“Excellent budget home stay!”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

Stayed in this resort from 13'th to 15'th August 2013. Located in a scenic and isolated place.

Pros:
1. On the very edge of the backwaters. Awesome ambience.
2. Limited rooms, hence doesn't feel crowded.
3. Promptly attended by the resort folks Rajith and Abhi.
4. Economical/Budget friendly. (For the Stay, excluding food)
5. Gives the real feel of backwaters as it's located on an island and is accessible only by boat.

Cons:
1. Food is over priced (charged for individual items) and lacks variety. Breakfast was free but gotta eat what is prepared. No choice).
2. No geyser in room. So people with kids watch out as the water is ice cold.
3. Toilets could be better.

Do not expect a star rated pampering. However definitely does justice for what we pay. Quite surprised to hear they accept cards despite the locality. Rajith, the resort's point of contact/owner was prompt in arranging whatever the tourists needed. Kudos. Definitely worth staying there. You wont regret.

I stayed in Bamboo Lagoon over a weekend in February and it was a very charming experience. The place although not very flashy is ideal for a place like Allepey. The people are very warm, helpful and knowledgeable. They arranged for us a very scenic shikara ride, and an excellent message at a SPA nearby. The highlight is the free boat transport..by a very enthu .."thatha" which was very memorable. The view is not that great..but you cant get everything for the price. Would recommend the place for short weekend stays.

Room Tip: take the lagoon facing rooms..for decent views

I would like to help readers by providing good analysis so that it will be helpful for deciding priorities.

Pros:
- Excellent picturesque location: On a backwater island.
- Enjoyable start to the stay- Pick-Up by a small boat
- In budget range ~2K+
- Not much crowded, quiet, small, comfortable place
- Good non-veg food
- Clean rooms, nice service by Joseph the cook and Anup.

Cons:
- Small rooms(Just as sufficient with basic amenities and AC)
- Veg food not so good(All over Kerala anyways)

Overall it was a very good experience, we were on our honeymoon and this place would be a really nice place for honeymooners!

Our stay at Bamboo lagoon was a memorable one. Really best place to check in at allapuzha. fantastic back water resort. To feel the essence of backwaters. Their hospitality and service is so good. Food is delicious, you need not try for an alternative. Cheta's cooking is awesome and magical. Credits to his splendid Tea. Mr.Anoop is friendly and he is free to give good information, suggestions. All the staff right from room keeper to gardeners are keen in maintaining the quality of service and keeping up the reputation of the resort.

IF you really want to feel the backwaters of kerala then this is the place.

I basically wanted to experience life in Alleppey and got exactly that.. There is a tour via boat you can take for 1-3 hours for about 400 Ruppees. In addition there is a menu of omlets, rice, nann, curry, and beers. I stayed for 2 nights and while the wifi in the outer area was strong, wifi signal IN my room was non existant. They need to upgrade the coverage to the outer room areas.

Room Tip: Bring bug spray or a net, the outer / cheaper rooms will need it.

I stayed with my family here during the end of May 2013. Booked at short notice, it turned out to be a great resort and the highlight of our vacation. Located next to the backwaters, we enjoyed the boathouses sailing past through the day and those anchored close by. Room was clean albeit small/cramped but well furnished, with good AC. Service was great and courteous, food was great -tasty and homely. Jose is a great cook-thanks.Anoop the Caretaker/Manager was smiling & always helpful. The resort's Shikari Boat service was most enjoyable. Parking of our car was arranged in secure place before the channel. The only jarring note (if I can call that) was that we had to use a small boat every time to cross the channel -something we are not used to and therefore scary.
