The first thing that touched us was that the young lady at the reception helped our mother (who has trouble walking) to the cottage. The ambience of the cottage is simple yet relaxing and homely. It made us feel extremely connected to...

I had lots of misgivings about the place after reading a whole bunch of reviews that were rather mixed. But spent 4 nights/5 days there with about 5 other friends and a few day visitors who lived in the area and at the end, it turned out to be a rather relaxing and enjoyable stay. The plusses: 1. The actual...

The resort is simply stunning - the grass/leaves a grand green & brown, the air perfectly pure, the cottages clean & homely adjacent to the lake with beautiful blue waters.

The location is good and that's about it, the food is pathetic, and so expensive, the manager first quoted a tarrif which he doubled at the time of payment, breakfast is not complimentary unlike all the other hotels in Kerala, check your bills very carefully, you will find several mistakes leading your bill more expensive, check all the other hotels...
