                We had a very nice stay at the Fragrant Nature Resort. The staff was superb. We particularly enjoyed getting to know the chef Saurab, who is an excellent cook. Dani, who waited on us was charming and very helpful. She is an outstanding employee. Finally, Jills at the front desk was efficient and very good communicator. We enjoyed our stay.

                We had an excellent stay at the resort. It is at a beautiful location in the backwaters which is easily accessible from airport. The resort staff is very responsive and wonderful to talk to. Their food is outstanding and so are the varieties that they offer. If you want to relax and be away from all the worldly affairs and chaos, this is the place to be.

                Beautiful setting and grounds
                When I went to stay the hotel was almost empty. There was a very nice German woman there with me, and I enjoyed a couple of meals with her, but otherwise I interacted with no other guests. Once I got used to the idea of being alone, I found it very peaceful (but initially it was disconcerting). The rooms and grounds are well maintained, and the service is very helpful and accommodating. I got some good treatments from the spa, but unfortunately when the therapist was sick one day, they had no alternate person to give me my treatment, so I missed one out of the only 4 days I was staying. The food was good, but somewhat limited menu. I went to the arranged yoga class with a local priest from an ashram. I was very nice and very relaxing. the highlight for me were two boat rides. The boatman was very pleasant and the scenery was beautiful( although on the first boat ride another staff member came on board, argued with the boatman, then had a loud conversation on his phone until I asked him to be quiet...)

                Spa, rooms, location
                The hotel itself is gorgeous and the setting on the backwaters is perfect. Grounds are kept impeccably landscaped. Couple of drawbacks: (1) Food is very mediocre and a disappointment for such a lovely place, not to mention the prices they are charge. They are trying to do north indian cuisine in s. India, which I fail to understand. The kitchen porter, sharad, is a brilliant cook, because when he was our instructor in a local kerala kitchen, and all the food at the class was locally based and delicious. Surely they can replicate that in the restaurant kitchen. (2) These backwaters for some reason are very humid compared to the ones up north. There was virtually no breeze from them for the 3 days we were there in mid-November. The ayurvedic massage is unbelievable. Pricier than outside but if you are strapped for time and can't get out of the resort, then it's absolutely worth it. If you can get a massage elsewhere in Kerala, then go ahead, but otherwise definitely try the spa here. Staff is service-oriented, rooms are kept clean.

                Staff and Facilities
                from the moment we arrived to our sad farewell 6 nights later, we had an excellent stay. everyone,from management to wait and cleaning staff were extremely helpful and friendly. the resort is in a secluded area on the backwaters, approx. 40 minutes by car from kollam. they have a new 4wd to take you anyone you need to go in comfort - which is excellent as many of the nearby roads are not tarred and very rough. if you are looking for some downtime whilst in india, and to relax in a quality environment, then fragrant is the place. we will definately be staying there again - the team felt like family by the end of our stay and the local villagers were equally lovely and friendly.
