Kumarakom Lake Resort,
Info : Kumarakom Lake Resort
This is without a doubt the finest hotel by the backwaters, spread over 25 acres on Lake Vembanad. It’s famous for many things, including a mighty fine high tea on the lawn, and for hosting Prince Charles and his entourage for the British royal’s 65th birthday celebrations in 2013. Kumarakom Lake Resort is a great choice for those seeking luxury standards in beautiful Kumarakom.
From the resort, you can organise day trips into the backwaters, or visit the Kavanar Bird Sanctuary to spot hundreds of rare and beautiful bird species. Instead, you may choose never to leave the resort, which is equipped with a lakeside infinity pool and Jacuzzi, a fitness centre, an Ayurvedic spa, and plenty of water sports on the lake. Save some time for a banana boat ride(!) or a sunset lake cruise. Although there are two great restaurants on-site, if you want to go out for dinner, you can access the resort by vehicle.
The rooms and villas are arranged in a U shape so as to make the most of the wonderful views. The meandering pool villas are particularly unique; all arranged around a private pool with separate step entrances from the villas themselves. All the rooms are spacious, but the heritage villas are particularly large and have their own private pools.
Kumarakom Lake Resort is large and sprawling, so it doesn’t have an intimate feel to it, but if you want a certain standard of luxury and royal treatment, this is by far the best place to stay in the area.
Superior - This is what we would describe as our standard category. These will be decent 3/4* hotels providing a really good level of service. We would generally expect them to be providing a little something extra, in terms of character, guest experience or facilities too.

Kerala in Style
Two weeks travelling through Kerala in top notch hotels, relaxing and interesting in equal measure.
The one-on-one guide arranged with Experience Travel Group enabled me to get so much more from my trip to India. As well as the almost compulsory visits to the Taj Mahal and Red Fort, I was shown a variety of busy towns and mall villages, traditional crafts and skills, religious buildings and practices, architecture and wildlife, finishing with a very relaxing stay in Tikli Bottom.
