I don't understand how came some people get such awesome experiences. Because i went to this place after reading reviews from TripAdvisor but i will never recommend this place to any one. Back water is just a gimmick. It is fill of Pistia stratiotes which makes the look pathetic. Starting from Rooms, they were nice and tidy. I liked it...

Good location, Good property, good food, good people. Rooms are very clean and tidy. Don't miss near by island boat tour. And also the sunrise. They need to have more kerala cousins in their food. Recreation room needs to be better maintained.

overall experience was disappointing.The bed was very noisy and screechy with every movement.We could not sleep entire night. The edges and sides of the bed were protruding out and both of us about to fall twice due to obstruction.it is not senior citizen friendly. Breakfast, however was satisfactory and staff hospitable.

Extremely dissapointing location. There is just nothing to do in an around the hotel premisese. Forced to have food in the Restuarant. The Web site is a marketing gimmick. Too many mosquitos or insects when you sit outside.

I have only good things to say about this resort: Peaceful and a calm stay. A best place for relaxation with family. As a surprise they have provided me a lake facing room. I liked this very much. All the staff were very co-operative. Appreciate the F&B manager Mr.Thomas for the tasty food and service.
