A week relaxing and rejuvenation package

This hotel was absolutely perfect in every way. Our bungalow was spacious, clean, well laid out with a large bedroom, large bathroom and living area. We had a balcony that overlooked the lake which we sat out on every evening. The food in the restaurant was fantastic, the curries were superb. There was plenty of variety with salads, soups and vegetarian dishes. Breakfast was a buffet style with plenty of choice. The hotel is set in stunning well kept grounds on the bank of a large backwater lake. There is a lovely small patio bar. It is so peaceful and serene that we didn't want to leave. It is perfect for any keen bird watcher as there are numerous specious of birds. The Spa was very luxurious and everyone involved with the treatments were exceptional. Every member of staff we came into contact with were friendly, polite and helpful. I cannot say enough good things about this place, we really didn't want to leave and cannot wait to return. If i had to make one small criticism it would be that maybe the pool could do with a little touch up regarding some of the tiling, but that didn't take away any of the pleasure we had swimming in it every day. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants absolute peace and quiet and spa relaxation.

We spent 4 nights at the Fragrant Nature Resort in Kollam with a group of friends to celebrate a special birthday. The staff and management went out of their way to make our stay trulz memorable. From the well kept rooms and cottagges to the fantastically kept gardens, the wonderful food and foremost the friendly and welcoming staff, everything was perfect. We will certainly visit again in the future to this oasis of calm and relaxation in southern India. A big thank you to all that made our stay so memorable.

Hidden Gem of Kollam Kerala
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

I have had the pleasure of staying at this property twice. First time I stayed with my family in the 2 bedroom villas for 6 nights was in May18. Not knowing anything much about Kerala and being first time visitors to we had amazing stay, which was truly memorable because of the service of staff. They went out of the way to accommodate our requests and their warm and pleasant hospitality won our hearts. The housekeeping staff were absolute delight and by the end of our trip they became really good friends with my mum. The F&B staff went out of the way to accommodate special requests as we had to host some visitors and they organized tea and snacks without hesitation.

My second trip was just last month in Feb19 which was unplanned however when I approached them for booking their reservation staff got back to me on the same day of inquiry. And reaching the property at 3am they ensured I got to my room ASAP.
Noted the renovation to the room and bathroom which was pleasant surprise and that made the stay even better.

In my opinion the 2 key strong points for this property are:

1. Location - this is spread over 6 acres I believe. If you love privacy this place is amazing. Plus being near the lake and surrounded by nature is truly amazing experience. Unspoiled beauty and it’s truly pleasing to see a resort embracing sustainable tourism. There is so much serenity and peace in this place and you can truly forget the stress of the world. Mornings were my favourite you wake to this amazing lake view, hear the songs from the temple and everything just blends so well together to give you a perfect start of the day. Evenings have amazing sunsets and watching birds fly home is a something to experience as well. PEACE and CALM is screams everywhere you go.

2. Service – There service touches your heart and it is very simple as they genuinely care about their guests. Please look after your staff as I believe they are your strong selling point and for me to be repeat customer this is one of the key reasons I choose to come back. Please pass my thanks for the housekeeping staff their daily message of the petal and flowers are lovely. In both our stays we loved the gesture. It was small token yet it so lovely. I also got treatments at the spa. Swati and Rashmi took amazing care of me. Swati took time to explain the treatment what works and how it works. It was nice to see that nothing was being pushed and more time was spent to explain before I could decide on the treatment option.

I got to try the boat ride to mangroves – I have 1 regret why I didn’t do this is our initial trip. This was mind blowing as I just didn’t know what to expect. I chose to go in the morning 7am which by the way is high recommended as the sunrise is breathtaking and amazing scenery to take in. Thanks to the front office staff they kept insisting I should try and thank for reminding me.

Area of improvement: Food – Food was ok but I do feel this is one area you could improve on. I am not use to eating Indian every day and at breakfast the cereal options didn’t look appealing to me. On positive note the omelettes was the best I have ever had.

I surely am looking forward to my next stay hopefully Kochin next time.

Many Thanks
