Review by : molshri

After reading such fantastic reviews everywhere, my family and me decided to go to kayaloram for a few days to watch the famous boat races. Heres the reality check- 1) there are 12 cottages located at the edge of the backwaters. The area is extremely small. If you are looking for long walks along the backwaters, then you will be sorely diassappointed. 2) The website says there are all amentites but there are no televisions in the room and no intercom. Also, no room service. If you are looking to get a cup of tea, you have to walk to the restaurant. If its raining, then you would just have to get wet and since there is no intercom, you cant even call for umbrellas. 3) There is very little to do in the resort. Most resorts provide some sort of entertainment. Well. be prepared to be bored if you want to spend more than 2 nights here 4) If you are claustrophobic, then these rooms are definitely not for you. Very dark, closed and small. If you open the windows, be prepared for mosquitoes. Also, my room had white lights. How dull it looked. 5) The open air bathing area is interesting but could somebody please put a barricade or shower curtains between the bathing area and the loo. Everytime it rains, the toilet paper and towels get wet. If ure sitting on the bowl, be prepared for a bath too. So ridiculous. 6) Our trip to the boat races was such a disappointment. Extremely small boat and too many people almost led to a disaster. I think ours was the smallest boat at the races and we could barely see the races. We paid 300 bucks a head to see the races but could barely catch a glimpse of it. On the other hand, there was a larger boat which left before us from the same hotel. Not only were those people provided with entertainment but the food seemed so much better. Could someone from the hotel tell me what that was all that about? 7) The door hinges are wooden all right but so creaky that everytime someone enters the rooms or goes to the bathroom at night, everyone else in the room wakes up. My baby had a fright several times at night 8) Having said all this, the saving grace is the excellent service of the staff at the restauant and Raymond (who carefully and patiently listened to our feedback). The food is the best I have tasted in a long time too. Even the days trip in the kettuvalam (houseboat) was a wonderful experience with some great kerala cuisine and some good local company Please just make minor changes and make this place more liveable. We were so so disappointed cause we came from a great distance just to stay here.

Cons :
Great food and staff. Very helpful

Uncomfortable rooms and no room service
