I have stayed at Akkarakalam Memoirs several times, and was there most recently last month with a Hidden Places Travel kayaking tour. As always, the manager Binoy made the visit extra special with his great care, courtesy and attention to detail. The building is a true heritage property, which has been in one family for several generations, and it exudes... More

After a hectic 4 days of touring the mountains of Kerala I arrives in Akkarakalam Memoirs near Alleppey. The setting is tranquility itself - on the banks of a waterway, where, if you wish, you can just sit in the garden shade watching the houseboats chugging up and down the waterway. The manager, Bhinoy, is the soul of courtesy and... More

I enjoyed my stay at Akkarakalam Memoirs very much. It's completely away from the hustle and hassle of the town/city in a heritage home right on the river amid the ricefields. The room was well appointed and comfortable. Excellent hot water! The manager, Binoy, arranged a number of great experiences on the river by boat and walking through the ricefields... More

The highlight of our 5 day vacation to Kerala was our stay at Akkarakalam Memoirs. This was the last day of our trip and we were exhausted from the long drive on pretty bad roads stretching from Munnar to Alleppey. We just wanted to relax for the evening with no agenda and when we arrived at this beautiful, big, charming... More

We stayed three nights and had a lovely and restful time. The service was excellent and the food was a real treat as we were introduced to many new dishes at all of our meals. We will definitely go back.

We stayed for 3 nights in this hotel right on one of the big canals. Service and food at the hotel were excellent and quick, we never had to wait long. We recommend taking a paddle tour on the backwaters instead of a house boat because you get a lot more interaction with the locals. Only negative is that the... More
