"Great if you want to relax!!"
We picked the Eco friendly Coconut Lagoon after researching reviews of hotels for some time.
We travelled from Cochin to Kumarakom ( approx 2 hr drive and Rs2000-approx £20) and arrived at the hotel by boat. We received a lovely welcome, with a gentleman playing a flute and each guest was given a flower.
Our room was clean and spacious, and an extra bed had been already set up as requested.
We loved the outdoor bathroom. The shower was amazing.
The wi-fi is free, and was available in our room.
There was no TV in the room, but there is a recreation room, where access to a TV is possible. There are numerous activities available....yoga, meditation, and there is a lovely pool area.
There is a lovely little shop where you can buy gifts
Both my children had a massage, but be warned, it's not for the faint hearted, and isn't the same as a massage back home!
We had planned to organize a night on a houseboat, but the hotels houseboat was unavailable, and when a member of staff made further enquiries, I was quoted a very high price (almost double the usual rate) for an alternative boat.
Faced with nowhere to stay for a night, i enquired about another night at the Coconut Lagoon, but was told that the only accommodation available was the most expensive villa ( costing approx £140 a night), which, in the low season, in a near half empty resort, I find difficult to believe.
In spite of this, I would recommend this hotel. If you want to relax, this is the place for you!!
