We didn't really plan much before embarking for India, one of our daughters said we must go, best place in the world, absolutely fantastic. So we went, the shock of getting out of the airport and into the city was shattering, so many people, so much chaos, so alive....it's like nowhere else we've ever been. Anyway, Poopally's, Joseph and Cecilla,... More

We stayed 2 nights and received a very warm welcome from the moment we arrived. Joseph clearly loves to have guests and wants you to enjoy his beautiful home and location. We were staying in the superior room which had a very large bed on high legs, we slept well! The room had the red floor tiles and dark wooden... More

We arrived at Pooppallys and were warmly greeted by Joseph and Cicely. Joseph, who is 86 years young, has lived here all his life and in fact, the place was built by his Grandfather back in 1895 (I believe). Joseph and Cicely are very caring hosts, and looked after our every need throughout our 6 day stay. Joseph arranged auto-rickshaws... More

We have just spent time with Joseph and Cicily at Pooppallys. We can't speak highly enough of the hospitality of both hosts. Joseph arranged a three hour ( it could have been longer had we wished) boat trip of the back water canals. This was very enjoyable. We were tossing up between this and a houseboat, we are glad we...

Unfortunately we were only able to stay at Pooppallys for one night but what a great experience it was! It is located on the backwaters so you are able to see the traffic.

We spent two nights here as part of a two week trip to India with driver organised by Indian company Icon Tours (highly recommended). We could have stayed here much longer.

We initially dithered about whether take a houseboat and in retrospect are glad we didn't. Pooppally is some distance from Alleppy, so the admittedly picturesque houseboats only reach them in the afternoon, instead we were privy to the true backwater life. Whether it was net fishing or duck herding, it all happened in front of our eyes as we relaxed... More
