Hotel's Favourite
If I were to have an option I would rate Cranganor 10 out of 5 . Its that good . We recently stayed at this gorgeous property for 2 nights and what can I say? There are two aspects to this beautiul place about which I will be talking .. One - the staff and Two - the property Let me begin with the staff .Starting from the time of arrival to the time of departure , the staff takes such good care of you and pampers you without being intrusive that you don't feel like leaving the place. Initially we had booked a pool side villa just so we could keep an eye on our two kids right from the verandah of the villa . Unfortunately the pool was supposed to be cleaned on the first day and was unusable . But to our pleasant surprise , we were upgraded to a villa with a bathtub just so my daughter would not get disappointed .The next day of course we were able to use the beautiful pool. The standard now on and now off smile on the face that we so often encounter in the regular 5 star hotels staff in the cities is replaced with a genuine broad smile on the Cranganor staff's face that warms your heart. I would like to especially mention Justin , Aashik and Sofia and two kitchen and housekeeping staff whose names I do not know , who took care of every small need , like when we wanted to purchase some local spices (it was procured for us ) or when we wanted to visit a local handmade soap factory ( it was arranged ). As to the beauty of the place I think photographs will not do justice to it .One has to visit the place to experience it . The broad river with flowing water and the fishermen going about on their boats , the various birds , the trees in the property , the lush lawn , one can go on and on . The villas also have been constructed in such a way that they are all interconnected to each other by a redoxide flooring broad strip which leads from the reception area .There are just 7 villas . 5 on the ground floor and 2 on the first floor and all of them face the river. Our kids never wanted to leave the resort during the entire stay which was a big surprise for us as we have never seen them to be interested in resorts like this. For us that spoke volumes about this laid back small beautiful resort with big hearted staff. Looking forward to our next trip .

One of the best place ever i have stayed with my family. The way they treat you rght from the day one to end of your tour will mesmerize you and it was a great experience for us along with our kid. Food and the cleanliness of the property is extremly good and i recommend this for every sort of group to relax and chill to step out of current hectic life culture. Thanks to entire team of Cranganor for making our trip so memorable and we flet like stepping in to our onw home a different location.

Fresh from a hectic wedding, we were looking for a beautiful quiet getaway in Kerala and Cranganor offered us exactly that. From lush green cover to the calming backwaters to the delectable food and lovely staff, we loved it all. Best seafood meal we have had in years! Definitely would recommended! Pictures don’t do justice to the beauty of this place.

Good property. Nice rooms (Total of 7 rooms out of which 2 are upstairs and 5 at ground level) with most having good view of the river. Good food and friendly staff. Kids enjoyed the swimming pool (with kids pool) a lot and one good thing is that the pool is not too deep. One suggestion: you could keep a few swim rings for the kids which they would love a lot. Overall good experience. Thank you

Cranganor History Cafe & Riverside Chateau gave us a beautiful experience. Stay was comfortable and hospitality was 10/10. The best part was the food. Yummy yummy yummy. A must visit place. We also had a boating experience which was cool one, but just one thing we found was the lack of safety measures and a mistake from our part too that we did not ask for it. So guest going for boating pls do take safety precautions, ask for ur safety jackets n enjoy ur boating. All together we had a wonderful experience in "Cranganor". People who are willing for a chilling weekend and a peaceful stay go fr Cranganor and try their yuummmiieestttt fooood. Thank you team Cranganor.

Cranganor is a beautiful resort by the Periyar river. It has only few rooms, so guests are treated with a lot of personal care. The food is delicious and the hospitality is also really good. All rooms have river-view and beautiful balconies to relax. Definitely a place to spend a memorable weekend!
