We stayed there on 4th April 2015. I’d like to say my heartfelt thanks to Mrs Susan and family for the awesome treat and the great accommodation. No further words to express our sincere gratitude.It was really amazing to stay there for a night. The cottage was neat and clean and so close to the lake.A very calm place!!! The hospitality of each and every person was excellent. The food was delicious, a special thanks to Aji, kitchen staff and all.

Most of the resorts in the Kumarakom area is overpriced, maybe to maintain some sort of exclusivity, this is where Illikkalam scores. This resort is worth from a price point of Rs. 2500/- for a lake facing double room. It is more like a homestay and less like a hotel, which means, you may not find the standard star class amenities, or trained staff, etc. but its worth. The staff is very responsive, but since they are not trained you may not see the professionalism, but you’ll feel the genuine warmth of Kerala hospitality.Stayed May 2015, traveled with family.

An excellent location to chill out in Kumarakom at very budgeted pricing. The rooms are specious and bedding quality is superb. Very friendly staffs and management. Ample space to roam around and the view of Vembanad Kayal is awesome from rooms. They also have gaming area with Badminton, TT, caroms, etc.. Nice place to know the nature as they have a huge verity of trees and plants 🙂  Also you can find lots of verities of butterflies their which is becoming a rare site in most parts of Kerala.
