Malayalam Homestay is located a little out of town (but tuktuks and a small ferry are available at short distance) in an absolute wonderful setting, at the waterfront. Looking over the backwaters with a huge glass of pineapple juice, you can watch the boats pass by (only in the early morning when they all leave Allepey, it can get a...

Malayalam Lake Resort is a simple, no frills home stay on the back waters near the Nehru Trophy Race Starting Point so if you were expecting a luxurious hotel, you will certainly not like this. However, it is perfect for a quite, lazy, do-nothing sort of holiday. The best part of the place is undoubtedly the location. I and my...

I went with a group of 3 other girls to explore Alleppey. From the outside, the hotel looks great. The staff are excellent and very very nice. However, we had an absolutely awful experience in our rooms. It may be because it was during off-season, we're not sure why. We arrived late in the evening and didn't enter into our...

We are extremely sorry for the bad experience you had with us. We will look forward that this will never ever happen again. This was an odd and unfortunate incident happened with our esteemed customers. As it is a rainy season here, it slipped our watchful eyes and we give you our sincere apologies. Thank you for your valuable review.

This homestay has a simple standard, but is a small and incredibly charming place down by the water's edge by the channel out to the lake. The atmosphere and the beautiful place must be experienced. Here we sit in peace under the shady trees or on the porch under roof fans and watching boats and canoes gliding past. The standard...

stayed there for one night and as helpful as the owner is, I felt really pressured into booking a backwater tour with him. Which I didnt in the end but instead left the next day. The room was spacious, basic, clean and fine for the price. I dont think I would go back there, it is very far away from...

I stayed here at the recommendation of a friend who had only noticed it on her way out of town and loved the tranquil setting and beautiful build of comfy chairs and candle-lit tables along the water. But what really blew me away, after a month and a half of traveling in India, was the above-and-beyond kindness, helpfulness and knowledgeability...

We stayed here one night, unfortunately our booking got mixed up a bit so we were unable to stay any longer. The best thing about this place is the view. It was so relaxing sat outside our room in comfy reclined deck chairs watching all the house boats go past. They provide breakfast for an added cost (cheap!) which was...

We had a double room on first floor with balcony overlooking the water, which was nice to sit and watch the boats/day go by. The outside fan on the balcony is a blessing, and there is a fan in the room but no a/c. Don't forget the bug spray.
