This is one really badly mainted property... If maintained well, it would have been a very good property. I could find cobwebs around the place. The food is good. Try to avoid visiting this property during the month of March - April - May. It is really sultry and you wouldn't want to venture out. The heat would really tire you out.

I came across the resort online while looking for places to stay in alleppey. We got down at the alleppey railway station and the resort had arranged for a pickup therefrom. The resort is about 15 to 20 km away from the station and is actually in Muhamma, not in alleppey. The resort is as beautiful as it looks in the pictures posted. They have lake view rooms and pavilion rooms. The rooms are exactly alike except for the proximity to the vembanad lake which the resort is built on. The resort is pretty new and all the rooms are well equipped and spacious. The staff are extremely courteous and go out of their way to help. They have a swimming pool, cycles, indoor games like carrom, table tennis and a host of other things that make up for the fact that there's nothing else in the vicinity. We did try to venture out but apart from a temple next door, there was practically just darkness everywhere. They also have an ayurvedic doctor visiting from 8 to 8 I think. We were unfortunately not able to get a massage as it was open only for men the day we checked in. The food was average and although a bit spicy, the fish was really fresh. The resort was not too crowded since we visited at the off peak season. The cost of the room came up to RS 4500 for a pavillion double room. If you are looking for a place to unwind and forget about all your worldly worries, this has to be the place to go :) absolutely loved the experience and the serenity and look forward to going there again.

Overall an interesting stay at this play. We a group of 22 members including 10 kids stayed this place for two nights. Rooms were somewhat spacious and bathrooms are neat and tidy with premiums fittings. The best part was the food. Everybody enjoyed the food and the staff were friendly.
House keeping was somewhat average. need to improve a lot. lot of dust on the furniture, even the coffee machine wasn't cleaned properly. Didn't see changing the toiletries. First day even saw half used moisturizer bottle. Thought the cleaning staff was not given much attention to it I believe. ( didn't bother to inform the housekeeping though...)
Looks like the property is not maintained properly, saw lot of cobwebs. A small pond kind a thing near the restaurant filled with lot of grass!

Property being small in area, you can not have a much activities outside.We found it inappropriate being a larger group. We were planned to do lot of activities/gathering outside. And on top, its being summer,it was very hot and humid. So we realised to avoid spending during the summer in case you are planning to spend some time outside your room in these places.

Overall a comfort stay except few minor things like house keeping and maintenance.

Room Tip: Property being small and being a resort if you are expecting a independent cottage with little priva...
