We stayed at the Vila for a night and must say that this is really a hidden gem. The views from the villa was fantastic, we spent an evening having tea and hot snacks by the back waters. The pool is also very nice . hopefully during the peak season, the staff could organize a break fast buffet...we plan to come back and stay Longer. I would recommend this Resort for those on the look out for Hidden Gems !!!

We were sceptical at first since we got a deal via Groupon for this resort which we haven't heard about before but it turned out to be one of our finest stays ever. Our entire stay was very nice, the hospitality has been very good,, the service was rendered by the hotel employees going out of their way... Overall I suggest this place for a good weekend gateway..

Room Tip: All rooms are good. It depends on the view you chose..

The reviews are so true and this place is just awesome. Nice location, good food.. The service was just superb and prompt.
I should say this is the one of the resort that I have visited where I did not see a staff with whining face. :)
We enjoyed our stay and we definitely recommend to others..

The food is slightly overpriced.. I feel Rs.100 for a cup of tea is expensive..

Myself and my sister stayed at this beautiful resort at the end of April. We found this magical place on living social.com , we got a great deal which including various tours to the elephant shelter, local beachs and temples.
We were picked up from the airport with a complimentary airport transfer and greeted at the resort with fresh pineapple juice ! Before been shown to our room by our lovely guide Achena ( i apologise if i got the name wrong) Achena and all the staff at the resort went out of there way to ensure that our stay was the best it could possibly be ! She also took myself and my sister to the local town and helped us find a sari to buy, which she later came to our room and helped us to wear them! Each time we had a wonderful driver that would take us around and wait patiently whilst we shopped!

The restaurant staff were just as friendly, and willing to have a laugh and joke , although at times we felt a little rushed to eat as it was offf peak time and there were many waiters waiting to take plates and bring out food. The kitchen staff were very open to altering the menu to our tastes and being quite a fussy eater i managed to find something i liked!

The pool is set in a nice quiet area and we took advantage of milkshakes being bought to us by the pool , as i say we felt like we were royalty the week of our stay!i did not want to leave!

Our room was well presented with a large bathroom and balcony over looking the lake, but most of our time was spent by the pool or lazing in the hammocks!

We also took advantage of the spa and both had a foot massage which almost sent me to sleep so later on we decided to book in for a full body massage! That was an experience, personally i preferred the foot massage as i dont like oil on my face but the doctor and the massage therapists were really sensitive of your needs making sure that you always felt comfortable

On our departure day we had to leave very early for our airport transfer and the kitchen were able to organise some fresh fruits for us for our breakfast before leaving!

Overall this was a truly amazing week one that i will never forget!
Thankyou to all the staff for making this a memorable trip!

Stayed in this resort for two nights with family.Safe for a family stay.It is a little difficult to locate the resort as it is away from the crowd.Better ask the reception for clear guidance regarding the location.The accommodation was very cute.I stayed in the river view cottage.The resort provided us complimentary boat cruise in a house boat really we enjoyed it for an hour.Do not miss this it is very safe.
The quality of the food served does not match the price.Hope they will improve it.The room service was in time.The staff are very courteous especially Mr.Prasanth and Mr.Sreejith.The natural beauty in and around the resort is a haven for amateur photographers.So do not forget to take a professional camera with you.

Room Tip: Prefer the river view cottages you will really enjoy it.

Recently stayed at Fragrant Nature Resort some 15 kms from Kollam with family for 2 nights..Landed at 6.00 am in the morning,being off season they gave us complimentary early check in and.upgrade to their Exclusive Premium Lakeside Room.Stunning resort with a beautiful view of tthelake.All the reviews praising this resort are absolutely true.Clean Rooms,Great Service and decent food.Ensure that your meals are included in the package as there are no eating places nearby and Al La Carte at the resort can be expensive.A trip to Munroe Island and Varkala Beach is a must.The resort organises vehicles to these places at a very reasonable cost.

Highly recommended for those looking for a 4 star family resort for peace,relaxation and spending quality time with family.Book directly with the resort for Best rate.

Room Tip: Go for the Exclusive Premium Lakeside Rooms,they are better than the more expensive Villas.
