Hi all, Myself and my extended family including my Mum and Dad had visited the renowned Abad whispering Palms Kumarakom on our 3 weeks holidays in Kerala ....We are settled in Perth, Australia. We enquired about an upgrade of our rooms only to be denied as we were told the property is flat out and all the rooms are occupied....ok,great ...fair enough. We got to the rooms and were greeted by lizards and it's poo on the beds.... alright may be housekeeping needs to be more vigilant and let it go.... Myself and my wife had a massage (Abhayagam)each at the Ayurvedic Centre only to found that the company who had contract earlier had left and the new company was only settling in with new staff and even knowledge of different treatments were limited...this information was not passed on to us at the reception and by the property manager. The room service was used by us few times....the left over glasses and trays were left by us outside the room....it was quite surprising that the trays and glasses were still outside when we left the property after two days.....it's a joke. Suggestion to my western friends : Please carry spare toilet rolls if you have young kids as the property will only supply one. Electricity will be cut off/on few times at night ....just for fun. Myself and my brother have two elderly daughters.... obviously they did enjoy the beautiful pool facing the famous vembanad lake...quite a lot of families were enjoying their time by having a splash in the pool.... My brother during our swim in the pool noted that Security guard of the property who is meant to be looking after the guests and their safety was busy filming the elderly ladies and young people in swim suits and respective attires... We brought this to the attention of the Front office manager when we checked out and ....guess what...he was simply defending themselves,the guard and the property. I had stayed at the Water escapes,The Taj Kumarakom prior to this....and this experience at the 4 to 5 star property of the renowned Abad group...was....not on,not professional and simply ridiculous.... I might visit this property in the future just to use their restaurant....because the food was good. Staying there again....no way....It will be bit too much adventure for our families and we are not prepared for this type of hospitality. Whispering Palms Abad, Kumarakom..... literally spoiled mine and my family's three weeks holidays to Kerala (My God's own country....where I was born and lived for 24 years before I settled down in Australia) Regards Finu Chirayath Francline

Awsome location, serene ambiance, cordial staff, delicious food. We have choosen one lake view and one pool villa for the stay. Staff behaviour was friendly and coperative. Restaurant offers quite a delicious food menu. One scope for improvement - resort can try something for pest control, which will control lizards and others.

Excellent property with Vebanad Lake view. Perfect location of relaxation. Courteous and well behaved staff especially Mr. Baiju in Granary restaurant. Front office staff, house keeping and security were very polite and welcoming. Food in Granary was superb especially morning breakfast and chicken 65 which is must try. Indian classical instrumental music programs at lobby every evening. Boating facility and house boats available on request. Swimming pool with Vebanad lake view was excellent. Stayed for two nights in Lake View cottage..

We had an amazing stay at this quaint picturesque resort overlooking lake Vembanad The in house restaurant too had an amazing spread for every meal of the day. Chef Gopakumar really outside himself everytime, especially with 'Kerala on a plate'. This is a highly recommended resort for anyone who wants a quick weekend getaway or even a fortnight. No amount of days stay here seems enough!
