We spent two weeks in this idyllic setting next to the lake. Two spacious bedrooms were ideal for us to spread out and the covered veranda wsa perfect for watching the changing light, birdlife and general goings on of local life. We had an amazing cook called Vasantha who provided us with breakfast, lunch and dinner plus mid morning snack...

If you are looking for a little bit of down time to just do nothing, read a book, stare up into the mountainous jungle or gaze across the reservoir then this is the place for you. We arrived after a 6 hour drive just after dark and were welcomed by Anna; a lovely lady who lives close by that would...

We visited the Aquarius cottage during this monsoon as a part of our family get away to Kerala. I will have to say that this trip was one of the best experience we ever had. Located in the midst of a very scenic place and on the side of a lake, the place was very much suited for us as...

We had a wonderful stay at Aquarius Cottage. This is the perfect place to enjoy monsoons. The view of the lake is incredible and the house is beautiful, clean and spacious. The cook Anna did a great job. The food she made was delicious. The caretaker was helpful in providing all necessary amenities and housekeeping. Highly recommended if you wish...

Appearing nice on the outside in a lovely setting, this deceptive place is owned by doctor James who started off thru email contact very polite. Then after staying one night we saw how dirty and poorly maintained the room was and realised we were paying too much for this poor standard, so after discussing with dr James, after much conversation...

We were unfortunate to host a dubious man called Nicolas McLean - from South Africa, who arranged a taxi for next day 10 AM with us and tried to sneak out - without settling the bill - on previous night in a secretly arranged car. The rest is anybody's guess. (His total bill was15,500/- INR - including accommodation, food and...

We read about Kakkayam while searching for places in Kerala that are low profile. And then we stumbled upon two write ups by foreign tourists and then decided that we should visit Aquarius Cottage. At first sight there is no view that is so spectacular, despite the pouring rain when we were there. The cottage is homely, though it could...

Stayed for a week. Didn't want to leave. That simple. Really quiet chilled out place in a magical setting. Didn't lift a finger as the cottage came with a cook- absolutely lovely woman- who prepared three huge meals a day and all the masala tea we could chug down. Very good deal! Not for those whose night life is more...

When you wake up in the morning, the tranquil stretches of emerald water frontage, the luxuriant acacia greens and flocks of cormorants fishing will rejuvenate you.
