At the low price that we paid to stay here, our expectations were not high but we were soon to be pleasantly surprised. Checkin was quick and easy, and we were upgraded to waterfront bungalow. The rooms were small but clean, and the balcony had the best views of rice barges floating by several times a day. The property was... More

Mattress n pillows quite stained but covers were clean. Lots of tiny spiders, i mean lots on outside furnitures.They keep on coming.Rooms have Airconditioners and small screen Tele.Not... More

This is a very nice old world resort right at the edge of the vembanad lake. (the largest fresh water lake in kerala) The resort landscape reminds you of a jungle resort and not one those highly preened and expensive ones. The view of the lake is awesome and you can see houseboats and ferries moving slowly along the water.... More

We traveled as group of 14 people (6 couples, 2 kids). Location is the best feature of this property. one should ideally book the highest priced lake side- lake facing AC cottages. The lake is hardly 20-30 feet from your room and you can relax in the small sit out areas attached to your room, enjoying the view. Pros 1.... More

Loved this little hotel – comfortable and very clean chalets overlooking Vembanad Lake with its passing houseboats and fishermen. Friendly staff and an Indian menu, freshly prepared by the cook. A couple of things for Western visitors to be prepared for - the wifi was only on during office hours and most staff were not English speakers. Neither would deter... More

As other reviewers have said, it's not really a resort. I stayed two nights, and I'm not sure what it is! The rooms are cottages with AC and Satellite TV. The expensive ones face the lake, while the cheap ones are out the back. We chose a cheap one, but the friendly staff allowed us to spend an afternoon sitting... More

Don't go there expecting a hifi resort. It is more like a homestay. It is a small resort run by a family. The main attraction is the home made alleppey food. They will arrange any sea food if you pre order and cook according to your wish. Room and ambience is just average. It is a budget resort.
