Awesome location. They take you in boat to resort. Rooms are beautiful. The place out of town peaceful romantic, more to get to know each other. Perfect for honeymoon. I wanted to extend my stay but couldn't. Good ayurveda masaage seasion. Food is also good.

We had stayed here for 3 nights. I must say this is a peaceful experience which ensures you are so close to nature. This resort also ensures maximum luxury for the amount which we pay. Staff is really good in terms of courtesy and behaviour.

Well, mix feeling about the property. Though the property is based in interior (well before Alleppey) which gives you the full feeling of backwater, the property itself is so so. Food is not good, we had breakfast 2 days which was exactly same with very very limited option. Dinner was horrible in taste. If you just want to stay in... More

Quite a late review (we visited in Sep 2015) but better late than never. Complaints of this being interior are just absurd. Its about 15 mins from the NH which is quite alright for a backwater resort and the taxi service was part of the peacock package that I had availed. We visited Fort Kochi, Lulu mall and had a...

We stayed at the resort on 20th & 21st October. The location is very good(except that it is a little in the interior) ambience is very nice, the staff is very cordial and warm. They made us feel very comfortable. All in all a very good hospitality experience. 👍👍👍

Small things make good places great. And this place falls short on pretty much all those small things. While the location and boat ride to the beach are stunning, that's pretty much all the good stuff for this place. Quite frankly, I could have stayed in a houseboat for the same price of this hotel and that would have probably... More

Visited this resort in October 2016 for just one night. Need to take a short boat ride to reach this resort but there is no car parking. You can reach Cochin Airport in about 90 minutes.
