"Best moment of my Kerala Trip”

Saro Lake County was my last day of stay in Kerala. From the moment I entered the Hotel to the time I left for airport, I enjoyed every minute of my short stay here. The location couldn’t be better, the hotel is "touching" the back waters. We even experienced natural pedicure from the fish in the backwaters.
The warm and friendly nature of the manager Mr. Jithin made the experience worthwhile. He spoke very well and gave a lot of insight about Kerala. The room and interiors were fantastic. I would definitely recommend Saro Lake to anyone planning to go Kumarokom. All the best to the Hotel and the manager Mr. Jitihin.

“Mesmerizing view with a beautiful sunset point just in front of your room!!”

Just couldn't believe my eyes when we hit road end & was lost with the serenity within the backwaters. Saro lake county is just located in front of a big shore of backwaters where you feel the tranquility of waves coming towards you. We spent 1 night in Saro lake county in a lake view facing room. The place is located right in front of the backwaters where you feel the tidy waves hitting you whilst seated in a hammock. This is a private property with 4 rooms very well maintained by the local staff. Jithin & others treated us with lot of love & took care of all small things. We relish the food prepared by the cook ...The food was served @ the open space where you feel the breeze of backwaters in the night. We felt the food was little overpriced(Tea - 40/-, Omlete - 60/- )...There was no welcome drink served when we reached the venue though it was 3-4 PM in the mid day. Request the staff & the management team to take care of such small things which can attract the customers. As otherwise this was one of our best holiday spent after wedding to cherish special moments....1 more small suggestion to the Saro team - It would be good to make a practice to celebrate some moments when customers request specifically for occasions ( Anniversary, Birthdays) you could make note of the bday/anniversary dates for the customers when calling you for reservation. I feel this could also be one of the best marketing & branding approach to Saro.

“Awesome location, breathtaking view and great hospitality”

We booked Saro Lake County through an online portal. The pictures on the portal were very appealing and we were thoroughly impressed when we landed there. Located at the edge of the famous and massive Vembanad lake you get to witness an awesome view staying here. Early morning view of sun rise, with fisherman on boats gathering days fresh catch seems to come alive straight out of a giant canvas.The darter birds come down flying at great speed to pick up the tiny fishes from the lake with precision. The time seems to stop as you sit near the lake and enjoy nature at its best in this small but very relaxing place.The staff is extremely courteous and provides you home like comfort. The caretaker Jithin is a wonderful person and can be counted upon to make your stay memorable with his great hospitality. A great place to spend quality time with your loved ones. We would definitely like to stay here again.

“Peaceful, clean with excellent service.”

I stayed here as a single female traveller and felt safe and relaxed. I chose a bungalow which faced the lake - which I would recommend. It was clean, comfortable and had the added bonus of a tv and a kettle to make coffee and tea. The service was attentive and helpful and the food was excellent and very reasonably priced. This is a lovely place to stay and I enjoyed sitting on my verandah watching the boats sail past me. I would recommend this.

“Relaxation at its best”

I gone there as part of my office meet in Kumarakom, and I stayed here for 2 nights. It is cottages looks like ayuvedic resorts. We feel something homely inside. Its beauty is that, it is situated on riverside. Their restaurant is also good, with some new fish dishes. I appreciate the staffs for arranging clean around where we can walk, and sit on the benches.

“Best resort in Kumarakom”

I went to India on December, 2nd week, with my boyfriend. I may say I have never been in India before and since many of the feedback's people who's been in India are pretty scary I was a bit concern of almost everything. We landed at Kochi's airport in the night and traveled until Saro Lake County. It was around 1 hour journey and once we reached the resort the sun came up. I am not gonna forget how beautiful was the lake in front of the house and the warm welcome we got. We spent 4 days there having the best meals and the most relaxing holidays ever. The staff was very helpful, we haven't planned any activity for those days and even though that the area had not much to do, the resort manager was arranging every day what we were gonna do. We liked specially the backwaters trips. Usually our daily plans ended up reading or playing games in front of the lake while looking at the sundown. I have a lovely memories of that place and we will definitely come back.

“Great place, great people!”

Thanks for a wonderful experience and memorable vacation at the resort. We had a great time. Thanks again for the fantastic meals, the hammock and also the private table you set up for us.

“Mesmerizing..............”

mesmerizing and wonderful stay in saro..amazing people.. lovely place to stay... Staff is very nice and cooperative. they actually cooked the food the way I wanted and made us feel at home.Very helpful will go back soon for my stay.

“Hidden paradise...”

We spent three nights in this lovely small place located just at the edge of the calm waters of the Saro Lake. As soon as we arrived we felt very welcomed and very relaxed. The bungalow was charming and we spent a lot of time on the terrace, just a few meters from the water. Our room was cosy and clean. The resort is small and very private with a great ambience. Overall we had very good experiences with people when travelling in Kerala, but we must say that the staff in this place was amongst the friendliest and genuine we met. They were also very good at English and helped us arrange things like transportation, boat tours etc (not over-priced) - we were very happy with those services. Apart from the nice staff, the second best thing was the food. We could ask for anything we wanted and the chef would also give us suggestions and then they went shopping the ingredients. The dishes they prepared for us were always well cooked. It was a bit like having a home cooked meel made by a professional chef. We really liked their chapati so they let us into the kitchen and showed us how to make it. If we had had the time we would have stayed longer and we hope to return.

“Wonderful Hospitality”

We've just spent 3 nights at the Saro Lake and had a great time. It is in a beautiful location and we were really well looked after. There are just 4 rooms so it is very small. 3 of the rooms are in a block with 2 directly facing onto the lake and 1 behind with a side view. We stayed in 2 different rooms during our stay. The room at the back is nice and big but we preferred the room directly facing the lake. The rooms are clean and comfortable and everything works. If you are a light sleeper, it might be worth taking some ear plugs as you can hear the other guests if these rooms are occupied. The thing that made this trip so magical for us was the way we were looked after. Nothing was too much trouble and the food was all delicious and so reasonably priced. Saro Lake has its own Jetty and the hotel manager organised a boat trip for us which was perfect. There are also places to walk to and we had a lovely walk around the back waters. This was a great stay and well worth visiting.
