Fodor's Expert Review The Grove

New Nazareth Rd., Kumarakom, Kerala, India

This sleek and modern resort, right on Vembanad Lake, makes no attempt to create typical Kerala ambience though it does have charm of its own. The airy, somwhat sparse-looking hotel blocks, with red tile roofing, are built around a central infinity pool and face the water. Rooms are neat and quite large. They have shiny white-tile floors and pristine white and cream furnishings and their own sitout (patio) facing the lake. The resort lacks a spa but does have a health club and a bar.
