Kumarakom Lake Resort is situated on the banks of the picturesque Vembanad Lake, and provides a large waterfront. In an area of 25 acres, all cottages are independent and are built in a traditionally Kerala style. Some of the cottages are very old. These have been transferred with care and relocated in the Kumarakom Lake Resort. Each has a history, available for the guest to read and carry home. The Resort is a veritable architectural archive. A perfect blend of tradition and elegance is mixed up. Charming cottages with interiors that are quaint and cozy, armed with all modern amenities, and a few extras. At the Kumarakom Lake Resort, guests can choose from 50 double-bedded, spacious, elegantly decorated, centrally air-conditioned traditional cottages. The Kumarakom Lake Resort is proudly serving at least 250 guests per day. Each ethnic cottage overlooks silvery canals, punctuated with translucent lotuses, slicing the front yard. Each cottage, has been painstakingly restored and relocated from 'Illums' (homesteads of yore), to immerse you in the splendor and grandeur of Kerala's magnificent history, life and culture.
Popularly known as KLR, this resort also played a very good role for the promoting Kumarakom as a popular destination in the international Tourism sector. Located along the Kumarakom backwaters, stretching more than 7-8 acres of land, KLR now owns 48 villas, which are totally independent & private. Exclusive pool villas are also available. KLR can be categorized as the deluxe class resort but the highest tariff pattern makes it only for high spending tourists. The tariff starts from 195 USD onwards per cottage/night basis during the season and will go up to 300 USD per night per cottage if you choose higher category ones. As far as service is concerned, there is enough scope for improvement!
