Beautiful location & set up... from where you can quickly escape into the backwaters, witnessing the lifestyle & culture of the locals. A unique way to enter the resort, where you are taken on a small boat across a water body to directly inside the property. Nice, cozy rooms & good staff!!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the resort lake offers you a beautiful & expansive view

I've visited many hotels but this hotel is one of the best hotels. I visited this april and climate was humid but I enjoyed the stay here. good service by staff and food was bit cheaper as compared to other hotels. worth to spend 2 days here where you can do fishing , pedal boating. Only drawback is that its very far from alleppy and you will not get any other hotels or shops nearby this hotel but this hotel provides you everything what you are looking for during stay..

Visited kondailip with family. The place is awesome and hospitality is good. Tucked in backwaters and it would be great to visit in December when weather is bit cool. The rooms make and feel are traditional kerala style. It reminded me of my child hood days staying in such place. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Late evening boat ride through the backwater canal to beach is awesome. The resort also has pedal boats and can cherish this experience in backwaters near resort early morning or late evening. Food is good and try out their traditional kerala dishes. Really awesome. Breakfast can be better.
One feedback though to resort management is that make shift arrangement for massage while their regular people were off duty on the day I visited was not up to the mark of expectation for ayurvedic massage in Kerala. It would be great if you can make alternate arrangements with professionals instead getting inexperienced or untrained people. Otherwise, it was a pleasant stay and memorable experience. Please keep up the good work and looking forward to visit again during non-summer season :-)

Room Tip: All the rooms are good. Ask for ones directly opposite to backwater entrance in to the resort locati...

When we first saw the resort and room we were rather disappointed as it is rather basic. However we had booked a full two,weeks with an Indian tour company for a combined price so did not know how inexpensive this place was. We had previously been to the 5 star Kumarakom Lake Resort so it would be unfair to compare them. Room, Food and Resort were all simple by European standards but the staff were wonderful. I would give it 5 stars for value for money.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to review our property.
We truly value the opinions of our customers and we apologize that we did not meet your expectations during your stay at Kondai Lip Resort.
As you have mentioned, Kondai Lip is really inexpensive (our rates will be four times lower) when comparing to Kumarakom Lake resort and will certainly reflects in the facilities offered.Kondai Lip is not built with luxury and our cottages are heritage homes (more than 100 years old) translocated from various places in Kerala and always prefer to be more close to the nature.Providing our guests with the best possible hospitality and service has always been our prime mission and your comments on our service really made our heart filled with joy and also motivate us to serve better.

If your travel plans bring you back at Kerala Backwaters, I would love to have an opportunity serve you again. We hope to see you again in the future and wish you the very best.

Best Regards,

VAISAKH GEORGE
