This hotel has a lovely location overlooking the river with interesting gardens and birdlife. You can also walk very easily into the nearby village for a taste of Indian life. The staff were very welcoming and even put on a special outdoor dinner for us in the gardens.The rooms and bathroom were very spacious.I would think it would be an excellent choice for an ayurvedic retreat. I was on a tour of Kerala and this was definitely the best hotel of the trip
This retreat is a great place to stay, Absolutely beautiful. We stayed here for two nights whilst on our touring holiday of Kerala. Staff very helpful, bedroom spaceous, clean. Well equiped with fridge, kettle, tea and coffee.
At least this Heritage Ayurvedic Resort was only just off the main road. There is a separate Reception Area where you check-in. The hotel rooms are in blocks and there is some construction work on site. My room had a great view across the river and a large balcony accessed from the corridor. The bathroom was interesting as it was painted completely black. The settee was very low and I had to roll out on to the floor before pulling myself up again. There is a nice bright restaurant and the menu was good but the results were a little uncertain. I am used to eating in Indian restaurants in the UK and so I ordered 2 poppadoms, Chicken Tikka and a Vegetable Korma. The Chicken Tikka was delicious, the Vegetable Korma was overcooked and a grey green colour. The poppadoms arrived at the end of the meal. The whole experience was saved by a bowel of delicious Gulab Jamun. The view is interesting as it not only takes in the current road bridge but also the one that had collapsed some time in the past. I would return to enjoy what the surrounding area has to offer including a university specialising in Kerala music and dancing traditions.
Stayed there only for a night with family.. (infact,for just a few hours would be more apt to say) and was completely bowled over by this Kochi summer palace turned resort... so peaceful and dreamy with lots of shade trees and the river nearby. It's a shame we didn't have much time to go for many of the Ayurvedic massages available in their treatment centre :( The staff was very courteous, only complaint was lack of options at the breakfast buffet (the venue came across as a bit cramped too). We had booked a car from them to visit Guruvayoor and Mamiyoor temple on the day we arrived and the driver was exceptionally good and knowledgeable, we returned safely at around 11:00 P.M. in the night. Loved the room interiors, lighting and the spacious bathroom as well as the adjoining common balcony cum corridor. I would definitely return to stay at this stellar heritage property with typical old world charm once again. P.S. There is a good neera shop on the road leading to the palace.
We booked the resort for our family reunion of 57 pax for 2 days. Prince was coordinating with me for the booking , his efforts are worth to mention. He ensured each every requirement of us was taken care with special treatment. 22 rooms were booked in total & I must say the rooms were spacious & comfortable with amazing ambience.Resort itself is located near the river. Service of the staff is something I should mention here. All staff had a pleasant smile through out the stay we had. Each & every family member had the same opinion of the excellent service let it be hospitality, food, accommodation & the activity hall/ outdoor facilities like pool, cricket nets , security etc. And there was never a "NO" from Prince & team on each request. I had made a couple of last minute request which were addressed with topmost priority & these are highly appreciated. There were many value added service provided to us which ensured all the guests were comfortable. I would recommend this resort for its beutiful location near the river , the fantastic management they have, the very special rooms & the amazing food they serve. It was a great memorable 2 days for all of us during the stay.
