Had a delightful stay at the presidential suite of the resort. The suite comes with two bedrooms, one hall and a private pool. Enjoyed the stay and private pool 24 x 7. The restaurant and cuisines offered requires seperate mention. Food is fabulous, with the right amount of flavor and spices. Yummy.

This is an amazing property. Rooms are quite spacious. Food was awesome. The F&B Manager Vishu and his team Kevin, ashik,afredi, benz, rakesh were amazing. Infact, Vishnu got in touch with me before I had checked in asking me re our dietary preferences. Have never ever experienced this before. I would also lime to thank Ashwathy and Chinnu at thr reception for all the help. They were nice and friendly. The only regret is we didn't stay longer at this place. Next time we definitely will do. If in Alleppy please do stay atbthis property.

For the views, for the luxury and for an exceptional hospitality experience, you should choose The world backwater . It was a the most heartening vacation we had till date. The moment you step into the hotel after a long drive up the roads, you realise it's a truly different ambience that awaits you there. The rooms are wonderfully sophisticated, the food pleasing and scenery that is incomparable. The feel of being in the midst of the most intensely serene and pure experience of nature, is something we would want to return The most remarkable aspect is the genteel and courteous staff who greet you with a smile and great warmth. I do have to mention Aswathy, Suraj ,Kevin,Vishnu,Chinnu & Adrash ,also every single member of the Team who made us feel special and at home with their sweet gesture each time they met us. Thanks and lots of love to the whole team. Will surely return for a longer stay. Food : The hotel restaurant serves the most exclusive gastronomic delights and the morning buffet spread was awesome.
