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.

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.

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.

Everything you could want right on the Alleppey backwaters. Malayalam is magnificently run and has an unparalleled warmth to it. Rooms are extremely clean and location is excellent. We had the most peaceful 3 nights stay - thank you for absolutely everything, you are wonderful!

Such a friendly and authentic place. Beautiful wooden house. Welcoming staff and great service. Gorgeous food too. Very close to/from Allepey HB jetty. And most of all, so peaceful with an amazing view on the backwaters. No words to describe sunset/rise there. We fully recommend.

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
