White Saand Heritage Beach Residence
Ranked #28 of 200 Alappuzha B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 22, 2013

I think this the worst resort in Kerala. The staff here are always yearning(it is better if I say begging) for tips. The toilets are not at all hygienic. The staff and local people are always drinking near the rooms and their behavior shows their culture. And, so it is not at all a safe place to enjoy your vacation.
Food is OK and is less expensive also. Power failure was a regular thing. '24hour internet facility' was also a mirage. Due to all these reasons I had to move to Palm Beach resort (very close to this resort) the next day itself because of the pathetic condition of this resort. That resort had many security measures and they treated as well.

If you are going to go and stay with family then it is the most terrible place in Alappuzha. Pagoda Resort or even Palm Beach Resort(the resort adjacent to it) will be a better choice but it is a little expensive.

White Saand has certainly the best location in Alappuzha, directly on the beach. Although we were thinking of staying for 1 night, White Saand was so nice that we cancelled another destination and stayed for 3 nights. Both the staff and the owner were all very friendly and very helpful. The room was quite good, and the location was fantastic. Only issue is the walls are very thin that if your neighbour snores you hear it perfectly well!

The Location of the Resort is amazing. The Sea moves close to the Resort in December-January timeframe making this place special for these two months. Based on the information we found out, the sea will move back by another 0.5 km during other months so the experience may vary during other months. The waves can be seen and heard from the rooms. The Room had a good AC and Hot Water was available as needed as the rooms are fitted with geysers. The rooms are clean and well maintained.

The Resort does not have any restuarant locally but they do have a menu card and arrange for food. The rooms are basic and do not have TV but serves the purpose if you are looking for a good beach getaway. They have hammocks available in front of each room which is a good option to relax.

After 7-30PM, it is better to withdraw from the beach as we saw lots of crabs crawling around on the beach. The beach itself is very clean and almost gives the feel of a private beach as it is away from the crowd of the Vijay Beach nearby. Was here for New Year's Eve 2012 and the resort staff had arranged for a nice evening dinner. They even burst crackers at midnight to welcome the New Year. The staff is friendly and helpful. I am planning to visit this place again sometime soon...

This is the closest I have lived to a beach! Had an awesome time, staff will shoo away locals if they swim/ sunbathe at the beach in front of the guesthouse so it's like we have our own private beach. Beach is spotless and you can spot wild dolphins nearby in the sea at around 6am :)

Was not too crowded with tourists at the guesthouse so you can do your own stuff at your own time, and just hang out at the hammocks etc. Facilities are good and clean, by Indian standards ;p

Food is available at the in-house kitchen so you can dine by the beach too.

I stayed in White Saand Beach resort in Allepy. This is the best place to stay in Allepy. The resort is right on the beach in a safe locality. The staff is also very helpful & responsive. I had great time with my family & would recommend this to all the travellers.
