From the moment I found the listing for Bella Art and Meditation House I knew I'd found a special place. It lived up to all expectations. As most travellers to Alleppey, we wanted to experience a night or two on a houseboat. The search was proving painful so I decided to try and find a place to stay overnight in... More

Bella is located on a quiet street just behind the busieness of Allepy. We stayed for one night, before two nights on the backwaters. The rooms are immaculate and beautifully decorated. Natasha and Biju are lovely hosts and really went out of their way to make our stay easy. They arranged pick ups for us, a houseboat and held our... More

Sadly we only got to stay here one night (they were receiving an award the next night!) but I can really recommend a stay with Biju and Natacha who are both very friendly and welcoming. After struggling to get a houseboat sorted for the following day at a reasonable cost (it was Diwali week), Biju was able to arrange one... More

This is a magic place, in a magic spot in India...And more important, Natacha and Biju are magically wonderful and friendly. My best time in Keraka! There is much more to say, but it would go over the 200 required characters, and its best for you to find out by yourselves... Michel Brillié in Paris October 14

I stayed in three different homestays in southern India and Bella was the best one. From the start, they were quick on replying to my emails and on helping me plan my backwaters tour by email. Once I got there, Natasha and Biju were more than welcoming, making me feel at home. They were great guides of allappey. Ask for... More

Wonderful place to stay operated by two very kind and helpful hosts. Bella is a ten minute walk to the main shopping area or eight minutes to the finishing point for houseboats. The spacious rooms are well appointed with comfortable beds and clean linens. Due to its almost rural location there is no noise to disturb your stay. There are... More

We stayed here in December 2013. A clean, relaxing and overall lovely place to stay. Bijou and Natasha were very welcoming and very helpful. They provided us with a superb self drawn map/guide and arranged our day trip into the backwaters, which was great. The food was good and we were always well cared for. Although not very centrally located,... More

It was a really nice place and lovely owners! The room was great and we can absolutely recommend it. Very friendly and international atmosphere. Even though we enjoyed our stay it would have been nice have some restaurants closer to the B&B.

Biju and Natasha (and Jacko the dog) are wonderfully welcoming, providing lots of information, arranging for houseboat, autorickshaw, taxi, massage etc. The place is serene oasis in the midst of a neighborhood not far from the bustling main shopping road.
