Reviewed 8 January 2017

Kondai lip resort offers a getaway from the city life. It is a very well maintained resort. The staff is very friendly, courteous and helpful. Rooms are spacious and clean. The resort arranged a boat ride (45 minutes) to the beach nearby. A very good experience.

Reviewed 6 January 2017

I checked in the month of Dec'16, this property is quite far away from main Alleppey (almost an hour away) and quite isolated. It has a very beautiful view, backwaters to be more specific. We stayed in their newly built deluxe rooms and it was nicely maintained. But be aware you might be having lizards and other insects as your guest any time.

Food wise you dont have much option in their restaurant, they will only serve buffet meal no a la carte. Quality and taste wise food was not that great. As been away from town you will not find much option near by too. We almost spent an hour hunting for another restaurant. Please improve on food taste and more options to eat.

Service is this resort is good. They have an optional boat ride to the near by beach, which looks amazing in start then it looses its fun. Its damn boring, its better you drive down to this beach. Crystal clear beach with less crowd.
Also they have an in-house Ayurveda spa therapy which is very good, if you have time go for it.

Good and beautiful heritage resort but away from main Allepey backwaters. Staff is excellent. They helped us get a good boat house deal for our day trip and helped arranging cab for Munnar at good rates. Very helpful front office staff.

Visited this place in the 2nd week of December. It's around 30 kms from Ernakulam North (Town) Railway station and around 50 kms from the Cochin airport. This place is surrounded by Canals on all sides, so you would have to take a boat to get to the resort (a short ride - couple of mins). We really liked the warm welcome upon arriving and the great service of the hotel staff. Throughout our stay, we always found them to be very helpful. A special shout-out to the resort managers George and Renji for giving this place the personal touch that's missing from most of the other big places.
The rooms are spacious and clean. We stayed in the new wing which I feel is nicer as the rooms are more bright. And these rooms have balconies which open onto the water. The bathrooms are well maintained (a Dryer was a nice touch much appreciated by the missus).
The food can be hit and miss depending on what you order. We stuck to authentic Kerala cuisine and some of them we liked and some of them not so much. Try the Kondai lip special Chicken which really goes well with beer.
The boat trip arranged by the resort was nice but the beach was a little underwhelming. The resort has their own paddle boats which you can ride any time and that was very good. They also have fishing rods which you can borrow.
Overall, if you are looking for a relaxing place away from the din and bustle of Alleppey or just want a stay-over before embarking on the great houseboat trip, this place is highly recommended.
