Lemon Tree Vembanad Lake Resort
Ranked #7 of 70 Hotels in Alappuzha
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 6, 2012

the hotel is very nicely located directly at the lake, wonderful view from the pool onto the lake. staff is super friendly and competent which is really important because you don't get anything done by just friendly staff if they are not able to help you, which sometimes happens in India.
the food is ok, nothing extraordinary, also not too big variety to chose from.
very convenient is also the free dvd rental, especially for people not speaking the local language as you won't understand most of the tv channels.
internet did not work at the time we were there due to a problem with the provider.

We are a family of 4 and we stayed here for 2N/3D. It was a great experience. We were upgraded to a suite that overlooked the lake and pool. The food is great. The swimming pool overlooks the Vembanad lake and is simply awesome. The hotel provides cycles for going around the local village for recreation. There is a badminton court and small fitness room. The reception provides DVDs for watching. We really enjoyed our stay here.

We were total 10 in the group and booked 4 rooms on 18-Nov-12. Rooms were specious/big, very nice and clean. View of the Kerala’s biggest lake was excellent from the superior rooms we opted in. Hotel staff including service, reception and chef was excellent. Good food served by the hotel. I would suggest that Hotel should make some promotion or information on their site about they providing Houseboat or similar. This would allow anyone to come straight to the hotel and do back water boat cruise for some hours from the hotel itself. I strongly suggest this hotel for Kumarakom stay.

Nestled in the backwaters of Kerala on the bank of Vembanand lake is the ideal place for relaxing holidays. We booked 3 nights with Lemon Tree, out of which one night in houseboat. We booked deluxe room but got upgraded to the suit even though it was high season and the resort was full. The service provided by the staff was exceptional (in restaurant or at the reception). The property is very beautiful and well maintained however it is small and not many things to do in the surrounding area. Its perfect place to relax in a laid back environment though. It was a wonderful stay, however, the only thing we did not like was the houseboat- which was hired by lemon tree from another operator- was lacking in cleanliness despite having delicious food and good service.

This should be a 5 star review as no doubt this hotel is in a beautiful location with some superb facilities. It's great for families with a lovely pool and other activities such as badminton and line fishing. However, the restaurant is quite limited in its scope and although the food is mostly good, it is not up to the standard you would expect. Also when we had a problem over car bookings I found the manager quite unhelpful and even a little lazy.

We came to Kerala for relaxation and that's what this hotel delivered--in spades. Entering through the gate, garden, lobby, and then the infinity pool that segues into the lake we were swept into another dimension. We found tranquility everywhere including watching boats ply the lake.

We found a very warm and helpful staff, the best staff of all the four- and five-star hotels of our previous two weeks in India. What was hard to believe was that tipping was absolutely forbidden. This shot down my pet theory that tips are necessary for good service!

There were free bikes to take on paths to little canals and fishing villages, all unspoiled by tourism. BTW it's possible to take a bike a couple of kilometers to a beer shop in a local bazaar. Just drink your beer unostentatiously and there's no problem.

We really enjoyed the food, with the breakfast spread being especially impressive. I got a reviving ayurvedic massage at a very reasonable price.

Room Tip: Late October seemed to be low season, so we had our choice of rooms.

This was the first & the best stay during my Honeymoon in Jan 2012. I have got the best room in the Hotel and really enjoyed our short stay of one day there. The food specially the dinner was excellent (dinner was included in my package). The staff was very nice & extremely helpful special thanks to Mr. Retheesh Kumar and also, Mr Rohan Shrimali from Lemon Tree, Indore because of whom I stayed there and got the best facilities due to our corporate tie up. The resort have nice Video & books library which was completely free of charge & internet facility,again free, well maintained premises with some outdoor sports equipment. After this, I stayed at Club Mahindra properties at Munnar & Thekkaddy but stay at Lemon Tree remained most luxurious & after the trip we realized that we should have stayed there for atleast 2 nights instead of wasting one night on houseboat (not of lemon tree) which had nothing to offer.

Room Tip: left corner top lake view room is the best as far as scenic is considered and also few extra ameniti...
