Whispering Waters is located between Kodanad Elephant Rearing Centre and Thattekad Bird Sanctuary. Just a mere 30 minutes of scenic drive from the Kochi International Airport through cool green rubber plantations and rustic village roads will take you to this amazingly peace filled and unexploited part of Paniely Poru. The resort features 20 elegantly furnished rooms with private balcony, a large swimming pool, conference hall, multi-cuisine dining, and a host of other environmentally friendly activities along its picturesque river trails. The view of the foreground from any part of the resort is soothing and fascinating, with the flowing river in the front and the picturesque Western Ghats beyond. The compound is fairly large, providing plenty of space to walk around and enjoy raw nature. There is a well maintained garden (buffalo grass lawn) and tall teak trees form a cool canopy over the resort units within the compound.

Stayed with my extended family for a night. We booked 7 rooms. The rooms were very spacious and well thought out. The bed is big and comfortable, the bath rooms are big and maintained. The a/c, tv and kettle were all working properly except in one room, which they temporary fixed. The rooms have extra chairs and sofas, the balcony is well furnished with a good view. The property is not large and has limited area for walking around. The pool is decent and well maintained. There is a small play area for kids. The staff is friendly and cooperative. There is no access to the river in front of the resort from the resort itself, since the rocky river can be tricky and dangerous. We had buffet lunch and dinner. The spread is limited by quality good. But I found it very odd that we were all required to take our used dishes and plates ourselves from our table and keep it at an area they designated. Maybe because it was due to a lack of staff, but usually the restaurant staff clear the plates from our tables once we are finished eating. All in all it was a decent stay and good break.

I visited this resort along with my family and my cousins family. Location :: This is located in a calm place, away from the hustle and bustle of the city and the traffic. Its also right on the banks of the Periyar river. View from the resort is superb. Service :: Very good service. Attitude of the staff was good as well. Amenities :: Pretty good and well maintained park for the kids. Swing/Slide/Trampoline for kids. My kids and my cousins kids had a great time in the park. Very good and big swimming pool. View excellent. Food :: We are vegetarians. Food was decent. COVID:: Covid protocols were not strict here. (We visited during March/April 2021) just before the 2nd wave started. Would prefer the covid protocols to be followed strictly.

One of the worst experiences ever. We had booked 5 rooms and out of it 4 rooms had AC problems , when reported to the manager Aby he came up with stupid excuses. Poor hospitality. Staff was impolite and non cooperative.

This property has a very good location..right on the banks of the river Perier. A real hidden treasure. We stayed there for 3 nights. The rooms and bathrooms were clean. The f&b has scope of improvement. A very special to the manager Aby who is extremely courtesy, always smiling and always willing to help. He would just ensure that the guest is happy and would go out of the way. He was go to person and he never let you down. Great Work Aby...keep continuing what u doing..its truly excellent...

We take a river view room in this hotel for seeing river views at mornings.Our room was spacious and clean with a view of the river. The vegetarian food was tasty. So it is better to take river view room for enjoying morning blues.

A good resort away from the busy city. Roads to the location is winding & not good surface. Use your Google to reach the location. Once you reach the resort it is really great. good view of Periyar River flowing & view of forest beyond that. Rooms are good. Nothing great. They have a nice small pool & a two deck to view the river & forest. Food is good local dishes. Service is great. Resort need some more housekeeping & cleaning of rubbish

We stayed for a dear friends wedding. It was a family scale venue that was both spacious and cozy. The hotel staff are all happy and very friendly. The rooms were a decent size and had all you need including air conditioning and a fan. The balcony was lovely. Overall the food was very good. The location is remote but beautiful and there are some good walking trails nearby. We managed to spot a wild elephant across from the resort at the waters edge. Overall the resort is very clean and quiet. Very few bugs/mosquitos etc which was a welcome surprise. Downsides: English is not fully understood by most of the staff The gym is not equipped enough to be considered a gym It’s a bit of a rough ride/winding ride to get to the location. They don’t have real coffee, only nescafe. They don’t have conditioner or body wash so bring your own.

We 40+ have visited for a day trip. Extremely Satisfied with the ambiance and amenities provided. Staffs are extremely helpful. They organised group games like Tug of war, Treasure hunt, Bucket filing, Baloon bursting and Gossip games. The gang loved all. The lunch and snacks served were both standard and delicious. Evening we had a pool time. Thanks to Aby and other staffs (2 Vishnus and one more persons)for making it a memorable day for us.
