The Leela Ashtamudi, A Raviz Hotel

This heritage hotel stands on the banks of the Ashtamudi Lake, an enchanting locale and Kerala’s second largest and deepest wetland ecosystem. With pristine white walls, red tiled roofs and expansive verandahs, the hotel is built in the traditional Kerala nalukettu style and has coconut trees standing sentinel all around. Embark on boat rides through lush mangroves, explore ecologically significant wetlands, and catch glimpses of life on the serene lake with fishing and native canoe boats. 

Enjoy bewitching sunset views to the flickering of oil lamps lit at dusk. Get a glimpse of Kerala’s culture with folk music or classical South Indian dance programs. Dine on the lake at the fairytale floating restaurant and retire to bed with the sound of water lapping in your ears. The Leela Ashtamudi, a Raviz Hotel is more than a stay - it’s where luxury, nature and heritage converge to meet Kerala’s soulful rhythm.
