We Stayed here between 4th to 7th March 2015.Though Distance between Kochi-Alleppey is not too much but due to Construction works for Kochi Metro took around 2.5 Hours to reach resort Pickup location. As resort pick up is 6 KM from Kochi Town please make sure you discuss with Taxi driver while booking taxi to avoid any further issues. Once... More

We stayed here from the 6th of march to the 9th and completely enjoyed ourselves. Getting to the hotel from Kochi airport takes about 2 hours by car, so plan your flights accordingly. its advisable to have your taxi driver speak to the reception desk before you start your journey from the airport to save some time. You have to... More

Citrus retreat is an excellent property with very courteous staff. They have added attractions to keep the guests engaged like sunset view, house boat, fishing, dance show during dinner. The food was also good, cook was kind enough to interact and understand any particular need. Buffett spread was very good. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

This little resort was truly the antidote we needed after a hectic and exhilarating trip through the north of India (including an Indian wedding). The rooms are well presented, the staff are friendly and exceptionally helpful, the food in their restaurant is delightful and extra requests full-filled. There could be improvements done around the pool area, and the water temperature... More

The location is fabulous, but unfortunately the hotel standards let this place down. Tables were dirty, and not wiped, the bathroom had mould and dirt, the patio doors were dirty with pigeon droppings outside. A real pity, because the location is picture postcard looking out over the paddy fields, and backwaters. We didn't eat there at night, decided against it,... More
