“The Royal Gardens Hotel & Resorts, Allapuzha a great place to stay and delivers the best food in God's own country...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

We never thought there is such a class beautiful hotel in Allepuzha District. I found this hotel to be very clean and had excellent staff. The hotel has been equipped with beautiful rooms, good facilities and good parking facilities. The staff was always ready to help and the food has been awesome and delicious. Royal Garden is a great place to stay and we will recommend all our friends and relatives that they must enjoy the food and stay in this great place. For the location and price point we would certainly consider returning during our next visit.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We stopped for a much needed cuppa, and for using the restroom. And were pleasantly surprised at what lay in store.
Whilst driving along the coastal Highway 47 heading North from Trivandrum, one passes the Ashram of Amritanandamayi (at Ochira) past Karunagapally, and the Thermal Power Plant (at Cheppad) just after Kayamkulam. This Hotel is on the Highway to the right, immediately after the left turn to the Thermal Plant, and easily missed due to the unassuming signboard, and a typical entrance.
Things change,and the eyebrows go up as you drive in, and walk into the reception. For a desolate coastal stretch, this is like an oasis in the middle of nowhere.
We were further surprised by the taste, freshness and elan with which our "fish-and-chips" order was served.
Fish and chips in the middle of nowhere, in the heart of a backward coastal area.
We did not stay here, but have marked it for a comprehensive future visit.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Stayed two nights in July for work. Terrible experiences:

1. Seemed like I was only one guest there during my stay. The hotel was completely deserted.

2. No hot water for TWO NIGHTS !!! They could not fix the problem... This is not acceptable.

3. Wifi connection was not great. It took more than one hour to be connected.

4. Safety box was not functioning.

5. No breakfast buffe. The preparation food took so long (30mm) even though I was a sole guest.
Ended up eating in 3 minutes.

6. Sauna and Jacuzzi were both out of order..

7. On the first day of all problems, I was assured that all problems were resolved for the second night. When returned, I was shocked by the fact that nothing was resolved.

I complained to the manager but they have not come up with the solution.. No hot shower for two days? and they are claiming they are FIVE stars?? you must be kidding me...

This review is completely wrong,
1,The hotel was fully occupied ,so we upgraded the guest to the Royale Villa.
2,In villas we have separate geezers which is not suitable for filling the entire bath tub.
3,Our hotel is fully connected with Wi-Fi,some times there are issues with the service provider.
4,The guest was not familiar with the safe locker operations.
5,The guest came for breakfast after closing the buffet,so we served as requested,its takes 15 to 20 minutes.
6,Sauna and Jacuzzi will start operating from September 5th 2013.
7,From the day one we have informed our valuable guest all these,there was issues with language for convincing.
WE GOT 99% OF SATISFIED CUSTOMERS ANY SMALL ISSUES WE USED TO RESOLVE IMMEDIATELY,ACCORDING TO THE GUEST WE ARE THE BEST HOTEL IN ALLEPPEY.

I wish I had more time on this property.

Beautifully laid out villas, well appointed rooms, a surprise in a small town. Very clean, excellent staff. The restaurant where I had dinner (a Kerala speciality restaurant of the hotel), was great. The allepey fish curry and Kerala paratha was super.

Only 1 negative, the facility has not yet got its liquor license.

Room Tip: Try staying in the villas

not many hotels are of good quality that i know between kochi and Trivandrum on the highway.but this place is excellent. a lot of work gone into the details of design and overall a quite place to take a break.stayed in the villa,duplex set up with enough space for two families and a private car park for each villa.didnt get a chance to check the food.will need to watch out close in the night if you are trying to locate it.between Haripad and Cheppad when driving from Kochi

Room Tip: not sure about the rooms but the villa is great near the pool

Made an impromptu stop here when we decided to take an over night break during the long drive from Guruvaryur to TVM. We requested for a double bed room , but since it was full we got a free upgrade to a Villa. It was great value for money , plus the staff were very friendly. One of the best services I have experienced in Kerala. The Continental/American breakfasts might not have much variety to choose from but the overall menu is good.
