Beautiful location and property but poorly maintained. The views from the property are superb. couldn't sit by the pool in the evening due to mosquitos.The food was decent. The staff needs to be more professional.

A good hotel in an excellent location - just leaves me wondering "what could have been" - if a little more attention was given to several small things - which actually distinguish a good resort from better and the best ones. We stayed in Marina block, and the view from the room is just too good - particularly at night....

Excellent location, and got much needed rest here after our 10 days of Kerala tour, wish that we could have allotted an extra day here to explore Cochin, and relaxed at this resort. Only sore point was Ayurvedic massage facilities. I wanted that famous Kerala massage, and I asked them and they said they will extend the time for me...

I stayed at this resort in February 2017..Having been a student of colonial history this resort had a special appeal.for me. .I did stay at this resort a good few years ago .It looked as if it has been significantly renovated except perhaps the restaurant area which I found slightly crowded as well--food ,however, was varied and tasty. Comfortable rooms...

It's a great serene location, an island in backwaters. Nice breeze and greenery around. Don't expect facilities of a 5 star resort, still all the amenities are decent enough. The price is equal to a 3 star property, and the amenities are great compared to similarly priced properties. I did kayaking too, which was great. The food was a mix...

Nice location, with view of water from almost all sides, wide open areas and green gardens, but need much improvement in services, eventually left unsatisfied. As a guest you need homely feeling but approach of staff way far behind.

Beautiful location - on the waterfront, lovely gardens- enormous rooms with 20 ft ceilings. A lovely setting. Food could be better but a great place to stay. Large open spaces very old worldly and laid back but great for a relaxed time.
