We had travelled as family to Kerala (4 adults + 1 child) and this was the only resort which provided family rooms accommodating all of us which was a big plus. We stayed only for 1 night here and the duplex room was very comfortable. We even had our own verandahs providing for a great idyllic setting by the water....

The property is well built and well spread and beautifully located along the backwaters. The Front desk is modest and with hardly any facilities- but is neat and clean. The staff at the front desk is good, but not excellent. The lawns and surroundings are well maintained and kept. The rooms are adequate size. Clean. Have a well equipped Mini...

Highly over rated place. This should be rated 2 star. Worst management ever for such expensive place. Front desk people don’t even know, how to greet people. I did not see any of the staff smiling in my 2 nights stay there. Room was average and bathroom was stinking. After a day excursion, when I came back in the night,...

Great place to just relax and watch the lake. Quiet and well spread out property and very tastefully designed. Some problems with air conditioning. Nothing very extraordinary about the buffet breakfast. We had a problem with the a la carte menu as the choice for vegetarians is very very limited. But will go back for the peace and quiet.

From Kochi Airport we were driven straight to Backwater Ripples Hotel. This was soon after the Rs:1000/- and Rs.500/- Indian Rupees Notes were declared void and India was facing a sort of financial upheaval. Most of us had old Indian Currency, and the Hotel was not prepared to change our currency or even our Dollars. This was the only downside....

This is a very good preference for spending time with family..Its a huge resort placed near the banks of Vembanad Lake. We felt the dishes for lunch and dinner were just amazing..This is specially a home away home..good work by the management.

This place was indeed Paradise on earth. The room was big airy and spacious. In the morning when you wake up you see the boats passing through the canal. The bathroom had a natural sky light where you can see the coconut trees and the moon. Part of the wall is made from Pebbles. Its a great place to relax...
