Stay is good but it is a kind of average hotel with lack of amenities. But the hotel is very near to all the Boat Jetty. Where you can rent any kind of Boats and see through places as per your wish. Food is provided based on your need and it is average.

So, after much research we finally selected the Tharavadu Heritage home. What caught my attention were the beautiful pictures of the place. I did read the reviews and the only con about it was that it was just...

This place is ideal if you want to play a cruel prank on somebody. The only thing that's modern about this place is the Wi-Fi. Which by the way works only close to the reception. Their was absolutely no pressure in the cold water tap. The remote for the AC is shared by All the rooms. Their aren't any English...

Tharavadu Heritage home is perfectly located. Across the road is the boat jetty. The stay is wonderful. Food is awesome. Their Duck mapas is one of the best I ever had. There are some complaints about 4 am Bhajan from a near by temple. But that is not very disturbing.

Tharavadu Heritage home, a traditional Syrian Christian family house, (originally built in 1870) is a fairy tale space in itself. Our stay here is something I will never forget and for all the good reasons. I was spellbound to see the setting of this beautiful house, situated by the backwater channel and surrounded by small canals and rich lush evergreen...

We had planned a 3 day trip to Kerala with one day stay at Kumarakom. This is a heritage place which is more than 100 years old. So, we did not expect the luxuries of a resort/star hotel. The place has got that old charm with the backwaters flowing just next to the home stay. Though it hasn't got the...

Rooms are like any heritage hotel rooms however the best thing is service and the beautiful ambience. Its a small area but worth spending. Meals were beautifully cooked and were so concerned about the guests need. A traditional Athithi Devo Bhava experience is the best term.
