I love the fact that the place has a lot of hammocks in te huge garden right in front of out room. And it is facing the backwater. We always had our coffee and tea bh the backwater. It was really a peaceful place to stay. They allowed us to look at all rooms to decide again. The best was... More

Looking directly onto the backwaters, Ashtamudi Villas is a dream come true! A green oasis with beautiful gardens and lovely clean rooms. Plenty of hammocks to relax in. Lots of help to organise activities within the area which was fantastic and something you don't get from other accommodation. Joseph went above and beyond to help us with our stay. He... More

Really nice atmosphere at Ashtamudi Villas, by the side of the Ashtamudi lake and in amongst the palm tree garden you could almost forget that there's up 10 other guests staying here with you. There's hammocks to lie around in and a good food service for breakfast and dinner, although this is slightly overpriced. It is a little way out... More

Ashtamudi Villas was such a lovely place to stay. It is set right next to the banks of the lake with beautifully maintain gardens that make the view from the breakfast table or hammock a delight. Our room was also spectacular. We were impressed with the whole place. It was about 5-10mins out of town which is surprisingly close given... More

The villas are in a lovely location on the a large lake-like expanse of backwater and the garden is full of hammocks, swings and benches to relax on (providing the humidity/heat are bearable - in late April it's pretty close). The non AC bedroom adjacent to the kitchen is large, clean and cool enough at night with a great washroom.... More

My son and I stayed here in mid-March 2015. The location is perfect - an oasis of quiet right on Ashtamudi Lake with hammocks to relax in. The hotel serves tasty food so there is no need to leave the premises.Our room was spotlessly clean and we had comfortable beds and an excellent shower. The houseboat we rented for 24... More

If you travel India like I did and end up south towards the end of your visit this is the perfect place to spend a few days. Or a week if you feel like just chilling out. Beautiful location on the lake, gorgeous, new nicely detailed rooms and hammocks for all. The food was great and the staff friendly and... More

Fantastic rooms made with natural materials. Set in a lovely garden on the lake. Hammocks to chill in, food is good and Francis the tuk tuk driver/guide is a charmer. Worth staying in Kollam for - can go on an interesting canoe tide down the backwaters with Vishnu.

We stayed in March this year on our 2 week tour of Kerala and fell in love with the place. The rooms are large and sqeaky clean. The bathrooms are luxurious with great showers and hot water. The setting is a paradise right on the lake edge and the owner Prabhath and staff go all out to make your stay... More
