My wife and I have lost count of the number of times we have stayed at Malayalam over the years, (we think it's about eight times) but we make it a point of visiting regularly every 2-3 years. If one is expecting to stay at a super deluxe place then it definitely isn't. What Malayalam is a wonderfully spotlessly clean, welcoming family Homestay. The rooms do not have A/C but the overhead fans are excellent. Over the many years that we have visited Malayalam we feel that we have formed a very close family relationship with Thomas, Rosie, Tocil (& now also with his wife), Jeswin and last but not least Jose. They have always welcomed us as such. We must add here that friends that we have recommended that they stay at Malayalam have felt the same warm welcome. We always stay in the cottage and what we get is relaxing tranquility. There is nothing that compares with just sitting there on the veranda watching the incredible view and the sight of boats (especially the famous houseboats) go by, and for the early risers the sounds of the dawn chorus and the eventual sunrise. Over the many years that we've visited the only thing that has changed is that Rosie no longer cooks her wonderful meals. Having said that Rosie's breakfast is always there and as for other meals Jeswin or Jose can order take away meals for you from menus of local restaurants. If one prefers a meal in a restaurant, there are many to choose from in Alleppy and all are within a short rickshaw ride. Jeswin or Jose are always willing to give helpful advice as to local attractions and what to do and where to buy and also book boat rides and transfers to another location. Before we arrive we are in whatsapp contact with Jeswin and he arranges a car to pick us up from the airport. Every time we leave Malayalam we always ask ourselves when will we visit again. In short we highly recommend a stay at Malayalam Lake Resort

Uniquely RUSTIC wooden style architecture along the Backwaters in Alleppey.
Pros: Location on the canal is a bonus, awesomely nice sitting on balcony and watching boats pass. Host Jeswin was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. Food service was available from outside sources, basic breakfast available but not included with room. Overall an experience you’ll remember.
Con’s: 1st floor room has no AC , ceiling fan and mosquito net. AC rooms available in 2nd floor.
Daily baths had to be done with buckets b/c I couldn’t get the shower sprayer to work. Hot water was good. Towels desperately need replacing, present ones were in Bad condition.
No bottled water provided in room, if you have a bottle you can fill it up with their filtered water on the property.
Mattress was extremely HARD and made my sleeping uncomfortable.

The Best Resorts and thanks too Jeswin and other too.

We been there for 3 days and we took 3 rooms for our entire family and full stay we felt we are in the home.

Hotel was very beautiful and the room are made by wooden and next to Lake and we sit outside watch the beauty and the boats pass by all day.

If we want make memories it is right place to stay.

Room rate was good and tea and coffee they are offered really good and homemade.

Myself and my wife took massage for 1 hours and we felt very Relax.

Only we did not get late checkout however they arranged something else which appreciable.

Cheers.

Firstly I would like to say that Jeswin is a fabulous host, in fact all the team are great.
Everyone was very helpful, helping us order food, arranging the Scooter and Ayurvedic massages.
The room was fine… however the constant steam of houseboats passing with not only noise but incredible pollution makes it very uncomfortable.
To be fair if you just staid one or two nights you will have a lovely time. If you want to experience the backwaters it’s great.
You are quite a way from town so having transport is a good idea.
The massages are good and a very good price.
Internet is excellent and lots of hot water.

We are so very grateful to the team at Malayalam Lake Resort. We arrived Saturday as the Coronavirus kicked off big time in UK and India.We were very worried and on arrival made the decision cut our holiday short and fly home immediately .
Team were so understanding and helpful offering us their computer and arranging booking of flight ✈️ tickets.
We were sad to leave this wonderful place which is set back of the river so peaceful and chilled. Our room was perfect and spotless overlooking the water.
We will definitely return to this incredible homestay.
Thank you once again to the team.

It feels like you are in a completely different place, after you travel trough the busy city, this place is so peaceful. Nice view on the lake with the houseboats. The hotel adds to this feeling, it is completely build constructed in wood. Very friendly staff, anything you ask they will assist you.
And my wife was asked by the owner to teach him a Jamaican song. I love this place.

To the best place to stay in Alleppey and I call it my home in Alleppey the " Malyalam lake resort". Run by the very cheerful and happy living family I have ever seen. Jeswin the owner was just like an elder brother (Chetta) who guided us in everything we did during course of our stay, I say Jeswin Chetta was our once stop solution in Alleppey. He arranged us everything A-Z. The food he served us was heavenly 😍. Jeswin's family always brought smile on our face. Special thanks to his mother for making us the best chutney of our lifetime. His little nephew (aniyan) was a gem💙. His father, brother and sister in law were extremely supportive. I love their family and the hard work they are doing. Their work inspired me a lot. Lots of love to them, May God bless their family and their business to reach heights. Can't wait to see them all over again and go back to my home in Alleppey.

Amazing.

The host Jeswin is fantastic. Rooms are spacious but the location is above all a winner. Imagine sitting in your antique lounge chair watching the boats go by. The view is amazing.

They don't have a kitchen but a small breakfast is served and it's delicious. However you can order and it gets delivered.

Everything you need Jeswin will arrange.

We loved it.

This place is something more than gorgeous. It is directly overlooking the backwaters so one can get the perfect feel of being in Alleppey. You can sit there and watch the beauty and the boats pass by all day.
Jeswin and team were very hospitable and welcoming too. The only problem is that it is a bit on the inside and there are only few lights at night time.
Please note that this place is for adventure lovers and not for people who do not like to be near nature as there are insects. This should be avoided by old people because it has a lot of walking and dark entry at night time.
Otherwise it is just beautiful and has left a memory of a lifetime with us.
Just book here, do not think twice. Go for it. Unfortunately only 5 star rating is available, I would have given 10 rating. It was just amazing.
