This quaint luxury four-bedroom villa is a mere half hour away from the heart of Ernakulam City & Fort Kochi at the Panangad Island. You can access this by road. All bedrooms have a large glass wall/door that looks out onto the backwaters in front of the property. If the view outdoors isn't enough, two of the four ensuite rooms here at 976 have attached plunge pools . The common infinity pool also looks over the backwaters and 976 Panangad is now renowned as much for its spectacular vistas as it is for its fascinating architecture. Authentic Kerala cuisine served with a view of the Chinese fishing nets ahead make your stay all the more memorable. Expect a fascinating array of fresh seafood cooked in mouthwatering Kerala spices. Head out with our kayaks or little row boat to experience the magic of the backwaters first hand with schools of flying fish and Brahmini kites overhead keeping you company. Or make your way to Fort Kochi which is just 15 kms away.

About 40 min away from Kochi, 976 Panangad is the perfect place to unwind, enjoy the birds and backwaters of Kerala, and eat delicious food. The first thing to notice upon arrival were the stunning gardens surrounding the beautiful villa. We were welcomed by Robby, the friendly manager who was always around when needed, but at the same time gave us our personal space. Rooms were comfy and the bathrooms nice and roomy. Panangad is clean and well maintained. We’d love to return here one day and explore more of Kochi.

We were a group of family members (3 couples and 3 cousins -total 11) who had our 2023 New Years eve party in this property. Although the property allows a maximum of 12 pax , ideally this is suited for 4 couples with small kids since they have 4 rooms facing the backwaters. 2 rooms at the extreme ends have small splash pools . The rooms are well appointed . The dining area has a well stocked bar counter with cocktail shakers, cocktail books (there are other books too) glasses, coasters, wine opener , bar fridge etc and the dining table is big enough for 12. There is a good pool and the property provides kayaks to explore the backwaters. There are enough seating areas by the pool -but cannot be used much in the night due to mosquito issue. Mr. Roby and his crew of 7 members including a very talented chef is sure to take good care of your food and housekeeping. Their impeccable service is what makes the stay memorable. Thanks to each one of them. Getting to the property is not too difficult although the last section of the road is a very narrow one- but that is the price you need to pay for exclusivity and privacy. We would have given a full five star to the property . The rating is downgraded to Very good 2 reasons- 1. The water pressure in the showers were less than expected -we did bring this to notice of Mr. Roby and probably this was a one off issue specific to the date and would have been taken care of by now. 2. The price for the property was a little bit on the steep side since it was a New year eve stay . Probably it would have been more reasonable on other dates- the pricing was not value for money and could have been improved.

We went as family- so had all the rooms occupied. It was definitely an experience to remember! The location had 5* amenities in every room. We relaxed by the pool and had tea/ coffee served to the pool which was lovely! We were also able to go canoeing in the backwaters which was lovely, they don’t offer supervision though things are explained well. At night there were board games to keep us occupied which was good fun with the Bluetooth speakers! We definitely recommend this to any one visiting and have already recommended to our family and friends! Thanks again to the staff for the lovely staff!

Excellent place for a quick family getaway. We travelled with my 5yr old daughter, husband and my parents and grandparents as well. All age groups enjoyed alot. The good was excellent homely Kerala food. Roby and his team organized a barbecue one evening. Again the experience and the food was great. We will definitely come here again!

For a working couple like us it's not so easy to take a break and enjoy our private moments. But when we got a chance, Panangad resort made our trip so memorable with breathtaking view of back water and lush green surroundings. Food was awesome. Staffs were courteous enough to understand our needs. Such a nice place in our neighbourhood is really a great advantage for us. We will definitely recommend for others. Waiting for next chance to join them again.

We, a group of 10 friends, booked 976 Panangad after reading rave reviews about the same online - although it was on the pricier end, we thought it would be worth it since the villa was rated as one of India's 50 best villas. However, our experience was quite disappointing and did not match our expectations AT ALL. The issues we faced were: 1. Poor attitude of management and service: The tone and tenor in which the manager spoke with us was extremely unapproachable and un-accommodating. He flatly refused to arrange any food for us for lunch since we had not informed him of the same before. We understood that maybe he would not have had the ingredients, but he refused to provide us a solution for the same or show any degree of hospitability until we expressed some dissatisfaction at his behaviour. 2. No privacy: The villa touts itself on providing full privacy and not having any cameras. However, the manager would keep coming into the common space and tell us repeatedly to shower before entering the pool, to not enter any space without wiping ourselves with a towel, etc. We are adults, paying over 80k for a single night in a villa - we did not appreciate this constant nudging from him. Further, this "no cameras" backfired when one of my friends lost 8k in cash at the property. 3. Kayaks: We are a group of 10 - we were told we would be given the facility to kayak included in our fare. However, for a group of 10, there was only ONE kayak available. We were extremely disappointed at this. 4. Essentials not available: We requested for bowls to put the stew/chutney in at breakfast and they flatly said they did not have bowls! We found this ridiculous. They did not provide us with an ice box when asked as well. 5. Bathroom tap and pipe started leaking and flooded the entire room: This happened at night, and really disrupted our experience, because the entire room was flooded. When the manager was called to fix the same, he asked ridiculous questions like "Did you leave the tap on?". Once again, further enraging us because this is NOT the service we paid so much money for. The only pros of this property are the gorgeous views and the pools, which frankly can be found at other properties which are cheaper and have much better service. I would think twice before recommending this place to anyone.
