We went to Kumarakom with expectations to relax in contrast to our busy city lifestyle. And we were definitely not disappointed. The resort is very well situated in the already so beautiful Kumarakom. There is no second guessing in the fact that Kerela is called God's own country.

Our son was visiting us and we wanted not a conventional hotel or resort. So, we chose Waterscape which is located right next to the bird sanctuary and right on Vembanad lake. We were little nervous as this is a Kerala State government venture. On check in itself, our fear was dismissed. The receptionist Aruna was very pleasant and helpful....

In a world of continuously squeezing hotel room size, this place offers independent and spacious chalet at a reasonable price. It's good for family and all ages. It's peaceful and reasonably clean.

It was unique living in cottages made on stilts. The room was nice, comfortable and clean. Going to the dinning room in the night was a bit tough because the complex is huge and one can get lost. The food served was decent and good.
