I can't imagine staying anywhere else other than river retreat. Praveen and his team make us feel so welcome and the service is certainly the best. Nothing is too much trouble, you never have to wait long for anything you order and they remember what you last had! The ambience is great, you will always meet good interesting people here and be made to feel very welcome. I can see why people come back every year and its so assuring to see the same faces year on year! the music selection in the restaurant also excellent,The rooms are clean...We will definately recommend this place to everybody. Thanks for the hospitality.

The resort is beautifully landscaped, with lush gardens at the banks of Bharathapuzha.
We were happy to see that the river was almost full because of the heavy rain fall for past few days. it had greenary allover which makes it an ideal atmosphere for relaxation. The food is excellent, with attentive restaurant staff who are always smiling.

All staff members at the resort were very helpful right from the bell boy whom we met upon arrival. The only worry was that because of the tight schedule, we could not try their Ayurvedic Massage, which they are masters in. Love to come back with family to spend few days for rejuvenation.

Highly recommend this property

Room Tip: near to the loan area... with the view of lake.... area with more privacy...

The retreat was not only neat & clean but the staff were also very very polite.
The service rendered was also of excellent quality, especially the food served.
Plenty of indoor/outdoor games for kids and the air around is also clean.
Got a real wonderful package for a group of 20 persons from Mr.Siju Pulieyoor, the Operations manager.
Overall, a very good experience for family members.
The games area can be spruced-up a bit more.

Room Tip: You can customise your menu as per your group needs.

Rverretreat was an excellent experience. The picturesque resort, right by the river. Hardly 5 minutes drive to the Kerala Kalamandalam, the location is calm and serene. Right place for families, with big lawns, river facing and silent and safe locality. The food served was excellent and tasty. Quality of Staff and Management will bring you back to this resort. Thanks for the entire team of River Retreat who made our stay wonderful

We wanted to stay away from the crowds. The River Retreat, Just 70 kms away from my home was a choice for us when we were on vacation last time. We enjoyed our stay very much and we were surprised about the absolute cleanliness in this place. We relaxed in a beautiful room overlooking river nila. The whole resort is designed well. The restaurant offered very good food with very good service. The Ayurveda treatments were perfect and very professional. We will highly recommend this resort to our friends and would like to come back again for sure! River Retreat is a beautifully laid out resort, with well designed space,lovely swimming pool children play area etc. The rooms are large and well appointed. Ideally located just miles way from Kerala Kalamandalam the famous institute of performing arts. The staff were all very warm, friendly, helpful and efficient.
