Spent four days here recently. The hotel sounds very romantic - a palace on an island.....it's not. It's old, dated and tired. the rooms are old, damp, smell of damp. I did not have one hot shower the entire time we were there. There is a spa on site and they ring your room every hour to see if you want a massage. food not great. service not great.
at the end of the day, this is india, so manage your expectations. we had fun because we were in the right mindset, but if you go expecting an amazing place, you'll be disappointed for sure.
