“Divine Experiance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2011

Normally what u see in web site of hotels/resorts generally looks very attractive and in person the total picture changes. Our Myth was totally broken when we arrived and stayed at The Lake Village Resort kottayam in Kerala. It was more beautiful than one see on their Web Site. We were there from 8th to 12th of august 2011. Property is surrounded by back Water . It is really a paradise and stay was really like you are in GODs OWN COUNTRY. The staff of this resort is so Humble, Caring, Co-operative and nice, they really spoil you by giving the princely treatment. They are always smiling and ready for any help. The services from the entire department like Plumbers, Electrician, House keeping, Cleaning and Catering are very much on their Toes to sort out any problem or request of the quest to be fulfilled promptly... 

maintenance is superb. Each and every staff are very much alert and helpful. Eg. Hammock in front of our Villa was broken and we were trying to fix it. A Lady Sweeper from maintenance dept was collecting the dry leaves etc saw us struggling to fix the hammock. With in a minute two person came besides us with the new Hammock and apologized fro the broken Hammock and changed the Hammock with the new in no time. 

All the rooms are well maintained like our homes. The villas/ Rooms have ancient architectural designed exterior and interior. Rooms have unique open to sky Bathroom. Air conditions are very powerful and the bedrooms are very Big and lavish. 

Food is excellent .Staff at Restaurant are very energetic and keep it very clean. Food served is best and we always wondered that why people always say that food in South is big problem? I have an answer   it that now that those who say so should come to here

I went to this place based on the reviews I read with my wife and kid. The place is very peaceful and quiet which I personally liked. Even though this is not exactly in  kumarakom, I think it should be by far the best in and around kottayam. I would really like to thank each and every one of the hotel staff for their warmth and kindless. Here are few tips for people who may plan to go to this part of kerala and are considering this hotel

1) For booking contact Mr. Ajo  from the resort. Check for the special offers that they have on the website and plan accordingly.  

2) Do take the airport pickup and drop service directly from the hotel as the one from the airport (pre paid cabs)  costs almost the same.  Also once at the hotel check if you can get the lake side room, its really nice to just walk out from the room and directly get in the swimming pool and look at the lake from there.

3) As soon as you arrive, make sure that you meet with Mr.Abhilash and plan up the iteneray with him along with the transport provided. He will work out the best with the number of days available to you. 

4) The boat cruise  is AWESOME. it might be one of the best in terms of facilities. The staff on the boat are really nice and helpful, so do take a half day cruise  

5)Ayurveda  centers. The 2 Massages a day was haven on earth and twice a day Yoga was very helpfull also. If somebody like to take care of there health, thats the place to go.
6)The food available at the hotel  is the best available around the hotel. Try to check if there are any lunch plus dinner offer and you might take that. Try the tandoori  karimeen (pearlspot)

To summarize, my stay was really pleasant, the only thing I missed was RAINS. It must be awesome when it rains in these places :)

This was our first time at an Ayurvedic resort so we decided to book the 14 days Rejuvenation Therapy package to try it out. It was definitely worth it. The massages were close to perfect the staff and doctors are very friendly and competent. We had our own hammock in front of the cottage which was perfect to relax after the daily our treatments.
Fabulous service, excellent facilities, great pool, fabulous cottages and real ayurvedic diet food. Ayurveda treatments was very good and Authentic kerala style treatments . The landscaped gardens on the lake side are beautiful. Would recommend one day at least where you don't leave the resort.

However, if you are looking for a place to recharge your batteries than this is the place to be. We will definitely be back.

We were there for 1Night -2Days. We took the Magic Jasmine honey moon package which was all incl.( Candle light dinner , fruit basket , badam milk, breakfast , special cake , wine and country boat trip).

The cottage are AC and it was pleasantly pre-cooled when we arrived in the room. It was clean and exactly as shown in pictures (was on upstairs floor). The ground floor rooms have living room with balcony & open Bathroom with plants .In the garden hammock for relaxing in evening or early morning.

The food was very good with wide variety of South Indian, north Indian and continental food. Breakfast was also very good. Fresh juices, fruits were served in breakfast.
we used the Spa for massage and ayurvedic treatments and it was good.

All in all it was very pleasant stay for us and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

We stayed in a cottage at the resort during the last week of Feb '11. The resort was very beautiful and well maintained with great food and service. It is surrounded by beautiful backwaters on sides and the views are breathtaking. We would love to go back.
