Kumarakom Lake Resort in Asia’s top 25 resorts!

Kumarakom Lake Resort continues to make waves with travel enthusiasts. In the Conde Nast Reader Choice Awards 2008, it has been adjudged one of Asia’s top 25 resorts. One of the most respected travel publications worldwide, Conde Nast Traveller’s annual readers poll is highly anticipated and respected.

Kumarakom Lake Resort is the only Kerala resort to feature in the list, which includes premium properties in Bali, Maldives, Phuket, Chiang Mai and a handful of select names from Indian hospitality. The listed resorts are rated on Activities/Facilities, Food/Dining, Location, Overall Design, Rooms and Service.

A heritage luxury retreat set by the shores of the Lake Vembanad, Kumarakom Lake Resort showcases both the heritage and the natural beauty of the land in a harmonious manner. Ancient homesteads have been transplanted from all across Kerala to create the fifty-nine heritage villas and luxury rooms in the serene retreat.

Luxury has been given special emphasis all through the resort, as is obvious through two if its newest offerings – the Heritage Villas with Private Pool, which offer a personal plunge pool and Jacuzzi attached to each villa, enclosed in its own private courtyard for maximum seclusion. The Luxury Pavilion Rooms, tucked away amidst lush greenery offer an ambience that is at once cozy and imposing.

The Meandering Pool Villas arrayed by the banks of a 250 mtr long meandering pool, are a blend of heritage with luxury within while the luxurious Presidential Suites, each with its own private pool and a very personal view of the lake offer travelers the opportunity to be pampered beyond expectations.

The resort adheres to traditional, heritage aesthetics throughout its fifteen acres. The resort’s main, multicuisine restaurant for instance, is a 200 year old ‘Ettukettu’ or 8 sided mansion. The Ayurveda centre, Ayurmana, is a four-sided mansion that once belonged to a noted family of Ayurvedic practitioners. Its seafood restaurant and bar, is stunningly positioned by the waterfront to make the most of each sunset.

Kumarakom Lake Resort is no stranger to awards, being the winner of the World Travel Award for India’s Leading Resort 3 years in a row (2006, 2007 and 2008). The Conde Nast honour is especially significant as it is voted for by highly discerning end users – the travellers themselves.
