You will first find a secure parking lot with a rest room and 24 hour security .Leave your car here.As soon as we arrived, the security called up the hotel and they sent a boat for...

Our stay at Soma Kerala Palace has been very memorable. From the time we landed from our short boat trip to the next 6 days it has been a remarkable vacation. Far removed from the madding crowd, Soma Palace staff made us feel special. Jeeth Chandran, the Property Manager and his staff catered to our every need and we felt...

We were booked into this hotel by our travel agent. We were planning to take a backwater trip and had read that Komarakom is a good place to organise a trip from. BUT this place is 35kms from Komarakom and is on it's own private island so you are stuck there. Furthermore they don't offer backwater trips - they did...

Loved the look of this hotel, it is on an island and you have to get there by the hotel's boat. We spent most of our time relaxing and hanging out in the hammocks all over the island and enjoyed the Ayurvedic center. I was traveling with 4 other women and we all enjoyed different messages, facials, and steams at...

Nice place to relax. breath taking view from all the rooms. this property is located in an island made by backwaters. Reaching this place itself will be a nice journey. Around 15 minutes boat journey to reach the hotel. Food is awesome. only minus point about the hotel is the rooms are small and dark. Compare with the location and...

All 3 categories of room - maharaja, Yuvaraj and palace rooms are similar. Location is beautiful but rooms are ok. As it is an island we we were taken there by boat that was a great experience. Food is delicious. Staff taught us fishing. Spent great time catching fish. Being an Ayurveda centre it offers great message at nominal price...

In an attempt to retain tradition and its ambience this hotel fails in most aspects especially if you are afraid of cockroaches, lizards and rats. Not that it is bad but how can one enjoy a holiday when you are always concerned about lizards crawling around. One good thing was the option to put in a hand made fishing line...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
What makes Soma Kerala Palace different from other holiday resorts is its ancient architecture which is recreated using master pieces, about 250 years old, disbanded from their actual site. Classical art forms such as Koodiyattom, Thulall and Padayani, performed by veterans of the art, form a part of the Kalaa Sandhya (Cultural Evening) which was once a means of entertainment for the royalty. ... more   less
