4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This property is situated on the banks of lake nice scenery and gives a very good relaxing admosphere. Staff needs to be more clear while communicating to the guests on queries and also can avoid the answer a blunt no. Wi-Fi needs more improvement for better connection.

We stayed here for 2N/3D. Very calm and serene ambience. Lots of greenery in the property. Nice and clean rooms. Food is descent. Mr Praveen @ Restaurant is very helpful, and Mr Santosh @ Front desk helped us by arranging cab for travel and also helped with a ferry ride to nearby island. Swimming pool is clean and maintained. I definitely recommend this place.

It was really a delightful and beautiful stay out here :") We stayed here for 2 days we will really tired bad wanted a good break and this place bought the best out of us in terms of mind relaxation and the service they provided . The staff is courteous and very pleasing what every one would require Brilliant stay and location

It is right on the vembanadu back Waters. Good facilities. Can access the pathiramanal bird sanctuary from nearby boat jetty. Can hire houseboats / shikaras from there or the hotel itself. North Indian food choices are available.

Please do not go by the pictures on the net. They claim to be 4 star but they are hardly 2 star. For everything we need to contact the reception and they have no 'all-purpose-kit' !!! The tea bags given are loose and the staff brings clutched in his hands..highly unhygienic!!! Loose tea bags, sugar, etc are all stuffed in a glass!! Toiletries all of very low grade. Towels - veryyyy old. Beneath the Restaurant is a water body, highly unclean and stagnant water. They are not even bothered to clean it. Food is horrible and it takes ages after placing the order. We had one dinner and most of my family had upset stomach. The breakfast time is 8:00AM but it takes more than 8:30AM before you can get anything to eat. The toaster is dirty and is of some ancient age. Bread box is dirty and un-used bread of previous day is again kept for breakfast. Even the milkshakes & smoothies are of previous days are kept the next day. The resort location is the BIGGEST problem. It is in interior where it takes ages to find. We took about 1.5 hrs to locate the resort and it was disappointing right from the entrance gate. Reception guy seems cold, no smile or welcome. This was another disappointment. Though there is a beautiful backwater view behind the resort but they do not keep it clean. Am sure the govt or anyone else would not stop them if they keep that part clean. Also, in pictures they show fishes and lobsters & crabs & king prawns....but in reality there is nothing they have or cook. Atleast, we could not get anything as good as in pictures. Swimming pool - has no rules, we found people with no swimming costume, ladies were in their night-wears(locally called nighties), men in their shorts and kids in theirs. I have my serious doubts if the pool is ever cleaned. My sincere advice to travelers - book if staying only for a night & you have a dedicated cab. DO NOT book if you are used to 4 star or 5 star hotels. Carry your own food please.

I stayed with my family in this resort on 11th May '17.Location is v v remote. Staff dont look professional. The rooms are clean , bathrooms too clean. The rating given is average because of the water stream flowing below the open restaurant , so dirty , v v unhygenic , stinking . Scared to have food because of this !. Backwaters viewing is the only consoling thing. Kids really got bored as there were no games or facilities claimed in their website. On the whole average stay. No maintenance . Wifi facility was good though.

Horrible experience.. located at such a remote location.. there is nothing around the property.. the only good part was the backwaters that are just in the backyard of the property.. other than that terrible experience.. The staff is totally non-courteous, pro in playing the best blame game possible.. used phrases like ' I have done my part, rest you can see', ignorant about eateries and touristy places nearby.. I really fail to understand this part.. as per my experience, this is the most common question at any tourist destination.. what the hell is the front desk for if they don't know the answer for 'places around you'!! food is below average to the level of totally bland... never ordered lunch/dinner.. preferred to go out n eat... Wi-Fi connectivity is terrible.. A humble request..Do not go by the pictures shown here.. they are deceiving.. the swimming pool has broken tiles...dive in only if you are ready to risk yourself.. spa is overly expensive.. They have a head office in Ernakulam.. we contacted them for few queries.. even those guys did not leave a stone unturned in being rude and inconsiderate.. very money-minded people.. I had actually booked another Deshadan property in Kerala for an upcoming long holiday but cancelled it right away after having this horrific experience.. Will never recommend Deshadan to anyone..

Awasome get away though in the interiors right on lake vembanand food was really good worth the nightly rate they have this tie up with the boat guys who took us to this authentic Kerala food nice rooms awasome view peace calm if u r looking for that they have a pool too

Rooms are nicely maintained, very nice property, infinity swimming pool extending view to Back waters is a clear winner. Restaurant manager Mr. Bibi is amazing, he single-handedly managed all the guests...a Gem of a person. Front office staff needs to be more courteous and understanding.

This resort is a perfect weekend getaway. Just about 40 kms from Cochin. Beautiful property, well maintained. The rooms and beautiful and spacious. Staff is good. Food is also good. The complementary breakfast is good. Try the fish cuisine. They provide boating, spa, indoor and outdoor games. Good for family and also got friends. Nice infinity pool. The room with private pool is awesome.
