I very much enjoyed my stay at Sona Heritage Home. The home offers a tranquil respite to the weary traveller, being set off the main road and its noise, and in the midst of lovely gardens full of frogs croaking in the evening. The house itself is beautiful, a truly heritage home built at the beginning of the last century... More

Absolutely loved our stay at Sona's. Joseph is a funny man, with loads of good stories ! Bit hard to follow sometimes but just looking at him is entertaining ! The room are good value for money. Not the most modern but that does not fit the style of the home anyway. Joseph arranged a trip on the backwaters in... More

It is a little far from the beach, and food is a bit of a problem if you do not like coconut oil since all nearby shacks use that only. Otherwise u have to travel a good 2 km to get some decent food. Owner is quite helpful. I had a little bit problem with payment, they were behaving as... More

Picked at random from LP, this place was quiet with clean basic rooms. The family were helpful and very friendly. It's really near the water which is useful and about 1.5k from the centre of town. Breakfast is not included but they offer a very limited menu which is fine.

Down near the lakeshore and very handy for the ayurvedic centre and houseboat dock, this shady little oasis nestles well back from the road, ensuring that it is peaceful at all hours of the day and night. Your hosts are warm and friendly and helpful in terms of where to go / what to do. The wifi is good near... More

We stayed here a couple of nights. Take a mozzie net ( not provided). The house and gardens were lovely and quiet as it was situated well back from the road. The hosts were fairly friendly and suggested a very good boatman for a day out on the backwaters, James. It was a great day with James, he went out... More

The house oozes with character and the rooms are clean and big. My room was cleaned and sheets were changed without me ever having to tell them. The big four poster beds looked a little daunting at first sight but they turned out to be very comfortable. There's wifi (that works) on the patio and a verandah overlooking a very... More

We stayed here for the last two days of our Kerala trip with friends from the US. Easily walkable into town - about 10 minutes, and set in a lovely garden, with a peaceful covered verandah. Breakfast is a little extra - but great, and the whole place is very very reasonable. Mr and Mrs 'Sona' are really kind, very... More

A lovely old house, with loads of character. We stayed for 3 nights, which was about right for Alleppey. Joseph and family were really friendly with lots of great information and stories. Nice spot out of the busy part of town but not far or much in a tuk tuk. The boat trip with James was great, the backwaters are... More
