Actually, we were planning to head for another resort nearby, when a friend recommended this new property. After a smooth drive from Kochi to Aleppey city, and another 4 kilometres down, we reached St. Thomas Church besides a river and boat jetty. There was a fabulous house boat waiting to take just the 6 of us to the hotel. A 10-minute cruise later we reached the hotel, where Sujith, the friendly guest relations executive, was waiting to greet us by the dock.
This is not a resort; as their name suggests, it's more of a retreat. A retreat from the everyday hussle and bussle.... Excellent buffet spread. Clean and nice rooms that look out into the river. Very, very friendly and accomodative staff. Not to to mention Mr. Santhosh, the General Manager, a gem of person (to underline the fact, he even has a tiny gem on his left ear). Great guy. And a great resort!
