I have visited this resort many times , located around 30km away from cochin . Good point is that this place not crowed like kumarakam . All the rooms are floating on the water where you get feelings of a house boat !food was average as well the service .service can be improved , may be lack of professional staff . The location is superb and the view .

They were just 2 things about this place that left me extremely impressed.
First was the boat ride that takes you to the island.
Second was that it was very very quiet there.

It was a day outing with a group of friends. So, I have no tips about the rooms' selection. There was enough open space to have some outdoor games.

The property is beautiful and clean. Food is again average and so is the service. Not too impressed honestly.

We were a party of 6 adults booked in for a day.The website photos are very misleading.This place must be avoided. Its very badly maintained with awful food, indifferent service, decrepit and general neglect.One of our party was disabled and a wheel-chair was not available but to their credit they mustered enough manpower to carry her on a chair! The short house boat trip was the only redeeming feature of the stay.

I stayed here earlier this month and am extremely thankful we were only there for one night. I don't expect places in India to be as nice as in the U.S., but this was a bizarre place by any set of standards. In theory, an island hotel in the backwaters is a wonderful idea, and maybe it looked nice once, but when we were there, this place felt like a rundown motel, NOT a resort. A shabby-looking little boat that will make you question the safety of your belongings brought us to the "island" which only 3 other families were staying on (of 19, I believe.) There is no internet-- we couldn't even use their computer in the reception area because the person there was nowhere to be found -- and no separate showers/tubs in the bathrooms. Also, we found a dead cockroach in the bathroom when we got there, which sounds standard for this place based on other reviews. The restaurant was essentially closed (we walked in and had to say "hello" multiple times before someone showed up) since there were so few people staying there, so we got room service for most meals and the food was bland. Everything about this place looked rickety, shabby and poorly maintained. However, the houseboat tour we took of the backwaters here was excellent, so they have that going for them. Makemytrip must get some crazy commission for booking people here.
