I want to appreciate and thank Mr. Kurian and his son for their great hospitality and care they took for us throughout this journey. Backwater Retreat Theme House is really a wonderful place. We all had a Peaceful and calm atmosphere. It was very relaxing. I will recommend this place for all ages. The food was traditional and spicy, feels like a home away from home for me.
We had a 2 days trip at Kumarakom. One day @ House Boat and another day @ Backwater Retreat Resort. Both was taken care by Backwater Retreat. The Service provided by team was really amazing and wonderfull. It was one of the best. I would like to make trip once in a year in this resort. Food and place was excellent. Thanks a lot Backwater Retreat Team.
I stayed there for 6 days and the hospitality was excellent, really enjoyed my stay there…
It’s a place suited for my interest, a very calm and cool place. Those who search for it would get no better place than this in kottayam. Its situated at very village like place and there not much buzz around other than the birds and wind which blows across.
