Found this place after spending several days online. After reading the reviews and looking at the pictures I was not convinced. but once we visited the whole experience was satisfying.The staff were very friendly and helpful. I liked the privacy most since its a private island with no other distraction. They provided welcome drink .Kids really enjoyed the pedal boats and canoe.
Once again this is a hidden gem for family's and couples.

A small set up. We were made to buy our own drinks and snacks for the boat trip as there were no outlets/shops enroute the boat ruise. The mangrove does not have its own restaurant. We ran out of supplies and there was none available at the spot. The resort is misleading, it was only a shack. Minmum they can do is to offer some welcome drink and keep some snacks and soft drinks at the shack. They should keep some milk for tea etc. The lagoon is smaller than a pond and was a let down. They charged 6500 for the trip which was mighty steep for the bad experience we got.

Thank you Mr.Saini for your comments towards Mangrove island.. we tried our best for the service which you people enjoyed in our island .

First of all, ours is a Natural 2.5 acres island with cottage, dining facility, and kitchen. we also providing pedal boats, canoeing, house boats etc...The amount we charged Rs.6500 is included House boat cruise, Food and tea, cottage and leisure activities for all 8 people...which is not mentioned in your review..we hope its very reasonable for the entire family..

usually, any type of "drinks", snacks will not be allowed in the house boat cruise as its affects the safety matters...As per the tourist requirements, we provide any type of natural foods and beverages.

Thank you once again for the visit ,

bye..

We visited Mangrove Island Village last year with my family. It was a great place for water activities and seafood. Kids had a great time playing in the lake with pedal boats and canoe. The lunch was excellent and tasty. The boat ride through the backwaters was very relaxing ! Overall it was an amazing experience with excellent price. The staff was friendly and nice. I highly recommend this place for a family day trip or for a college reunion.
