Hotel is at great location and the rooms are very clean and spacious. Hotel staff is not so good and it's hard to communicate with then in hindi/english. Food is pathetic here, you will have to go in village for good food. Swimming pool and other amenities are great to enjoy.

Location of this property is good. It is situated on he river. You can start boating right from the lawn of the hotel. The view is excellent. Rooms are spacious. They have arrangements for different games and work out. However, we had to ask for the towels and pillows. The Toilet fittings could be better. The worst thing about this...

Booked 3 rooms and stayed for 4 days. The resort is in an excellent location. View of boats coming and going in the lake, sunrise, sunset is awesome. Swimming pool is well maintained. They were able to arrange transport as early as 4.30 AM. Food and service were also good. No wifi though... Enjoyed the stay.

We have stayed in three lakeside facing rooms along with family members in March 2015. Rooms are big and spacious. The resort has one of the fantastic views. Swimming pool is well maintained. The sunrise and sunset views are great. We captured both the views on our camera. You can watch shikara boats going to and fro from the lake...

Decent sized room with river view. Clean and spacious. Somewhat away from the town, so getting there requires asking for directions. Staff was able to arrange airport transport at 5 a.m., which impressed me. They even packed a breakfast at that hour. They arranged a lovely boat tour in the evening on the Vembanad lake which was super. No internet...

The property is good, but not maintained. Why to avoid? 1) Rooms - Untidy, with dust on the bed. I requested the service staff to replace the glasses; they were never replaced. We had to request for towel, napkin, etc. not once; again and again. Only after we reminded after dinner, they came. 2) Location - Nothing to die for....

If only they served alcohol and had some loungers around the pool, this hotel would be the perfect retreat. Perfect for people who like to photograph boats as if you get a river-view room (and you should) then a different one passes your balcony every 5 minutes. Oh, and watch out for the 'duck herders' in their canoes too! Lovely...

We, 5 families visited on 15.1.2015. Location is good. Swimming pool is good. There is no room service available due to shortage of manpower. But more horrible thing is supply of food, don't expect food (buffer B/F and dinner). They will prepare only for half of the person and will try to adjust with that. The reason is catering person...
