The Riverside Retreat justifies its name. Located on the banks of the Pamba River and other exotic backwaters, it really provides a retreat to the olden golden days. It not located in the proper heart of the city, you may have to take two or three adjoining winding roads to reach the hotel, but it’s worth the trouble.
On our Kerala tour to Munnar,thekkady,kovalam,alleppey , we had never imagined to land on a place like this.It ws a good tour with things being professionally managed and good staffs at all hotels & riverside retereat being no exception.Full marks to Antilog Vacations ( our tour operator) as well for arranging a good tour without overcharging
The time you spend inside the resort is total bliss. I had a gala time amidst the hammocks with the book I was reading. The view of the nearby boats sailing away on the nearby canals and the presence of many birds also ameliorate the surroundings appreciably. The hosts also are really friendly and you straight away have a feeling of being at home.
The food is also quite original and is very well cooked and if you really want to experience authentic Kerala cuisine you need to taste the food here. The evenings were also nice and the hosts took us on some walks down the side lanes and beaches bordering the backwaters. The view mesmerised us with its beauty and we were really sad when it was time to leave.
We bid adieu to the hosts with heavy hearts and can’t wait to return to this amazing place.
Hence I would advocate using the Riverside Retreat as a definite stop if you are in Alleppey and you are sure to have a grand time
