This place fulfills the expression,"heaven on earth". The rooms are huts on stilts interspersed with backwater channels. It is on the banks of the Kumarkom lake and hence provides excellent views of sunset. The property is well maintained and has easy access. It has all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay. One can relax with a book and spend time reading lying on the hammock or on the lake banks. The pool on the edge of the lake gives a picturesque view while swimming. The restaurant provides good food. However, the best part is the morning or evening safari by boat in the backwaters. We took the morning safari and hence saw the sunrise. This safari brings one across innumerable varity of birds, ducks. flowers and other fauna. It is a sight worth taking all the effort. It is a refreshing experience and even better for amateur photographers. One can also take advantage of the massage which is available at the resort. Overall, it was an excellent experience.

Room tip: Take rooms closer to the lake for better views.

Visited this place as part of my Kerala trip. While I was entering this place I felt so so amazing. Its surrounded by lush greens, above ground cottages gives a perfect feel and the backwater takes you heart away. Cottages are surrounded by trees, giving it a jungle cottage kind of a feel. BUT.... I wish theses were only things that we expect while on vacation. Like the other KTDC resort I visited at Kovallam, the state of this resort was inline with that "Typical Govt. Propoerty". The thing is.. being a Govt. Property they get to choose the best location, but maintenance & services follows the same attitude, "We don't care". Cottage although was very spacious, but lacked basic cleaning, specially by a "RESORT" standard. Food was above average though, but I expected more. Staff has no interest in giving you any sort of assistance. This property has so much potential and has so much more it can offer. But presently it is not. So, if you are travelling on a romantic ride you have an option to pass it. But if you are travelling with friends on a adventure trip, surely you should go for it.

3) Room cleaning was also not upto the mark
