1) Extremely well-maintained place and beautifully and tastefully decorated 2) Very warm, welcoming, and helpful staff. We had a great time with the friendly staff. 3) The lawn area with the tables overlooking the backwaters is so serene that you can spend hours there peacefully. 4) Although the variety of food is not high, fish, prawns, dal fry, rice (rice-based...

Stayed here for one night on 6th August with my family. Really enjoyed the stay and food. Chef prepared some excellent crab and duck preparation on our request. The service is also very good. Overall a nice small resort with some wonderful people.

Heritage Methanam is neither a home-stay nor a full fledged hotel. It's an old house remodeled to a wannabe resort. The house looks elegant and it is located facing the backwaters. The outdoor dining area, right on the the backwaters is the crowning glory of this property. You can sip a cold one and gaze into the expanse of the...

Whilst staying in a homestay in Kumbalangi I was recommended to eat here. It was a recommendation I'm happy to endorse. The setting by the backwaters was outstanding. The personnel were friendly without being obtrusive, and I very much enjoyed chatting with Sajan, the personable hotel manager. Curiously, paneer dishes weren't available on either night, but the alternatives I chose...

The Methanam is hard to categorise as it doesn't offer the hotel service we had in the rest of India. The house is beautiful with dark wood pillars, staircase, fittings and furniture.

“102 is quite close to the road and can be noisy in the morning. The window shades also let in a lot of light so it's worth hanging something up if you want a lie in”

“Room 107 did not have an ac remote, so the ac was on high at all time, 107 has direct access to the restaurant and poolside 106 and 107 are on the ground floor, 102 and 103 are upstairs, better if you really want your privacy, although the view from the windows out to the bay are gorgeous.”
