“A Really Memorable Experience !!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2012

Amazing location to spend my honeymoon in the Presidential Suite. The rooms are very neat and amenities are awesome. We really enjoyed the speed boat ride in the early morning. The staff members are very friendly and really helpful. The buffet was really awesome and the Indian chefs were very friendly. They gave us tips on cooking recipes.

Some areas of opportunity would be 1. Speed of service to help fix problems. I had to call thrice to get the TV fixed.
2. The buffet spread of food was uneven. On some occasions, it was really awesome lunches and dinners. Another occasion when we invited outside friends and family for dinner, the buffet dishes were not appealing and it catered more for a big North Indian group that was staying in the resort although we were from the south. The indian chef was thoughtful enough to prepare Allepey fish curry specially for us to make up.
3. On another occasion, we invited outside guests for lunch. We were informed that there is no buffet as there is less occupancy in the resort and instead you can order ala carte for the same buffet menu. So we went for buffet option to order alacarte and we had to wait after each course 30 mins to get it prepared to the table. The whole lunch lasted 2 and half hours.

I stayed for 3 nights at the Zuri Kumarakom in Jan' last in a Superior Lagoon View room. Spacious room with all amenities. Very comfortable with the balcony opening out to the garden and the lagoon. The bathroom with separate shower and bath tub is very roomy. The landscaping inside the resort is excellent. It is very child friendly. Well spaced out resort with a nice pool spa equipped with jacuzzi sauna and steam bath. Fully equipped Gymnasium. The games room has a huge snooker table. The resort offers a sunset cruise in the vembanad lake. There are cycles for kids and adults to move around the resort which is a very good activity.

The staff are friendly and courteous. Very helpful.

There are 2 restaurants at Zuri. We tried the buffet restaurant Lime tree as we had a full board package. The food is average. Not much of the local flavor is served in the buffet. It mostly caters to foreigners and North Indians. This is one aspect which the management can improve upon. Breakfast and Desserts spread is good. The packages are for full board hence the guests have no option but to have their meals in the resort. Going around to eat at other places cost a lot by cab as everything is located at a distance.

Though I stayed in the Lagoon View room I visited their Pool Villa. Very well done interior and its double the size of the Lagoon View room with a huge pool overlooking the Vembanad lake. It has full privacy. I will visit the resort again to stay in the Pool Villa. Zuri Kumarakom has cottages too. In all 3 category of rooms.

There is a house boat owned by the resort docked in the Vemaband Lake. Its top class. Booking can be done over phone only.

Highly Recommended Resort to stay at Kumarakom.

Room Tip: Go for the Superior Lagoon View rooms rather than Deluxe. The Superior rooms are located in the grou...

Thank you for choosing and staying at The Zuri Kumarakom Resort and Spa.
Happy to know that we met product and service expectation and hope to welcome you back.
We have noted the buffet enhancement required and have implemented a spread, to cater a multi-cultural guest profile.
Our new Lime Tree restaurant a-la-carte option will enhance the choices available with matching wines and imported spirits.

I stayed with my family for 2 nights/3 days at the Zuri in the first week of June. When I was making a plan to visit Kumarakom, I was confused to choose between Zuri and KL. Finally I opted for Zuri after thoroughly studying the rooms and activities offered by both the resorts and the prices offered in both.

Now that I had completed my stay at Zuri, I thought of sharing it with the readers. I had booked for a Lagoon view room. As am an I PREFER member, I was lucky to be upgraded to a cottage . The Zuri cottage is a brilliantly constructed one and provides a heavenly experience. It is supremely spacious,has a scenic balcony facing the lagoon next to it. The bathrooms were like more than what you see in a normal 5 star resort.Overall, the cottage is a family delight....MIND BOGGLING.

The hospitality that you get here is unimaginable. Right from the reception to housekeeping to restaurant, it is awesome. One unique features about zuri is its heartwarming hospitality. My baby was taken care wherever i went inside the resort. The receptionist got a tablet which i had urgently needed for my baby during my stay and she door delivered it within 30 mins..A big thanks for that receptionist..

Food is excellent. The buffet is more than value for money.. But i feel that the a'la'carte at lime restaurant is pricy. Hope the prices offered are reduced slightly. A special thanks to the staffs in the restauarant who were so friendly and always behind us.

Spa is world class. Dont miss the Steam bath and sauna which are complimentary.Battery cars are available at will to take you anywhere inside the resort.

I have to finally admit that Zuri made my holiday very special. It is simply because while checking out, I felt like i had taken my child to THE BEST POSSIBLE resort around my planned budget. Thank you Team Zuri.. Will visit you again for sure.

Room Tip: Select the Zuri cottage facing the lagoon.

Thank you for the valuable feedback and choosing The Zuri Kumarakom as a stay.
The speciality Restaurant - Laguna Bass open for dinner only serves an array of exotic seafood a-la-carte option.
Our chef will prepare as per guest palate and taste.
Suggestion is important for us to enhance the product and services and meet expectation.

Visited zuri for two nights in the pool villa with my wife and it was worth it. The villa was awesome well maintained and pool was cool with a great view to vembanad lake. Loved the privacy, peacefulness of the property. Staffs were great and showcase excellent hospitality. Could see all of them having smiling and wishing face.
The Check-in was swift and painless. Before even i could realize, We were in our accomodation. The check-out was also as efficient as it could be.
The buffet was good, but I expected more of some exotic fishes like pearlspot, prawns etc. Its just a suggestion.

All in all, it was great. Loved the pool villa, the accomodation, the getaway and peacefullness.

Room Tip: Get the pool villa and probably those from 405 onwards as most of them enough trees in between the p...
