My third visit. Very good as always. They are a bit stricter with the drinking of alcohol which is no longer allowed in the dining room - one must indulge in the beer parlour . Also the WiFi is a bit slow in various parts of the establishment.

Rooms are not in the up to mark conditions. Taps broken, door locks damaged, wooden work craving for polish etc.. View from rooms are simply awesome especially marina. Location wise... More

Used to be one of the top most popular spot in Cochin.The resoirt is still one of the best of in-resorts restaurants. The most important thing is the lake view that you get the place while dining.Romantic :)

The reception was friendly and a little bizarre. The three ladies behind the front desk all smiled and nodded in unison. A glass of tepid watermelon juice was given to me upon arrival. There was a door opener man who was opening the lobby door the entire vacation. At night there were guards on the property standing up all night... More
