We spent one wonderful night at this resort hotel, with its own landscaped lagoon and on the banks of Lake Vembanad. We'd had a long drive through the Western Ghats from Tamil Nadu and were on our way to Kochi. As our photos indicate, the Zuri is a charming place to relax and empty one's mind after a busy and somewhat chaotic day touring.
We'd booked a deluxe lagoon view room and were upgraded from the ground floor to the upper floor, which had superior views and a striking vaulted ceiling. The room felt spacious and we particularly enjoyed sitting on the private balcony overlooking the lagoon with glimpses of the vast Lake Vembanad through the coconut palms. We took a walk through the property and saw the sun set over the Lake. The Zuri is worth visiting for the views alone.
We delayed our checkout until 12 noon so as to enjoy the swimming pool, set in a quiet, private section of the resort.
I'd certainly recommend staying here for more than just one night. The hotel is in a spectacularly beautiful location, none of the rooms overlook one another and the highest wing is just two stories high. There's no sense of crowding or rushing. A nice touch was the complimentary afternoon tea in the gardens. There's no need to leave the property, since the restaurant is very pleasant and there's live entertainment from Indian musicians.
