Peaceful stay at the Backwaters

Posted 16 Feb, 2016

We had been there during Feb 2015. Although, the hotel is in a very isolated location, it does come with a host of advantages. Situated right on the Lake Vembanad, the first thing that strikes is the wonderful view of the lake that this hotel offers. You can spend days by the pool, overlooking the lake listening to the winds and birds and seeing the houseboats go about their routine. The reception of the hotel is unique and has very Keralite charm to it with the way they have decorated it with flowers, to elephants, majestic lamps and tray of spices to let you know of the heritage. The food quality was excellent and since we were there on Valentine's Day, they had made a special candle light dinner arrangement for few extra bucks. The experience was just wonderful. A sure go to place!!

Great hotel, great food with lots of activities

Posted 23 Jun, 2016

Well I liked the resort a lot. Right next to the backwaters of Alleppey, good rooms, great food especially north indian food. The chef of the hotel restaurant came out to take my special request for food which I loved a lot. First time in Kerala I was having food which had proper punjabi taste to it. Had lots of animals around like rabbits, hens, birds, turtles plus a ostrich as well. Gave us bicycles to ride in the morning, and the resort of huge as well so that you can roam around as well. Excellent pool plus good cottage like rooms. Overall a nice experience and would strongly recommend.

Excellent resort with ultimate hospitality

Posted 5 Feb, 2016

Undoubtedly, one of the best resorts in Alleppey. I booked through Makemytrip with a very good discount on room rates and complimentary breakfast. The rooms were big with all required amenities. Good welcome by the reception along with welcome drink. The resort is located right on the banks of the famous Vembanad lake with lovely surroundings. The resort has a nice pool overlooking the lake. We were offered a complimentary half an hour boat ride in the lake which was great. The room service was quite prompt and the Kerala fish dishes were very delicious. However, in the breakfast menu it needs a bit of improvement. The resort is very beautiful and peaceful. Great place to relax. They also have a very good spa and massage service at reasonable price along with gym facility.

Heaven by the lake; best hotel in Alappuzha

Posted 13 Sep, 2014

This was the best hotel in my 8 day trip. It’s not a hotel; it’s a resort, which is far beyond your expectations. On our way from Thekkady, Alleppey was our next stop and we travelled by road, stopping at certain points and then moving to the resort. Resort is located far west end of Alleppey, but it directly connected via road and is easily accessible. This resort is spread across a huge landscape, with villas, rooms, and independent cottages. The entrance is grand, with lot of beautiful items placed neatly. The staffs are polite, helpful and provide all the information. They have a swimming pool just adjacent to the lake and the sea, the lake is like 3 feet down from the ending wall of this resort. Shikara's are parked right beside the pool area. They got bicycles to ride within the resort area, simple badminton net. The view at evening and night is lovely. You got nice place to park your side near the pool, you can have your lunch in open air near the pool or inside the restaurant, which has a view directly of the lake. The open air seating is best during breakfast. The dinner was good, not exquisite, but doable. Breakfast was disappointing. Since this resort came in as part of our package, we really got almost half the cost for the hotel. I would really love going to this place once again.
