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 :)

Room Tip: Ask for room 114

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.

A Cool and awesome place for Honeymoon Couples to spend ample time without much disturbance. Good Service and Hospitality from the Team members of the Resort.In the night we went for fishing in a country boat with lantern through the resorts private lake in the moonlight . This was an unforgettable experience which I couldn’t get anywhere in the world.
