If you are looking for a place to relax and to enjoy the landscape of the backwaters of Kerala then this is it. This traditional Kerala house or Tharavadu will almost give you a feel of a private villa with private garden with a jetty on the lake. You can enjoy the surrounding greenery and the vastness of Lake Vembanad... More

Kovilakam is certainly a premium experience. Located close to the Muhamma Boat Jetty Ms Leela John ensures all guests leave with a plan to come back soon. The lakeside villas will take ur breath away. 5 luxurious rooms which are done up tastefully. The owners have ensured that we get a authentic Kerala touch given the furniture wood work and... More

Spent two days at the Kovilakam Lakeside Villa with family and experienced 'perfection'! The location, the rooms, food, service .... perfection in every single aspect! Right on the lake front, this resort is less of a 'commercial resort' and more of a 'boutique stay'. Built in traditional kerala style, the property is furnished with class! Each piece of furniture is... More

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

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
