I stayed here in August as part of a large group. Bamboo Lagoon is basically 7-8 bungaloes (with TV's and air-conditioning in each one) by the water with a nearby building for the cooking and for the hotel manager to sleep in.

Everything you would normally expect from a nice hotel was taken care of: It was quiet, I slept well, it was very relaxing. Some local women come by each morning to cook and do some cleaning. The food and cleanliness were excellent.

The thing that sets this place apart is the manager. He took it as his personal mission from Lord Ganesh to make sure we were having an awesome time. He got us in a van from the airport. Once we were there he was never pushy or too involved but he got things done. Obviously, his English was good, he knew the area and the right boat guys. He also made sure that I got my flight out of Kerala.

Just go here, you won't regret it.

we had chosen this hotel after reading good review and ranking on trip advisor,this homestay is wonderfully located on one of the canals near Punnamada Kayal.We stayed there for 1night in the ac dlx backwater facing room last month.we reached there at around 8pm,it was dark,and we cross the canal by boat :) it was a grt experience. they picked and dropped us from the other side of canal..Excellent service by the person in charge there.we were recieved with smiling faces. we found our complementary breakfast is great,not only the taste of foods but the manner they served it ,the person preapared the dishes and served it heartly.you may not found the 5star facilities here but i liked the people and the location.we get a very good feel of backwater life.all together a memorable experaince within budget,clean rooms,excellent service,hotel director himself personally enquired about our comfort repeatedly.complimentary canoe ride was also excelent. a comfortable place highly recomended .

Room Tip: take the front rooms which are backwater facing.you can see houseboats are passing by from the window.i think there are 3 such rooms

It's a homestay not a resort and is under construction.The quality of food and hospitality is nice and the rooms are clean.In the same amount of money one can get other good resorts also.Don't go by the name....

Dear Valued guest,

Thanking you for visiting us and appreciation for food and hospitality

however we noted your view on pricing and place which is clearly a different opinion considering remaining trailers openion, up on detailed investigation we found that we only charged you INR 1700 (as a special offer) forA/C double bed room +complimentary breakfast free canaoing+free transfer and inclusive of all taxes (12%+5%) with excellent river view and hospitality, we and our many satisfied customers are sure that u will not get a better place than bamboo lagoon for this price

Please note that this is not a home stay this is a 3 block building with one more block under construction almost 70m away and having 2 cooks, 2 boat men, one manager and 2 cleaning staff at your disposal

I keep this review opened in front of traveler community to assess the facts

We welcome u once again and get satisfied

Regards

Bamboo lagoon team

We stayed @Bamboo Lagoon for a day and people out there made our stay a memorable one.
The place is very comfortable located on lake side. The rooms were clean and well maintained with excellent service. The food was good and the best we had on our whole trip to Kerela(Homemade food). People were very nice and friendly catering to our every need.

The best part was the canopy ride on our arrival from the shore to the resort(It was a bit scary though :D)

Room Tip: Don't go for a Suite no proper ventilation is there in that room...

Dear Valued Guest,

Thanking you for visiting us and encouraging review

Kindly note our following clarifications
We do have a motor boat to ferry passengers, we don’t opt to use it except certain cases as a part of our environment policy,
Regarding suit room this room is having 2 big windows which can opened we did not provide open able ventilation because providing so will affect quality of air-conditioning
We welcome you again and provide an opportunity for us to serve you again

Thanks and regards

We are a family of 3 (including 7 years old son) from Hyderabad/Dubai and have chosen this resort for our family vacation.We stayed 2 nights(Plus one night on house boat) and we are very happy with the whole experience. We especially liked the clean rooms(A/C) and delicious food served by resort people . Also the service was great with friendly staff and myself and my son loved the fishing experience!! The little boat service provided by the resort for transport and to the nearby Ayurvedic massage center was also a good experience!!

We are very happy with the care taken by the owner Mr.Jayachandran and the manager Mr.Sharat.Overall we had a great experience and we really hope they continue to maintain the place well at a reasonable price.We will definitely stay in Bamboo Lagoon next time when we visit Alleppey.

Room Tip: All the rooms have back water view but front side resort rooms have a better view.
