It takes about 2 hours to reach the resort from cochin airport. The last part of the journey is a 5-minute boat ride along a canal to reach the resort itself from the gate to the hotel. The lobby and reception have a classy and artistic feel. The check-in was smooth, the staff polite and warm. The room was comfortable, clean, and modern. Soft bed and pillows. View of the Vembanad lake from the room was fabulous. The grounds and the whole resort was very green and beautiful. It was very relaxing for me throughout the stay. Food was ok, but not extra-ordinary. However, the good thing was that they make an attempt to ask you what you would prefer for your meal and then prepare it. They can arrange cabs and houseboats, and motor boats to cruise the backwaters around. You can also make a short trip to Kottayam and shop around. The resort is a little isolated but safe and hotel was quiet the first day and busy the next. The bird sanctuary is close by but you need to visit in the morning and preferably when the migratory birds arrive in March and December.
