Stayed there for new year. Positive review : Best for family stay. Negative traits: Not all room face the lake. In web page shows all rooms to face lake view . Near to bird sanctuary, easy for boating

The view is the best thing about this place in case you get the lake view cottages. So insist on that. The rooms are very basic with thankfully an AC and a somewhat clean bathroom. Food taste is decent though maybe a bit spicy for some people. The other big problem is the lack of options in the menu card...

This homestay is clean , efficient and safe for all kinds of guests. I travelled as a single woman and was happy to spend four absolutely blissful days here. The lake front cottages are the best as they overlook the Vembanad lake and you can watch water birds, houseboats moving about, fishermen catching fish or just listen to the music...

Illikkalam Lakeside Resort was a great choice for our 8 days vacation. The lake front cottages provide a breathtaking view of the lake and sky, which keeps changing hues all day long.

Illikkalam is awesome place to be...friendly and eager to serve staff overcome language barrier easily. Would acknowledge Susan. Great food though you need to give advance notice. They will do good if alcohol is made available. Well connected to city by road. Houseboats available from jetty at reasonable price...rooms and washrooms are basic

We upgraded on arrival and spent two nights in a lakeside cottage which was lovely and we were told that we would have to change to the original room we booked for the last night as our room had been previously booked, our original room was just behind the lakeside cottages. However when we moved room we were told that...

We were very happy that we chose this location. We got lake side facing 2 adjacent rooms ideal for family of 4. Bang on the Kumarrakom lake. So if you are looking for basic clean rooms with very friendly and helpful staff this is the place. They arrange boat rides too else you could drive down to the boat jetty...

We came to this place because our original homestay isn't as expected. Accommodation is in bungalows by a lakeside and the seating is really nice. The rooms are basic but comfortable and the staff are pleasant and helpful. Food is also decent, freshly cooked and tasty
