Coconut Lagoon - CGH Earth is a 5-star resort situated on the banks of the scenic Vembanad Lake in Kumarakom. It is 78 kms from the Cochin International Airport, a 10 minute boat ride from Kavanattinkara in Kottayam or a 25 minute boat ride from the Puthenangadi boat landing (45 km drive from Cochin).
A stunning backwater destination, Coconut Lagoon - CGH Earth reflects the culture and traditions of the Kuttanad region with old Kerala homes constructed in the traditional ‘tharavadu’ style. The rooms offer scenic views of the lake and gardens and have open-air bathrooms. Here, guests can get a taste of the local cuisine – from the fresh catch of the day at Vembanad Grill, to open-air dining at Aymanam Restaurant, to a rustic ambience at multi-cuisine restaurant Ettukettu. Freshly picked ingredients from the organic farm can be prepared by chefs with a cooking demonstration.
The lake is home to an abundance of nature life. Explore its bio-diversity on guided nature walks, or by strolling through the butterfly garden. Experience life on the backwaters with a canoe ride, and delve into Kerala’s unique culture with performances of traditional art forms such as ‘Kalaripayattu’ and ‘Mohiniyattam’. Be rejuvenated with personalized treatments at the Ayurveda centre.

Fantastic wedding anniversary gift for my parents”
I booked this place for my parents' 30th wedding anniversary. I had let the staff know that the booking was for my parents and they were coming for their anniversary. The staff went out of their way to make sure my parents had a great time - they also arranged for a a special cake and cocktails for my parents (even without me having requested for that). They were flexible and allowed my parents to check-in early. My parents had a wonderful and relaxed time there and were very well taken care of. My parents loved it so much that, my husband and I are planning on going there for our anniversary.
This place is more of an ecosystem than a resort which is why it is unique and special from other places in this price range. Staff members were polite and friendly. The buffet was exotic, covered all Kerala cuisines. Sunset boat cruise was also complimentary. The rooms were free from mosquitoes. none of the chairs in rooms, dining area, reception etc had cushion. It was a discomfort for people with back pain and elderly. During check out, they tried to charge us 170 for a packet of snacks from mini bar which we did not take and was made to wait for more than 15 minutes due to the same. A guest who pays 60k for booking, will not refuse to pay 170 for a snack if they had actually taken it. My husband went for their ayurdeva pain relief massage and was extremely dissatisfied with the experience. They should employ some experienced therapists. Apart from the wasted money for this massage, we liked everything about this place and would certainly love to visit once again!
Remote and isolated. Most interesting views are of the boats along the river as you come in. Evening Boat ride was disappointing as it just goes out on the lake with nothing really to see, the land is so far away. There was a lovely nature talk about the local ecology as we were out on the boat. Staff is very nice and the food was some of the best I had in south India. Great breakfast buffet.
Coconut Lagoon - A Paradise in Kumarakom”
We stayed as a couple from May 2nd to My 5th. This is beautiful resort located by Lake Vembanad. The welcome itself has a theatrical element and you have to travel to the resort by a boat. The staff is wonderful and special shout out to Elby. Also Asha and Roy. The food was good but could have been better - specifically the breakfast. Service is excellent and overall I would love to come back. Thanks Raj
very nice view, quiet, serene, very good food and amazing staff”
loved it , will go again every year.
Amazing Location and property”
Great location with property. Service was ok with thr staff being cooperative but not very professional. However, one thing which did not go very well with me was that they charged me for one extra person for one of my kids as she was above 5 years, even though i did not ask for any extra bed. This was a first for me as where ever i travel i have never been charged for a 7year old kid as an extra.
Not worth it”
With all the motors and mechanical noise, not a moment of peace.
Pros... Excellent food Good ambience Concept of place s good Cons... No tv in room Limited entertainment Didn't help in checking out
A rewarding relaxing experience.
Village feel with modern facilities!”
Highly recommended. ”
Excellent conservation exerience”
Our experience at Coconut Lagoon was outstanding. Wake up to complimentary martial arts or yoga classes in the most beautiful setting imaginable. Nice spa, gorgeous pool, and good food. Don't miss the seafood grill restaurant for dinner with lobster by the kilo; best dinner we had in Kerala. Complimentary or reasonably priced activities including sunset cruise and backwater cruise with a stop at the drivers rural home. Cottages a bit sparse and dark but not a problem as each has a lovely porch and no need to stay inside for long.
pleasant with picture perfect location.”
extremely pleasant. even young kids wanted to extend it by a day.
Excellent and spontaneous staff ”
Excellent,caring and well attentive staff who made our stay pleasant,moreover the lake frontage and the beautiful garden gave us lots of fresh air and stunning views and to add it all mild rains multiplied the atmosphere with calmness and serinity. thank you staff of coconut lagoon for the lovely birthday cake and for the excellent fish.made my day all the more special.....thank you all :))
Simply wonderful. rooms ervice for morning tea would be nice specially since there was no shortage of staff!
A great romantic escape from the fast world”
This was our honeymoon and we went during the month of June 2013. The best part of the resort is the entry through the back waters and the warm reception. The room which we stayed was the heritage mansiona nd it was truely done in a very detailed way keeping in mind the old tharavadus of kerala. The lighting and the extensive use of the wood add to the ambience. Another attraction we really enjoyed was the open bathroom which was attached to the property. That is a really great addition to this wonderful property. Since the room is not with a TV you are forced to stay outside during the daytime and let me say that, it was great to explore the property. There was absolutely no noise and it was hard to hear the honks once we were coming out after the vacation. The concept of not using plastic any where in the propert was really great. For me this was a really great vacation and looking forward to visit there onece more soon.
didn't. enjoy my stay. poor value for money. ”
Excellent location and place with best service.”
We enjoyed our short stay. We liked the open air bathroom and the toilet.
