“Very pretty and quiet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2010

A great place to relax if that's what you are looking for. The larger "queen" rooms were really comfortable and the lake setting was perfect. I appreciated that they rotated the food menus daily - but always featured very tasty local foods. I just wish they had a bar...but I guess its more of a family joint.

The pool was also fine, though a bit small.

My only semi minor gripe is that the location is fairly far from other attractions. I'd recommend you have a car or arrange one if you'll be spending more than a few days here.

This was another memorable trip with club mahindra, I still rememberwhen dad told me about the trip, and i was like kind of shoked as I am gonna bunk my classes.
But now i Fell that is worth bunking.
4 days of my stay wasreally awsome. That was my leisure trip with my family.
I reached there early in the morning and that too not slpet last night. but when i slept there, i got really relaxed. Then I roamed around the hotel, and I surprised to see the view. A hotel on the bank of a lake, looking really good.
the floating cottages i saw first time in india. you have not much places to roam around but, i dont feel any need for it. The veiw was good enough to please me.

That was a good experince for me, with the food also.I was there in mid of the ONAM, and due to that I enjoyed the ONAM food and that too in ONAM style.

Club Mahindra Backwater resort in Ashtamudi gives excellent relaxing experience for a quiet holiday seeker. Our floating cabin was facing vast lake of backwater. We enjoyed sitting in the balcony beside lake for long hours watching lush green trees and fishermen boats. Resort has all amenities and a restaurant with a choice of variety of food. A boat trip in the lake and fishing are some more attractions. In the evening resort activity manager arranges some games and other activities. We also participated in local Onam festival celebrated by resort. Staff is helpful and caring. Overall excellent holiday experience!

Thsi is was not a very good experince considering my earlier experinces with Mahindra Resorts were out of the world. Still Backwatre boat ride and bird watching and lake side view is very good. Best time to visit is Sept to Jan. and you must visit Alleppy and varkala beach. This resort is in development stage and another 6 month it will be really an attarcation. They are also making floating resorts that will be something to watch for.

We stayed here in March 2009 for 3 nights.

The property is excellent with very nice view of the backwaters from each room.

The staff were great and always more than helpful. The ayurvedic spa was also well maintained.

The swimming pool looked clean, but the water was a little salty.

The kids loved the activity center and were taken care well by the staff.

The rooms were nice and clean and the A/C was very good. You can sit in the sitouts for hours together with a book on hand.

The boating organised by them was enjoyed by the kids.

Taste of food was good. however the spread was restricted and there was onlt one restaurant.

Stayed at Club Mahindra Ashtamudi for 2 days with family. The place is right on the banks of the huge lake. The property is new and well maintained. The food was good, particulary the local dishes; however, the continental food was very average. The staff were very helpful in arranging the boat trips and the local sight seeing.

  • Liked — New property - well maintained - right next to the lake
  • Disliked — Very humid place - but you cannot do much about that :-)
