Booked this hotel with an offer going on while coming from Thekkady. The hotel is reachable only by boat and they provide free pick and drop facility from the city center.

Our houseboat was docked outside this beautiful resort. The meals were served from the resort kitchen. The location is very beautiful and the food was delicious. The location is indeed calm, serene and the place is well maintained.

Awesome food. Great hospitality. We stayed in their boat house for a day -small but clean and tidy. Did not move into the Room. We came back to have lunch at Riverine even after moving to a luxury hotel from their boat house. Friendly Staff and good location.

Great location and views, service oriented staff, average rooms and less than average common facilities - that was our experience at this resort. The Resort is accessible only by boat. Nearest boat point is the Kanjippadam boat jetty, which is 16km by road from Alappuzha and 8km from Ambalappuzha. And the resort picks you up in their nice small motor... More
