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... More

We love Mr. RB and his Wife, their daughter is so adorable. They are amazing host. The room we stayed in was huge, creative bathroom, super clean and the view from our room breathtaking.

Interesting place and somewhere to truly get away from it all. You can use the free kayaks to explore the surrounding backwaters or hire a boatman for 3-4 hour trip in covered kayak (500 rupees). You can also hire the non motorised houseboats from here and either stay overnight on the boat or return to the cottage to sleep. The... More

Situated directly on the backwaters a great alternative to the house boat. The 'boat man' can take you out for sunset or a day trip on the boat. The food is fresh and home made. You have to pay for wifi but it's very good. Manu is super nice!! We hired bikes and it was stunning to go around the... More

I sometimes hesitate to gush about a hotel / guesthouse, thinking that it may start receiving too many guests and the quality may go down, but then one receives such a lovely service that one cannot help but rave about it. This is a lovely property - quiet, beautiful location. Its simple, no frills, but great views and fantastic food!... More

Clean, simple, great food, lovely staff. If you're looking for a place to relax and take things at ease, this is the place to be. Rooms have nice lake-view and a boat-trip through the backwaters is included. It is located in a small village. It's handy to have your own transport, bur the owners are more than willing to help...

I stayed based on a recommendation of a friend. I travelled on one of the farms' houseboat for a day and then stayed at the farm for another day. The rooms there were very good.

Where to start when there are so many good things to say? Firstly, I hands down recommend this place and will be back in the future. With that said, this place is not a luxury resort. It is very clean, but basic - the room had a comfortable bed, a cupboard and a desk and chairs. The bathroom brings you... More
