“Spectacula place and the staff makes it more special and memorable”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

We just returned from a fabulous 4 day stay at Raviz Kollam.Right from our check in till we checked out everything was wonderful.
We also met the captain of the ship,Mr Gopi Mohan, GM of this property,he runs a great show and the staff is so friendly and eager to help,I don’t recall hearing a ‘NO’ for anything I requested .
From a lovely candle light dinner to evening cruise and great cocktails by the lush sit out areas ,everything was perfect .The check was smooth ,with a personalized letter and a list of activities we could chose from to keep ourselves busy .The rooms are comfortable and the view is spectacular from the glass window over looking the pool and lake .
The location is nice,very calm and serene and i will always have the memories of lovely sunsets over the lake close to my heart.
Anoop,Chitra ,Saumya at the reception,Dhananjay in the pool and the bartender (forgetting a few names) were very sweet and friendly .
We certainly wish to return to this property and refer it to all our friends .

Room Tip: All rooms are fabulous ,the view from the rooms in heritage wings is nice

We just concluded a 2 day dealer meet.The venue was apt for the team building and product launch for Bosch Power Tools division. The highlight of our event was the snake boat racewhich was organised superbly by the hotel itself with experienced boat racers and our teams.Kudos to Raviz Kollam and their excellent team for making our event a grand success.
Would like to thanks specially Mr.Aslam, Mr.Anoop, Mr.Ajin and Mr.Aneesh for their extended support and organising the whole show for us

Room Tip: Rooms on the heritage wings are superb

This is by far one of the best hotels in many terms. Primary reason being, it is highly personalized and very different from any chain of hotels which would have certain similarities. Located in a small town like Kollam, it is astonishing to see how carefully this hotel has been carved. It is by the backwaters and has its own sanctuary and a few animals. Besides this, it has a restaurant in a parked houseboat. The rooms are very traditional yet modern with an amazing view of the backwaters from most rooms. There is an aura of calmness around the hotel and you would definitely feel the bliss set inside you. Though I have stayed here during my business visits to the upcountry town, it definitely helps to stay in such a place to unwind and be completely charged up for the next day to come. The dinner buffets have a ide variety of food but be sure to try the Kerala delicacies in the buffet.

Room Tip: Be sure to take a room facing the back waters...

Stayed for 2 nights this week as a part of our annual business conference. Must say that this is one of the best ever places in India. The hotel is almost flawless and the staff are well trained, polite and smiling. The food is excellent and the infrastructure for conferences is great. The best thing is the location with the rooms overlooking the beautiful lake. Mosquitoes in the evening can be a bit annoying, but otherwise, the property deserves more than a five star rating. I hope that the management maintains these standards and with such hotels, the image of India and Kerala as a tourist destination can increase by leaps and bounds. Would definitely like to revisit this place again (and again).

We had arranged a business meet for the Top officials of SBI & SBI Life Ins in the month of January 2014. The whole arrangements done, food, rooms, service and staffs were excellent!! All our delegates were extremely satisfied with the services offered and specially the front desk and duty manager, who are extremely corteous and helpful. The property is very beautiful and is situated on the backwaters. The resort also conducts these houseboat rides on the backwaters which is an absolute joy. We had also availed the transportation services from the hotel and it was smoothly managed. We strongly recommend this resort which can be availed for both business meets as well as personal visits!! Thank u team Raviz for the pleasant experience.

My wife and I have just returned from a fantastic holiday in the beautiful state of Kerala. After touring for a week we enjoyed the most relaxing, calm and re energising 10 day stay at the. Raviz Hotel. The hotel entrance and atrium is magnificent with the fans and lots of wood giving it a very traditional feel.
From the moment you check in until you final departure you are looked after by staff who clearly enjoy the work that they do and who are totally dedicated to the well being of their guests ensuring that they want for nothing.
The rooms are spacious and immaculately looked after throughout the day. The pool area is an absolute joy and to be able to swim up to one side and overlook the lake or watch the Kites flying about, occasionally coming down to drink from the pool gave us a lot of pleasure. The food was all outstanding and what was particularly good was the time and trouble taken by the waiters to explain the different local Kerala dishes on offer, particularly helpful to us as this was our first trip to India.
We enjoyed complimentary boat trips on the lake and the SPA has to be experienced to be believed.
Our only regret is that it will be year before we can enjoy the peace, tranquility and indulgence of this great hotel again.
