“beautiful house boat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2012

we had 1 night on a beautiful houseboat with air con from this resort on our tour of Kerala with Musafir Tours (highly reccommended)

The trip was peaceful and very beautiful. We were cared for by a crew of 3, fabulous food, (althoguh far too much), and we had a really good night sleep on the lovely comfy large bed in the air con cabin.

Cruising on the lake is lovely and a real must on a tour of this beautiful country.

Back at the resort we had a lovely breakfast in the hotel. Excellent choice of every kind of thing you could possibly need at breakfast time

Room Tip: Air con and sealed dining room a must

The resort is too good a place to stay. except for a few bad points they are one up of above all big hotels there.

1. the Table tennis table was in bad shape and Snooker table too was not in good condition,
in such a great hotel, they should take care of this issue on urgent basis

2, The breakfast was good, but dinner was not that great for the money charged

I had planned a one night trip, and as soon as i checked in,i realized one night is too less for this great resort, so immediately i extended by another.
We stayed at the Heritage Villa with private pool. The check in was smooth and we were given a tender coconut as welcome drink. The rooms were excellent and the open bathroom is an amazing experience. The infinity pool is very good too. We went on the sunset cruise with traditional music and before that we had kerala tea with traditional snacks at the Thattukada.
There is nothing to do around but this place is so nice that you do not really want to go out

Room Tip: Go for Heritage villa with a pvt pool, its an amazing experience

We stayed there for a day in Sptember 2011. The place is absolutely stunning, very well-maintained with a beautiful setting. There is an abundance of natural beauty and you can relax for hours together absorbing it and doing nothing. The staff is quite courteous though the service is a little slow.

I had a wonderful time in Kumarakom Lake Resort. We stayed at the Heritage Villa with private pool. The check in was smooth and we were given a tender coconut as welcome drink. The rooms were excellent as before and the open bathroom is an amazing experience. The infinity pool is very good too. We went on the sunset cruise with traditional music and before that we had kerala tea with traditional snacks at the Thattukada. The dinner was excellent and the spread was big. The chef Mr. Subin greeted our group and we were looked after very well. Special remarks for Mr. Teji and Sanjay who was at front office, Mr. Hari at restaurant, Mr. Subin, the chef, Mr. Jose at the Thattukada and Mr. Sherin, the activity manager. Very good experience.

Room Tip: All the rooms are excellent and everything offers different experience. Meandering Pool Villa is the...

We stayed 3 nights at the hotel (including one night on the HouseBoat). The service is perfect, the rooms very clean and confortable. The food is delicious but very expensive (1,200 rps for a lunch buffet...). They wanted to charge us 3,600 rps for an extra bed in our room. I thought it was far to expensive for a camping bed (very basic) and a breakfast. I complained about it and they agreed to reduce the price at 1,500 rps.
There is nothing to do around but this place is so nice that you do not really want to go out! The SPA is fantastic. I had a massage and a banana facial. Unforgettable!

Room Tip: Do not take a room with private pool. It is much nicer to be around the lagoon.
