Kadmat Beach Resort Reviews
If you are looking for clean beach, large lagoons, good hospitality, Scuba diving up to 12 meters, less public and have spirit & proud for India definitely you don't have to look for outside India, it's here in India- Lakshadweep. It's a union territory having approx 14 islands, out of it for tourist and overnight stay 3 islands are available - Kadmat, Bangaram, Thinnakara. Alcohol is strictly prohibited here, this thing might be negative point for some tourist, but for good place definitely you can bargain. How to go: by Air India service from Kochi airport. Lakshadweep got airport at Agatti island, from there we have to go by speedboat to resort, it will take 5 hrs from Agatti to Kadmat. But I'm sure all tiredness will go after seeing the Kadmat Resort. Better have antiemetic before board journey. Kadmat resort : It's on south side of island, its habituated island, most of population is Muslim, very kind and helpful. Resort has very good food facility and other water sports like scuba, snorkeling, kayaking etc, paragliding not available when I went as boat is under repairing work. You can do cycling throughout island as island is around 11 km long. And the main thing is beauty of nature, definitely it may energize your mind, but for that don't be in resort go through whole island. Dress: as people custom it's better to wear long short and t-shirts for girls if possible, as culture not used to for bikini, kindly respect the culture. Price: around 50000 for 4 days and 3 nights. Other islands: Bangaram and Thinnakara, its unhabituated islands, you might not get good facilities as Kadmat but beauty of nature is preserved and you can swim through large lagoon with big turtles sometimes. Mosquitoes are so much in Thinnakara bathroom, don't know about Bangaram. I think you will get better facility at Bangaram but want to be alone on beach go for Thinnakara. Bangaram to Agatti airport will take 2hrs by boat and 1 hour by speedboat. Just for knowledge : From above first 9 photos from Kadmat, 10-11 from Bagaram, rest Thinnakara.
The resort is run by department of SPORTS. The resort is located to the southern tip of the island and has access to the lagoon on both east and west cost. One can walk from the east coast to the west coast through the resort area within 2 mins. The beach has pristine white sand and the water is crystal clear. The resort staff are very friendly and ready to attend to all our needs. Most of the staff can manage to speak little bit of English and Hindi. Malayalam is a more commonly spoken languages. The resort has both AC and non AC rooms. The AC cottages have direct access to the beach. A permit is required to visit the Kadmat island. Booking a stay at the Kadmat Beach Resort ensured a permit from SPORTS. The coral gardens around the Kadmat island are best locations for Scuba diving and Snorkelling.
It was very enjoyable stay here with my friends. I found the hotel well-maintained in terms of facility and cleanliness. The room was well equipped with all the required amenities and electrical appliances. It was also spacious and very comfortable. The bathroom with full glass walls was a nice concept. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
Hotel was located conveniently. The food was taste and hygienic. The staff were quick hygienic and friendly. I did not face any problem in finding this hotel. This was located near to the beach. There was no delay in check-in and check-out. The appearance of the hotel was not too traditional it was average. The room was spacious, neat, clean and well-maintained and all the amenities were in good working condition. The wash room was maintained hygienically. We had a beach view form the room. The food tasted well and varieties were available. There were many sports activities and I would like to recommend this hotel for other travellers.
A well kept resort with a beautiful interior as well as exterior. Hotel is splendiferously decorated. The staff is so nice, the food is so nice and the beauty outside the hotel is tempting. The rooms are spacious and well maintained. The ambiance of the hotel is just awesome. Amazing experience!
A well-kept resort with a beautiful interior as well as exterior. Hotel is splendiferously decorated. Size of the room is also good. Great ambiance and good vibes. The food is fantastic from room service to the restaurant at the hotel. Although the service could have been more professional and polished.
The hotel has just moved me by it's overall excellent performance. The staff is so nice, the food is also so nice and the beauty outside the hotel is tempting. The hotel is very well-located and the destination is also awesome. Whole hotel is very well cleaned and the people are nice. Only the activities is not up to the mark of other facilities.
