Was in Kerala attending a wedding and decided to sign off the trip with my 3 buddies (all guys) with a 2N/3D chill by The Vembanad Lake, Kumarakom. landed a deal with The Park Vembanad and over all it was a good stay. THUMBSUP FOR:3 of us shared a room which are cozy, spacious & adequately furnished. Food choice can be limited at times (didn't have peanuts, icecream) & Menu choice is flexible with Chef Kishore coming over daily to discuss preferences. Very friendly staff who are smartly attired. Overall clean & hygienic place. THUMBSDOWN: Difficult to locate with poor sign boards/directions (road). No nearby shops for small purchases. Resort don't have Bar/liquor licence although they arrange for beer from outside. Spa is terribly missed as of now & bathrooms could be better esp.shower/wet areas cordoned off. Mosquitoes real hazard- so carry repellant creams. Resort edge near Lake water edge is dangerous, no fencing & so not child friendly, so folks with kids watch out. Complimentary breakfast is dull, needs improving.
