I've stayed in a number of outstanding boutique properties around the world, but few come close to matching the surreal beauty of Purity at Lake Vembanad. It's a bit of a hike to get there- a solid two hours by car from Kochi International Airport (the last 10 minutes of which are through a tiny village that will have you... More

We went as a group to celebrate a friends 40th and we had the most awesome time. This place is indeed magical. The decor uses Kerala architecture mixed with modern influences and sensibilities. The design ethic is beautiful and the attention to detail delightful. The rooms are spacious and wonderful - the whole space has such a good aura that... More

Was there in March. Absolutely magical. A small stunning hotel. Will never forget the first morning walking into the beautiful garden and being stopped by the shear beauty of the lake the colours of the water and peace. Just birds. This apparently was out of season and we were the only ones in the hotel. It however had been very... More

We stayed here, as a couple last year and wanted to bring our friends with whom we were staying nearby this year. And again, the food, service and overall experience was excellent. An absolute must if you're staying in the area.

We travelled to India via Dubai and arrived early morning quite tired. What a wonderful welcome we received and how quickly we relaxed in this lovely place. The rooms were first class as was the food. We only were able to stay for one day because we had arranged to be collected by a houseboat at the hotel the following... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in the 1st floor suite which was extremely spacious with a bathroom bigger than a lot of rooms we have stayed in in other hotels. The location is perfect overlooking the lake and with a Chinese fishing net just along from the hotel we were able to see the nets working. Although we had... More

Lovely, lovely place on Lake Vembanad on the Kerala backwaters. If it is available stay in the Vembanad suite, the whole 1st (top) floor of the charming original building, which is spacious and elegant with lovely antique furniture and lots of quirky spaces. Gardens run down to the lake and are an idyllic place to laze away the day or... More

I echo most of the previous reviewers. I wondered about our destination as we turned off the main road onto one sandy track after another. The warm welcome + drinks from the receptionist, followed by the enchanting walk to our room over the stepping stones across the pool in the courtyard, through the arch then THE VIEW! It was a...

The setting is just magical and the rooms stylish, user friendly and very comfortable. All the facilities are excellent and I can't think of an area in which they could improve. Perhaps the only 'very' slight failing is that if you want to find any staff before 7.30am it's almost impossible. We tended to rise at 6.30am to watch the... More
