“A great backwater experienceLake Village Resort at Kottayam was the real highli”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2009

Lake Village Resort at Kottayam was the real highlight of my Kerala trip. I stayed with my wife and eight year old daughter in their traditional Kerala style cottage in the backwaters of the Vembanad Lake. Though it is said to be a three star hotel, I found it equivalent to staying in any five-star resort at Kumarakom backwaters at half the price! Our duplex cottage was all wood, with the rustic wooden steps taking you to the bedroom on the first floor with a spectacular view of the backwaters. One complete wall was made of big windows for an uninterrupted view. The ground floor had a small seating and dining with an open-air bathroom and a private balcony overlooking the lake. Seemed like a dream house! Since it was early March, the weather hadn’t turned so much humid and hot; in fact we had lovely breezy mornings and evenings. The cottages were all interspersed with beautifully landscaped gardens with a multitude of plants and trees. My wife was most appreciative of their Ayurveda centre and she did get a couple of massages done. The only thing we didn’t like was the hotel’s business wing, which totally spoilt the look of this beautiful resort. We quite enjoyed the traditional cuisine in their restaurant, I think it was Nalukettu, though I wouldn’t be able to remember the names of the dishes, but their chef was there to help us choose from the menu according to our tastes. My daughter was a regular on their room service and the hotel staff was efficient and very courteous. This place was a fantastic find.

  • Liked — getting to stay in a traditional Kerala house in the backwaters for a really cheap price
  • Disliked — the housekeeping and maintenance of the cottages could have been better
  • Stayed March 2008, travelled with family
