My friend and I had only planned on staying in Alleppey for two nights, but ended up extending our stay for three more days because we loved it so much. And, honestly, that was all because of staying at Mandala.
It is so welcoming and relaxed, and the gents who run it are beyond helpful and accommodating. I 100% recommend this place to anyone going to Alleppey - in fact, if you weren't planning on going to Alleppey, I would recommend it solely because of this place. They have a cozy little nook that overlooks the beach and is a great way to meet other travellers. Not to mention the fact that the food, coffee and tea they serve up there were amazing! Babu, Mohammed, Nice, Joe and all of their friends all went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. And the room was comfortable, clean and had a running shower which was a bonus.
I would never have left if I didn't have to, I miss it already.
