This is a pleasant resort by the river, an easy 10 mins walk from Cheruthiruthi township. Our room was very large, clean and comfortable. The restaurant offered tasty meals at very reasonable prices. What was on offer for breakfast seemed to depend on how many people were staying -- but it was filling enough. The staff were very friendly, and there is a cosy bar (often missing from hotels in rural Kerala). Sometimes the lift to our floor juddered alarmingly before going up. The wifi worked well.

My name is Vijayan and I stayed here for 3 days with my family. The stay here was quite pleasant and relaxing. The rooms were spacious and well maintained. The Ayurvedic Spa had good masseuses and the staff were very responsive. The multi-cuisine restaurant here had good ambience and food, with a view of the river. Perhaps, the only issue was that we didn't get hot water in our rooms for the first two days. All in all, very satisfied with the stay.
