Where to stay in Kumarakom

Despite its heavy reliance on tourism, Kumarakom offers surprisingly few accommodations, with just a handful of resorts sitting near the lakeshore. You can find a larger selection of places to stay in Likkalam, a short drive to the south. If resorts fall outside your budget, look for small guesthouses and holiday rentals, which offer basic amenities and a friendly, comfortable atmosphere. No matter where you stay, you'll never be too far from the water, with many accommodations also offering swimming pools.
