Nestled in the secluded backwaters of the magnificent Ashtamudi Lake in Kollam, the Raviz Resort & Spa, Ashtamudi is the perfect blend of modern architecture and traditional art of Kerala. Traditional artisans, architects, engineers and waterway specialists were engaged in designing a 'Heaven' in God's Own Country.
Situated 70 kms away from the airport at Thiruvananthapuram and cradled along long stretches of backwaters, the hotel welcomes the guests for an unforgettable experience in the lap of nature.
Ashtamudi meaning 'Eight coned' in the local language of Malayalam is indicative of the lake's topography - a lake with multiple branches and is called as the gateway to the backwaters of Kerala. With unhurried surroundings and tranquil Ashtamudi Backwaters, a red carpet is unrolled here to welcome every guest with the warmth of traditional and festive Kerala.
To ensure a comfortable and memorable stay, all rooms and suites are intricately designed, traditionally decorated & equipped with all modern facilities. The WelcomHotel Raviz Kollam, Kerala is equipped with 93 rooms including 9 suites and cottages. Leisure vacations at the hotel are characterized by peaceful interludes offered through charming cruises on Lake Ashtamudi and the backwaters. Kettuvallam, the traditional Kerala houseboat is ideal for a small get together and private dining; the menus varying from authentic Kerala cuisine to Italian, continental and Chinese. The resort offers well appointed conferencing options and outdoor venues ideal for weddings, celebrations, corporate events, banquets and events of all kinds.
A relaxed stroll on a specially created jogging track, exploring the backwaters in a traditional Kerala Houseboat 'Kettuvallom' and a visit to the holistic Ayurveda Spa would purify your mind, body and soul. The Ayurveda spa at the resort includes over 12 luxuriously appointed treatment rooms, each overlooking lake Ashtamudi and offers a host of traditional and international treatments with modern equipment.
The centre, which is 'Green Leaf certified' (the highest rating for Ayurveda facilities given by government of Kerala) caters to both rejuvenating and curative treatments, as well as Ayurveda massages.
A unique characteristic of the Raviz Resort and Spa, Ashtamudi is its ability to create customized floating experiences through its traditional houseboats. Raanthal is a large boat that serves as a floating restaurant and is one-of-a-kind banquet option for hosting social events and parties for a charming riverside cruise affair.
The hotel is truly an enviable place, especially as a wedding destination. The gourmet traveller on a gastronomic excursion can pamper the palate with sumptuous traditional delicacies. WelcomCafe Lakeside, an all-day-dining restaurant and a Chinese specialty restaurant Shanghai Club ensure that all culinary feasts are catered to with care.
