Went for a short 3 day break to Alleppey earlier this month. The resort is a 2 1/2 hour drive from Cochin Airport. The location of the resort is quite obscure and you can easily miss the small lane that leads you towards the resort. Once you're there, it is a beautiful location. Punnamada is a small boutique resort with... More

We arrived via a house boat which we rented from Evergreen tours which was superb. The Vemberband Lake, is full of wildlife and we even saw a Boa constrictor eaten what looks like the remains of an Aligator? The resort has great views of the lake and even puts on a free boat trip at 1600 each day followed by... More

The resort is probably the best option to stay with family at Alleppey , the others seemed smaller and not in good shape . The location is great and right on the lake front . Would suggest to go for the lake facing villas instead of the garden facing ones which just dont have anything to look forward for and... More

One of the many resorts by the banks of Vembanad Lake, this resort gives one of the best views I have ever seen in my life. There are a couple of routes to this resort and we ended up taking the narrowest road as we were driving towards this resort from Allepey. This resort is almost 2 km from the... More

We had a great time in a short visit. We enjoyed the evening cruise and the dance/music shows during the evening. We went to meet for Yoga class but the room was dusty, hot, and mats did not look appealing to stay. So we went for early breakfast instead. We didn't try the massages but doctor was very nice and...

Simply awesome resort. Food was good, ambience was amazing. Imagine you have a half open bathroom, if you open door of your bedroom you can just see the lake & houseboat- heaven on earth. Staff was very polite and helpful. We visit this place in the month of Dec 2014. We enjoyed our stay here and spa was very unique... More

Visited in May 2016 with Wife and Kid. Chose this since it was recommended by a friend. Opted for 2 nights lake view room and 1 night in the houseboat. The early monsoon weather added to the charm. The food was really good, especially the local cuisine. The room + food package was complete value for money. The hospitality of... More

Stayed in this resort during April this year. Good thing is that it gives an amazing lake view at the restaurant area and they give us choice to sit close to the lake and enjoy our food. The food was also too good. But the stay totally was not pleasant. With my 6 year old daughter I went to swimming... More

We booked a house boat experience through our travel planner so I didn't really know what to expect. We pulled into a luxury resort and were taken to a boat which I assumed was to share but it was all ours. It was incredible. We had a chef, a captain and a crew member. The gentlemen were incredible, the backwards... More
