It was Christmas and we wanted to head to the Gods own Country. Shopped around for quite a while to land a deal but, since it was that season of the year, the prices quoted were exorbitant.
We were this close to dropping the plan for the Christmas holidays but stumbled on to the listing of Riverine Resorts. Am I glad we did, this is a calm serene resort abutting the backwaters and we were in for a peaceful time.
The resort is away from the hustle and bustle of Alleppey and since it is tucked away even from the roads (the nearest roadway is a 15 minute boat ride away), you are in for a special treat. We were relaxed, fishing by the backwaters, taking boat rides, basking in the sun, witnessing the nature at its best form. Kerala is truly a place to be and Riverine was a perfect match to enjoy the splendour of Kerala.
The food that was served was authentic and boy was it yum? We had a very good experience and is sure etched into our memories to cherish for years to come.
A special mention to Mr. Justin, he is the torchbearer of this place. He is a wonderful person, looking for opportunities to go the distance to serve us.
The resort if about 20 kms away from Alleppey by the place called Kanjipadam. You can take a bus from Alleppey towards Trivandrum and get down at TD medical college bus stop. Take a rikshaw (tuk-tuk) from there for Rs. 100 and a boat will be waiting to pick you up from Kanjipadam.
