This place is awesome specially the lake facing rooms. One can take a Shikara ride in the lake and backwaters right from the resort. Sitting on the lakeside benches or in your balcony and witnessing the sunrise between 6 to 6 30 am is as spectacular as it gets

We were a family of 2 adults and 2 children and stayed a night in 17th December 2016. As it was our only night in Alappuzha, and we didn't have time to do a houseboat stay, we felt that staying at a hotel on the backwaters would be a great option. So for this purpose the hotel served well. It...

We spent only one night here. But had a great time. Lovely cottages facing the lake. Nice small & clean pool. Staff polite & helpful. Rooms are spacious & clean. You can take the backwater trips from their jetty. Was not very happy with their food but had a decent & basic buffet spread. Overall a great place to stay.

I don't understand how came some people get such awesome experiences. Because i went to this place after reading reviews from TripAdvisor but i will never recommend this place to any one. Back water is just a gimmick. It is fill of Pistia stratiotes which makes the look pathetic. Starting from Rooms, they were nice and tidy. I liked it...

Good location, Good property, good food, good people. Rooms are very clean and tidy. Don't miss near by island boat tour. And also the sunrise. They need to have more kerala cousins in their food. Recreation room needs to be better maintained.
