Guest reviews of Lake n River from Tripadvisor

“Amazing place don't miss this one!!!!”

From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty.The service was fantastic with the owners and staff looking after us expectionally well

“Take care, you might stay much longer than expected”

There you can do so many things. One day we climbed onto some coconut trees of the resort and had them as a refreshing drink.

“Relaxing hideaway”

I stayed for three nights and loved it! The main reason is not the stunning tours through the back waters, or the swimming in the lake, or relaxing the day away in the hammock in blissful surroundings

Paradise Found

I don't want to write this review. This place is paradise and I don't want lots of other people discovering it and spoiling its beauty and tranquility. I've been backpacking for three weeks in towns, cities and villages and was supposed to be here just one night but ended up staying for three - I'd have stayed longer if I could. Location. It is an idyllic spot, on the side of the huge Ashtamudi Lake and a river. Coconut trees have hammocks strung between them. In the morning you open the curtains to see lots of birds outside your window,

“Peaceful experience!”

Lake n River is one of the best hotels I have stayed in across India. The ambience is very peaceful and relaxing .. where you can hear the soft ripples of waters from the Kallada river and Ashtamudi lake.

“Loved this place!”

Lake N River is beautifully located at the convergence of a river and lake (hence the name!).

Gem of the backwaters

We booked this last minute but what a find! Amazing location right on the lake and river. Beautiful surroundings, hammocks among the coconut trees

An escape to the backwaters ”

The stay at lake n river was amazing and extended again by the lovely warmth of the place,it wasa very nice pleasant stay

“Booked for one night ended up staying 6!!”

A real haven for people seeking non commercialised paradise. The views around the hotel are truly amazing with the lake on one side and river on the other, here you can see much wildlife, Eagles, kingfisher (not the beer) Cormorants, kites etc and even Otters(sea dogs)feed here.

“Wonderful Munroe Experience”

Mesmerizing breeze in the evenings from lakeside which we enjoyed most.

“Pleasant stay in the middle of nature”

“Beautiful and tranquil..Lake n River!!”

“Hidden gem in Kollam”

“Excellent place to relax”

“Forget Kollam, head straight to Munroe island! ”

Lake n river is by far the best hotel we've stayed in during our trip to India! The staff are so friendly and will make you feel right at home. They even arranged a barbecue for me on Saint Patrick's day so I could celebrate such a special day so far from Ireland ! Thanks again to all the staff, we hope to visit again some day

Nice place with great views and even more potential

“Really great stay, pretty much perfect!”

Munroe island is a special place and this resort is positioned in a beautiful location next to Ashmudi lake and a river so the views are stunning. I cant explain how peaceful it was and the staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. The keralan food is excellent and great value and the tours were really interestingIf you are passing through kollam be sure to stop at lake n river you wilk not regreat it.

“A perfect retreat with scenic location, great food and wonderful staff!”

The rooms are very clean and the staff is very friendly and hospitable, taking care of all your personal needs. The food here is a MUST try, it is mouth watering and is cooked very hygienically, and the price is reasonable. I would recommend this resort to anyone planning to stay at Kollam

“Beautiful location, wonderful staff”

It's on a little finger of land, with the lake on two sides and the river on a third side. With practically no neighbors, it was peaceful and quiet beyond belief - so much so that we found ourselves whispering. The resort has large, clean rooms, windows practically floor to ceiling, a dedicated staff (including a talented chef!), and plenty to see. This is really a place for lovers of natural beauty and those looking for peace and quiet. There are hammocks, a stunning sunset over the lake, and many different birds. We saw storks, Brahminy Kites during their migration to India, cormorants, kingfishers, and much more. During one of our days there, we went for a canoe trip with Vishnu, a local guide

“Off the beaten track, in the middle of nature and thoroughly up to date”

We stayed here for 7 nights and have nothing but praise for Lake n River, its owners, its staff and the beautiful Munroe Island. Where to start?
