Stayed in Feb 2017, I had a mixed experience, The staff was not so welcoming on arrival. Hotel has got a good ambience though has issues with cleanliness. It provides an amazing view as it is located just next to the lake. Food is good and there are no other dining options nearby. Walk or riding a bicycle in the...

The place is nothing big and fancy and yet has a charm of its own. The resort itself is well maintained with simple and basic amenities in place. The rooms are spacious and we stayed in the Superior Lake View Room from where the view of the lake was breathtaking! Since the resort is away from the main road and...

I understand it should be an operational concern but can be a better way to communicate to a guest who checked in late...

This is a beautifully laid out property and offers an excellent view of Alleppey backwaters. Wake up early in the morning to see the sunrise. Swimming pool is right next to backwaters and looks surreal. Areas of improvement - Wifi, room size and breakfast spread

My first visit in Jan 2017. A small, family run hotel, mainly Indian visitors (I was the only European there at the time). Very comfortable and clean, staff incredibly helpful and friendly, organised taxis, local information, lake trip, airport transfer etc. Food was delicious, massages were to die for. A very quiet hotel, but just what I was looking for....
