Right on vembanad lake, no alcohol, average meals but caring main chef. Not much to do in resort, sikhara ride is a rip off which we avoided. Better to take a tuktuk to govt jetty and then cross over to muhamma. Marari beach is beautiful and so is allepey. Dint try spa. They arranged kalaripayattu at resort which was bonus. Good hammocks and pool. Best for max of 2 nights if you don't want to venture out. Excellent breakfast. Resort tends to make money out of everything. Ex ride to airport is 2800 if done through resort. Outside it is 2200. In allepey only from kutnad is backwaters nice. We paid 1800 for 3 hours ride which included a lunch stop over on a private sikhara boat from allepey city. This is both cheaper and scenic compared to sham 1 hour ride from resort

The Garden View Facing Room was amazing. The food is the best you can have in kerela. Best part is the swimming pool which is clean and is having a direct view of the lake. Staff is very helpful and supportive. The Ayurveda center is very good for massages and can relax at the resort.
The approach to this resort

The approach to this resort gives you a weird feeling as its a very narrow lane in the backwaters of kumarakon but once you enter this property I bet you ll be awestruck. This is probably the best one in the backwaters of kumarakon. Nice big lobby and reception area which has a daily evening live flute performance. Our check-in was smooth. We booked the lake facing cottages and they are the best one in the resort. This hotel offers you boat ride and kayaking for kids on chargeable basis.
I had visited Kumarakom in the month of July 2016. It was my holiday trip with my family people. Kumarakom was very good city & it was a very beautiful city. Hotel is very good in location & very easy to reach & convenient. The ambience was very attractive & well in infrastructure. The reception was very cordial & very polite & cooperative & good in approaching us. Service was not taken from the hotel. Rooms were very spacious & it was well maintained in the interiors & good in accommodation. Food was not taken in the hotel. There was a very good activity like swimming pool & indoor games were good. WiFi facility was there. I booked my stay through online. It was why very comfortable stay & travelers can visit this hotel & can stay very happy.

My stay in the Abad Whispering Palms Lake Resort when I had been to Kumarakom during the month of December 2016. It was my holiday trip with family. The destination Kumarakom was very good as it is comfortable to stay for couple. The hotel location was very good as it is nearest to the market place. I would rate the appearance of the hotel as very good. The staff at the reception was average. I booked this room directly at hotel. I would rate the services in the hotel were good because of availability of service. The hotel room was good with ambience and facilities. The food in the hotel was very good because we can get fresh and tasty food.
Very good stay

The location was very good and suitable for couple and also for the family. The staff are very courteous and in fact we had problem with the door locking in our room which they handled nicely. The food was very good and ambience is also very good. Surely I will suggest this place to all my friends.
