Client Rating for India 5/5 from 130 reviews

We were feeling a bit sad leaving the houseboat until we were dropped off at Coconut Lagoon. The bungalow was excellent and we had some delicious food here. They were very proud of their eco credentials here and there were some lovely birds and butterflies around the resort. Good pool too. A very comfortable stop-off
