It was a beautiful day with really good food and helpful staff. We truly enjoyed our stay and enjoyed the retreat away from a busy bustle to bask in nature. Thank you so much for a great time and I can't wait to visit when I come back.

Enjoyed Monsoon in Vembanadu lake with Family..
With my Wife & Kids we spent a day & night in Back Water Retreat house boat.
Mr. & Mrs. Kurian personally welcomed us in Houseboat during check in which help us to feel a family friendly atmosphere. Staffs - Mr. Renil & Vishnu was really caring and always looking for our comforts and especially kid's requests.
Food was also awesome..!
Recommended for Families & friends...

Backwater Retreat Theme House is really a paradise. Our clients had a Peaceful and calm atmosphere. It was like a refreshment. I will recommend this place for our clients and our families. The food was traditional and spicy, feels like a homely food. Food and place was excellent. Thanks a lot Backwater Retreat Team.

We had a great time here. Harry was very helpful and the beds were very comfortable. The room size is much larger than other hotels in the area and also very clean. The bathroom was large and the food was great – we ate the best paneer here.
