How to Get There
The Kumarakom Lake Resort is truly one of a kind. In all our travels world wide, not possible to think of a place so unique. Very quiet, unique layout with separate units that back up onto the “lazy river” that winds through the property. This lazy river is essentially a two meter wide pool, three plus feet deep that winds many meters around behind many/most of the rooms/suites. This is a MUST if you book here.
Also a full pool right at the water’s edge of the very large lake (you cannot see the other side), an infinity pool. Both the lazy river and pool open all the daylight and some of the evening hours.
Two restaurants to chose from ....seafood where the bar is and international that also serves breakfast.
Staff is very well trained and attentive to your needs. They are good in English but not highly proficient....but you can get your ideas and needs across very easily.
Can access this Resort either by road or by boat....from Kochi and other locations I believe.
Cannot give any higher recommendation. But please consider; wonderful place to relax and enjoy people, swimming, great food and the stunning weather.
The resort is unbelievable. The staff were amazing, they left nothing to chance. Always going the extra mile. The rooms were clean and spacious, loved the outdoor shower too. I'm pretty sure the room was cleaned twice a day. Sunset cruise on the lake was an added bonus. Defo worth a stay.
Nice location and hospitality of the staff is very good. Poland jacuzzi villas are good with open shower concept but a lil too close and has limited privacy . Good food and variety of options in buffet along with live counters.
We also stayed in houseboat which was terrible experience. It seem like they have mix of house boats some of them are good and some with 10-15rooms in single boat, that was horribly bad. Considering it was a group booking we had to adjust with the options.
Very attractive property on the banks of the Vembanad lake and close to the backwaters. We found our room (one of those on the meandering pool, which, as the name suggests, wanders around between a number of rooms) very pleasant but rather airless. The outdoor bathroom (perfectly private as it is enclosed) was nice, but, even with the AC on full to cool the room in this very hot and humid climate, the room was a bit claustrophobic.
The food at the fish restaurant was excellent and service very friendly and helpful. We only had breakfast at the main restaurant, which is very nicely designed. The food there was reasonable, but very heavy pastries, some of the cut fruit not very well prepared, and the coffee dreadful.
Sunset boat ride on the lake very pleasant indeed, and lovely live music played by local musicians made it very restful. We booked a two-hour morning boat ride on the backwaters, which was lovely.
The infinity pool is delightful, though staff could be a bit more attentive and helpful in that area.
The grounds are beautiful and really well maintained, with lovely trees and flowers, lots of birds. Fresh water-coconuts are available (at a small cost) and there is free tea served in the garden every day.
My husband was quite ill while we were there, and all the staff were really helpful. They called a doctor (who was very good indeed), and showed a great deal of concern. They couldn't have been more helpful.
We loved our stay at Kumarakom Lake Resort. We had a villa with a swim-in pool. It was beautiful, comfortable, food was great, and the setting on the Vembanad lake is perfect. Perfect resort to explore the backwaters!!!
