateful for his hospitality and genuine desire to make a friendship. A friend i have gained and shall never forget.

May i just also mention Princy, the lady at the restaurant who dressed us up in traditional Sarees and took time to ensure my friend recovered from stomach ache.

What a wonderful place!!! Book the Zuri and you wont regret it!!!

quite & beautiful luxurious place far away from hustle-bustle of busy life. only boring thing is journey to the place from cochi airport which is tiring [takes two hours minimum], but place is heaven created on earth . house boat of hotel is costly so we opted for pvt operator but i'll strongly recommend in house house boat 'laguna'. back waters of kumarakom though vast, are monotonous. do take a village canal tour in kochi.

This review has been long due...Stayed there on my honeymoon in December last year and I must stay that it was an enthralling experience...They upgraded us to a lovely villa and treated us like Kings...also every couple of hours there was either a cake or chocolates or fruits coming in....these guys at Zuri really spoil you man....The place was HUGE and were given cycles to move around the property...the service,the ambience,the food was impeccable...kudos to Aditya Matta(the GM) I am definitely going back!! - Rajesh Lulla

We have never experienced service like that we received at the Zuri Kumarakom - we were treated like royalty as soon as we arrived and it continued throughout the whole stay. The resort itself is beautiful and we were lucky enough to be upgraded to a pool villa, which was amazing. The food was also delicious, with lots of choice. Very good stay.

Probably one of the best resorts i have stayed in... .....
We arrived at the airport and they were dot on time to pick up up even though we confirmed the airport pick in the morning of our flight which was scheduled at 1pm.They transfered us to the spped boat which took us straight to the hotel( experienced the lake even before checking in)

Their rooms across are wonderful and spacious , we were in the pool villa and it was splendid..!!!! Best sunset views from the private jacuzzi pool( liked the size...not a plunge pool) , our villa host was very helpful and provided us with almost everything we asked for . They have a very nice bathroom and an outside shower.My wife did'nt feel too well the 2nd day and they did not have a stock of the required medicines( which was a downside). They helped us commute from our room to the main restaurant (quite a walk)in the buggys (golf carts) everytime with a smile.There was some sort of entertainment in the ampitheater almost every night for the 4 nights we were there and we loved it. They took us on a motor boat for a sunset cruise and was nice...!!!

When we checked out after 5 days , it felt we had checked in yesterday and wanted to stay more....!!!

All in all a great experience and a must visit property for all they have to offer.

Suggestion: a small golfing green would add a lot of value to the property/proper stock of some regular medicines...

The Zuri Kumarakom was where I had my wedding. For two days, my husband and I, along with another 200 people - family and friends from all corners of the globe - were extremely well looked after, pampered and experienced the closest thing to heaven in God's own country! All arrangements were impeccable, from the housekeeping, to the food, to the wedding venues and most of all, the hospitality of the staff. There was not one single complaint from any of our guests. One can only imagine how difficult this must have been for all the staff at Zuri to achieve but they pulled it off. And in great style! This really is the perfect holiday venue - be it for a wedding or a weekend get-away.
