Alappuzha is a detour from your route to Kondai from Thekkady,where you are booked for the day ( ref to your other post )

I would suggest Kumarakom , where you can visit kumarakom bird sanctuary in the morning , take a cruise in the lake in a shikkara and then head to Kondai lip at Ezhupunna , north of Cherthala

you would take around 50 minutes from Kumarakom to reach the jetty from where the resort people pick you
