Spent an evening here with the family on our last night in Kerala. Booked a lakeside table in advance and found the staff excellent. We went for the seafood platter and really enjoyed it. The place itself is very beautiful and we'd consider staying there when in the area again

Great place to go to. Friendly staff and fabulous atmosphere. Rooms are spacious, the suites are huge, recommend upgrading to one of those, especially if you have kids. The food was mediocre and did no justice to the rest of the package. Suggest eating out, but very few options nearby unfortunately.

A tranquil hotel with lovely staff especially front desk Mary who was an absolute delight.
