“Your rejuvenating place”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Stayed there for a day and loved it immensely. The food, staffs, location, maintenance- everything brilliant. Had a evening boat ride in the backwaters, spend other time fishing and riding a canoe. only sound you hear is chirping of birds. all the rooms are nice and clean and have a touch of Authentic Kerala architecture. The best part of my Kerala vacation. the resort is covered by backwater and you need be ferried to to reach the place. rejuvenate your senses.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good but front side rooms which faces the backwaters are best.

Reviewed August 22, 2013

I had been there during my honeymoon in august 2012 for 1 night. It was surrounded by water on all sides and is very calm, beautiful and peaceful. The staff was very courteous and the rooms were spacious and clean. The resort people have arranged for a boat ride in the alleppey back waters and the ride was really memorable. There were also some pedal boats in the lake surrounding the resort which can be used by the people, who are interested.

The only draw back was the candle light dinner by the pool side, which was pathetic. They have arranged dinner at the pool side, which was poorly lit by a street lamp. They have kept one candle on the dinner table just to make it look like candle light dinner. The candle was blown off by wind in the mid of dinner and they have not arranged any alternative. We had to finish our dinner in the poor street light. There were too many mosquitoes and we could not enjoy the food. The menu is also very limited and we have to order the food much in advance. Another problem was the poor lighting in the night times and we cannot roam around freely in the resort during night.

Room Tip: Don't opt for candle light dinner.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to post a review we greatly appreciate your comments.

I am pleased to note that you appreciated our team, location and boating but I do apologies about the candle light dinner that we arranged at the lake side. We do off the nearby street lights while we offer the candle light dinner in the lake side but what happen was unknown. Currently we are in successful doing measures to avoid these mosquitoes and insects by proper waste management and pest control measures. We are seriously in note of the irresponsibility of the F&B staffs when the candle was blown off during the candle light dinner. Also we are in plan to have the lighting in the entire area. Recently we had added lights in few areas in the front side. We do change our menu seasonally and we had finalized to add few more varieties especially in vegetarian,
It is from feedback that guests give us that we try and improve the service at the resort. At your earliest convenience please feel free to contact me personally at any time to discuss your stay further with me.

Kind regards,

Vaisakh George

Kondai Lip resort is an amazing place to stay. It is a must visit place if you are going to Kerala on a tour. The staff is very nice and polite. The quality of their rooms is top-notch. Its clean and very spacious. The food is very tasty and is prepared nicely. You get to do many activities during your stay, which is superb. You can do paddling, boating, fishing, cycling tour (this is at an added cost) We had a great time staying at this place. Unfortunately, we stayed at this place for 1 day, we wanted to stay there for long. It is a very cool and quiet place. My wife and I would like to go to this place again. The resort has been well maintained. Good Luck to the team.

Room Tip: All the room are similar. Make sure that you plan to stay at this resort for 2 days. Its very relaxi...

I was at Kondai Lip resort with my wife and daughter on 4th august 2013. It is island type of resort and we were received by the staff and Manager, we were ferried in a boat which was the first surprise and what a way to be welcomed. It was drizzling a little bit the boat man gave us sufficient number of umbrellas and took us in his boat. When we entered the gate the sight was just wonderful, full of greenery and the guest houses were simply awesome. The room was of traditional style, very neat and the bathroom was very clean. The lunch was served in our room and the food was very tasty and done in Kerala style. In the night it rained heavily and the surroundings looked just beautiful in the lights. The dinner was just yummy especially the Hot and Sour soup which was just fantastic. The next day the rain stopped and we did pedal boating and enjoyed it very much, it rained on and off. The staff were very polite, helpful. The Resorts manager and the manager at the Restaurant were very nice and the service was just wonderful and we are delighted and I should thank Ms Thasni Fousiya (Indiamirrorholidays.com) for recommending me this beautiful resort. I would highly recommend this resort to all the people who want to be in the natural surroundings. I would once again thank the staff of Kondai Lip for making our holiday memorable..

It's about 45km away from Allepy on the way to Cochin. It's a place tucked away from all the busy city life and the tourist crowd of allepey.

The resort is really good and got rooms which are good and gives a lot of privacy. The staff are really healful and their service is really awesome.

The property is surrounded by backwater and there are facilities to go boating and fishishing near by.

A great place for a family's weekend vacation or for honeymooning.

Strongly Recomended.
