This was a quiet location, however a little disappointing for more than one night. All meals were set affairs and often started later than the advertised time. There was a feeling that the hotel was understaffed and running down... bar not opened, front desk staff occasionally rude.... feels like it needed a bit of a boost to lift it to...

Good place for a 3 star to stay if one gets a good rate. If a good rate is not recieved, would instead highly reccomended staying instead at the privately owned Taj just up the road or the other resort also by the body of water nearby of which I don't know the name. Pros - Beautiful & stunning location...

The resort location is super and scenic, but lack of maintenance. Breakfast is good. It is next to Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary and you can go for bird watching at early morning. All the cottages are independent and photogenic, but the path ways ad stairs made of irons are rested.

This is a government owned resort and is right next to the bird sanctuary so its very relaxing to hear all the chirping of different birds. The views of the lake are amazing but you can smell the stagnant waters of the canal as you walk through. The food was good, we had a buffet dinner and it had a...

Just 3 points I have in my mind : 1. Excellent location. 2. Cottage house provides comfy stay. 3. Nearby bird sanctuary is a must visit. Apart from these, only important drawback is that they don't have a options for food. You have to go for buffet or need to choose only from those buffet options. Else, we have enjoyed...

The hotel is good and located inside the bird sanctuary. Most of the places to see in Kumarakom is either inside the hotel or walking from the place. The hotel is right next to pricy property such as Taj and coco bay and share the same view at much cheaper cost. The food options for vegetarians are not much around...

Waterscapes was just what we expected - a lovely retreat with water all round the little cabins on stilts. Probably not that suitable for young children as you'd have to keep a constant eye on them but overall good, clean and friendly. Not a wide variety at breakfast but it did the job nicely.
