Interesting place. government resort? mainly for Indian people on holiday. Chalet excellent. Good views. Good restaurant. Not close to outside shops. I would hesitate before bringing children here because of all the canals. Pool okay, no access for the elderly or disabled. A maze Chalets and I found it difficult to remember the direction of mine .

Tree Hoses spread across the property is an added attraction to visit.Normal accommodation is also available. The Restaurant is housed above the water and the panoramic view of Vembanad Lake will remain with you for rest of life

Overall its nice place with good landscaping which is very near (walking distance) to bird sanctuary. They have two types of rooms - canal view and lake view.

The Place met the expectation which was set when viewed on pics. Hard to believe it was a government property and it was such well-maintained. The smiling staffs made our stay more pleasant. We checked in early and checked out late. The Resort Staff was fine with that. The food price was on higher side, but understandably as more Foreigners...

Visited this place. Stayed here for three days. Good food and comfortable stay. Nice view of sunset from swimming pool in the evening.staff helpful. Wifi facility available but only 100mb allowed which is not fare. Phone network also not good. I visited ktdc munnar too there was no restrictions on wifi usage. Why 2 properties of ktdc has different policy.
