Came here with our cycle kayak your with Kalypso adventures . It is a spacious if dark venue right on the backwaters . The food was fine but it was all a bit dated. They could have done more with the huge rice store in the middle . Very relaxing and a great place to kayak from Neil Rushton

Situated right on the backwaters we did see the... More

We had taken the train from Cochin to Alleppy which had got delayed and so we arrived late and tired. The location of this property is a considerable way from the town and we were glad that we had heeded previous advice from Trip Advisor to take a proper taxi rather than a tuc tuc, particularly as it was very...

Stayed here for one night. The place is away from highway. Being first time visitors we had to search. Management confirmed our food preferences and arranged for as per our requirments.

We stayed 2 nights in this place; it is in a remote locality,16KM away from the Allepy town. You will not get anything nearby. My 6 year old son had food poisoning after taking dinner here and he started having loose motion and vomitting in the middile of the night. I called Mr. Binoy, the manager; he told us that... More

I stayed at Akkarakalam Memoirs just for a night. I felt I should have stayed atleast a day more. But even that short stay was made quite memorable by Mr Binoy and his team. He was kind enough to call me up before my arrival and checked my lunch arrangements. The atmosphere at the property made me nostalgic and took... More

The hotel is set in a pristine location on the banks of Alappuzha backwaters. First impression of the place is the welcoming staff. The manager who runs the place and the staff are very helpful from the first call made. However, the price of the place is quiet on the high side. But since the hotel accommodates a handful of...

Binoy and staff were very helpful. Nothing was too much trouble they arranged kayaking(wooden) ,walking ,sunset cruise and fishing. They have bikes you can use and we enjoyed exploring the area. The building is beautiful on the side of the water with a lovely veranda , our accommodation was comfortable. The banana curry was amazing.
