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.

A four star resort that provides you the best in every detail and drives you get swayed off by the enchantment of the beautiful lake. You would be literally rippled out into the beauty and exuberance of the lake. The rooms, balconies, and even the wash rooms are worth mentioning. They have swimming pools, soothing relaxation spots within the compound... More

Backwater ripples brings a array if world class cuisines that is mouth watering to everyone. They are the best in KOTTAYAM for hosting weddings and receptions. The rooms and ambience are also nice. The food makes this place a par above the rest in KOTTAYAM. So be here for the wonderful eateries and a simple stay

It was excellent in terms of access to swimming pool and a relaxing evening in front of the water. They have... More
