“Amazing honeymoon”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

We had a perfect honeymoon at this Resort After few days at goa, two days at this hotel was wonderfull. It's a very romantic place, with a beautiful lake side,very calm and peacefull,village peoples and staff are very help full,they had organised a nice flower decorated house boat and nice candle light dinner for us!
The tour in the River is nice by canoie, and so clean rooms,they had offered a free boat ride up to bus station

we strogly recomend this place for medium budget travellers

Room Tip: select small room which they charge around 1500

RESORT IS VERY NICE.
GOOD AMBIANCE.
ON THE EDGE OF BACK WATER. ITS LIKE AN ISLAND.
FOOD IS ALSO VERY NICE.
ONLY THING I WOULD LIKE TO DRAW YOUR ATTENTION AT IS PLEASE PRE COMMUNICATE THE FOOD PRICE. I.E. DINNER PRICE. THEY CHARGE RS. 150/- PER PERSON! YES THE FOOD IS GOOD. BUT THE CHARGE IS VERY HIGH COMPARED TO CHOICES GIVEN. THEY GIVE FIX ONE SABJI, DAL, RICE, CHAPATI IF ORDERED AND SOME SALAD! BUT IN NO CASE ITS WORTH 150 Rs. per person. If you order some extra thing, say one sabji, it will cost you another Rs. 150/-! When we stayed there and asked in advance, they dint bother to clarify that its 150/- per person! and due to that, our 3 days stay cost us so much. if you will take 1500/- to 1800 rs. room, you will get one lodge type room with no window! and it is so small that one can not walk properly even.
so keep this in mind while booking the room.
The room service is available but every time you have to keep asking the boy over there to clean the room.
for eg we ordered food in room and we had it then they took away the utensils but dint bother to clean it up till another day untill we forced them to do the same.

We chose bamboo lagoon based on trip advisor reviews for 4 days stay and needless to say , bamboo lagoon is one of the best upcoming backwater front resorts . Right from the owners of the resort to the house keeping lady, everybody is committed to offer great service.
Place,staff and food : All were an experience in it self. Mr Jose was the star of the resort, who is all in one. He is always with a smile and very welcoming personality. Never die attitude and was at our sericce at all times.Before going to this place, we were little concerned about our 3 year old daughter's food arrangements but was very happy with the food there. Cannot forget to comment about Mr Vimal who was on his toes to get us what we wanted. Moopen who rows the canoe was there for us to move around:). Rooms are very neatly maintained. Value for Money !

The Resort is located in an island with beautiful view of the backwaters It's a small resort with seven rooms. the resorts exteriors look very cute and beautiful, it feels like home here.

The rooms were small but clean and the cook Mr Jose was there at service with a smile on his face always. The food was very tasty, my wife liked the food too much.
A private canoe of the owner was always available. We did some fishing sitting on the banks of the back waters outside the resort.

The one thing anyone first looks for in a room is cleanliness which the rooms lack. Especially the toilets are poorly maintained. Does not have the basic requirements like water glasses or even a phone to call for one(they have a call bell although)We booked one night here purely on the comments on trip advisor and sadly the hotel hasn't lived up to it. However the staff are very co operative and friendly. They do take a bit of time but thats the least of my necessities here.
They did arrange excellent and affordable cab services which I must say after staying 3 nights at lake palace resort were not able to get us this service.

we offered you our best service and rooms which is proivided for thousadnds of travellers who are visited us,our place is well admired by travellers for cleanness and food,till today we have not got any compliants

it seems u had a bed experiance at lake palace resorts we doubt this may be a reflection of their serivce ,also our policy not allowing guests to consume alcohole in public however guests are free to drinkany thing the want in side rooms ,may be you are up set because we did not allow you to sit and drink out side which in turn agnist law of this place and may cause incoviniance to athor guests

regarding telehone etc. we have provided intrenal call bells in every room and our staff is sitting just a call away

The Bamboo Lagoon Resort was the perfect place to stay in Alleppey. Most importantly the treatment we received there from the staff, specially the cook was just overwhelming. The Resort is located in an island, the silence of the backwaters at night, the total environment was something to experience. The rooms were small but clean, and the cook was there at service with a smile on his face always. I loved their hospitality the most.
The owner provided us with his Shikara, a beautiful Shikara ride to unwind Kerala backwaters, I found out while other Shikaras were crossing us that ours was the best and most clean one. I will definitely recommend people to stay in this resort if you are going to Alleppey.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a mirror in the room. Our room had a mirror in bathroom only, I found it difficu...
