The atmosphere and ambience were great! The hotel is located just by the lake in a very remote area (20 km from Kumarakom). It's run as a family business, and you can see that they put all their hearts into the resort. The food was the best part as it was homemade, always fresh! Overall - great hotel for relaxing...

So anyone expecting to do some local sightseeing from this place should keep in mind that they have to take a taxi around for almost everything. Having said...

We loved our stay here. Mr. Thomas and his wife Reshmi are amazing hosts. The food was amazing, the property is beautiful, and everything is just perfect. Do ask them to arrange for a backwater boat tour for you.

“The lake side rooms have the best view of the lake, the lagoon rooms have a canal next to it. The lake view rooms are near the entrance.”
