Beautiful location, very good rooms, very service-oriented staff in structures that look like old Kerala houses with a lot of woodwork. However, one needs to know what kind of food one likes in order to order - as food is made to order. We ordered Keralite food and the food was very good. Not sure how good they would be...

Stayed for 2 days with family. Very quite and nice place, close to the nature, right on the shore of Vembanad lake. We had a very good experience of Shikara ride, arranged by the resort, in Vembanad lake from the resort to Kumarakom. This resort is about 20 min away from Alleppey town but that is how most of the...

This is a hidden gem, right on the banks of the Vembanad Lake. Spotlessly clean, elegantly designed and comfortably furnished, this homestay cannot dissapoint you. Moderately priced for its standard, Kovilakam offers a relaxed and picturesque holiday. The staff is courteous and friendly. Their cook, Bhasi, dishes out delicious food, always with a smile and on time. The only downside,...

This is a gem of a place with wonderful, serene atmosphere around. The property is actually a typical Kerala style bungalow which has been converted into a resort. There are just 4-6 rooms in here but the rooms are beautiful and clean. Staying here is actually like staying at home with very friendly staff around you to help cater to...

This quiet villa is a perfect getaway from the bustle of nearby towns. It offers a beautiful view, comfy rooms with A/C, and friendly service. We enjoyed lunch and breakfast and the food was uniformly great. It's a bit of a drive into the heart of town, so plan accordingly. But if you want to stay out of the noise...

We stayed in this villa for 2 nights and loved the breath taking views of vembanad lake. Good place for a silent holiday. This place has all potential to attract tourists if this is managed well. There is no chef and the food here is a joke and priced very high. They brought parathas from outside and charged them high....

The grounds are gorgeous. The running of the hotel, however, is remarkably bad. I actually cannot believe that there are not more reviews on here that reflect this. A few examples: - When we got there, we had to keep walking over to the manager's cottage to ask questions. She told us that she would have come over to talk...
