If you mention River Escapes to hoteliers in the Alleppey region they'll say something like "oh, I hear they have nice boats". And they do. They're spic and span clean and the rooms (and ensuite bathrooms) are like nice hotel rooms. You won't be disappointed when you step on to your boat. We had 4 staff on our 2 bedroom... More

Arrived around lunchtime, was quite hard to find but that's normal for India the Tuk Tuk drivers never seem to know where they are going but always find their way in the end!

We spent two nights on a backwater cruise with river escapes and there isn't anything that comes to mind that I would change. Based on reviews by others, I requested a boat with an upstairs deck and it was fabulous. We spent most of our time up there. The captain, crew and chef were great, although their English was limited... More
