Do not expect finding the white sand dunes of other parts of the world in these beaches, but you can't miss this inexpensive prime beach location if you like sleeping with the sound of the waves for affordable prices. You are almost sleeping in the beach, literally! And, comparing to some hotels in the backwaters, you are just withing walking distance to great restaurants and the lively areas of the beach where the locals hang out.
By far the best thing about this place is the staff! Sue and Jay were super laid back, friendly and incredibly reliable. The houseboat they got for us was simply AMAZING! And they also got reliable and fairly-priced transport from the airport and to the towns nearby that we visited during our stay.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Mandala is a small guest house located on a quite part of Alleppey Beach. It has two basic rooms, one bamboo cottage and another cottage with a great view to the beach. We just started our annex property near Mandala and it got upstair rooms with sea view. All rooms are bath attached and three of them with bath tubs. We organize some trips to the sea with fishermen, to the back waters and we also do BBQ on the beach. You can have a comfortable and relaxed stay over here. ... more less
