Very nice resort with luxurious services and natural view. This place is far better than kovalam and presents superb natural scenery. Food was really good and buffet services available for breakfast, lunch and dinner which is really helpful to taste the delicacies before eating it

A friend and I stayed at the hotel a couple of weeks ago and had the most relaxing holiday we've ever had.
The scenery is incredible and the Estuary Resort is well kept and clean with very friendly staff.
We really enjoyed the food and the Spa treats were divine.
The staff were very helpful when asking about where to go and what to do and were alway accommodating. Kiran and Abraham were friendly and lovely for the whole stay as were all of the other staff.
The pool area was nice - sometimes there were a few groups of business trips hanging around which at times could be a bit off putting but it was generally relaxing.
Our room was clean and modern and big.
Will definitely be returning to this beautiful place.

Room Tip: The sea view was amazing.

i visited Estuary Island in december last year(2013) for my honeymoon and it could not have beenany better. The resort is located near the Golden Sand beach to which the hotel provides free boat ride once a day. The Sunset /Sunrise here is really good. The restaurant served some really good food and contrary toour intial thoughts there was plenty of vegetarian options.
The staff in the hotel was really friendly and helped us arrange sight seeing tours. I would recommend taking the back water ride.

Room Tip: Room on higher floor with ocean view are much better

As mentioned by another traveller, this is indeed a wonderfully located resort. The approach road to the resort is a bit seedy but once you enter the resort the whole ambiance changes to an upmarket one. The battery operated rickshaws come to fetch the luggage and the short walk to the reception with a wonderful view of the verdant backwaters while one waits to be checked in. The hotel tries to bring on the high end experience but the service quality at check certainly left a lot to be desired. The reception staff who ushered me in - a young man - insisted on letting me know the rates of the wifi rather that the procedure - till I had to ask him to cool off about rates!! The buffet (both dinner and breakfast) was sumptuous - the chef Sajan was happy to speak and share notes with me a foodie - on the whole a nice experience. The rooms and amenities were up to the mark. With some more attention to staff training this place can be a place for an outstanding experience.

Room Tip: try cottages that face the backwaters - a bit more expensive but worth it!
