Stayed at the meandering pool Villa. Lovely Villa. Pool was excellent. Most importantly the staff was outstanding. Attentive, friendly and great at their work. Food was great. Would recommend taking an overnight houseboat trip. A unique experience.

This one of the VERY BEST COMPLETE FAMILY we ever had after travelling around the WORLD!

Even though this 7 star Heritage resort is few miles away from our hometown we never ever visted them. ..

Right from the word GO. ..the experience was mind blogging. .their staff..their front office. ..their rooms. .their restaurants. ..their service ...their facilities were PAR EXCELLENCE!

They are MASTER OF CUSTOMER SERVICE and ensure that each and every customer is treated like a KING or a QUEEN!

Words cannot express the experience. .SO GO FOR IT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. ..and explore why they are the VERY BEST and why THE ROYALS, THE POPULAR STARS, THE DIGNITARIES, THE RICH & THE FAMOUS, THE TRAVELLERS make a beeline to the HERITAGE RESORT beside the WORLD FAMOUS VEMBANNAD BACKWATERS lake!

Don't miss the overnight HOUSEBOAT stay...the experience is MIND BLOWING!

3 nights in the resort with Ayurveda massage & relaxation clubbed with a day night stay in the HOUSEBOAT will leave a long lasting memory etched in your mind forever!

Totally worth each & every dollar you spend...

It should be a MUST DO for any serious fun loving traveller/ family !

Stayed: August 2017, travelled with family

Kumarkom lake resort is absolutely fantastic. It takes only 2h 30 minutes from cochin which is a great relief .
I recommend choosing meandering lake villa because the pool is literally outside the room. The best for family!. they have a complementary sunset cruise at 5:30 pm and is at another level of tranquility. they have a good kids club which is pretty big and is enjoyable for kids. there are other external activities such as pottery, mat weaving and cycling which allows kids to take their minds of the gadgets and is a great first time experience as well. No complaints on food whatsoever and was pretty decent, to say for least. Duplex Room is the best. . They have 40 inch LED TV's which not a lot of hotels cannot provide and has a great variety of TV channels. it is absolutely air- conditioned and is great. best part of the room is the pool. When you/your family steps into the balcony, u can step in the pool and u can stay there for a lot of time. For extra- info, the pool is about 4 ft deep. I have no complaints about this hotel and it is absolutely worth the money,time and kids and family will love it.

Room Tip: Private pool villa or Duplex villa

We visited Kumarkom in Sept 2017. Hugely impressed by the property and the way it was maintained. Lush green, pleasant, pure fresh air, every where you looked, it looked like it was a picture straight out of a frame!
About 2 nights, 3 days seem like a perfect time span to visit the property and enjoy it to the fullest if you intend to go for a relaxing time. You might need more time if you intend to visit near by places.
There are a lot of things to do while you are there - Yoga/Meditation in the morning, pottery making, mat making, fishing, cycling, swimming in the infinity pool, evening sunset cruise etc.
Highly recommend for a visit here!!!!

Room Tip: Heritage villa with private swimming pool with jacuzzi and open bathroom! You could also choose the meandering swimming pool villa.

Kumarakom Lake Resort is definitely "paradise on earth". We had a very hectic week before and went there for 5 days of relaxation. We were there with our son and his family. We stayed in the water villa where the door opened on to the long meandering pool. Our 7 year old grand daughter loved it and we could not get her out of the pool except at meal times. All the staff were amazing and nothing was too much bother.

Room Tip: Best rooms were water villas in our opinion
