This Gorgeous property was one big pleasant surprise. Allepey is veritably, the Venice of Kerala. Narrow roads that twine between old, beautiful, classic Kerala homes. The distinct smell of the backwaters, mingle with the smell of exotic spices. You reach the private boat point of punnamada. This is where they take you on their boat to the property. Your experience begins here. Right from the smiling, well trained staff, architecture, food, location... This property I would rate Tops. Immaculately clean lawns, linen that smell fresh & sweet, open to the sky washrooms with wonderful hot water at good pressure. This property is tastefully curated & very professionally run by Mr.Rajan Mathew, who is in charge of all their 3 properties in Kerala as well as their luxury Houseboats. Mr.Mathew is a charming gentleman with years of experience in top hotels across the globe. He engages with all his guests & yet keeps a keen eye on the running of the property. Punnamada is a 10 acre property with exactly 1 Km of water frontage. Their 37 cottages are beautifully styled in laterite & wood paneling. The famed Kerala aesthetics can be seen in every corner of the property. Food in Punnamada needs a special mention. Chefs dish up different cuisines to suit each palette. I however was looking for a traditional meal & boy did I have a feast! From the Kerala boiled rice, the sambar, cabbage thoran, Allepey Fish curry & papadom to top it. This was the soul food I was looking forward to. Their expansive lawns have weddings take place regularly. And I can imagine this as a perfect place for a destination wedding. The Houseboats are perhaps the best i have seen. Completely air conditioned, very spacious & tasteful decor. 10/10 for this property & its excellent management

Hotel's Favourite
My first stay in this hotel was in 2018 & second one in Dec 2020.It's nature friendly resort Located on the bank of Punnamada lake. Specialty of the resort is Kerala style of architecture . friendly staff , we opted a lake view cottage. every thing inside the room was superb comfy bed. loved the open bathrooms . . in one area there was a swing & there are some chairs . the sunset was wonderful experience . the restaurant is spacious, clean, good food & well mannered staff . the only negative point is the access to this property , the public roads are not ok

Thank you madam for your supportive comments about Punnamada resorts , Alappuzha . This resort was closed for almost an year, but we have started operations from January 2021 . We have added a country bar , party lawns ( away from residential area of the resort ) , more duplex houseboats ,and a platform for floating candlelit dinners . Approach roads near Punnamada Resort, Alappuzha is freshly tarred, though it is narrow Hope to see you again in one of our Resorts soon

When we decided to have our daughter’s wedding at Punnamada resort after a lot of research, we were sure about the beautiful moments going to have there for our guests. We had Haldi night on 25 jan and wedding on 27th. What an amazing experience of having wedding on a floating platform while guests enjoy on shore with nature. Truly wonderful staff makes Punnamada resorts special. Amazing food and hospitality. No regret choosing Punnamada resorts for our making our Big day even bigger and memorable. Thank you team Punnamada 😘😘😘
