The location of the resort is something that impressed me a lot. Situated at the bank of the backwater in Alleppey and...

Not satisfied with the stay. Booked hotel for 2 nights through one of main travel booking website. The Superior lake view rooms pictures were showing private pool pictures. But when we reached there they provided a Lake view room in 1st floor stating private pool room is different. Was really tired to discuss about the same, took it. Not value...

Hotel was a bit far from Alleppey without anythiong to do in the nearby areas except a shikara boat trip they offer at 800 rupees per hour. Lunch and dinner were average and little pricey compared to the quality they serve, the breakfast was very limited sow we end-up by skipping it. Overall I don't recommend this hotel.

Stayed in Feb 2017, I had a mixed experience, The staff was not so welcoming on arrival. Hotel has got a good ambience though has issues with cleanliness.

The place is nothing big and fancy and yet has a charm of its own. The resort itself is well maintained with simple and basic amenities in place. The rooms are spacious and we stayed in the Superior Lake View Room from where the view of the lake was breathtaking! Since the resort is away from the main road and...

This is a beautifully laid out property and offers an excellent view of Alleppey backwaters. Wake up early in the morning to see the sunrise. Swimming pool is right next to backwaters and looks surreal. Areas of improvement - Wifi, room size and breakfast spread
