Liked the location. Disliked the lack of food choices, lack of a bar despite advertising a min bar in room and overall slow pace of service.

The property itself is great because of the location. We were not happy with the staff responses. Asked for some extra glasses and kept us waiting for ever. Then the quality of food was a disaster. I have stayed in few properties in Kumarakom and this was the worst.

A rejuvenating weekend
Abad Whispering Palms is as pretty a place as it looks from the pictures. Didnt have much complains in terms of the rooms and service. They maintained a very high level However in room dining was not up to standards. The food was cold and not very tasty. But on the other hand, the buffet offerings were very good Not many places come to mind where one can wakeup to an amazing view and open your door to see ducks quacking and trotting along
