These villas are slightly out of town by the lake, but easily reached by rickshaw. Nice room, clean and quiet. Nice to sit in a hammock by the lake. The owner went out of his way to make my stay a pleasant one, he drove me personally to town to change some money and arranged my boat tour the next...

We were really looking forward to our stay at Ashtamudi Villas having read many of the five star reviews, our experience on the day of check-in was very different and resulted in us booking two nights in a nearby hotel. Having been given very little information regarding check in, payment info etc I was keen to ensure I had re-confirmed...

Room clean, towels smelly and food haphazard with few alternative places to eat. Menu available but orders to be placed hours before. The hotel situated at end of dirty lane with steep hill. Collective opinion of other guests was concern for overrated reviews. Joseph only concerned with profit making. A rather unpleasant habit of talking and belching while eating and...

Prabha is kind and generously drove us to an elephant parade at a busy temple festival. He also drove us to the train station and gave us good advice about the trains. We stayed in the separate cabana in the back corner. It's great and worth the extra rupees. The helpers fixed simple and good food too.

Once we arrived a very friendly host Sunil - when asked where we could get some fresh coconuts nearby asked one of his colleagues to climb a palm tree in their garten and get a few for us... that's the kind of proactive approach you would not expect :) Makes you feel like arriving to your friends for holidays.

The best part of Ashtamudi Villas is its tranquil setting right beside a lake. The rest of the checklist is not good at all. The cottages do not have airconditioning. The roof is not insulated and after a hot day, the room is uncomfortably warm. The bathroom was like a sauna. To sleep, you might wish to turn on the...

Very good place! Highly recommended! The staff is very friendly and helpful. They organised our very best 3h canoe boat tour (we did a lot in whole kerala) for 750 pP inkl. 1,5h Tuktuk ride, helped us to book a domestic flight, reservated tickets for us on the ferry to Allepey and arranged they to stop directly in front of...

My poor review of Ashtamudi Villas is based on the booking experience. So, shall we get to the story - Day 1 - Received a rate quote from Prabath Joseph, but no further responses. Day 6 - I call; And was told I didn't seem serious because of my Indian name (huh?). Booked it anyway (silly me). Day 19 (A...

We will repeat everything others have said. Lovely room, good hot shower, good wifi, brilliant garden location on the shores of Ashtamudi Lake. Other reviewers mention the hammocks and how helpful Joseph is, if a bit preoccupied at time, but he gets things done. Helped us to get to Krishnapuram palace, Munroe Island canoe trip and our houseboat trip. Even...

We arrived in Kollam after a long train and tuktuk journey and loved turning up here. Joseph greeted us at the entrance and showed us to our room. We went for the slightly cheaper option but there did not seem to be any compromise on quality. The room was beautiful and clean and the bathroom had a great shower. Joseph...
