I was at Raviz for 2 days with my wife and kid. Really liked the behavior of the staff, good service, quality of food, excellent ambiance, the cleanliness of the surrounding, parking with good service for the drivers as well. My kid really enjoyed the stay at Raviz as they provided some bumbing slides, kids buffet etc. The Spa and the saloon was also excellent. The view from the tallest point of the resort is amazing. The beauty of kerala can be experienced in Raviz. A must say property. I would stay there when ever I go to Kollam.

Room Tip: Choose a room with the river side view. You will enjoy

If you are in kerala , all that you dream of is here. not to many would have heard of Kollam as destination as the kerala tourism hasnt highlighted it that well, but the place is worth a look.Much better than thekkady or cochin.So if you have a choice to make between kollam n this places go ahead blindly with kollam.It has a beach and asthamudi lake floating around.
Raviz is the only 5* in kollam, and lives upto the reputation. Right on the banks of ashtamudi lake, raviz offers you a fab view.
Good food, beatiful rooms, great location, decent service & a sure shot recommendation.

Room Tip: Make sure you are booking a room which is facing the lake, otherwise you are missing on allot.

I'd give Raviz a rating of 3.5 if I could. On the plus side, it has a great location - right by the lake, rooms are quite lovely (especially those with a lake view), food is good and there's a beautiful infinity pool but it's completely let down by its service. We stayed here over a weekend earlier this year and sometimes it felt that the staff had no idea how to run a hotel - phones at reception were often unanswered, requests for simple things were never fulfilled - it got quite frustrating eventually. This is the first time I've had this experience while travelling in Kerala - usually service levels are well above average. It's a really lovely hotel, but if you're planning a stay here - do temper your expectations on the service.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view of the lake

Was @ Raviz for TATA AIA LIFE Annual Party. As an Organizer of the event, what attracted me the most to Raviz was it Serene Atmosphere, which gave the event a additional advantage of a break from Hustle and Bustle of our daily routine and helped us recharge. A marvelous setting with every amenities that you can think of... a Real Beautiful Place... The service was top class from a very caring and efficient team. We really enjoyed the stay... It’s a must visit place in Kerala... We had a total of 130 participants coming in and all the guests were received with utmost care and the checking process for all the 130 participants happened in a smooth manner with very minimum waiting time. It goes on to show the efficiency of the Front office team lead by Mr. Deepak Kannan. In fact Mr. Deepak played a vital role in total coordination of the event, which is worth the mention. I strongly recommend Raviz not only for a Vacation but also as an ideal location to have conferences and meetings for large gathering.

Room Tip: Lake Side Facing Room... its Absolute Delight.. Esp the Mornings...

We were totally disappointed with the entrance and reception received on entering the Hotel....

Even after all the Presidential and Super star hype this place has not gone beyond its natural beautiful surroundings. ..which is a very natural thing in GOD'S OWN COUNTRY. ..

Service is below average....staff not well trained. ..the word hospitality is very rare...the warmth of the south was missing in the premises. ...staff was more pre occupied with some marriage happening in the premises of someone big and rich it seems...


They should not take booked travellers for granted...

Except for the beautiful surroundings. ..the hotel and its staff is a big let-down....

Right from receiving us at the airport the chauffeur had made us feel special and once we entered the hotel the staff received us with a cold towel, garland and fruit juice. after i sat down the manager had handed asked me that he can take me to my room any time i wish. the hotel had upgraded us to a private villa on request and as we came to know that that particular week was off season for the hotel and very few guests present at that time. from that moment we were made to think that we were the sole guests on the property. we had a complimentary boat ride in the evening and great candle light dinner arranged to us by the chef. next day we had session at the spa and went out for light house and local beach visit which was arranged by the hotel. we had a plunge pool at our villa. next morning hotel has surprised us with a cake in our room as we had already mentioned before booking that it was our anniversary. we went for fishing and had caught fish which the chef had cooked for us. we enjoyed the time very much as the staff were very attentive and courteous and in no time took care of our requests. we were made to feel special while returning from the hotel as they had given us flowers we had requested the previous day. we did not feel like leaving the hotel and really wanted to extend the stay

Room Tip: go for a higher floor or chose private villa
