What a location; top notch; thanks to it being a Kerala Tourism department property. But that's it. Typical government type property with a fantastic location but zero upkeep, service, food and any kind of extras. Lousy maintained rooms, absolutely zero room service, lousy food; basically a zero feel good factor when I stayed here. Please do not stay here. Opt...

Beautiful resort, beautiful location, poor management by KTDC. Sad to see an amazing heritage property being destroyed through neglect . Sarkari Chalta hai attitude everywhere. I wish they maintain the property and its antiques in a better manner. The food is poor in variety and taste. So eat outside or get delivered. The massage at the spa is good and...

This is another resort managed by KTDC and they are doing a really good job. The hotel is an old palace now converted into a resort with sea on both sides of it.
