“Incredible!! Absolutely spoiled here!”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

I'm sure if the staff could carry you through the door, they would. Incredibly friendly and helpful staff in a beautiful hotel. The room was spacious, fantastic bed, very clean - and with a great view of the lake. There's a free yoga class in the morning, a boat tour of the lake, afternoon coffee/tea and biscuits and lots of activities for kids that are all included. They even have a small spa room with a hot tub and sauna that you can have to yourself for an hour.
The food, albeit a bit expensive, was fabulous! My husband and I really can't say enough about this place.

Myself and my six other friends went to "The Raviz" on 19th April along with spouse and kids.we stayed there for 1 day The hotel gave us a memorable experience in all respect

Food- 100/100
Accomodation 100/100
Staff-100/100


I would like to mention about the postive attitude of even the normal staff like security, attender etc. They were trained to take the customer feel the real meaning of "Adithi Devo Bhava".

KUDOS to Team RAVIZ.

Room Tip: all rooms looks nice...better get accomodation in 2nd floor

I have to stay one thing, boss it's Awesome.
The arrangement was for my First Night, some how the staff knew bout our Marriage, they decorated the Room with utmost care.
The entire process of giving the beautiful Experience started from the Entrance, man that was superb.
We were welcomed by their staff, as if they all were waiting for us, that was really impressive. We were greeted by Ms Aparna, she took care of every thing for us in the most comfortable way. Every thing was planned by the Staff @ Raviz, for making the Night even more memorable. The Flowers and its Arrangement, the Decoration and the CAKE( that was a killer).

The Property is Simply Awesome, magnificent structures, no wonder Her Excellency Madam Prathiba Patil(former President of India), stayed in here.

The food is really good, they have very good restaurant, Heard their Boat restaurant is place that should not be missed.

I can never forget this experience, cause it has given me one of the best memory that I can reckon.

What an excellent place to stay!
We, a family with two children, stayed for two days at The Raviz.
By entering the lobby, we were exited. The hotel and its interior is extremely tasteful. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The dinner (buffet) at the restaurant was delicious. The hotel is close to the Backwaters, so you have a lovely view from the room window. We all loved that hotel so much!

We recently stayed at The Raviz for the second week of our holiday in India. We found the location and views to be wonderful, and the room allocated to us to be of an excellent standard.The staff at the hotel were extermely friendly as well as consumate proffessionals, they tended to our every need at a moments notice, and always with a smile. we would also comment that the food in the hotel was great, with a good variance between a la carte and buffets as the week progressed. The management throughout the hotel were always visible, and it was very encouraging to see that the high standard of cleaning was being closely monitored on a daily basis. If I had one criticism of our stay at the Raviz, it would be that we could not stay longer. A most pleasurable experience which exceeded our expectations.

I went to this Hotel on my honeymoon in Peak Season of January 2013. My reception at the hotel began with the traditional Kerala Instrumental Music with excellent Hotel Staff with a pleasant smile and very very helpful attitude.
I just walked in to the reception. The staff politely said they will take care of my luggage. The Hotel Reception Staff was very very good. They greeted us very well and let us enjoy the calm and pleasant day cracking a few mild jokes whenever we met. They offered us a complimentary upgrade to the Premium Category and offered us a compliementary Lunch & Dinner as well. Plus a 30-minute evening ride in houseboat. And a Surprise Chocolate Cake !!
This was the best place in our Kerala Honeymoon Trip.

We have just got back from an amazing 10 days at The Raviz.
The Hotel and setting on the lake are beautiful.
The staff cannot do enough for you and all are very pleasant and helpful. The restaurant staff and managers are fantastic and deserve special praise - It would be unfair to mention anyone in particular as they were all attentive and the service was superb, well done to all.I am fussy eater and therefore I was delighted that the food was exceptional, all the dishes were delicious and well presented, thanks to the chef for the cuisine.
Our room was kept spotless and the sheets and towels changed regularly.
Niggles - the fact that the Zircon bar was closed the whole time we were there, it would have been nice to get a drink somewhere other than the reception area. Also we had to ask for drinks around the pool, but these are small complaints. Would we stay again? YES Definitely!!!
