Editor's Review

The Deshadan backwater resort has neat and spacious rooms. The view of the Vembanad Lake from the resort is beautiful. The restaurant offers Indian and Chinese dishes that are just okay. The resort provides boat-ride activities which are its highlight and guests must try them. It can be difficult to get to this resort. While the resort property is not extremely well-maintained, it provides a very peaceful environment where you can completely relax.
