My wife and I headed for Ramada just after wedding reception and intended to stay there for 2 days, as I had to resume work soon. But my boss had to wait for a couple more days to see his favourite man back, as we decided to extend our stay at Ramada. We were made to feel special and we truly enjoyed our "Just Married" Phase. We loved the food, the swimming pool, the long night walks, our rooms were beautiful and lastly the view at dawn with the lake view has truly majestic. We plan to get back there soon. Great work, Ramada Kochi.

Room Tip: Please be prepared to extend your stay at Ramada.

The hotel feels like heaven especially the setting of the site. It feels like a place out of earth. The scenic views of the backwaters and the long linear pool is excellent. The sea facing rooms are awesome with the automation in the room adding to the comfort.

There are very few words to describe such an amazing resort so close to city. The resort is set at the bank of Vembanadu Lake and is very spacious. The cottages are designed in such a way that almost all of them overlook the lake. Nothing can be more soothing than having a cup of tea in your balcony and watching a fisherman in the lake with your friends. Uniquely designed is the swimming pool which runs all across the lake bank. The resort has a huge hall for conducting meets and events and also has facility for conducting open air dinner buffet. Activity Center can be better than the existing one. Some of the games were not working. And more choices can be placed like foosball table. Overall, a perfect place to have your meeting and events.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a lake view room

My wife and I spent the weekend at this resort. Both of us enjoyed our stay. The resort is set up beautifully. The lake and pool view rooms are the best and the view is breathtaking. Cannot comment on the other rooms. Our room was large, clean and had all the amenities. The pool is large and laid out well. The food is excellent and staff friendly and efficient. We did not try the spa and disco so cannot comment on this. I would rate this as the best resort in Cochin. Close to the city yet so quiet and beautiful.

There is scope to improve the exterior maintenance.

The scenery is excellent. The hotel is 3 star. But charges are more than a 5 star and the services are worse than a 2 star. Not upto the standards maintained by Ramda chain of hotels seen elsewhere. Could

see lack of professionalism in services. The pool is excellent and huge in size. pool side bar is not worth. The restaurant and food was reasonably good. Guests with exposure to other Indian Metros and abroad would dislike service factor and lack of professionalism.
I woke up at 5.00 am in the morning just to enjoy the serenity and enjoyed upto 6.30 am and went back to bed.
Would recommend to those who love natural beauty without regretting about the expenses and do not want any other services except food..

Room Tip: never think about cost and service

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Feel the silence of the shores Ramada Resort is a poem. Written on the banks of a tranquil lake. You find the island of silence just 17 km from Kochi, Kerala's metropolis, and 2 km from a busy national highway. The Kumbalam backwaters is part of the famed Vembanad Lake. As the gates open, a sudden change in landscape, a riot of greenery, and silence, greet you. A harmonious mix of exhibitive desert trees and the natural flora of Kerala instil in you the same feeling you experience while watching your child take its first steps: excitement! Pass through the front office that exudes the Keralan hospitality, laced with the professionalism of Ramada, and walk into one of those 24 pool-facing villas. The long walk itself is a refreshing change, compared with boxing oneself into the usual elevator. The greenery soothes the nerves of even a weary traveller. You have started experiencing the space. And silence. Oh! Its space everywhere. Spread across 7 acres of land, Ramada Resort has only 42 living spaces. You would perhaps enjoy the largest per capita space on a resort in Kerala! Before stepping into your room, you find the ground floor is just floor, and not a room! Your kids may want to stay back and play. Let them, and you allow yourself into your cottage. In the super luxury of the room, you will come across the best amenities. Open the glass door and step into the balcony. The meandering pool stretches itself to 110 metres in front of you. Its waters almost touch the lake, which touches the eastern horizon for sure. The enormous expanse of the backwater, lined with coconut trees, will make you feel the thrill of floating freely on a ship's deck, a la Jack and Rose. It's a play of water, mixed with serenity. You feel engulfed by infinity. Almost. In the morning, the sun rising from across the waters will greet you on the balcony. You may feel like doing a sun-salutation, the most beneficial yoga posture. The fisherman in his canoe rowing against the myriad hues of morning sun will be a picture postcard scene that reminds you of the painting competition in your school days. In the evening, the reflections of the setting sun on the serene waters would take you to the empire of silence. The water, layers and layers of it, may tempt you to try some water therapy. Walk into the spa, Kerala's largest. It offers more than 25 varieties of herbal and western massages. Treat yourself to foot reflexology and leave the seat with every organ in your body relaxed. Or try Thai massage. Or Balinese. Treat your senses to the aroma of freshly fried seafood. With your stomach directing you towards the restaurant, the turn in the corridor next to it opens up suddenly into an empty expanse of greenery. The deja vu feeling of having one's own extra space suddenly overpowers the unassuming traveller. It takes some time to adjust to this heavenly feeling and finally when lunch is served, you realise even time has no boundaries in this part of the world and stands still. ... more   less
