Very good ....beautifully well kept.....except the FOOD”
I found the place excellent...except a few things..the food was not hyginic also the display was very disapointing...as we were to eat jain food i saw that the veg and non veg food were displayed together which put us offf while eating..second that the manderine pool villas were out of this world but the next day we stayed at the lake view heritage villas which i thought needed renovation and is little more in price.i have traveled around the world and found your price a little hight but if the food all food including the Hi tea...sorry to say was not at all setifactory in taste n in hygine ,if it would have been clean n tasty the price would have been worth paying but the FOOD SECTION was very disapointing. I will still recommend it to others for your service and very friendly atmosphere and always smiling and welcoming staff.
Beautiful property ”
Heaven on earth..
Lovely stay! ”
Lovely property, very gorgeous grounds with a beautiful lake view! The room (garden view luxury pavilion) was spacious, adequately clean with comfy big bed. The jacuzzi looked awesome but we didn’t end up using it as when we attempted we found out it could only be filled with cold water and also I think it hadnt bern used in sometime as when the staff turned on the jets, several dead bugs/moths came out with the water. The infinity pool is fantastic, though food & drink service at the pool was quite slow. However room service & house keeping was super quick and efficient. Kids loved the complimentary fishing, weaving & pottery activities. Spa was great, definitely worth getting a treatment. The complimentary sunset cruise was great and the live music was really pleasant. Overall the staff through out the hotel were really lovely, responsive & kind.
The resort was Excellent”
I loved every single bit of it. The Activities, the greenery and the boat ride.
Excellent place to relax and rejuvenate. ”
Excellent property, staff and superb hospitality. Superbly managed property and excellent location with a view. Extra points for great staff.
Exceptional staff and relaxing atmosphere”
Beautifully landscaped resort with a serene vibe. Excellent food. But the best part is their staff. The most attentive and caring staff I have met of any resort globally. Especially Mukesh at the front desk , guest services Priya. And Suraji in restaurant. They threw the best New Year’s Eve party. The restuarant staff all speak perfect English and were very attentive. The only con was the spa. Most of the menu for ayurveda treatments were not available. Staff there seemed disinterested and the place felt like a factory. On the last day we went to the Main Street for an Ayurveda massage. The facilities were very basic but the massage was better at one quarter the price.
The staff and hospitality are ohenomenal. They go out of their way. A perfect relaxing holiday. ”
The staff and service stood out. The pool and gym have room for improvement. The gym specially.
Trip to backwaters”
The resort made our stay memorable in everyway. We atayed at meandering pool villa and it was totally worth it. The pool was great and close to view of backwater. The grounds of thw resort were wonderful and had nice sitouts and views of the lake. The food was excellent and homely. And the staff took great care to accomidate the needs of our toddler that made this stay extra special. Do not miss the sunset cruise and shikara ride in baxkwaters
It's a highly expensive resort considering the facilities provided which at max are of 3* resort”
Pros is location, courteous staff.. Cons.. There were lizards in room.. water provided is not even mineral water. In room dining food quantity is not standard, breakfast variety is very very limited, absolutely no north indian breakfast options, mattress is of very poor quality, tea coffee maker has no variety or branded options with not even simple green tea.. For the cost the facilities need to be increased drastically.. location cannot be anything. Also none of the lake view villas had a proper lake view as suggested in the pictures..
Our overall experince was superbb... the property was lovely.. the staff was amazing very friendly, prompt at services. Facilities n amenities aere upto te mark. The extra little things in the package were attractive like sunset cruise n teatime in the garden, etc etc. Among the staff, Agni, johnie, n the tea coffee guy n many more really won our heart. And in the spa departmnt Dr Nitin was very helpful .. i wish him all the very best in his future. Its worth coming again. And i have already spread word of mouth to my friends and known ones to deftnly visit your property

Superb & a fantastic place”
Kumarakom lake resort is a fabulous place to stay in. The staff is so prompt, courteous & helpful. On the day of our checkout we had to leave pretty early. They packed breakfast for us as well as cutlery + juice + fruits. Every detail was taken care of which is what we loved about this place. The sweet guy who made awesome south indian coffee for us at hi-tea or the guy who taught us fishing and took some awesome Pics, or the sweet lady who taught the kids weaving. It's a seven star place with a ten star staff!!:)
Great place great people ...Only issue I had was at the bar . Good tables r reserved for the WHITE Folks... I had to ask for a manager to sit where I wanted to drink a 450 Rs beer...lol
Best holiday resort Kerala”
Treated like royalty !
Excellent location and great service”
The food is great and the staff very courteous
Serene beautiful setting, great staff. The locales are stunning.
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!
Serene place ”
Its a nice property good fun for kids nd adults alike. However it was fully occupied at our time of visit and thought the staff was not able to handle the guests.
The staff and service is amazing. The resort has everything you need for a peaceful relaxing vacation.
