Deshadan Backwater Resort
Ranked #8 of 70 Hotels in Alappuzha
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 August 2014

We gathered about 25 of us at this lovely resort last weekend.the cottages were great and the food was simple,excellent and not too oily. A great weekend,we celebrated my mothers 80 th birthday.The mattress was too soft for my back. The next day the masseur at the Ayurvedic massage centre gave me a good back rub. The restaurant arranged a birthday cake which was also good and tasty.
Good place for a family get together,since if u are a group of 25 to 30,u can have the entire resort to yourself

Getting here is a little tricky. My suggestion is to call the hotel receptionist and ask him/her to explain to the taxi driver. Otherwise, if you have a GPS enabled phone, google map is quite accurate to guide you there. Its about 2 hours drive from the airport.

All the effort of getting there will paid off once you arrive at the spot. We were not disappointed at all by the crew. It was low season and they may have not been as busy, but nevertheless, i am sure they will perform in a similar commitment in the high season too. Check in was smooth.

The view from the pool facing the lake is breathtaking. Very relaxed and away from all the noisy vehicles and people. The room was clean and comfortable.

You are pretty much dependent on the resort for all your meals, which is ok. Must try their briyani. There are no shops within walking distance from the resort. This maybe the downside of this place. If you take the 3 hours boat ride, lunch can be enjoyed in one of the shops in the village. Authentic, delicious Kerala cuisines.

Overall, excellent experience of Kerala backwaters.

Room Tip: Get the pool and lakeview rooms. Do not take garden view, boring.

We had a pool villa and although it was monsoon season the weather was steaming hot and we could cool down in that amazing pool close to the lake!! We were welcomed with cool melon juice. The food in the restaurant was also good, but as we were the only guests it was a little awkward that the waiter waited all the time close to our table and took the plate away as soon as someone was finished. a little privacy in the background would be better! But overall perfect stay!!

An amazing location, takes away the breath when seen from the swimming pool and when there's an heavy rain, one will say Why Kerala is God's Own land. Like most resorts in Kerala, this place is calm and additionally I did not hear any Toad sounds nor insect problem. Appears they spray insecticide regularly/weekly. Food is average or less, not bad, wrt to Kerala Taste. Its pretty expensive, a Chicken Briyani costs Rs.280/-, a French toast (2 full bread slices) costs Rs.140/-. I had no regrets whatso ever. If food would have been good, this resort would have been GREAT. I went to Kerala only for the rains and the Champakulam boat race.
The staff are extremely hospital and great! A little bigger bed would have been a ideal thing (for a couple with 2 tiny tots the queen size is not at all comfortable). Not much time-pass in the resort its a quite get-away tucked in a great location. Free WiFi was there.
Since its far off from the Alleppey railway station, take a auto(Rs.350-400/-). Alternatively, bus is available, the bus stop name is "Thuri-Then-Kavala" and KSRTC bus runs frequently(Rs.13/- to Rs.20/- based on the type of service) and from the bus stop readily available auto charge Rs.20 or 25/- to the resort. Take Auto from R.station to KSRTC bus stop(~50/-)

Room Tip: Ask them to upgrade to pool-side or pool-view rooms if there's no occupancy and if they oblige i...

Amazing location, the view of the backwater from the room is beautiful. Lacks privacy if we need the view of the back water from the room. nice place quite and calm. Rooms are spacious and need a dressing area too. Privacy is lost if we want to have the view of the backwater, as the bed is right next to the window and the room is next to the path way.
food seems to be expensive, we had ordered for some onion pakoda, tasted awe full full of oil and seems like oil used was old. and decided not to have dinner here, hence had to travel about 20 km to Alappuzha town for dinner. we had stomach full dinner for two and still coasted us less than 2 coffee and onion pakoda, Nice and good staff. Buff breakfast is average, would not have regretted if i had missed it

over all a nice place.

Room Tip: All the room seem to be the same, the rooms near the backwater is good. lake view is the best, but t...
