Reviewed June 11, 2013

It was an ever memorable experience for our 18 families. Excellent support from the manager side and amazing cooperation from the front office and also from the kitchen in charge. The area was well maintained. We utilized their volleyball court, swimming-pool, pedal boats, indoor game room and also the banquet hall. Rooms were spacious. I don't have any negative findings.

This property is really nice. Really nice rooms, clean and innovative bathrooms of rooms situated on 1st floor, lake view is too good, swimming pool is breath taking which is at tip of backwaters with great view of lake and moving houseboats. Food is average and little expensive. But there is no nearby good restaurant, so no option. Service is quick and good. Food quality should be improved as guest are shelling out too much for food. Overall, this resort is good for all family, couple, friends.

Room Tip: Try to stay in lake view 1st floor rooms for best view of backwaters and swimming pool.

It was memorable stay at Ilona resort. According to our plan, We 10 people group stayed one night but we should stay more days there. It is really well developed with many amenities property. Though it is far from Alleppy , location is great.
Rooms and bathrooms are spacious with modern furniture and facilities. Lots of indoor and outdoor sports are available with cycling too. Swimming pool is best of its class. Canal boating also have great fun.
Breakfast was so tasty with lost of regional as well as western varieties. Desk and room services were satisfactory and Check-in, Check-out process was also fast.
I would like to highly recommend this property.

Room Tip: Every room has its own value.

A new expecience of living close to water and felt like home with everything around and lot of things to do. Also the complimentary boating tour was good, but it would have been great if its in a house boat. Food is good and lot of varieties and if your picky in what you eat, then you have everything you need. We enjoyed the stay and the candle light dinner was awesome. Thanks for the hospitality.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are spacious and the ones close to the pool are good.

Approach to the property is through residential area but once you are inside the hotel its a great please to stay. Rooms are spread out at the property facing the backwaters. You can enjoy lying down on Hammock, a few of them tied to trees, a Tree House where a couple can spend time gazing into the backwaters. There are activities for the kids, a canal inside the property, pedal boating is available free, a swimming pool for kids and adults is maintained well, hotel provides fishing rods and the feed for those who like to experience fishing, I was lucky to get some fish on the hook. A Shikara (small boat) with 30 minute complimentary ride, it can be hired on hourly basis at reasonable charge. Ayurvedic spa is very good. There is only one Restaurant at the property, Breakfast has both Continental (average) and typical south Indian items, their lunch/dinner menu has good choice of south Indian Cuisine especially sea food cooked in Kerala spices, food served is good in filling potions. Staff are very friendly. Its a good place to stay for a couple of days. Alleppey has humid weather so one has to choose the timing of stay Sep-Dec could be good weather to be.

Room Tip: Ask for water facing rooms and choose the first floor rooms for good view of backwaters.
