Deshadan resort although slightly far from the main Alapuzha city is located on the bank of the Vembanad lake, making it quite picturesque and serene. The main grounds are aesthetically designed. The pool is most beautifully located in the middle of the resort overlooking the lake. But the highpoint of the stay for my family and I was the hospitality of the staff. Everyone from the reception desk to the restaurant staff to the room service personnel was welcoming, courteous, prompt and very helpful.
We stayed in the superior lake view rooms, one of which had possibly the best view of the lake. The rooms are pretty decent; well lit, clean and with all the amenities of a 4-star hotel, including tasteful furniture, kettle, round the clock hot water, toiletries and such like. Food in the restaurant was quite nice; the breakfast buffet was decent, though it could do with some more variety. Other than that they also have paid services like a spa, and arrange for boat rides along the lake.
The resort is probably equidistant from both the Alapuzha and Marari beach sides, so we got a chance to enjoy both on the same day in the morning and evening respectively.
The property itself although neat and clean could use some overall refurbishing and maintenance which they say is planned in the coming months. The last 3 kms to the resort also requires some prominent signboards so that the guests don't get lost trying to find it.
Overall, it was a nice experience staying there.

This is in a lovely location on the edge of the lagoon. We had da room in a bungalow which was large, air conditioned and very comfortable. There was a swimming pool in the garden with a few sun beds around and pool towels were provided.

The restaurant is undercover but open at the sides and the food was very good, although if there are several of you it is best to order early and give them a time you wish to eat it. This ensures that everyone's food is ready at the same time.

Stayed here as part of a group of 16 touring Kerala. The location is idyllic on the lake and the rooms were fine - great view from balcony on 1st floor. But spoilt by hopeless service in restaurant at dinner. We were virtually the only people there - ordered our food an hour and a half before we wanted to eat and still they got lots of the meals wrong - they seemed incapable of preparing a lot of the things on the menu.
