This was my third visit to this property in 7 years. The facilities and quality of the service are one of the best I have ever come across. I would like to express my sincere thanks and appreciation to the staff and chefs in their restaurant who went out of the way to prepare allergen free but extremely tasty food for a youngster in our large family. This has been one outstanding feature of this trip. The well kept clean cottages, beautiful environment, extremely friendly and helpful staff and the complimentary boat ride were all adding to the quality of Backwater Ripples, which I hope to revisit in future too......Just one thing that could be better is the state of the approach roads which has consistenty been poor all these years; but then that's not the responsibility of the Resort. I guess other politico-economic forces at play for this as the roads in the opposite direction are well maintained!!!!
