Has it ever happened to you that you visit a beautiful place to explore however the resort you choose to stay is so charming that you forget stepping out? Deshadan backwaters resort is one of those places. First thing first. It is not exactly in Alleppey but some 25 KM away from the town. It is located in a village (though the area looks nothing like a village; a small town at best!)
We reached here late in the afternoon after travelling all the way from Thekkady which can be very exhausting if you have a toddler to take care of, though I must admit I was more travel sick than my 1.5 year old daughter. But the sheer charm of this small but gorgeous resort made me forget all the pain. The rooms are actually cottages in different sizes! There is an artificial water-body full of lotus blooms. The open air restaurant actually sits atop the water body giving it an instant beauty.
Step ahead and there is a small but serene swimming pool which adds to the overall calm of the resort. However that is not the reason why you should pick this place over others. Just where the swimming pool ends, there it is; the vembanad lake in all its gorgeousness!!. Yes it is that close to the lake.
Food and is good too and so are the other services however the same problem that we found at most of the places where we stayed all over Kerala. Dinner is not available a-la-carte but as a set buffet. They recommended us to ditch the Alleppey beach and go to Marari beach instead which was great. Only problem; the beach is so secluded that after dark you just want to run back as soon as possible
Overall must consider mostly for it’s stunning location and charming built!!!
