Backwater Ripples
Ranked #9 of 26 Hotels in Kumarakom
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 August 2012

Lake Kumarakom is a natural back water reservoir of Arabian Sea in Kerala and has quite a few resorts on it's shores. I stayed at Backwater Ripples with my friends and family recently and am impressed by the ambience and land scaping of the resort. the place is wonderful with a very freindly staff and impeccable hospitality. rooms are very neat and spacious and you do not feel cramped in side. pool side is overlooking the lake waters and you can sit there enjoying the sunset.

Room Tip: lake view rooms are better

i was on a vacation from 12July till 14 july in this resort with my family & must say excellent service by the staff the resort is excellent only because of wonderful staff, right from the front office to the speed boat staff & the hosekeeping staff, only they have to improve on is food service is good. The young man at Front Dest Nikio was excellent.

Room Tip: I had the room view which was pool side view & it was really a very good room.
