“Comfortable stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2014

From Cochin it took four hours drive to reach this Royal Riviera resort in Kumarakom.Passing through the paddy fields,endless coconut trees lining both the side of the road is a feast for the eyes.The hotel is at the bank of the backwater. Well maintained garden welcomes you. They have a decent clean swimming pool and backwater for paddle boats in their own area. Lots of indoor activities for youngsters.The rooms are clean very big with a drawing room and bedroom. The oil massaging was wonderful. The food was good. Mushroom with vegetable curry was superb! The staffs are really helpful, immediately attending the guests.In our eight days trip from Cochin to Trivandrum we stayed in five different hotels.This one is very comfortable for staying.
We took a very long walk along the bank of the backwater, we did not take any boat ride.
We reserved it for the boat house stay in the vembanad lake at alleppey.Although there is a birds sanctuary, but I would not recommend for the visitors.This place is highly recommended for relaxing, getting oil massaging,swimming and enjoying the nature.It's worth for the price you pay.

Room Tip: We were at the top floor left side facing the back water.

the royal definitely does not live up to its name, the rooms are big but not clean, there was a lizard in our room and the food is pathetic. the hotel offers free boating withing their premises but the location is probably the worst in kumarakom, there are no attractions around the hotel and the only place to visit is the bird sanctuary where you wont be able to see any birds. all in all the hotel and kumarakom is a waste of time.

Good hotel to stay, I with my wife stayed for one night on 8th Jan, 2014. Room was nice and clean, staff was excellent. Hotel has its own indoor activities like boating, swimming, carrom, table tennis ensures that you are not bored. restaurant food was also good, Breakfast was ok. Will recommend this hotel if you are visiting kerela. Don't go for shikara ride or sunset view visit if you are planning to go for Houseboat as same view and experience is available in houseboat as well.

Stayed here for one night. A well done property with excellent rooms and good room service. However, the restaurant had limited options to offer. The gardern and lawn areas were beautifully maintained and overall a very neat and clean place. If one look at the type of rooms and services offered, cost wise it was a complete value for money. Not too expensive but offered great facilities!

Drive to the hotel itself is very beautiful...paddy fields, small bridges, cococut palms, cool breeze kissing your cheeks.....very refreshing...and then the hotel....just like my dream home. Small lake within with variety of fishes, swiming pool, play area with carrom etc, poultry section with very unique breeds, sufficient place for pets, lawn, lake tributaries, paddy fields, ideal view of sunrise......phew.........simply magnificent...The hotel is located inside and road is bumpy but u will just forget about it on enterng the hotel...
Staff is very cordial...food had good variety and option of different cuisines...rooms are well designed and spacious, i think all the rooms have a balcony.... they have houseboat facility as well so if u miss ur chance at alleppey again u have an option to exp. the back waters...
Very comforting stay one of the best options to relax...

Room Tip: Room facing the swimming pool and conference building on one side and lake trubutary is ideal. It wi...

I visited with my family to the backwater of Kerala and stayed in this hotel. The ambience of the hotel was excellent and surrounded by backwater. The food was good, hotel staff was efficient and courteous, rooms are spacious and well maintained.

Had stay for one night and it was awesome.The hotel is located inside and the road is bit rough but the location is awesome.Its right opp the backwater lake.Rooms are big and clean.Its divided as an studio.both drawing room and bedroom has LCD tv and ac with small refrigerator.it also has small balcony which faces fields.Coming to food..it though not big menu but carters most of cuisine.Taste is also good.One can enjoy buffet dinner/lunch which is reasonable.Right from manager and staff everyone is courteous and helpful.Children can have lots of activities like playing indoor outdoor games.it also has small pond where one can do boating.They also of spa which offers traditional Kerela massage and its amazing.overall this place is family friendly and relaxing.Highly recommended for comfort stay.