No one should ever dream to be here, journey is not safe, 5 hrs by ordinary boat in rough sea. Nothing to eat on the island. They give you limited food which is absolutely meagre. We ate beet root and carrot vegetable for 2 days. We got strangled due to rough weather and nobody to help us out. Have to arrange for helicopter rescue paying from our own pockets. Please be cautious. They promise you speed boat drive but it is never there. It is hell, please do not ever think of visiting.
The hotel is conveniently located near to the city area. The appearance of the hotel from the outside as well as from the inside is good. The staff is friendly, helpful and quick and they give good services to the guests. The rooms are spacious, neat and well-maintained and all the amenities and the bed linen provided in them are in good working condition. The hotel has food facilities for the guests.The check-in and check-out is on time. Overall, it is a good hotel and good value for the money paid and recommendable to others people who wish to visit that place.
The experience with Kadmat Beach Resort and it is awesome. The location of the resort is purely natural and could attract anyone. The blue water lagoon is encircling the invaluable organisms in the sea. The colorful corals, coral habitats are very awesome and besides this the resort staff service, the food is truly appreciable.
Top Reviews of Kadmat Beach Resort
Trip to Lakshadweep - Kadmat Island was our Honeymoon Trip (Really thank for my wife for suggesting and insisting the place). Kadmat Island Resort is the best option and perfect value for money ... Lakshadweep package provided by SPORTS. About the Resort ------------------- Resort is at the southern end of the Kadmat island which about 10 kms long and average wide of 0.5 km (Looks like straight line from top). Resort provides A/C and non A/C accomodation @ INR 4000/- & INR 3000/- per night per couple. Room was spacious with attached bathroom. Rating would be average. They have decent bedding and furniture but good enough to crash after a good day-long water sport activities. Room Service is good. The resort also has a modern gym with table-tennis, Badminton court, threadmills, weights, so on. (We assumed the accomodation at Kadmat would be horrible. So we booked only 3 days in Kadmat and final honeymoon day in Agatti island. But Agatti resort was sheer waste of Rs 10,000/- We could have stayed for 2 more days at Kadmat instead) Best part of Kadmat package is that following water sport activities are included (free cost with the accomodation) - Kayaking - Guided Snorkelling - Snorkelling Kit - Glass Bottom Boat Trip - Local Kadmat island SightSeeing - Local Folk Dancing Night Agatti charges you for anything and everything. Staff & Locals --------------- Staff at Kadmat island resort are very cheerful, friendly. Local language is Malayalam. But they speak good English and Hindi. We had excellent snorkelling guide (Mr. Ali - Lakshadweep national level swimmer), who took us into some deep lagoons and showed some amazing aquatic life around the coral reefs. (We both are no swimmers) Staff were really helpful and flexible. Just for us, they rescheduled the folk dancing and late night barbecue by 1 day advance, as we were leaving the next day. Local sightseeing trip was also great. Trip involves visiting local factories (coconut powder and coir making small scale industry) and a drive to the northern tip of the island. Food & Drink -------------- Well, bad news for drinking folks.... alcohol is strictly prohibited in the island (Island has almost 100% Muslim population. Drink is allowed only at Bangaram). You can try some luck and get some early morning toddy (coconut liquor). Trust us it tastes amazing and really refreshing. You need to step out into the island early in the morning and look out for toddy-maker climbing some coconut tree. Food served at the resort is average. (compared to Agatti). But, its not really bad. Best thing, I liked was a good complete breakfast. Do request for spicy local fish curry with rice cooked with coconut milk. (It\'s a really firework. Do have a running water tap next to you). Sightseeing & Activities --------------------------- Fresh beautiful virgin island with brillant bright blue-green sea. Excellent Sunset/Sunrise. (For first two days, we were just 3 couples at the resort.) You have a lot of foreign tourists (esp. sea divers) visiting the island. You walk around the village and enjoy the island life. Must to do is Snorkelling. It is different world out there. Find colorful fishes like clown fish, parrot, surgeon fish, butterfly around the coral reef. Unfortunately, most of corals were bleached by the El Nino effect. But there were few fresh corals growing out on the dead reefs. If you are lucky, you might catch up with some turtles/sting ray. Scuba-Diving - it is not part of SPORTS package. It is managed by a separate sea-diving organization called Laccadives. We did try an introductory dive for about 20-25 mins. It was a fanastatic experience. Introductory Dive is about INR 1200 per person. An experience instructor accompanies you and manages all the SCUBA controls and tows you around the lagoon. The experience to be completely submerged under water is excellent. Quite different from snorkelling. One can also enrol into certification diving course provided by Laccadives. Deep-Sea Fishing- One can rent a boat for about INR 3000/- for some deep sea fishing. (We did not try fishing.) How to reach Kadmat ------------------------ We took IA flight from Kochi (you have kingfisher flight too) till Agatti island and paid SPORTS for Speed-boat transfer till Kadmat island. Speed Boat trip is about 2 hrs between the two islands. Alternate mode till Agatti from Kochi would be a ship (24 hrs journey... folks with sea-sickness please avoid. Guests at kadmat who took the ship gave some bad review about the entire endless journey) Booking --------- SPORTS (Society for Promotion of Nature Tourism & Sports) manages all the booking Visit http://www.lakshadweeptourism.com for more details
Hi all, I travelled to Kadmat in the Marine Wealth Awareness package. On the whole this was my best vacation. However the journey from Cochin to Kadmat and back by ship is nightmarish. There was only sitting A/C accomodation on a my small ship (called M.V Minicoy) and I got sea sick. I spent 3 nights on the island in a Non-A/C cottage. The rooms are basic but very clean. The people at the resort treat you like family, are very nice and try thier best to make you feel special. The beaches are straight out of a picture postcard. Kayaking, scuba diving, banana boat riding, water skeing and snorking were the activities available. There was no wind for para-sailing. The water is transparent, beaches have white sand and are very clean unlike anywhenre in mainland India. The lagoon and the sea have vibrant shades of blue. On the whole, a good vacation, it was \'value for money\'. The ratings I have given are keeping in mind the money I paid for the package. (So if I give 7 for overall service at Kadmat resort and say 7 for Taj Palace, the 2 ratings cannot be compared beacuse I don\'t pay the same amount of money at both the places, hope this makes sense)
It was a government property. When I traveled to Agatti then I stayed Kadmat Beach Resort. Location was best. Look wise, it was okay. Staff behavior was helpful and friendly. Rooms were neat and clean. Food was delicious. Hospitality was perfect. Whatever we ordered, we got that immediately and staff was excellent. Booking and front office service were perfect. Agatti is a best as tourist destination. I went there in the month of April. It was couple stay. It was a romantic trip.
Hi, me and my girlfriend have just returned from a trip to Lakshadweep, where we stayed at Kadmat. In short, DON\'T STAY AT KADMAT BEACH RESORT! We booked the stay via a travel agent how booked through SPORTS (Lakshadweep Tourism). We flew in and out of from Agatti Island. The first night we stayed at a “home stay” in the middle of Agatti Island (so no beach at the place). The rooms was OK, the food was poor and the location dreadful (you want to see the sea when you stay at a bounty island). The following day we where transported to Kadmat Island by boat. The trip took 5 hours (3,5 hours actual sailing + delays + drive to the jetty etc). We had booked an NON-AC room. This is located 2km away the actual resort in horrible huts at a beach where you can’t swim. You have to bus to the main resort to swim, eat, etc etc. So DON’T BOOK THE NON-AC ROOMS! The actual Kadmat Island Beach Resort has the greatest location - at the tip of Kadmat Island, with a beach to each side and the very tip of the island! Beautiful! However, the resort is \'government run\' with all the worst effects of this; the place is extremely mismanaged with a lot of staff doing almost nothing and giving poor service! The huts are fair standard, but poorly cleaned with old furniture. And there is no hot water in the shower. All dining is included in the stay (Breakfast, lunch and dinner, all indian), and the quality is fair. But there is no alternative i.e. no other restaurants, so if you get hungry between the meals or if you don\'t like the food, then THOUGH LUCK. All servings is inside in a in freezing AC room, and not outside next to the beautiful beach where it should. This might be because the local policeman and politician are eating at the resort at-least for one meal every day. The staff is more concerned to service them than the guests! I never stayed at a place with a HIGHER potential and a LOWER standard!
Beautiful holiday.I could stay there much longer.Rooms simple but clean.
