I have stayed for one night and enjoyed the overall stay. The landscaping and the atmosphere is very good. They do have in- house activities like boating, fishing, spa which keeps guest engaged. They should have provision of secured parking place.

Very unique resort with heritage rooms. Landscaping inside is quite nice including a small pond with pedal boating. Hammocks are available on the lawns. Food was average.

They offer boating on the backwaters up to Andhakaranazhi beach. Mosquitoes are a nuisance after sunset. There was a lot of noise from loud speakers in the vicinity.

Service staff is very polite and friendly.

Note: Our visit was in Nov 2016. I could not choose dates before Jan 2017 on the review page.

The location and the serenity of the place makes you fall in love with the resort. You are made to move inside hotel through a small boat .the rooms are awesome and have everything that you may require . The outside view of the room turns you speechless . You actually get the feeling of staying there not for one or two days but forever. The food is yummy at the resort . The services they provide are all good.

A lovely experience of quiet luxury, excellent service and quality food. Rooms and bathrooms are very spacious and stylish with views across the wetlands and coconut palms. We enjoyed the boat trip down the river to the beach and a memorable morning cycling and boating through the wetlands, and birdwatching with Abhijith.

Room Tip: Ask for a water view.

Kondai Lip has the potential to become a very highly rated resort but needs to iron out some key kinks.

Pros:-
1. Good rooms
2. Helpful staff
3. Great ambience
4. Array of activities in the resort

Cons:-
1. Approach to the resort is by a short (1 minute) boat ride. The backwater channel was quite dirty. Hotel should clean up around the entrance.

2. Lawn is irregular and full of small ant-hills. Must improve lawn maintenance

3. Breakfast was terrible. Sambar was too thick (like a dal), chutney was bland. Instead of providing a wide variety of breakfast options they should focus on improving quality of a few items

4. Massage center was terrible. I still have knee pain from the vigorous pressing against the wooden massage bed.

5. Only Kerala main course food was good - other options were terrible.

These are small areas of improvement, not at all a deal breaker. Overall, I had a good time at the resort but wished that they could iron out the problems listed above.
