“good stay at the resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

this is a small resort with 7 rooms, but nicely maintained by mr.majith & mr.abhi.the location of the resort is very good, Its a small island exactly between in between the punnamad lake and the vembanad lake. you have to cross the backwater to reach this. Its not a luxury resort, but the area is well maintained. the hotel staff will come and pick you up in a boat. Mr.Abhi was there to take care of our every need. we reached the late in the evening. so we spent the entire evening in the resort. there is not much to do at the resort.

Food options are limited. since we are vegetarian the chef had made some chapathis and mixed veg.curry. the taste is very good. the kid enjoyed the house boats going through the backwaters in front of the resort.

Abhi is very friendly and we kept discussing on a lot of issues. we loved our stay at bamboo lagoon and would definetly recommend for a stay.

Room Tip: all rooms are good since its a small resort and you can just walk to the front to have the view of t...

I visited Kerala this August (around the same weekend Nehrutrophy event was being conducted).

In my opinion, if you are wanting to stay in Alleppey in a resort (maybe Houseboats are a better choice - but you will have to spend a lot of extra bucks), I suggest that this is a great place to be - because of its picturesque location and excellent service by the hosts (Abi & Ranjit). I always felt like I was a guest in a home rather than being in a resort.

To begin with, there is a 1-minute ride from in a small pick-up boat from road to the resort. Then you are greeted by extremely friendly & knowledgeable hosts in the resort. The exteriors of the room are very traditional looking. The interiors are small, nothing extravagant, but fits the cozy setting of that place.

Hosts are very hands-on. From suggesting the best ways to enjoy Alleppey to arranging perfect boat/vehicle for transportation and providing authentic local delicacies, they were always on top of it. The boat ride they arranged was very good since he took us into small canals where houseboats couldn't have traveled through, providing a good view of the village.

Stayed in this resort from 13'th to 15'th August 2013. Located in a scenic and isolated place.

Pros:
1. On the very edge of the backwaters. Awesome ambience.
2. Limited rooms, hence doesn't feel crowded.
3. Promptly attended by the resort folks Rajith and Abhi.
4. Economical/Budget friendly. (For the Stay, excluding food)
5. Gives the real feel of backwaters as it's located on an island and is accessible only by boat.

Cons:
1. Food is over priced (charged for individual items) and lacks variety. Breakfast was free but gotta eat what is prepared. No choice).
2. No geyser in room. So people with kids watch out as the water is ice cold.
3. Toilets could be better.

Do not expect a star rated pampering. However definitely does justice for what we pay. Quite surprised to hear they accept cards despite the locality. Rajith, the resort's point of contact/owner was prompt in arranging whatever the tourists needed. Kudos. Definitely worth staying there. You wont regret.

I stayed in Bamboo Lagoon over a weekend in February and it was a very charming experience. The place although not very flashy is ideal for a place like Allepey. The people are very warm, helpful and knowledgeable. They arranged for us a very scenic shikara ride, and an excellent message at a SPA nearby. The highlight is the free boat transport..by a very enthu .."thatha" which was very memorable. The view is not that great..but you cant get everything for the price. Would recommend the place for short weekend stays.

Room Tip: take the lagoon facing rooms..for decent views

I would like to help readers by providing good analysis so that it will be helpful for deciding priorities.

Pros:

- Enjoyable start to the stay- Pick-Up by a small boat
- In budget range ~2K+
- Not much crowded, quiet, small, comfortable place
- Good non-veg food
- Clean rooms, nice service by Joseph the cook and Anup.

Cons:
- Small rooms(Just as sufficient with basic amenities and AC)
- Veg food not so good(All over Kerala anyways)

Overall it was a very good experience, we were on our honeymoon and this place would be a really nice place for honeymooners!

Our stay at Bamboo lagoon was a memorable one. Really best place to check in at allapuzha. fantastic back water resort. To feel the essence of backwaters. Their hospitality and service is so good. Food is delicious, you need not try for an alternative. Cheta's cooking is awesome and magical. Credits to his splendid Tea. Mr.Anoop is friendly and he is free to give good information, suggestions. All the staff right from room keeper to gardeners are keen in maintaining the quality of service and keeping up the reputation of the resort.

IF you really want to feel the backwaters of kerala then this is the place.
