Backwaters Ride in Alleppey

Wandering around the small but chaotic city centre, with its modest grid of canals, you'd be hard-pressed to agree with the 'Venice of the East' tag.

"Very scenic resort, ideally located on the Banks of Vembanad lake in Allappuzha. My wife and I spent 3 days on January 2016 at this resort. Ayurvedic massage and all meals were included. The lakeside rooms are spacious and have excellent view of the lake and House Boats that roam the lake. Vishnu and Leon at the reception were very friendly and helpful. The variety and quality of food in restaurant was excellent. Shiva, restaurant manager, made sure we well taken care of. The Ambience and the scenic facility is much better than Kumarakom, in my opinion. "

"I have stayed in this resort for the first time. My friend has recommended this beautiful resort as per their experience. This resort is 4km away from the hush of the town and it stands on the bank of the Punnamada Lake. We stayed in the Heritage Garden Villa and its exteriors are built in typical heritage style with Kerala traditional architecture."

"It's the best in the area. Little ramshackled as there was a leaking pipe in our shower and room. Nothing major. Lake side rooms was great, comfy bed. Lunch by the lake edge and multi beers a winner. Pool was down while we were there, guy looking after it bailed for xmas apparently. So again this place a little rustic. Food didn't make me go wild, but so far it hasn't in Kerela so could just be me. Just went for a bike ride to all the other hotels to check them out, this is the most chilled. Only issue is can't make you a vodka tonic. No spirits on the menu. Family hotel, great location. Luxury houseboat was stunning. Saw 2 rats. But this is India. Is what I am telling myself. Ooh not ill from the food. "
