“Peaceful Island in the heaven of Alleppey backwaters”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

This resort was a typical homestay but the facilities provided by the caretaker Mr. Jose were amazing along with his courteous & friendly nature & understanding the traveler's needs. Not only stopping at this, He is also a genius cook who makes awesome finger-licking fish curry at his best from the Menu of other dishes. Me & my wife were on a honeymoon trip & came across this homestay resort via Mr. Sharad who was very helpful. Our houseboat 1-day journey dropped us at this island resort which makes you feel you're in Venice of Alleppey. The rooms cleanliness was also remarkable. I would say its the best deal if you need peaceful home-like experience in Maharaja style. I wont ever forget this resort & will be back soon if they do so maintain the same way. This is not a paid written review nor I am relative/friend of anybody related to this resort. I personally visited this resort & I can vouch on the best service I have got here. Lots of love to the Doggie "Black man" I miss him so much. Please give him a sweet snack to eat on my behalf. Myself Pradeep & my wife Nidhi will be back soon :-)
You gave us forever marvelous remembering days of our lives at your resort. I wish this could become the best homestay in all over the Alleppey backwaters.

Thank you Mr. Jayachandran

I was in Alleppey for two days. A day in the resort and another in a houseboat arranged by them. Located amidst the backwaters, this place is perfect for those looking for some tranquility. The rooms were clean, the cook was at our service anytime. A private canoe of the owner was always available. We did some fishing sitting on the banks of the back waters, which was like having a fishing spot right outside ones own house. The hammock, the little breakfast shade, everything was just awesome.
The houseboat arranged by them was good too. They arranged for cab service when requested at the last moment for transfer back to Cochin. The stay, I would say was extremely comfortable and welcoming. If safe, clean, positive environment is what you wish for, one must choose the Bamboo Lagoon.

The bamboo lagoon is a great place to relax and unwind on the Kerala backwaters. The accommodation is on an island requiring a small boat transfer from Allepey. Its about a 10 minute tuk tuk ride from Allepey town to the boat dock. 

We really enjoyed relaxing at the Bamboo Lagoon. It was nice to chill out in the hammock and watch the house boats driving by. 

Because of the remoteness of the accommodation, you need to advise the staff early on in the day whether you require lunch or dinner prepared. There is no menu to choose from as such but the staff get an idea of what you like / want (i.e fish curry, veg curry etc) and you will not be disappointed. The food was amazing. Joes, the chef, is so talented and also a friendly genuine person to chat too.

Surprises....
1. The resort is on an island...you have to leave your car and reach the resort by a small boat....wow....felt great to see that...i could see my car from resort as the car was parked just on the other side of the back water...around 100mtrs...and it was safe...
2. new constructed small but very cute rooms....presently there are 3 room (in a cottage structure)..very soon they will start 4 more rooms...the rooms very very tidy, clean, good bathroom and fittings...a LCD...AC...
3. A cook with a smile on his face...always and prepares the best food we had during our 7 days tour of kerala at various hotels and restaurants....but you have to tell him in advance about the food you want as there can be a maximum of 3 families at present in the resort....
4. the price of the food was icing on the cake....125 Rs per person for dinner....its just an example....
5. you can do fishing whole day....just sitting in front on the resort gate...they have fishing sticks and the cook will give your baits...
6. we got a complimentary shikara (2hr) which was also a experience to have...
7. at night when all boat house were parked on the shores, we felt staying in this resort is better- you can enjoy backwater during 2 hr shikara ride, at night when your movements are restricted on the deck of boat house, we felt we could walk in garden during night....our kids were more comfortable in garden than in shikara....
8. A VERY GOOD PLACE TO STAY....UNDOUBTLY

This is a place to be in at alleppy. The hospitality was remarkable. People were very helpful and unexpectedly we had a very good cook named Jose. He was good at north as well as south Indian cooking. The energy of Mupan uncle was to watch out for.Then the Shikara man.. Shiva.. was very silent but again his smile was warm and friendly. The place would give you a very homely feeling and you would feel very relaxed. Its will feel like a home. The view and sorroundings were beautiful and enchanting.

The only thing that could improve was Bathroom linen.

Hats off to Mr. jayaChandran, who was flexible enough to accomodate our requests and personally helped us out for everything. Whenever we come again, the choice will be the same. Keep up the good work.
