    Good afternoon forum, I am Riya from Mumbai, and I have joined to find out about The Zuri Kumarakom Kerala Resort & Spa.

    I would like to know what kind of rooms they have available and what services and facilities are included in the different rooms.

    I think some rooms have a plunge pool as seen in the pictures of the hotel. Please state which rooms these are.

    What are the Dining Options in the Zuri Kumarakom Kerala Resort & Spa?

    You have a variety of options for dining in the property. This is ideal because once you are in the property, it seems a bit isolated and far off that venturing out for meals can be a hassle.

But generally, being a five-star property, the meals offered in the resort are top notch and well made. The rates might be on the higher side so that's one downside.
