I am sorry to write a review so late. Unfortunately, I could stay here for one night only as per my tour package. I would strongly recommend this place over houseboat to all visiting Alleppy. Location, ambience, staff, food etc. everything is marvellous. The most beautiful and spectacular was the back water cruise, passing through many Chinese fishing net and... More

One of the best hotels in Kerala.. Way better than house boats, which can make you sea-sick.. Stylish entrance boat, amazing view of lake from all rooms, authentic kerala food which will make you go finger-licking.. One can just row in a small wooden boat in the morning, relax with the fishing rods..Beautiful and antique interiors in the room which... More

Absolutely fabulous place, tripadvisor has not disappointed me yet.. Went to this place with family and had a fantastic time. The rooms have a vintage touch, although with all the modern amenities. The backwaters surrounding the place really adds to the entire experience. Kayaking, paddle boating, fishing and all for free!!! I doubt I will get a deal like this... More

I just finished a week in all with a break in between. I really enjoyed the hospitality, the rooms and the ambience. It would be, I'm guessing, a perfect honeymoon destination. Although there isn't much to the local town or beaches the chefs will cook to your specifications and made me really deliciously spicey curries. There's plenty of little activities... More

And I am not exaggerating in anyway. It's true in every sense. Such hospitality you will not get even in Taj hotels where I have been to..my in laws had retired last month and I wanted to organize something special for them and were going out together after many years. I have been to kondai lip last year in August... More

Its a bit late to write this review. We had a family holiday in May 2015. It was an amazing out of the world experience. We took 3 cottages. All the family members, right from my mother, who is the oldest, to my nephew, youngest thoroughly enjoyed every bit of the place and stay. Coming across such a courteous, all-friendly,... More

If I have to rate the resort for just the ambience, it would definitely be a 5 * :) ..However, let me try to list down the major pros and cons of the place apart from the location. Pros: 1. The rooms were clean and neat. They allowed us early check in and the room was a vintage beauty with... More

Neat and lovely place. Food ( vegetarian) was good. No complaints. The staff were friendly. The beach outing was nice. It's located close to Kochi but seems so away from the hustle and bustle. Worth the money.

I have been this resort on April 14 and I must say it was an amazing experience. We were at the wee end of our family trip to Kerala and this resort was our last halt. We wanted to relax before we returned back to our daily soap opera of life. This place is amongst the backwaters and is very... More

We stayed 2 nights at Kondai lip and frankly I would not recommend this to anyone who is looking for clean backwaters. Kondai Lip is surrounded by really dirty backwaters. Too many mosquiots that you cannot sit outside enjoying the view for more than 30 mins, Hotel staff are very nice and well behaved but I guess the hotel management... More
