A nice place to relax in the back water ambiance. Plenty of space to roam around. The rooms are spacious and bath rooms are well maintained. Privacy is little bit compromised. The food and services are little expensive. If you are ready for a walk, you can enjoy traditional food and delicacies at local hotels which are damn cheap. While...

We had spent our honeymoon night here. The food is amongst the best in the vicinity with especially the breakfast spread. Rooms are also done well with ample space. Not sure if there is sufficient activity to keep one occupied beyond 3 days here.

During my first Kerala trip, spent two relaxing days at this resort. While searching for it the first night, felt it to be in a secluded place. But once you enter the property, it is nautural beauty in full bloom. Tastefully decorated reception, well maintained gardens, beautiful backwater shore. What more do you want ? Service non obtrusive but efficient.

I fought a long time deciding between average and very good for this resort. In brief, I loved staying at this resort. Why? Because I'm the person who goes to a different country to meet it's people and live their experiences. That is what I found in this hotel, beautiful views, decent amenities, and the most courteous and eager to...
