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.

Good hotel, difficult to locate, the locations and scenic view was awesome, the privacy was good, the climate was awesome.

The check-out of the hotel is a con, the resort requested us to check out early based on hotel availability. The cleanliness and the spaciousness of the rooms / villas was incredible.

Food was good, no fun activities involved, facilities were up to the mark and had a good time.

We stayed at the hotel from 23rd Oct to 25th Oct.

Pros:

1. Check-in and check-out were very smooth.

2. The location and ambiance of the hotel is excellent. Lake view was amazing.

3. Hotel is close to Kumarakom which is plus point. Located slightly in remote interiors.

4. Very helpful staff.

5. My family enjoyed the fishing (though we did not catch any).

6. Ample of indoor activities, swimming, TT, different massages, pedal boat, shikara ride (but we did not use any, were interested in outdoor activities).

Cons:

1. Evening snacks were ok but costly.

2. 1st day dinner was ok. 2nd day dinner was good as we ordered typical Dal rice with a paneer kathi roll as starter which was excellent.

3. Bathroom design in lake view room seemed odd and Towels were too worn out and were not new.

4. Very dim lights (which can be Pro for some as it increases the ambiance). But after sometime we felt the lights in hotel and room could have been bright.

Overall, a very good stay and would definitely recommend it :).

Very well made resort. Distant from Alleppey. Not very big. Inside, not on the main road. Took the Backwater ride in Speedboat arranged by resort management for a charge. Was more fun than the traditional boat, at least for us. So we just relaxed since we didn't have to go to Alappuzha.

A good romantic place to live for many days. There are cottage houses and can take any of the house. There is a lake beside to relax and hammocks. Pool to swim and places where we can take nice pictures like a bridge a home in tree, near lake, lying on hammocks, etc. A wonderful and a romantic place for all honeymoon couples.

I stayed in Back Waters Hotel. Location of the hotel was good and easy to reach but it a little far. The interiors and exteriors were good. Check-in and check-out process was done on time at the hotel. Staffs of the hotel were good in providing service. Hotel room provided to me was good and neat and was provided with all basic amenities. Food quality was good in the hotel and varieties were there. I will recommend this hotel to other travellers. I am satisfied with the overall service.

The ambience of the hotel was very good and well furnished by them. There was a bit delay while check-in and check-out process. The room allotted to me was neat with all basic amenities. There was no view from the hotel room. There was a view from the hotel. The food was very good quality and taste. The swimming pool was available in the hotel. The staff were professional and good services. The stay in the hotel was reasonable and I suggest to hotel management should be prove root map because it was difficult to search the hotel so.

I booked rooms in this hotel by phone conversation. Climate was terrible. I travelled to this hotel by my own vehicle. The location of the hotel was good and I did not find any issues in finding the hotel. Very good room was allotted to me. All required amenities were provided to my room in good condition. The food provided to me inside the hotel, it was tasty and good in quality. Staff were good in response to our entire request. Room service was on time. Swimming pool and Ayurvedic massage was available.

Stayed there in April 2015. Very good place to stay. The lake view is very beautiful. Spacious and neat rooms, friendly staffs, hygienic and tasty food. Got a complimentary boating. A must see place in Alleppey. It was little difficult to locate the place but once you enter there, a heaven on earth feel. I strongly suggest this place for families.
