    The worst hotel in the planet

    One of the worst hotel experiences so far. No toilet rolls - had to wait for 1 hr 10 min and 4 phone calls to get it. dirty bedsheets and towels. no breakfast even after waiting for an hour. had to leave the hotel with other guests to some place outside to get breakfast. and no refund for the same. there are many better options in that area. this one is just a disgrace to india tourism.

    5/5 Excellent

    Good back water view

    It was a good experience over all, best experience was going on speed boat and island trek. Food was ok, but I would recommend to try out local food.

    4/5 Good

    4/5 Good

    A pleasant stay with comfortable environment.

    the room is pretty spacious, the lightings are soothing, the ayurvedic massage was very rejuvenating, the swimming pool is very big, clean and well maintained. We took a villa private pool which was also pretty big for just two of us, the hotel management was always at our service and they cater to your needs immediately. food was not great, but it is the best available in kerala. We also had access to the gym, table tennis, badminton, boating.
