A four star resort that provides you the best in every detail and drives you get swayed off by the enchantment of the beautiful lake. You would be literally rippled out into the beauty and exuberance of the lake. The rooms, balconies, and even the wash rooms are worth mentioning. They have swimming pools, soothing relaxation spots within the compound...

Backwater ripples brings a array if world class cuisines that is mouth watering to everyone. They are the best in KOTTAYAM for hosting weddings and receptions. The rooms and ambience are also nice. The food makes this place a par above the rest in KOTTAYAM. So be here for the wonderful eateries and a simple stay

A nice place to relax in the back water ambiance. Plenty of space to roam around. The rooms are spacious and bath rooms are well maintained. Privacy is little bit compromised. The food and services are little expensive. If you are ready for a walk, you can enjoy traditional food and delicacies at local hotels which are damn cheap. While...

We had spent our honeymoon night here. The food is amongst the best in the vicinity with especially the breakfast spread. Rooms are also done well with ample space. Not sure if there is sufficient activity to keep one occupied beyond 3 days here.
