I stayed as a solo female traveler for a few days at this property, and had dinner at both their restaurants.
I didn't manage to take part in the activities at the resort, because I was actually in Kerala to attend a friend's wedding, but the service at this property was impeccable.
The boat ride in added a beautiful backwater feel to this, and the welcome coconut was lovely as well. (I hoped it would be chilled, but oh well. It was still refreshing after a long journey.) I checked in to my room, which was half of a two-story traditional house, and spent some time unpacking and exploring the room and the property. The lake next to the resort was serene, and it really let me relax into the atmosphere there.
The evening cocktail and jackfruit chips I had at the poolside bar were delicious as well. The kicker of the evening would be the seafood dinner I had at the lakeside grill. Delightfully seasoned with Indian spices, this was the best dinner I had during my stay in Kerala.
The staff were extremely helpful, as I had to put on a lehenga, and they helped to arrange my sash so that it stayed in place and was manageable throughout my friend's wedding. The spa treatments there were heavenly - even though it was priced a little higher than what you would pay for outside the resort, but the high level of service was what distinguished them from the rest. I'd definitely recommend that you try out the Ayurveda treatments here!
