Emarald Pristine Island Floating Resort
Ranked #52 of 68 Hotels in Alappuzha
Reviewed September 14, 2010

This place was like a dream come true! This is a resort on a small island therefore very quite and full of nature. Despite of it being in an island they provide with all modern facilities! Kids loved the fact that they could do fishing and for the young and the adults they have paddle and motor boats! Their rooms float on the water and you can feel it at times. Over all a lovely experience :-)

As part of our honemoon we (I along with my wife) travelled to this place in the month of October 2008.

We had been to this place from our night stay at house boat in kumarakom. Traveled in a cab to this pristine resort main land. There is a motor boat ready for us to take upto the resort whcih is in the middle of the water.
A warm welcome by the staff with a juice. We finished the check-in so fast. finished in less than 5 mts.

+ve:
Nice floating cottage with a balcony , AC(looks like AC has a problem. The room is not cold, we felt swetted), nice bed, nice bathroom.
The room service is good, The sunset cruise (in a small boat) is also good. However it is so late. They could have arranged this bit early at around 5 pm ......but they started at around 6 pm ...upto 7.30 pm. Since it is so dark we could not see the most beatiful part of the river ...........Over all the location is nice.

-Ve:
The service at the restauraant is very slow. We waited for nearly 30 minutes for the food as part of our lunch. The reason we found is ....the resort owner and its family members of nearly 15 members are coming for lunch on that day and they were late. So they stopped serving the food to others also. This is bad on resort part.
The sitting arrnagement is not good ...........They are like school benches. ..

This place was highly regarded and its worth the cost we pay. Th facilities in the room are good and we have a small balcony which faces the water.
The other recreation facilities are OK. Carrom, fishing etc were really a namesake items and no really worth it. The boating is enjoyable. We missed the evening cruise due to heavy rain. The food availability was very bad unfortunately due to less number of people in the cottage. in fact we were the only 2 present on that night.
The room had excellent sanitary facilities and i personally liked its geyser as it took really short time for getting heated up. The place can be a definite recommendation for newly weds. However for a vacation, i feel its too costly.

What I most liked about this one is the place where it is constructed... on the backwaters..!!
Its floating cottages are unique and gives extremely romantic and good view of backwaters.
Service is average, I will say little bit disappointing but still acceptable. Hotel provides free fishing. Food quality is ok. Campus is very good when hotel is not fully acquired. Water floating cottages have enough space. Overall a different experience!

This resort was suggested by one of my friend who stayed there earlier. The accessibility and visibility of this place to the out side world is poor (not a well marketted place for sure). However, once we get in to the island by a 5 minutes boat ride, the place is truely fantastic. Good (not great) Kerla food, room are well furnished and very good. Good place for honey mooners.

The place where the Hotel is located is superb. A small Island surrounded with water. A great experience. Service is alos good. They have a small restaurant out side, it is so refreshing having morning tea sitting there. They also have small park which refreshes your eye. People who needs unique place should visist this place.
