The property is in an amazing location with backwaters and canals surrounding the cottages. The wooden cottages are neat and tidy with cozy beds and is well maintained. Enjoyed waking up early morning and cycling with the chirping sounds of the birds. We can enjoy the nature at its maximum. Hospitality was good and the staffs are very cooperative. Overall we had a very good experience nd we enjoyed a lot.The visit to the Birds sanctuary was an extra ordinary experience.

Lake view resort. Food is okay and rooms too are simple. 7-8 kms from the boating area and bird sanctuary. The staff servicing is good although no extra favours are given. Overall a nice place to stay. Satisfactory.

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.
