We stayed in the penthouse while we were there. Overall the staff was polite, trustworthy, and and at times went out of their way to help us. They even went to the train station to buy a ticket for us. The location was great as well. The beach was pleasant and there were good lounging spaces outside. Our one gripe...

We stayed in the "penthouse", the most expensive of this hotel's rooms, and the price was certainly well above the average for the area. The floor was studded with bolts that made walking an exercise in obstacle avoidance. The room had a single, rusting fan that simply moved the room's considerable collection of dirt slowly around, but failed to cool...

I want to preface this review by saying that while paying the bill, I had a face-to-face discussion with the owner to raise my concerns and offer feedback. I was trying to avoid writing a negative review and genuinely wanted to share my thoughts for improvement (as a note in each room asks his guests to do), but the owner...

We stayed here for a few nights and used it as a base to explore the local area by scooter (Marari Beach etc.) Whilst the room wasn't the most spacious or the most luxurious, the location was good - you could hear the sea from the room. Much quieter staying here than in the centre of town. Harris the owner...

I stayed at Mandala's for two nights at Mandala last week and loved it! Very basic rooms, but who cares when you are right on the beach? Harris the owner is such a gem, he organised for me to go on a backwater canoe ride (such fun!). The food service is a tad slow, but who cares when you are...

We arrived 2 couples at the mandala after reading the reviews, and got 2 rooms- one was at the back- the joint showers and the moldy smell was not worth the 1200 rs. The other room- the one facing the beach was basic, rotten shower and pretty run down for 2200rs! The only good thing was the view. The "restaurant"...

Stayed in the bamboo hut, which of course was basic. Yet that rounded the beach feeling off and is fair considering the price. Mandala is small with only a handful of rooms and thus you immediately get to know the other guests, which in our case were all Western backpackers like us. Harris who runs the place is very nice...

We headed straight for this place on the basis of the excellent review in the Lonely Planet Guide book. Most of the reviews on various websites were all ravingly positive, and all mentioned the owners by name as being part of their great experience. Only one review that we could find noted the fact that there were new owners very...

I sent an email a month in advance to book the penthouse. I even called him because he said the room was free but didn't send me a confirmation email. Then he confirmed the booking on the phone. One day before our arrival I emailed him again to say when we would be coming and first he said he accidentally...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Mandala is a small guest house located on a quite part of Alleppey Beach. It has two basic rooms, one bamboo cottage and another cottage with a great view to the beach. We just started our annex property near Mandala and it got upstair rooms with sea view. All rooms are bath attached and three of them with bath tubs. We organize some trips to the sea with fishermen, to the back waters and we also do BBQ on the beach. You can have a comfortable and relaxed stay over here. ... more   less
