The location of this property is really beautiful, it is very quiet and tranquil. Vinod does everything to make your stay very comfortable, you can even have a laugh with him, he can arrange a boat trip on the cannals, which to me is better than a houseboat on the lake. You see life on the canals which you would,not...

Vismaya is the most wonderful place we have stayed during our extended trip in Southern India. The setting is absolutely stunning. Vinod and the rest of the team are the most gracious hosts and made our stay here absolutely perfect. We booked a 5 night package in one of the bedrooms which included dinner, breakfast, a private back water boat...

I can only describe Vismaya as something else, different, beautiful, relaxing and cosy. I can only describe the last reviewer as also "something else"! I cannot comment on their personal opinion, however their rather privileged tone is embarrassing. Vismaya is stunning. Everything about it is full of joy. It is also VERY good value for money, I cannot believe anyone...

Other reviews had been very good so we expected this place to be horribly expensive but worth every penny . Instead it was just horribly expensive . We made the mistake of staying there four nights and did not realise when we booked that the living space is really sized for just one couple or a family group ( as...

We discovered this hidden gem by chance and it was wonderful in all respects: location, service, room comfort, peacefulness, beauty. The fact that the resort only has too room make you feel like you are in a private villa, with a 5star service on top.

We stayed here after doing the traditional sights of India up North. We looked at beaches in Goa but all looked poor so settled on here as it was at least by a lake. How lucky a find was that. We have stayed at many places looking for relaxation but never as good as this. Rooms were in a traditional...

Splendid resort. Every attention to detail has been paid - elegant and very comfortable. Attentive and well trained team led by Vinod who is just amazing. Home cooked meals are top quality and world class. Plan a minimum of 3 nights.

We had a perfect 3 days here and were so well looked after by Vinod and his team and had absolutely stunning food prepared by the incomparable Babu. There were 4 of us in our group and it was just like a dream. The only problem was that we had to leave! A trip to a famous 5 star hotel...

After a long trip through India we have found that amazing place. Better than good. The right place for relaxing, enjoying and having good times. Vinod and his team take care in a perfect way. Food will be prepared daily fresh. If you are looking for a quiet and personal home for those is Vismaya the perfect choice.

If true peace and tranquility is what you desire then this is the haven you seek. It is very tastefully appointed, with every small detail thought of. Lovingly restored down to the last light switch, it's a stylists dream. There are handprinted cushions, fresh flowers around the napkins at each meal and even a swing in the bathroom. At night...
