Place is very far from the main road, not a proper road.. The ride inside was very bumpy.. The resort was nice and serene, but too slow for our liking... I would recomend this place for a honeymoon for sure, as noone to disturb you, but for a family outing, I would not recommend it.. Even the guys at the restaurant had no clue about the dishes on the menu card..

Room Tip: Try and avoid..

Stayed in this hotel for 1 day, and thankfully it was not more than that.

The ambience and the look at the resort looks good at first sight but very soon the guest is jolted to reality by the totally un co-operative service staff and the lack of basic amenities.

The resort is on an island which means that you need a ferry to take u from the outside world to the resort. Most of the times the person operating the ferry is not around and everytime we wanted to go out (or even to the resort restaurant to have food) we had to wait for atleast 15 minutes for the boatman to arrive.

The location of the resort is such that there is absolutely nothing apart from a few village homes and villagers around the resort. The resort does not have a gym, no indoor games, no internet connectivity.. in short the resort resembles a jail where there is absolutely nothing to do inside as well as outside the resort.

The food is also pathetic, and the guest still ends up with no choice but to have the same as there are no hotels anywhere near the resort.

My husband and I stayed for one night in one of the bungalows in this hotel for one night in February 2011 at the end of a group tour of the region. The resort is set in a picture-perfect location in the Keralan backwaters surrounded by coconut palms, each bungalow looking out directy onto the water. The bungalows are actually set on a tiny island separated from the reception and restaurant by a channel of water and there is a small punt-boat manned by one of the hotel staff to take you across - this has a certain novelty charm and adds to the laid-back atmosphere, although not always convenient if you leave something in your room and have to nip back over the water to get it!

The location is great for getting away from it all as it is quite a way from the nearest town - a perfect place for us to relax for a day/night after a trekking holiday but some people may get restless after a few days. We spent our time relaxing on our large shady verandah watching the abundant birdlife and reading, but it's also worth having a stroll into the village itself to see local village life (in particular, the production by hand of the coir rope made from coconut fibre, a fascinating process), and there's a small town 15-20 minutes' walk away. Apparently it is possible to swim/canoe in the water at the hotel but being nervous of creepy-crawlies we'd seen in the region we didn't fancy this much (this is no reflection on the cleanliness of the hotel though)!

Rooms were clean and spacious, air-con was a little temperamental and the shower drainage in the bathroom was poor and led to a little flooding, but pretty good on the whole - and there was hot water, which is not always the case in India. The only downside really is the service in the restaurant, which is incredibly slow (even by India standards) - staff are very inexperienced and food takes a long time to arrive if ordering a la carte (even after we'd taken the precaution of ringing our order through to reception 2 hours in advance, as advised by our tour leader). However, when it did come, the food was very tasty. Given the resort layout (accommodation on a different island to the restaurant), don't expect room service.

Stayed here as part of a tour. It is off the beaten track and frankly a bit basic, but with a certain charm (you need to get a boat to reception and the restaurant). It is geared to Indian honeymoon couples and tour groups.

We enjoyed our buffet meal in the evening which was very good indeed.

Overall it was fine, and we were definitely close to nature, but we would not want to have stayed more than one night.

Great experience. Do not go if you are expecting great service. It is a place where you want to get away from maddining crowd be on your own, where you do not want intrusion to your privacy and at the same time get usual service at reasonable pace. we enjoyed thoroughly.
