Kumarakom Lake Resort Kumarakom - Food, drink and entertainment Thattukada - Traditional Tea Shop
A traditional teashop recreated at Kumarakom Lake Resort in its original, rustic splendour. The boiling vessel that constantly spews aromatic steam, the cluster of garden fresh bananas that hang by coir ropes, the open frying pan, the aroma of freshly fried local snacks, the easy camaraderie.Open every evening, the Thattukada is an inviting place to soak in the resort's ambience. To start a conversation, sip a cup of tea, keep hunger at bay, exchange pleasantries, and relish a bit of Kerala you'll cherish for a long time to come.
Kumarakom Lake Resort Kumarakom - Food, drink and entertainment Ettukettu-The Specialty Restaurant
Ettukettu, the multi-cuisine, 115-seat restaurant owns the place of pride at Kumarakom Lake Resort. A princely eight-sided mansion with 2 central courtyards, the Ettukettu bespeaks of the grandeur of yesteryear Kerala's regal architecture.Set in the midst of the resort, the Continental, Chinese, Mughlai, North Indian and traditional Kerala culinary delicacies at the Ettukettu are a gourmet's delight, but the speciality to look forward to, is ethnic Kerala cooking. The fresh catch of the day, rich coconuts and a slew of fragrant spices lend the cuisine its very own flavour. Specialties served include Syrian Christian Duck Roast, Duck Curry, Karimeen Pollichathu, Karimeen Mappas, soft spongy rice bread called Appam, Thamarappam, Idiappams (string-hoppers), etc. besides tropical fruits, vegetables and cereals.

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.

Fantastic.... Refreshing and relaxing stay

The resort is located in one of the most beautiful locations in the world. The staff had been very courteous, polite and always willing to help. The food at Ettukettu Restaurant was greatly delicious.
The stay was very pleasant. Our reservation was handled well and we had a very smooth check in. The Heritage Villa with the private swimming pool had been very convenient and our young kids had lots of fun. They were kept busy by the hotel team with the pot making and mat weaving activities. Other games and fishing opportunity were delightful for the kids. The tea at Thattukada is one that should not be missed. We had been privileged to have a great view of the sunset during the evening cruise although it was the monsoon season in Kerala. The food at Ettukettu and the cultural program along with it is very interesting. Overall, we had a great time and returned with a refreshed body and mind. The stay was very relaxful and our kids insisted to return back to the resort some time soon.

Truly a Paradise on Earth

Room, food & their staff & service.
Truly memorable stay at the resort. The room was big & spacious, pvt jacuzzi was the highlight . Food was very good, whether in room dining or at the restaurant. Their staff was excellent, they just make u feel at home n look after. One of the best resorts if you want to relax n get away from your busy n stressful life. 5 ***** the only negative point there's no free wifi. But not a big deal if u don't need it. If u wanna go Kumarakom then u must stay at this resort.

Excellent atmosphere

Villas, lake, nature
Location of the Resort is excellent area. The view from the room of surrounding area with canals and Kumarakom lake is mind blowing. Expect more activities from the resort side. Food qualities is so so... need to improve. There should be bar facility near the pool side. In overall .... i will say ... It is a Superb Resort
