Really enjoyed the location. Beautiful narrow local road and friendly neighbourhood. Beautiful spot to watch the sunset over the lake. Host was very helpful with giving us travel tips and directions. So much natural beauty but SO much litter too. Plastic everywhere and dirty water. TONS of mosquitoes but they stay outside as the room as AC. We enjoyed this...

Even though being greeted and treated quiet charmingly, the rooms were literally a mood spoiler. The package was a moderate one and we were quite happy about that, but shockingly a room with nothing but dust, no waste bins and No door lock for the "BATHROOM"!!! made us think the package was quite high. The breakfast served was of 5...

We stayed in Sylvania for almost one week at the beginning of January 2016. This place is a bird sanctuary itself, cottages in a huge garden plenty of trees and all kind of birds, far away from all noisy streets.

The place is not kept properly. Rooms had plate sized holes in them and was full of lizards. The rooms were also smelly. Service was very bad. Four rooms run by the owner himself. He is not able to manage the show by himself. Bad choice to stay in kumarakom!

Hi All, We were in Sylvania last weekend. The ambiance is excellent with lot of spice trees, sound of birds and it's a quite calm and peaceful atmosphere. The place is just near the lake and hardly 5 min walk from the main road. The people there are too friendly and helpful. And about food: You can order any fish/food...
