“Birds Galore”
Reviewed 7 March 2012

We loved every minute here. Four adult birdwatchers in their element. We were the only guests but the food that just kept on coming out of the kitchens was amazing. True Kerelan cooking and everything was excellant. The resort is a little laid back. Nothing is rushed. Rooms are spotless. All the linen is changed every day. Lots of good walking nearby and a small swimming pool to cool off in when you return. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

Bird's lagoon is a fantastic place where you will reside amidst of nature. Friendly staff and cool place to be. when you want to spend time with your loved one with out any other disturbance and want to enjoy the present moment, i would suggest you this place. An unforgettable place to be and i would love to go back again. Nothing much place to roam around except a dam.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the pond give a very good view. There are various size rooms available. hence you can p...

It's a very nice resort, nice rooms, nice staff. The only thing, they don't accept credit card, make sure to be prepared. The food was delicious. The location is good if you like very secluded places. It's very far from everything, and have your google maps because taxis don't always know this hotel! It is VERY relaxing, nothing else to do than relax ;) Enjoy!! :)

Room Tip: Take a lake view cottage, very nice!

Only one night here but what a location, sat and watched the birds while we had lunch. Evening meal was good and staff friendly.
It's a very quiet location but only a short drive from Cochin airport.
Room was very comfortable and we hope to return.

A lovely, quiet resort to relax in after visiting the busy, bustling Kochi. Lodges placed around central water feature. Grounds well kept and litter free. Outdoor eating overlooking lake very pleasant. Food was very tasty with large portions. Swimming pool disappointing- rather small and round so we did not use it. We visited for two nights in October when it rained each evening but sitting on lodge porch watching the lightning light up the lake was rather romantic.

Room Tip: We stayed in Hornbill lodge- lovely position opposite water feature and eating area.
