On a two-week trip throughout South India, this had to be our favourite place we stayed, and even caused us to cancel our trip to Munnar to grab a few extra days here!
Alleppey itself is a very loud stressful town and people mainly go there for backwater trips, but this is ideal as you're actually staying IN the backwaters and can really get a sense of the relaxed way of life - as well as doing the obligatory backwater canoe cruise (which they will happily organise for you!)
The staff here are very gracious and helpful, even bringing dinner to our room when I was so horribly mosquito bitten I couldn't eat in their (really pretty) outside dining area
The cottages are gorgeous (we stayed in the most basic fan one which was still totally stunning) with dark mahogany features and simple white scheme, showering in the outside shower with sun beating down was my favourite part of the day
There's hammocks to lie in and read a book against the sound of crickets, and a little peer where you can watch the fish swim by
It really was a world away from a lot of the bustle of inner-city India
They can organise massage, backwater trips, cycling and transport into town (only 10 minutes on a tuk tuk costing about 80p!) and we just loved it on sight
If you go, try the onion pakora and the banana milkshakes - we got hooked on them and ended up drinking about 3 a day each!
Really highly recommended.
Thanks! Chloe and Andy
