Located along the river, my room is spacious and quiet. I go by boat to the village not far and discovers the authenticity of Kerala. Situated not far from the centers of interest of Kerala, I find the evening after my excursions, beauty and calm, the unbelievable Aebi Ayurvedic massages and its family which is at the care for my...

We have spent 14 days in "Cherivally Backwater Farm House" resort, 23 kms South from Cochin , while we followed an ayurdeva treatment in Matt India. The place is idyllic, peaceful and absolutely relaxing. It is located in the very heart of the backwaters and it enjoys incredible views over the dammed waters that mirror thousands of palm tree and...

We booked via AirBnB but I don't think my review is visible so I've pasted it here: As others have said, Manu is a lovely, warm and hospitable host. It seems more common these days to not even meet your Airbnb host so to have Manu as our 'on site' host was a welcomed change. Our favourite bits: - As...

We had high expectations for the Back Water Farm House based on the reviews and photos on TA. Yes, the rooms and facilities are basic, as other reviewers have said; that is not why we are giving it 2 stars. The problem is the lack of information at the isolated hotel and feeling of unease that we had while staying....

We found heaven at this peaceful, idyllic location nestled in simple, spacious and comfortable, waterside accommodation with caring, friendly, low-key management. This place is for folks who are interested in unpretentious but glorious natural surroundings and who can take care of their own entertainment doing simple things with nature. If you love boats, fish, birds, beach and ayurvedic treatments this...

For us, coming from a hectic crazy place like Mumbai - Mannu's homestay was an ideal choice to get to for some much needed peace and tranquility. There is no point going to Alleppy if your staying here as your literally living on the backwaters especially this corner room that has a 180 degree view of the waters , beautiful...

It was a family holiday and we enjoyed the experience. Pity, we had to use the air conditioner because it was very hot. Otherwise, things were simple, relaxing. The boat ride on the backwaters in the morning was slow and unhurried. Sunsets were breathtaking on the backwaters visible from the room itself. Food was so-so but the general hospitality made...

What a great place to relax! The small cottages are situated directly at the waterfront and thereby offer a stunning view over the backwaters. The rooms are spacious, the bathroom has this charming rough-outdoorsy feel and the veranda is the perfect place to do yoga, read a book or simply to let your spirits flow. The food is an excellent...
