Been there couple of times and stayed in lovely cottages. The trip from airport to the hotel is bit hectic and are bad roads, but once you reach the destination, you will have a warm welcome by the courteous staff offering you tender coconut or fresh juice. Beautiful natural lake, in the evening the entire lake, the lawn and restaurant...

Been there for a casual couple trip. This resort has an awesome campus with individual row house kind of rooms, which are constructed in typical kerelian architecture. Unique features like open air shower, backyard lake, etc. gives an extra edge for the resort. Highly recommended.

Kind of disappointed with administrative staff. Service staff was excellent. Money charged was not commiserate with the services rendered. There is nothing to do around the hotel and the hotel offered NOTHING. You had to fend for yourself. Concierge was pathetic.

We stayed at the Premium Temptation Villa with Private Pool at Taj Kumarakom for 3 nights. The customer service was exceptional as we had our 6 month old baby with us, and the front office manager, Noel, offered to serve all meals in-room including the breakfast. He was also very quick in getting us a medicine from a medicine shop...

This is a heritage property with very friendly and amenable staff - willing to do all to make our stay relaxing and comfortable. The Activity area was a boon - to keep children busy without screen time. Bicycles are a great idea. The buffet service and range was very good - and the live station well stocked.
