It was the most wonderful place that we have ever stayed in our travela. The staff were excellant, the food was fantastic, had all kinds of facilities, the infinity pool was just fabulus!!! It was a five star resort all around. We will go there any time if we ever get a chance to go again.

Stayed at KLR in July 2014 for two nights and must mention that this would by far qualify to be one of the best resort properties that we have stayed at.

We visited Kumarakom Lake Resort in July 2009 and stayed at the Heritage Villa with private pool. It was perfect for two adults and two children aged 8 and 6 years. The service was impeccable. We loved the traditional food served in five-star surroundings.
