“In the lap of nature”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Though the term resort may be a misnomer, Aqua Bliss is a beautiful little place in the lap of nature. Sourrounded with backwaters in front and back, with a beautiful view of the houseboats that pass through, it is a treat to watch and relax. A boat was arranged to pick us up at the point where the road ended and were warmly greeted at the resort. The room was spacious and had good A/C. A little bit of maintenance is required in the bathroom as well as the bathtub. The staff arranged for fishing hook and the kids had a good time fishing, and they caught some too. The food served was really good as per our liking (vegetarian) and sumptuous too. Go with an open mind without expecting too much of a "resort"ness and you will surely like the place.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2012

I & my hubby travelled to kerala through a package holiday in last week of Jan 2012 & we never expected such a dream location for stay. Initially we were lost since our driver was not aware of this location but we finally managed to reach this idyllic place after our driver got instructions from the resort owner/ director.We were escorted by a smallboat which was arranged by Suresh, extremely warm person & director of Aqua Bliss. True to the name of this resort we were glad to get into this resort as you feel you are in the lap of nature. Staff was kind and hospitable and food was good & more importantly hot and fresh; since you have to order the food prior to the meal time. Rooms are made of fully wooden interiors and very tidy.Clean & neat surroundings maintained well. Suresh was kind enough to not only give us a chance to do fishing but also he took us to his very old ancestral mansion located close to this resort. He;s an extremely helpful person who will guide someone if you need suggestions or tips about your travel queries. We cant thank Suresh enough for our memorable stay in Allepey. If u want a divine experience in Allepey do visit.

Room Tip: MUST STAY in the main ancestral kerala style architectural house which is at the same resort & t...

The resort was good though lonely and the surroundings were not kept tidy. Though the website boasts of a bath tub, only warm water flows in to it and it takes probably half a day to fill the bathtub.

There is no bulb at wash basin and u have to use the mirror in the dark only.
No proper lighting in the room
Room is spacious and interiors are good It only has a small AC.. It never suffices
Hot water is a problem
food is costly
Workers not prompt

We stayed in one of the bungalows at the resort and it was quite spacious and clean. Suresh was gracious enough to allow us to have a look at the traditional type kerala house they have on the property. Also he guided us to couple of nice handicraft stores located in the small market 10 mins away from the resort.
Great Food. This is the place i would highly recommend if you want to relax and catch up on a book.

Food is very much poor taste & doubly expensive than any other standard restaurant. They will not tell you rate list untill check out time even if you ask for that. Resort is very much quiet, lonely & boring. No games & amenities for children.

If you are looking for something authentic then this is the place for you. Lovely location where you can relax or let Suresh organize trips for you. We stayed in the heritage bungalow which is very spacious and visited the nearby church and amazing snakeboats and had a day trip on a houseboat which was the highlight of our stay. Suresh and Antony try their best to make you happy.
