#4 of 13 Speciality lodging in Thattekad
Located near the Thattekad Bird sanctuary, Soma Birds Lagoon is an exquisite combination of nature and luxury. A nest that cuddles you in the lap of Mother Nature. Being quite close to the sanctuary, guests at Soma Birds Lagoon have the privilege of watching more than 300 odd species of birds that is found in this vicinity. The Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary commonly known as The Thattekad Bird Sanctuary is also home to mammals like leopard, sloth bear, deer, elephant and porcupine besides a phenomenally diverse bird and butterfly population. Special care has been taken while building Soma Birds Lagoon, to preserve the village ambiance and ecological balance of this haven. So while providing all modern amenities, our cottages do not lose their rustic air. Soma Bird's lagoon is also an ideal place to experience Ayurveda and rejuvenate your body mind and soul.

Although the place gives the impression of being a little tired and past its best it is set in a wonderful location assuming you have your own transport to get too and from the place. Excellent location for Bird watching trips in the nearby forests. The rooms are reasonable large and well set out and the dining area overlooks the Lagoon. Great for an early evening beer before dinner. The WiFi reception was excellent which is unusual for such a remote location and well appreciated.

Really loved this place, staff were great. Food very good. Clean bungalows although abit dated. Peace and tranquillity in abundance, hired bikes and went kayaking which was great. Nothing much to do but a hill and appreciate nature and the birds. Had an excellent stay.

We had a good stay here. The accommodations are basic, but clean and well maintained. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our meals were very tasty and cooked to order. We particularly appreciated Jomon who was the receptionist/manager as well as the birding guide. His knowledge of the local birds, including the sounds and their habitats, was excellent. We went on two birding trips with him, where we saw many birds, that we enjoyed very much.

We loved our stay here. The staff were very hospitable and attentive but also very discreet. The view from our room was great- so many birds. The management also kindly posted on some blouses I'd left without any charge. We really recommend this hotel for a peaceful stay off the beaten track.

The location is special, the hospitality is warm, the service excellent, and the food was very good. The hotel also provided a top class guide to the Bird Sanctuary who identified every bird we heard or saw instantly.
