Malayalam is located on a very quiet stretch of the backwaters, directly on the lake with fabulous views. All Rooms face the waterside but ours was on the first floor for unobstructed access to the aquatic ballet of boats. The best thing about this place is Joss, the dynamic and devoted host who looks after his guests as if they...

The simple downstairs room offered stunning views from the terrace of the boats going by. The staff were so kind and lovely and Joseph did special maps for me every day for walks and ferry rides etc. A lovely end to my Indian aventure

the room is just by the water so you get to experience the boathouse life stile if you like without getting boatsick Waking up at 5.30am for my meditation was never better experience :) the light of the day starting reflected in the water, the sound of the birds talking with each other for tree to tree, fishermen in their...

This was our overnight stop before we went on a houseboat cruise. We were given a clean double room with en-suite bathroom on the first floor. From the verandah, we were able to watch the procession of houseboats on the backwaters as well as a stunning sunset. Mosquito nets are provided, and needed, and insect repellant coils are lit at...

This hotel/homestay has the most beautiful rooms and wonderful hosts. The breakfast they make is great and you can eat at a table right by the water and watch the houseboats go by. Definitely have the pineapple juice- it is so fresh and delicious! We stayed two nights and it was very relaxing, sitting on our balcony reading and enjoying...

My daughter and I were there in December 2016. This is a nice place if you are looking for the budget hotel. Thomas, Rosie and Jose all of them are very helpful and supportive. Hope to visit you again guys.

Second time here and we would recommend. Jose, Jeswin and all the staff are really welcoming and want you to enjoy your stay. The location is ideal but don't really expect to sleep much , the canal may look picturesque but the boats etc start at dawn. The new rooms are big and spacious but not much consideration to noise...

It is very easy to spend hours on the upstairs balcony, watching the house boats go by! The rooms have a period charm. A highlight of our stay was to hire a shikara for a few hours each morning, heading out before sunrise on the waterways. Jeswin and his family are good hosts and provide a pleasant breakfast in the...

The Malayalam Resort is beautifully situated at one of the backwater canals. The staff is very friendly, kind and very helpful, especially Jose helped us where he could. They can also arrange smaller and bigger trips to the backwaters by canoe, smaller boats or big houseboats at short notice. We had one of the upper rooms and were fully satisfied...

Malayalam Homestay is located a little out of town (but tuktuks and a small ferry are available at short distance) in an absolute wonderful setting, at the waterfront. Looking over the backwaters with a huge glass of pineapple juice, you can watch the boats pass by (only in the early morning when they all leave Allepey, it can get a...
