This place is not for everyone.But if you like nature,especially birds, and solitude, this place is for you.
32km from Alleppey. It takes an hour by taxi. Because first half on the main road is crowded and the second half is a village road. Surronded by palmgrove, and situated in islands, it is very relaxing.
Some cottages are independent, some share roofs and balconies. Rooms are basic but comfortable.
There are many items in the menu. But some of them are unavailable. Taste of foods is quite OK. Breakfast included in the room fee is continental. But you can order,for example, masala omlette, which was tasty.
Many previous reviewers mentioned of "arrogance" of the staff. But my experience of receptionists, waitors, and security staff was excellent.I was the only guest the first night. So they took very good care of me like a Maharaja!
V SMALL BOAT TRIP
A man rowed a small boat with bamboo pole and took me around in the backwater for an hour or so each time.(I took this ride 6 times in 3 days!)You come across with (blue and green)kingfishers,( red-winged) kites, (pure white)herons,(black)snake birds etc. in a close range. You will meet friendly fishermen and villagers,too.
Early in the moning as well as just before sunset were perfect timings.
In my opinion total satisfaction from 6 hours of this trip far exceeds 6 hours of gorgeous houseboat trip,
even the cost is a fraction.
