"An impressive and unique place but needs updates"
Location, layout, pool and plantings (flowers, bushes, trees) are truly impressive. All rooms arrayed around lakes. Dining room décor and location overlooking lake is upscale and pleasant. But definitely needs some fixes to live up to its “luxury” claims. Bathrooms in our “villa” badly needed updating. Gym was really disappointing: no AC and half the ceiling fans didn’t work so unpleasantly hot; equipment old and rusty; no TVs or even music. Free evening cruise was really delightful. Free ferry into Alleppey was very useful. Overall, enjoyed the stay for the uniqueness of the location, the staff tried, but it was not up to the quality of other 5-star places we stayed at in India. Hopefully, the renovations currently in progress will remedy the current shortcomings. Note that it is 2 hours plus to the airport, so make arrangements ahead of time.

Traditional ambience, but very comfortable. The staff is very friendly and goes out of the way to accommodate your needs. You could pretty much step out of the hotel and hop into a shikara for a boat ride.

The resort is located in an island. Very friendly check-in. Rooms are elegantly furnished. Very safe.
I was staying in the 1st floor. I can say it’s one of the most distinctive and beautiful resort you will find in Allappuzha.
Resort crews are very friendly and helpful. Food is also great!
