I wanted to stay in a heritage hotel with old fashioned furniture etc so chose this. Alleppy beach is not as nice I expected - rather scrubby and bare. The worst shock was when we arrived there was incredibly loud roadworks right outside the gates. There was also a noisy youth festival down the road and on the other side... More

After the heat of the train and bouncing of the tut tut, it was a relief to arrive here. As soon as we entered the Raheem Residency it felt like we were cocooned in a bit of a bygone era. The staff were friendly and helpful and our room was pretty wow! Ceilings must have been about 15' with a... More

I have a thing for heritage properties, so I chose Raheem Residency during my first solo trip to Kerala. And the hotel didn't disappoint. The rooms are so delightfully old world, yet have everything that a traveler would need today. Everywhere you look, from the door to the ceiling to the bed, there's a piece of history laced with elegance.... More

My mother and I stayed at Raheem Residency for one night. The hotel itself is beautiful with lovely decor, spacious and clean rooms and a lovely pool. The food was great (and they serve alcohol). It is worth checking the status of the roadworks when you book - the Main Street outside the hotel which is right on the beach... More

A friend and I stumbled across this lovely hotel on our trek throughout India. The owners were so hospitable and kind. The price was affordable for us, and we had such a pleasant stay. We were traveling in the off season, and they were very hospitable. I would only caution about going to the elephant orphanage, which is mentioned in... More

Hygiene standards were low and the bed sheets smelled weird. There was a road costruction going on right outside of the hotel. There is also a railway close to the place that you can hear pretty well in the night. The pool felt dirty so we didn't want to swim. Breakfast was by menu and takes a long time compared... More

The hotel itself is beautiful, with high ceilings and vintage finishes. The service is average for what you are paying for and the restaurant is overrated. The construction does not help the ambience of the hotel however the pool is warm and clean.

We arrived to the sound and vibrations due to pneumatic pile drivers being used in the construction of a raised by-pass in front of the hotel. This is not what we had in mind escaping from London. We immediately booked out and found alternative accommodation. The staff did not seem particularly concerned nor indeed helpful. We believe given the nature... More

A comfortable, clean and well maintained historic boutique hotel by the sea but easily accessible to town. Large well appointed rooms, nice pool and good restaurant with friendly service and decent food. Large scale road works are taking place outside the front of the property which, for the moment, detracts from the appearance but didn't affect our enjoyment of our... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Raheem Residency at Alleppey Beach, one hour south of Cochin, is an 1868 colonial property which was passionately restored in a classic, Indian style in 2003 by a small Indo-European private limited company. It is now recognized by the Tourism Dept of India as a genuine Heritage Hotel of India. Originally built by an Englishman, it was the home of the Raheems, an eminent Alleppey family, for one hundred years. Expect an intimate personalized service that respects your privacy in a sophisticated Indian setting with echoes of the Raj. ... more   less
