A nice place to stay and relax. The services were excellent. The boat trip arranged by the hotel, in the Vembanad lake was a great thing to do. There are some real nice Indian cuisines available in the OPEN restaurant.

At nights it gives and amazing feel seeing the tree tops lit and the reflections in the lagoon. The food provided at the resort...

On the banks of the Vembanad river, with a pretty little man-made lagoon inside the hotel property, this is a Taj hotel that's great value for money. The rooms are great, the views beautiful and peaceful, the silence broken only by the chirping of birds. We stayed here for 3 nights, and had an excellent time. The service staff are...

The location of the resort was fantastic. The staff at the resort was very friendly and cooperative throughout the stay. The seafood variety offered was very tasty and something to go back to. Serene atmosphere and waking up by chirping of birds, what more you would want.
