We travelled to Allepey this March,2012 and were put up at Citrus Retreat@ Allepey. The property is splendid and gives a much needed break from the mad city life. Located along the backwaters of Allepey, this resort is abt 2 and half hrs drive from Kochi. It has the backwaters on one side and paddy fields on the other side!! :)
We stayed in the Lake facing room - which was extremely spacious and well equipped! The service was impecaable, every request was fulfilled immediately. They were v courteous n ever smiling, warm and friendly. Gave us some good tips and encouraged us to use different facilities that the hotel offerred us.
The best part of our stay was the complementary sunset cruise that they offer to all their guests, its a 1 hr trip in their houseboat along the backwaters of Allepey, you get to see some of the most breathtaking sights - just out of one of Mani Ratnam's movies.
They usually have a buffet in the afternoon, which was quite a good spread. Their food quantity is quite good. At dinner time, they also have regular classical dance performance.
On the whole a superb and fantastic stay, definitely an must visit for all!!
P.S.: The only not so great thing abt this property is that it is accessible by jetty only and not by road, can get a little taxing if you have too much luggage.
