We stayed here before going on an overnight riceboat experience. I would have rathered stayed in the hotel. There is nothing around the hotel so be prepared to eat there. They had a boat to go cruising around sunset but the winds were too much so the boat didn't go. We heard that this happened the day before too but... More

I stayed here for 3 nights for small business team conference. 1. Reaching here: It is the three and half hours away from Cochin international/domestic air-port. 2. About hotel: Lonely, calm, quite, clean and well maintained. Service excellent. Staff is good. Keralian style cottages. Scenic view from all the cottages. Rooms are clean. Hotel invertor is available, so no problem... More

The property is beautiful, it faces the vembanad Lake and the rooms were Lake facing. Beautiful and well laid rooms. The whole day was spent in leisure (pool, walking, fishing etc.) You can ask for fishing rods if you wish to fish. In the evening, a waiter showed up on my door, informing that there will be no buffet for... More

This one is perfect value for money, considering its beautiful location and facilities provided. Cottages, especially those facing the Vembanad lake, are not only spacious and well furnished, but they also provide excellent views of the lake. We had stayed along with our kids, who got on-hand tutorial on angling at the resort. Overall, it is beautiful resort that is... More

In the most picturesque location is this beautiful resort that is a feast to the eyes. Had a short yet relaxing time there with family. So if you're at kumarakom just head to Backwater Ripples Resort. The ultimate place for nature-lovers to soak in all that beauty.

The hotel has individual cottages with good amenities. The staff was very friendly. We got a free 1 hour houseboat ride in the backwaters. The food was very nice. Very well maintained property. I would recommend anyone.
