I have nothing but great words to say about this resort. From my checking in to checking out; the resort took care of me in a brilliant way! I really want to thank Suneesh, Dr Balraj, the reception staff for doing an excellent job! Even, the restaurant staff was great too! I had a stomach indigestion issue and the resort made me a special herbal tea which was really appreciated. The location of the resort is just wow! It’s right by the lake so I booked a shikara boat which picked me up by the lake side and dropped me off there which was so convenient as I didn’t need to go outside the resort to get to the boat. Suneesh did a wonderful job in ayurvedic massages which really helped me to relax and enjoy my time there. I would highly recommend this resort for anyone who is even travelling solo.

We had a pleasant stay. The food was great. The service offered was awesome. A great place for a calm and serene stay. Of course, no bathroom is available on the first floor and the beds on the ground floor weren't very attractive. Spacious swimming pool for good swimming. The view of the backwater is just awesome.

Room tip: Rooms facing swimming pool

Thank you Mr.Denny for a positive review on Tripadvisor
No toilets in first floor – Sir you stayed in a Duplex Villa where downstairs we have a living room with attached toilet and bathroom and upstairs we have only a Bedroom . This villa is meant for a couple , in your case there were more people in room , hence you felt this problem
Beds on the ground floor not very attractive – Ground floor is a living room , where we have arranged extra beds to accommodate more people per room . Extra beds are not as comfortable as beds in bedroom.
However sir , looking forward to see you in this resort again soon , kindly discuss with our marketing OR front office team when you make a booking , we assure to make your next stay more comfortable
Once again thank you very much for your review

Only the location is beautiful. The staff is so incompetent. Our room fuse kept tripping, the reception guy was least bothered inspite of complaining again and again. Finally after I went to reception and shouted at him...he agreed to change the room... The other room given to us had insects and worms in bathroom...not cleaned since ages... Finally I demanded to talk to manager...he arrived at his own sweet time.. and just said a lame sorry. We did not budge. We demanded a compensation or cancellation. Then he gave us a supposedly premium room... It had no hot water..! We were too tired to complain again so we just let go...as we had a long itinerary next day....but a luxury resort after charging 5star rates...has service worst than a motel..

Only the location was a respite as it has direct lake access. But the management needs to buck up!!
No stars if i may

This Gorgeous property was one big pleasant surprise.

Allepey is veritably, the Venice of Kerala. Narrow roads that twine between old, beautiful, classic Kerala homes. The distinct smell of the backwaters, mingle with the smell of exotic spices.

You reach the private boat point of punnamada. This is where they take you on their boat to the property. Your experience begins here.

Right from the smiling, well trained staff, architecture, food, location...
This property I would rate Tops.

Immaculately clean lawns, linen that smell fresh & sweet, open to the sky washrooms with wonderful hot water at good pressure.

This property is tastefully curated & very professionally run by Mr.Rajan Mathew, who is in charge of all their 3 properties in Kerala as well as their luxury Houseboats.

Mr.Mathew is a charming gentleman with years of experience in top hotels across the globe.
He engages with all his guests & yet keeps a keen eye on the running of the property.

Punnamada is a 10 acre property with exactly 1 Km of water frontage.

Their 37 cottages are beautifully styled in laterite & wood paneling.

The famed Kerala aesthetics can be seen in every corner of the property.

Food in Punnamada needs a special mention. Chefs dish up different cuisines to suit each palette.
I however was looking for a traditional meal & boy did I have a feast!
From the Kerala boiled rice, the sambar, cabbage thoran, Allepey Fish curry & papadom to top it. This was the soul food I was looking forward to.

Their expansive lawns have weddings take place regularly. And I can imagine this as a perfect place for a destination wedding.

The Houseboats are perhaps the best i have seen. Completely air conditioned, very spacious & tasteful decor.

10/10 for this property & its excellent management
