Relaxing Weekend Getaway
The stay was amazing and the staff were hospitable. However, we had booked for a 2 day stay at the garden villa, but they had overbooked and were able to provide us only with a single day stay. To make up for the discomfort, they upgraded us to their premium villa with private pool and a free houseboat ride for an hour. It turned out to be a relaxing weekend. The restaurant is great and the food tasted great. More choices for dessert would have been better.

Check in and check out was smooth. We booked lakeside Villa and our room was well maintained. The lakeside views from our room were gorgeous. Our stay was very pleasant. The staff of the property are courteous and friendly.

Beautifully designed resort, once you get to it. Remote, small residential unpaved alleys, poorly marked from main road is the only vehicular access to it unfortunately. Lovely, clean cottages and rooms with unique open air bathrooms enhanced our eco friendly experience; I appreciated it, but probably not for those unprepared for the mosquito attack whenever you use the toilet. I just attacked back! Our biggest disappointment was the food quality at the only restaurant at the resort. If you are looking for typical touristy food, you'll be fine. Being the hometown of my deceased father, we were very familiar with traditional cuisine. Located on the bay waters, we hoped for a variety of fresh seafood, cooked authentic local cuisine style. Our experience was sadly contrary. The restaurant is definitely setup to encourage their buffets offerings, which offered mostly non-Kerala cuisine and very limited seafood. When we tried A la carte orders, the taste and freshness of fish was lacking, which is not what one expects at a higher end resort as Punnamada. It seemed the cooks were best at non-local cuisine. I hope they improve and explore unique opportunity available by location. We watched fisherman pass by daily with their fresh catches of the day. Why not support them? Visiting tourists would gladly pay a premium for freshly caught local seafood. My fav part of the resort was Yoga and massage. I learned a lot from yoga instructor Mr. Pradeep, who was excellent teacher!

Cute resort but bit pricey.
The stay was good especially the free boat ride in the evening and yoga session in the morning. It was an unexpected pleasant surprise.

4/10 Fair

Failed to meet expectations. In need of a lot of maintenance. Food was sub-par. They originally agreed to give me a late check out, but then the day of told me someone else was arriving so i they needed my room and i needed to leave. The place was mostly empty so i think they just couldn't be bothered with my request (that they already agreed to).

Value-for-money stay
The best part of our stay was the in-house restaurant by the lake/backwaters. Food was fab and we had one of the best appom and coffees in south of India. Our garden villas were generally clean and comfy but because they were nestled in nature, there were a lot of bugs and mozzies despite the cool weather. That said, the hotel recep is happy to provide you with insect repellant cream any time and the beds came with a net to keep those flying creatures out. At the point of arrival, there was a lot of construction going on, so it seemed like the place was a bit of a mess but as you venture further into the pty, the rustic greenery puts you at ease. They have plenty of games and activities; from tennis/badminton courts to foosball and ping-pong. Don't miss the complimentary sunset cruise!

Great grounds, poorly trained staff
An extremely sour end to a nice stay at your resort. 28 minutes to check out and pay extras because of unprepared and seemingly untrained reception staff. When it takes 28 minutes to check out the only guests staying in the hotel, you know it's time to think about your processes and training. Don't make a guest wait while you hunt for 40 rupees change and then ask that guest if they can provide the exact 3740 amount - just wipe off the 40 ruppees When we also questioned why a 100 ruppee bottle of water we had asked for with our breakfast had appeared on our bill I was told, "No!" and "this is a five star resort price" as if that made it okay. Even more concerning given it is a 4 star hotel... I guess the customer isn't always right after all.
