Fodor's Review

In the heritage section of this beautiful, lush 25-acre lakefront property, the palatial traditional villas, reassembled from old houses, are set around a network of canals and lawns dotted with long black Kerala canoes filled with plants. Each villa is outfitted with ornately carved wooden ceilings, colorful mythological murals, and enormous garden bathrooms with Jacuzzis. The meandering pool villas are a more modern take on the backwater lifestyle; you can step from

your room directly into the curving, amoeba-like swimming pool. You can also relax by a separate lakefront pool, designed so that the far edge seems to magically merge with Vembanad Lake, or in the spacious ayurvedic center.

understated luxury

This was a hotel I was longing to visit after many recommendations from other travellers. I had my own villa with a divine king bed, table with chairs, dressing table & lots of windows! also, a wonderful outdoor bathroom with a laundry line which was very useful! they didn't miss a trick as even the tv was not only flatscreen with all the channels but also in HD!! The 2 restaurants are both excellent & they let you know what is dairy free or wheat

free & very conscious of food allergies & the local cuisine is just sensational in every way!! fortunately they have a small fitness centre on site to try to work off some calories! they also have the swimming pool that winds around the villas which is extraordinary & great fun! the infinity pool is also lovely. It is a great place to relax or recover from a hectic lifestyle & the spa is very nice as well.
