No words to describe this place. It's a real heaven. Place, ambience, courteous staff, amenities, facilities, you ask for it and it's all there. We stayed for three days but I feel it should have been more. Boat ride, Ayurveda centre, swimming pool we enjoyed everything to max. Food is just awesome. If you are looking for authentic Kerala experience then this is the place. Go and enjoy!

We have booked 4 rooms and it's the same room decor whether it's garden villa, heritage or lake villa. Lake villa aren't private pool villas they are being accessed by all the other people in the hotel so, don't shell extra booking in the lake villa. Not a place for destination celebrations. It's a place for couple and relaxation but not kids.

We decided to package a surprise for 60th birthday of my father in law by sending him to serene Kerala. But little he knew that his daughter and son with their spouses would land him a surprise visit to alleppey which was there 3rd holiday spot after munnar and kochi. But when we entered punnamada we were all taken aback by its sheer grandeur by the first look itself.

We had a tensed journey as kerala was stricken by the Nationwide strike called bu National Unions and some parts of kerala being communist had made things tough for the taxi clan.

But it all unfolded into a beautiful welcome at the punnamada hospitable staff. Mind you due to strike most of the staff was absent but we were put to ease by a glass of cold mango juice while we checked in. We were booked in waterfront villa for the parents and 2 duplex villa 202 ans 203 for us. And they were simply majestic. A cozy living room having sofa set with all channel TV, AC and ethnic look door with window beside to check on the visitor like the old palatial doors. The next best area is the bathroom with open to sky space along with marble stone bathroom floor that seep thru the water you use during the shower. The bath accessories are of natural origin right from the bath big bucket and mug made of copper, and toiletries of natural extract. The partition too of coir to curtail the open space for privacy when needed.

As u exit the bath u find a staircase that take you to ur bedroom. A wash basin is neatly provided in case you need a wash and dont want to go a level down to bath for it unlike all other hotels. Very thoughtful i must say.

The bedroom is very spacious with huge center bed, with all modern. Amenitieis one can ask for and of course the huge window space as a villa balcony that provide pool. As well. As long shot at the Mighty Vembenad lake.

The resort is just along this beautiful. Backwaters that captivates your imagination and leaves you spell bound. Right from the vegetation to the well cured plantations and the huge banyan that sports a. Hammock to the lazing chairs to view the lake along with your deep thoughts that would be relaxed soon.

I loved the authentic kerala ayurvedic massage of one hour that was pure class rejuvenation of entire self.

It was one of my best holidays

We had a one night stay in lake view villa the time we had there was very peaceful and relaxing and the food was good but expensive for Indian standards. We had a massage in the Ayurveda center which was excellent and hope to return to do a full 7 day package. The yoga lesson was also excellent.

I have visited Punnamada Resort at Alappuzha (Alleppey) during Nehru Boat Race. It is amazing place next to lake with beautiful ambiance. The rooms are traditionally built. I like the hospitality and authentic food.

Amenities: They have a pool and lake near by.

Spa service is good with authentic Ayurvedic massages

We stayed in Lake View Villa at Punnamada Resort to celebrate our vacation. The resort is eco friendly and surrounded with water and greenery where ever you see. Our Villa was very spacious and the view of the Vembanad Lake was awesome. The interiors were modern with classical touch. We loved just sitting in the veranda on the bamboo chairs and watch the houseboats and canoes passing through. There was no sound pollution as our room was on the lake front. We saw small streams passing through the resort and wooden bridges over it.

We had our lunch in the Choola restaurant at the resort. They had ample varieties of vegetarian dishes for us. We loved the authentic Kerala Ela Sadhya they served on the Banana leaf for us and it had Avial, Kootu Curry, Kaalan, Olan, Thoran, Parippu, Sambar, Rasam, Pulissery, Pappad, Mango Pickle and Ladies finger Pachadi. Ada Payasam was the special dessert we enjoyed there.

We were informed about the evening sunset cruise. They served us Banana Fritters and Tea from their Thattukada before the cruise. The tea was prepared in traditional style in a Samovar. We enjoyed the snacks in the lawn near the lake in front of the restaurant. The evening cruise was arranged on a shikara. We saw the SAI sports centre, Nehru trophy finishing point and the staff explained the things to us.

Next morning we took part in the yoga session which was lead by a trained master. It was complimentary with our stay. Overall our stay went very nicely. The staff were very helpful. We wanna go and stay at Punnmada Resort in coming holidays too.

Awesome location and best place to visit in Alleppey backwaters. Good food and good place. To be must visit with partners for honeymoon or any thing. Overall the place was the best off all in my Kerala stay. I suggest many people to stay over there and when comes to price use MMT or Goibibo for beat prices and coupons of all.

Calm and serene place to relax with family, very friendly staff. Food is awesome even though a little heavy to pocket. Lots of activity to do, like cycling, boating and various indoor games for the night. Reaching the place is little tedious, but worth the visit, a good location to enjoy a short vacation.

We had a couple of room booked by our friend for his marriage at the resort.

Extremely thankful to him as otherwise I would have never got a chance to experience the resort, it being so close to where I live and very expensive as well :P.

We checked in late at night once all our friends arrived from the airport. The staff was very professional and prompt in their service, though we would not have cared for those as we were all bachelors set to enjoy our night.

The lawns and the buildings were made in traditional Kerala style. The best part of the hotel is its proximity to the Vembanad lake, situated nearby the starting point, very scenic in itself. One can view the houseboats passing by, and the local small boats, which is a sight to enjoy at alleppey.

They also had houseboats, and got one arranged for sightseeing for our friends as well at the last moment. Overall very helpful bunch of people.

I stayed at this resort for few days and I have no words to express how nice the destination, staff, service, food, ambiance is. This is by far my best experience of the life and I would strongly recommend everyone who is planning a Kerala vacation to stay at this place. It is worth every penny they are charging. I would like to stay there again and again. I also took up ayurveda package with Punnamada resort and I did yoga with a personal instructor who taught me sincerely various aasan that I am able to perform by myself. This visit was a complete transformation for me.
