Cocobay Resort
Ranked #14 of 26 Hotels in Kumarakom
Reviewed November 9, 2011

The resort offers a luxurious stay with well furnished, beautiful rooms with all the modern amenities. The resort is designed well with an outdoor pool and several options for entertainment such as cards, pool table. The extra services offered for house-boats, speed boats and others are reasonably priced. The restaurant offers a wide variety of meals, thought the menu for meals is fixed for each day. The staff is helpful and personable and the room service quick. The view from the resort is fantastic and it offers a nice entry into the Kerala backwaters, by taking the visitors to the resort by a country boat from the parking area. It is an ideal location for taking in the backwaters.

We stayed at the Cocobay Resort during the last week of October 2011. The entry to this resort is by a country boat - yes, you need to park your car in their parking place and then board a boat and travel for some 200 meters. The welcome was really good - garlands and welcome drink!

The resort looks pretty impressive and the rooms have excellent furnishings - Kerala is anyway known for excellent woodwork in India. The Ayurveda Spa is pretty good. Food is prepared on order, so be prepared to wait for 30 minutes at least. It tastes pretty good. There is a swimming pool right at the entrance.

This is an ideal place to stay for 1 night or a maximum of 2 nights. If you spend more time than this, you are likely to get bored unless you want to meditate or just laze around in tranquil surroundings. I recommend this place for a short stay. Hope you found this review useful.

A excellent place to stay for a vacation with family, the entrance to the hotel is great and very very unique, something you will love and cherish. A quite and a relaxing place where you need to visit to rejuvenate yourself. The best thing being its not a huge resort so you get quality time to spend at the swimming pool and other services. Personally the location of the pool is excellent from where you get the best view of the sunset. Quality of service and if you like only north India food then please be prepared.

I had stayed in cocbay for a night along with my family on 06-10-11. The approach road to the parking/enquiry office from the main road is narrow and one will be in doubt whether this is the actual road to the hotel place. you will have to park your vehicle in the parking office and take a boat which takes 5 mins. travel to reach the hotel place. The hotel reception has given a warm welcome on entry. The rooms are better and well maintained including the toilets. The rooms are designed in a typical kerala style architecture. The hotel was well located in the back-water and it has a stunning view of the sea and you can really enjoy the sunset. The hotel also has a swimming pool where the children can spend some good time in swimming. The hotel has ample open space to sit and relax while enjoying the natural scenaries. you can watch lot of fishermen and tourist boats passing the hotel premises in the sea. we approached the hotel restaurant for dinner and i could find that their service personnel are new and very much inexperienced. They took almost more than an hour to provided the placed order and the quality is not at all upto the expectation. They actually try to impress the guest but they really have to deploy experienced servicemen. Morning breakfast was also the same and am not really impressed with the quality of food and service. Again you don't have any other option expect to use their restaurant. I would say that the hotel has a good location expect for the food service.

This resort tucked away in the corners of Kumarakom is exactly what the doctors order for stress and pressure. Nestled amidst backwaters of the famous god's own country, this place offers bliss in sequences.

The rooms are very comfortable and the staff very friendly. Most of the rooms afford a good view primarily of the swimming pool. The food is a traditional platter which is decent and nothing elaborate.

Other facilities in the resort are not worthy of a mention. But a person looking for a quiet weekend will not be left wanting more, unless you are looking for distinct luxury and pampering.

Been on 17/08/2011 night stay.

Best Location.

Good resort.

We were in Family suite.

Better to book Room, avoid Family suite (2 bedrooms).

Family suite is just a meter away from reception.

That's why they offer little less price for this suite.

Worst dinner buffet.

They prepare food for 10 peoples & try to serve it to 30 persons.

First ,Staff fills their own bowls for themselves then serve others.
