As soon as you you are on the main entrance, chances are you might be disappointed, as were we because the entrance is not grand or very inviting. Once you have crossed the main gate and the driveway you are in front of the main Porch which is beautiful and made in typical Kerala style architecture.You have a good view of the pool from there which looks beautiful and is well maintained.We stayed in the Lagoon facing room. The rooms are clean and basic nothing really great about them.The bathrooms are clean and half open which was quite intriguing. Food was average nothing great or extraordinary. They do not serve Ala-carta for dinner, so you are forced to take the buffet which is quite average.The biggest disappointment was there is no bar where you can hang around in the evening. There is nothing you can do in the evening at the resort ,they play some Carnatic music for a very short time but that s about it.And dinner is not served after 10 p.m so you are left with nothing to do in the night.You can carry your own liquor but are allowed to have it in the room itself. Getting liquor from anywhere around the resort is very difficult.
We took the motor boat ride in the lagoon which was quite average as the water is stinks and has turned black with all the diesel an exhaust from various motorboats . It is advisable to take the House Boat which takes you to the more beautiful parts of the backwaters.
For travelling to locations around the resort , pre booking a taxi with any tour operator is a better idea as cab fares are extremely high and charge you for the return as well.
Overall I would suggest this place to people who are looking for a decent resort to relax and soak in Kerala.
