Clueless yet arrogant staff
This was my third visit here but probably the last. The standards have dropped so low and I think the staff are to be blamed! The rooms were not dusted and not maintained well, as it used to be. In addition, the so-called rooms they provide for the drivers to stay, are so filthy and downtrodden, with broken beds and they wouldn't even provide mattresses or pillows or bed covers. Downright inhuman to expect people to stay there. And not even apologetic about it. Rather making mocking faces at each other when we did complain. I would definitely not recommend this place. In comparison, I would choose Zuri at kumarakom, which had given excellent service during my previous visit!

Repeatedly rated India's top resort... Can see why
Fantastic friendly staff, brilliant food, jacuzzi pool in bathroom!
This resort truly lives up to its slogan... "Perhaps the only paradise on earth". The location is superb with beautiful resort facilities including rooms with jacuzzi pools in the bathroom. Comfortable, clean and well finished rooms. Two fantastic restaurants with a wide selection. Great breakfast selection with variety of Indian and continental foods. We spent one night on the resorts housebout which again was wonderful with similarly high food standards which complimented the beautiful scenery of the backwaters. We would highly recommend the resort and its houseboat to everyone, especially couples as it's very romantic.
