I went to this place based on the reviews I read with my wife and kid. The place is very peaceful and quiet which I personally liked. Even though this is not exactly in kumarakom, I think it should be by far the best in and around kottayam. I would really like to thank each and every one of the hotel staff for their warmth and kindless. Here are few tips for people who may plan to go to this part of kerala and are considering this hotel
1) For booking contact Mr. Ajo from the resort. Check for the special offers that they have on the website and plan accordingly.
2) Do take the airport pickup and drop service directly from the hotel as the one from the airport (pre paid cabs) costs almost the same. Also once at the hotel check if you can get the lake side room, its really nice to just walk out from the room and directly get in the swimming pool and look at the lake from there.
3) As soon as you arrive, make sure that you meet with Mr.Abhilash and plan up the iteneray with him along with the transport provided. He will work out the best with the number of days available to you.
4) The boat cruise is AWESOME. it might be one of the best in terms of facilities. The staff on the boat are really nice and helpful, so do take a half day cruise
5)Ayurveda centers. The 2 Massages a day was haven on earth and twice a day Yoga was very helpfull also. If somebody like to take care of there health, thats the place to go.
6)The food available at the hotel is the best available around the hotel. Try to check if there are any lunch plus dinner offer and you might take that. Try the tandoori karimeen (pearlspot)
To summarize, my stay was really pleasant, the only thing I missed was RAINS. It must be awesome when it rains in these places :)
