I recently stayed at Backwater Ripples as a part of a destination wedding in the family and I'm extremely impressed by the property. Situated on the banks of Lake Vembanad, Backwater is beautifully spread out with cottages and rooms and has a massive parking lot. The restaurant offers decent Kerala fare and this place also offers a banquet hall that...

When one pays rates such as those for BR, one expects free Wi-fi, however I was deeply disappointed to see there was no free wi-fi. In today's age & time, no internet connection can spoil the entire stay. And is exactly what happened with us. I would not go back there. There are many nearby properties that have lower room...

The setting of this hotel is beautiful over looking the lake but I don't think it is a 4 star. More like 3.5. Service was good but lacks a communal space such as a bar to sit at at night for instance. Food is a bit pricey too. Overall it was a pleasant stay but definitely not a 4 star...

Food is overpriced. It was my son's 3rd Birthday and we approached the manager to get a cake for us at the last minute as we could not get the...

Have stayed there on Jan 25 With family. Very neat and nicely maintained resort. They offer few activities as complimentary such boat rides which start at 1700 everyday. They have small clock tower from where you could sight the sun set and take some good pics. The staffs were very friendly. I personally felt the food prices were on higher...
