We stayed for 2 nights and 3 days. My elder son and family form UK joined us as they were on Holidays.

The very courteous and friendly staff at the reception welcomed us with a welcoming drink. Then on life had been enjoyable and comfortable. check in process was flawless and smooth.

We stayed in a 2 storied villa and poolside villa. Rooms were spacious and clean. Internet, air-condition and well ventilated rooms made us more comfortable.

Children enjoyed the swimming pool, fishing with fishing rode, river cruse during the evenings. 4-5 pm coffee, tea snacks sessions were great to meet and chat with other guests from different countries.

Restaurant provided good choice of food. Breakfast was well spread.

The resort officials arranged a 4 hour house boat trip with lunch on board, which was a great experience.

Front office manager Sindhu and other members of the staff took special care of us and made sure that every moment we spend there was safe and comfortable.

The cool blue back waters and sky and the green plants and loan give every one a really rejuvenating experience.

We recommend this resort to everybody.

Really very happy with Backwater Ripples resort. Beautiful place, amazing staff and perfect for a peaceful getaway from your busy days.
We stayed in the resort for almost 4 days. The service was impeccable. Front office Manager - Sindhu welcomed us with a beautiful bouquet and took very good care of us throughout the stay.
The staff in the restaurant especially Anju was very warm and helped us with good food options.
The fish curry and neymeen fry was yummy..
Must call out Sethu from Vedsparsh. She did a full body massage and it was very relaxing and rejuvinating. My mother really enjoyed it and went for a second one the next day..
Overall very good experienxce and will definitely go back. Highly recommend this place for families. A must visit if you are planning to go ro Kumarakom!!!

Thank you Sindhu and all the staff of Backwater Ripples for making our stay a memorable one!

Thanks
