For people who have visited Kerala, the back waters are synonymous with Kumarakom and the great properties there. However the Raviz in Kollam does it differently and just as well!

Superbly located and painstakingly built this is a great place for a long weekend! The backwaters are as usual stunning and there are large amount of opportunities to absorb the serenity of the place. The hotel lobby and the adjoining balconies maximise the experience of ' getting away from the rat race of the commercial world'. The hotel staff go out of the way to make you feel welcome and comfortable.

My only unsolicited advice is for a rethinking of the menu. Kerala has a huge range of traditional food given it's diversity of cultures and religions. There is a very large scope to introduce the traditional cooking of the Syrian Christian, the Muslim cooking of North Kerala, the Nair cooking etc. Also, the bar needs an upgrade...better wines and liquor!

However let not the last para in any way reduce my recommendation that this is a great place for a stop on a Kerala holiday!

Room Tip: Wide variety of rooms for every budget. Choose rooms that have a good view of the backwaters uninter...

Dear Reviewer,

Thank you for writing in. Your advice is definitely taken and my Chef has done some work on enhancing the Kerala cuisine in his menus.
In fact we have many a food festival planned on this very theme.

Thank you once again.

We stayed here during the last weekend of June. It was such a great experience to stay in their traditional cottage. And to add to that the great hospitality and superb dining experience made the experience more wonderful !!!! I would rate this hotel in terms of hospitality among the best I have experienced ever in my life. Special mention for the speedy checkin and friendly front office team.I felt proud that such a hotel is in my home district. Looking forward to the next visit.

Room Tip: If you are looking for standard rooms, ask for the rooms withlake view.

We stayed here for a night during our holiday in Kerala and we left hoping that we had planned to stay longer.

The hotel location is beautiful and the staff members make it memorable.

The check in was quick and the rooms were spacious coupled with the best bath products I have seen.

The front office team is very attentive and helpful.

We managed to use the Jacuzzi at the hotel and should not be missed (especially for couples). The view and the treatment provided by the members of the spa team exceeded all expectations.

All the meals at the hotel were well prepared and the ability to customize the dishes to meet specific requests was commendable.

The hotel has a fantastic spa where we opted for a 70 minute massage and this too was very well executed and SHOULD NOT BE MISSED.

Would recommend to stay at the hotel for at least 3 nights to enjoy all the value added services that they offer.

A special thank you to the front office team member who made us feel extra special and made sure that our stay was fantastic.

I am just in love with this hotel,coming back to Kerala always is fun and the weather and the greenery gives all the reasons to spend your vacation with family here.I am going to recommend this Hotel to all my friends.The property is excellent,the staff here is to die for...don't know how they are so polite...seems everybody is in a good mood always...met the general manger,hotel managers and front desk staff and also the restaurant staff and they all are very good in their jobs...very caring.The food is very good,in fact met the chef also.Overall we had a good time in this hotel and surely going to come back.One advice to all is to confirm the billing with their sales office in Cochin as there was some confusion in billing but as it should be..... handled very nicely by the hotel staff.

Room Tip: Rooms with balcony are good

We had a nice relaxed extended weekend stay at the WelcomHotel Raviz, Kollam, The property is nice, the staff (especially Siva and Isaac at the Front Desk, Bivin at the Travel Desk, Eldhose, Hari and the two floor managers at River Side restaurant and Anson at the pool, Vinod and all the security guards) were exceptionally polite, helpful, welcoming and caring.

The rooms were clean, decently sized, well provided. The one thing we did miss was an attached balcony with our room (we stayed in a Deluxe room), to laze outside and enjoy the rains.

We had all our meals at the hotel only. Food was good, not exceptional though. Service was exceptional.
