Reason For Rating : The question is not clear: Yatra or the hotel?

Ancient building. Resorts in an island. You can reach here by there own boat. Ambience is good. Room required maintenance. Painting everywhere peeled off. Toilet is not so clean. Food is average. Overall an average stay.

I m writing this review from hotel room only. Property is not at all maintained just like shown in pics. Room service is pathetic. No swimming pool for kids Very scary place for small active children Room ac is not working and after many complaints hotel staff doesn't bother to come n see the situation Only attraction is backwater nithing else. I would never suggest to anybody. Food is also not up to the mark I think all soma properties and management have same problems

Let me start with this place looks wonderful. Its beautifully set out and the rooms are large and clean with an old raj feeling ( though the bathroom tired). Its on an island which is nice but you are at the mercy of the hotel boat service which is shall we say- intermittent even when you request specific times. We were very clear about timings and told yes then nearly missed our houseboat as a result of waiting for everyone else. We waited nearly an hour on another occasion to be picked up- to see an empty boat eventually arrive. The auyrvedic treatments are great and well priced and the practitioners lovely. The food is buffet and ok. I found the staff to lack initiative. After asking lots of questions about attending the Vaikom temple they arranged for us to go WHEN IT WAS CLOSED. It was a complete waste of time.( FYI- temple open from 4-11.30am and then opens again 500pm to 900pm.) Generally I think the ethos of this place is lazy. We asked to book a houseboat run by them and they said- 'you have to do that yourself'. They missed out on our business but we got somewhere fantastic ( see review). I think they need to smarten up their act if they want to appeal to Western tourists.

This hotel is on an island and you get there by a small ferry boat which you may have to wait a while for. Architecturally the place is great. As is normal in most Indian hotels the WiFi is so weak that you cannot use it. Also common is the lack of hot water in the bathrooms. I can shower in cold water but shaving in cold water is never fun. The swimming pool had scum on the surface and, whist shallow, you could not see the bottom there was so much green algae in the water. None of our group used the pool! Dinner was good with a nice choice on the buffet, breakfast the same. But be aware this is a teetotal hotel. No alcohol of any sort. Furthermore you my not bring your own, except maybe, for consumption in your own (fridgeless) room.

The setting is lovely being on its own island however this makes it a bit tricky to find! I had emailed 3 times to ask for a taxi transfer from Kerela train station but only had a reply once it was too late and we sorted ourselves out! Our driver asked a local person how to find it as the phone number on booking.com was not working. The food was buffet style but distinctly average, enough for most tastes though. The treatments however were very reasonably priced and the staff in the Ayurveda centre were wonderful. We attempted to pop out to see the local temple but were not told it would be closed in the afternoon so wasted a lot of time for nothing and then waited 45 mins for the boat to be sent back to collect us! Before check out we explained we needed to be in our taxi to head off to a houseboat by 10:15, we were told that was fine but then made to wait while 2 families checked out and ended up half an hour late!! Thankfully our house boat waited for us.... speaking of which, I had asked reception if they could help book us a houseboat, I was told the Soma Houseboat was a separate entity, handed a brochure and told to call myself. I emailed and called and was not called back as promised so we booked elsewhere! Our room was lovely, great original features and very clean. Would have had another point if the bathroom wasnt quite so tired.
