It was my son's birthday on 25-12-14 and he came up with a last minute request of going and staying somewhere. As it is the peak holiday time, it was either very expensive to book any resort or sold out. Then I came across Kovilakom Lakeside Villa through Tripadvisor.com and by going through the earlier review I zeroed down to... More

We stayed at the Kovilakam Lakeside Villa on the 13th and 14th of November 2014. As always, the place was picked after a lot of research on tripadvisor and needless to say, it was the right choice once again. What a property! - I should say, overlooking the Vembanad lake and providing you such a great feel of the Venice... More

We stayed here for a few days at the end of a cycling trip with Kalypso adventures. It is in a wonderful location next to the lake. The gardens are beautiful and are tended daily. The accommodation is very comfortable. We stayed in the bungalow next to the lake. Anish is an amazing host and his care and attention to... More

The location of the hotel is what makes it awesome with peaceful view of backwater. The staff is very friendly and co-operating in every regard. The hospitality will make you feel at home. Rooms are good and kept clean. Mr. Anish arranged very delicious homely food and on a total we had a comfortable stay here.

We had a fantastic time during our stay, extending it from two nights to three. Anish, the manager, went all out to ensure our stay was comfortable, making sure we got a full taste of the local delicacies (we gorged on local fish, curries, appams and malabar parathas), booking autos or taxis (even doing it for us when we had...

Most people who travel to the backwaters around Alleppey are there only for the overnight house boat cruises. Others who want to stay a little longer usually choose Kumarakom as it is the most widely known place in the area and thats where all the high end resorts like Kumarakom Lake resort, Taj and Zuri are located. The more modest... More

I spent three days and nights in the Kovilakam lakeside villa in Alappuzha with my family during the last week of Dec 2012. The location is a picture post card in itself and the resort boasts of all the modern amenities yet retains the looks of ancient Kerala houses from the outside unlike a bustling hotel. The place is so... More

We stayed in Kovilakam for three nights in the lakeside room and our stay was pleasant. Rooms were clean and wonderful hospitality with delicious home-made food. The caretaker(Anish) was very helpful and suggested places to visit. Kumarokon is just a ferry ride and can plan for a house-boat stay/ride. Our overall experience was excellent and we will visit again...
