A little way out of town and a little run down. This resort is perfectly comfortable but not very inspiring. We only stayed the one night and did not eat here so cannot comment.Overall I would happily stay here again but for the money you could possibly find better.

Overall,this was one of the most enjoyable places we stayed at during our five week tour in Southern India. Our room was airy and clean, with space to sit outside and observe the wildlife - including fireflies! Repellent dealt with the mosquitoes. Our hostess was charming and helpful and cooked up excellent breakfasts. Wifi was available in the main house.... More

Mathew and Mercy invited us into their fine old Kerala home. Set next to the canal and with easy access to the back waters. Rooms are simple and clean. Mathew keeps all sort of birds in many aviaries. Breakfasts are beautifully cooked by Mercy. Really felt welcome here in this quiet retreat.

We found a very clean and neat cottage, where we stayed for three nights. Even after the monsoon season and near a lake we had no problem with mosquitos as we our hosts were taking care of this also. Everyone is really helpful and friendly, they can advise and arrange activities for you anytime. The place was slightly more expensive... More

A more expensive nights stay than many in our travels around south India, the 500-900r on the website was misleading, particularly when charged 1250r. Our particular room had a number of visitors- geckos, which I am not phased by, but there were hundreds of ants in the bathroom, and centipedes, following a huge thunderstorm. The roof also leaked, and there... More

Loved everything about our stay here. We arrived at 10:30PM, having travelled all day. Despite the late hour, Mercy whipped us up some omelettes to eat. We had not eaten for hours and this was greatly appreciated. The room was lovely: spacious, clean, decent bathroom. Mozzie net and coils were also provided. Mercy was great throughout our stay, helping us... More

As a retired couple travelling round Kerala, we arrived unexpectedly early at 6:00 am on bus from Cochin Airport, but were made very welcome. Merci is the perfect hostess - keen to help but without being pushy & her canoe tour of the Backwaters is a must. Good location as easily accessible to the town & the beach but away... More

I spent several days at Palmy Lake at the start of a trip through Kerala. Palmy Lake is walkable from the center of Alleppey or an inexpensive auto rickshaw ride. It's a quiet tree-shaded location and the owners are quite helpful with arranging local transport, as well as providing boat rides through the backwaters. The rooms are simple but nicely... More

Merci's lovely homestay was a lovely relaxing choice in Alleppey. Rooms were basic but clean and bathroom with hot water. Lovely garden with hammocks outside. Everyone was very friendly and breakfasts, wifi were available in main house. Thank you for our stay!

Palmy Lake Resort is home to 3 generations of an Indian family who run a very welcoming homestay. There are a number of detached chalets in the garden, each with en suite, for guests. Breakfast is available in the main house & Merci & Bigi have a wealth of local knowledge and nothing was ever too much trouble for them.... More
