Wish we could have stayed longer and I will certainly return. Loved my private pool, the outside bathroom (not as unusual as it sounds) the delicious food and great service. I also thought the in-hotel boutique offered a good range of well made goods - great for a retail therapist!

Stayed: February 2018, travelled with friends

This resort is perfect for taking a converted rice barge to the backwaters near Allepi. The boat is clean, great chef and friendly crew. 2 nights aboard exploring the lake and canals was maybe 1 night short. luxurious and totally relaxing. The resort has 2 pools and food is great but expensive

Room Tip: pool villas are a must

Exceptionally friendly and helpful staff, beautiful facilities and delicious food in the Backwaters of Kerala. Afternnon complimenatary tea with snacks was a nice touch as was the welcome coconut drink. Music and dance provided for our enjoyment and beautiful floral arrangements enhanced the experience.

Room Tip: We had a villa room on the meandering pool which was private and comfortable, well outfitted with a lovely open-air shower and bathroom.

We stayed here inn FEB 2018. we stayed for three days, went to another location as part of our travel plans and then back to the Lake Resort for a spot of RnR before heading back to the UK.

We just loved this place.

We live in a tiny village in the UK and two other couples had already been to this hotel and recommended it. I am very pleased we listened.

Top highlight was the general ambience of the resort. It is very nicely situated, peaceful and in particular has a traditional feel it is with a lot of wood used in the décor.

there are two places to eat and we enjoyed the food in both. We are big fans of seafood and were extremely well catered for a la carte. The buffet option in the evening was also of a high quality. plenty of unusual pre and freshly cooked offerings: meat fish and of course oodles of vegetarian options.

The infinity pool was (1) stunning and (2) never busy. I became especially fond of a sleep in a swaying hammock post lunch.

I did yoga at dawn each day and loved the relaxation as well as the positions in the practice we shared for one hour. I would commend the instructor who has the most hypnotic voice.

I used the gym (not great but OK, bike, cross training, running machine all old and bit crappy really and free weights).

I would like to make two special mentions and they are both about staff.

First all staff get the thumbs up from me. Very kind, engaged, helpful. However my number one dude was HARI. He is absolutely fantastic at his job on the front desk. So on a professional level tick tick tick. However the real gem of Hari is his helpful, charming nature. He really contributed to our stay advising me on onward travel, troubleshooting said travel, ordering early breakfast, cars for early departure etc etc. ten gold stars.

We took the hotel car to the airport when we left and I would highly recommend that
too.

Don't think about it do it.
