Came here with our cycle kayak your with Kalypso adventures . It is a spacious if dark venue right on the backwaters . The food was fine but it was all a bit dated. They could have done more with the huge rice store in the middle . Very relaxing and a great place to kayak from Neil Rushton

“We had a room that had a covered bathroom. What I didn't like about it was that, although it had a window, it was totally covered in some kind of grille so you couldn't see out. I felt claustrophobic.”
