“Gift of a lifetime”
Reviewed 21 January 2014

Everytime you go there, and everytime you will have a soothing, awesome experience. Just forget the world and connect with beauty of nature all around. It is indeed a hidden gem while you have time to spend time for yourself and time to spend for your loved ones. Go there and forget the world. We boarded Punnamada houseboats during our honeymoon trip last year however, we felt like connected. I personally would like to thanks the houseboat captain and crew on behalf of the hotel. They were generous and well disciplined. They greet you in a traditional manner. Will remember Dennis and Pauline too whom we find on the way in nearby boat. Punnamada is better than other boats and will offer you good food. Need to be on time for check in so that you don't miss all those moments. In night you can visit nearby village and purchase some nice handicrafts. All the very best...

Room Tip: As per your requirement you can choose you will stay single in the houseboat or you can stay with ot...

This is the best place to unwind your self for a short break. very quite place no disturbance. The room are very nice and clean. once your are there you will be pampered by the way they treat us. Breakfast is very nice and tasty. The restaurant part the chefs are very skilled they can make us any type of food to our taste. In fact my stay was only for 2 night but it was like one month that how we are rejuvenated. I would certainly visit this place again.

Room Tip: all the room in the resorts is very nice so don't have to worry about which room to select.

A beautiful hidden property. You definitely wouldn’t repent time spent here. The location is great (next to the Vembanad Lake). The restaurant offers tables next to the lake and the food is amazing. It is a small property nestled next to the lake, but very warm and cosy. The approach runs through a couple of villages and is really something. The resort offers an excellent spa as well as a few recreational activities. We spent an entire evening cycling across the villages nearby, since the resort had quite a few available and a helpful guide, encouraging us to explore village life on our own. Exploring the backwaters is super easy since the boat can snuggle up right outside your door if you’re staying in the lake facing villas and the staff will readily arrange for a boat. Rooms are well maintained and clean.

Room Tip: Must try the food. You would literally eat out of their hands and still not get enough. The use of s...

Absolutely loved Punnamada Resort. The service is wonderful, we were treated like royalty from the moment we arrived. The setting is breathtaking, right by the lake, the rooms and buildings are unique and very stylish, beds comfortable. It is immaculate and had everything you could want. We took a three hour boat ride on the hotels shikara, it was wonderful. The treatments we had were very good, very relaxing and the food and staff in the restaurant are of a high standard. Breakfast is great too. I have nothing but praise for this place and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in the Alleppey area. The highlight of our three week trip in India without a doubt.

When we checked the website for photos, it didnt really prepare us for the actual beauty of the property. The entire property is beautifully planned and quite breathtaking. The rooms have an old world feel to them yet keeping in mind indian aesthetics .
We had booked a room in december 2013 for two nights . On reaching we were informed that we had been upgraded to the rooms facing the backwaters and the view was just awesome. Every morning we woke up to see the sunise on th backwaters from our room! Also they have a sunset cruise which is complimentary to all the guests.
They also have some interesting activities like nature walks or cycling in the village or toddy tapping which again are complimentary.
Punnamada also arranges for shikara rides and we booked a boat for 3 hours just for the two of us. We truly felt like royalty! The boat took us through the narrow bylanes and we got a glimpse of kerala rural life.
The resort was very customer friendly and we loved our stay here.
The relationship manager was always there to talk to the guests and take care of their every whim. Would love to go back there sometime!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the backwaters have a great view and you can see the sunrise from your room itself.

If you are looking to charter a houseboat for the day, look no further than Punnamada. Truly a fantastic way to see the Kerala Backwaters. Great food, great setting on the lake and beautiful landscaping.
