This appeared to be an older property, which has been mostly renovated, and is very nice. The rooms were well-appointed and the service was excellent. An upgrade to the Club Level is worthwhile as there aren't a lot of restaurants nearby, so the breakfast in the morning is handy and we we even made dinner out of the evening hors d'oeuvres a couple of nights. The pool and the area around it have yet to be renovated, and are not in very good shape, but that would be my only negative.
A helpful tip regarding transportation....there is a taxi stand just up the road to the left of the hotel. If you go there you can save quite a bit compared to booking a taxi through the hotel. For example, the hotel quoted 1900 INR to the airport, but the same car at the taxi stand was only 1000 INR and they will pick you up at the hotel lobby if you make arrangements in advance. Similarly, transportation to town or to the backwaters in Alleppey is much less at the taxi stand.More
