Really enjoyed the location. Beautiful narrow local road and friendly neighbourhood. Beautiful spot to watch the sunset over the lake. Host was very helpful with giving us travel tips and directions. So much natural beauty but SO much litter too. Plastic everywhere and dirty water. TONS of mosquitoes but they stay outside as the room as AC. We enjoyed this spot as it felt peaceful, homely and authentic.

Even though being greeted and treated quiet charmingly, the rooms were literally a mood spoiler. The package was a moderate one and we were quite happy about that, but shockingly a room with nothing but dust, no waste bins and No door lock for the "BATHROOM"!!! made us think the package was quite high. The breakfast served was of 5 star level, not on the basis of food quality but on the base of rates. We were charged half of the stay for just a breakfast. Just to summarize I won't even think of a second visit to this place.

We stayed in Sylvania for almost one week at the beginning of January 2016. This place is a bird sanctuary itself, cottages in a huge garden plenty of trees and all kind of birds, far away from all noisy streets. A place of peace from where you may admire the sunset over Vembanad lake.
We are thankful for the great hospitality, the nice homely food and all experiences we made with all the lovely people there! Gisela & Walter

Room Tip: All wooden cottages are shadowed by trees and all are very calm

Horrible experience in total.... Please do not ever think of staying here.... Firstly the rooms were unclean, full of cobwebs and smelly.... The food that they served was cold, horrible and highly priced... For an example. we ordered for only 3 boiled potatoes for my ill grandmother... And to our surprise they had charged Rs.20 per potato.... There were only 4 rooms of which we had occupied three of them, but Kuttapan , the owner could not even manage that properly... Since there were no other option we had to pay and have what they served... We had also hired a houseboat from them for a single day... Before booking they had managed to send some beautiful snaps of the houseboat which they were charging Rs.9000 for two double bedded rooms inclusive of all meals... But the actual picture was horrible...The rooms were smelly and the kitchen was very filthy and shabby... The crew members were indecent n rude ... So travellers be aware of such fraud people while planning your trip ..... Stay away from Sylvania Tourist Enclave...

Room Tip: The only help I can provide is... Plz stay away from Sylvania Tourist enclave
