“Holidays at it's best”
Reviewed 20 April 2012

We stayed for 4 days at Citrus Backwater Retreat with our 2 children (5 and 7 years old). Apart from all fantastic daytrips we made during this stay, we all enjoyed every day to come back to the Citrus.

The children enjoyed the playground and the pool. We enjoyed to relax either at the poolside, during a spa treatment or in our (clean) room.

All staff members have been very helpful and friendly.

Every evening there was a local indian dance performance during dinner time.

Thanks to all staff members and the GM who treated us as friends and not as customers.

I happened to stay in Citrus recently on vacation, have to admit it was one of the most peaceful and beautiful place to spend time and relax...To add on Tasty food from Chef Raheem, Spa to relax and some good place to roam around the resort...

It was a wonderful Experience and will certainly cherish with the same...

Needless to say, would surely like recommend this place for those who want to take a break and enjoy.

My Special thanks to Deepu(Restaurant) incharge for all the support provided during the stay.

I am only writing this because the hotel with whom we had arranged our houseboat experience switched us to the Citrus. So for one night we had a real treat staying on the luxury spa houseboat. This double decker came complete with massage and steam room, male and femal masseuses, wonderful chef,two master bedrooms with double baths on their private viewing decks.

A very, very good experience to cruise along the backwaters with such luxury. Our only regret - that we were not able to stay more nights.

Citrus takes hospitality to a whole new level. I went with my family this weekend and we had an amazing time there. Food, service, stay,comfort everything that you can think of in a laid back holiday is beyond AWESOME here. The staff was very very courteous and stretched beyond their regular duties that delighted us. These folks do not believe in good service concept but rather in absolute customer delight. Price was good, complimentary massage and sunset boat cruise was great. I highly recommend this place to people planning to visit Alleppey. I would also like extend my fondest regards to their staff for making our stay so memorable.

We were 3 couples and we were booked at this property by our travel agent.. You have to reach the resort from the road by a boat which takes about 15 minutes to reach the resort.. What A Place.!! Great and Superb.. The Best Resort, we enjoyed staying in Kerala.. We requested for a lake view rooms, which were alloted to us on the request our travel agent.. There are no words to describe the resort.. Simply Awesome.. The rooms wwre on the GF, facing the Lake.. you can see the boats cruising on the lake from your room.. The resort has lot of greenery and landscaped lawns.. The food is excellent with a huge dinning room.. The food is awesome.. Every evening we were trated by a Bharatnatyam dance by a good dancer.. We were just about 6 people in the dinning room but the management made no compromises as far as the cultural activity was concerned.. We enjoyed our stay thoroughly.. It has a great Swimming pool and a very modern Spa.. We went for a massage and it was done very professionally with modern equipment.. The resort also offered us a free cruise in their huge boat for about an hour.. The houseboat is fully equipped with AC , LCD and modern furniture.. This was the best stay of our 8 day holiday..

Room Tip: Take a room with a Lake view.. Excellent scenery..

Citrus Backwater Retreat truly was a retreat. It was our last stop in India and was an opportunity to rest before a grueling plane ride home. We were met graciously, the rooms were spotless, the food was excellent, the outdoor pool terrific. The classical dance during dinner was beautifully done. The manager was ever smiling and took us across the backwater to show us how rice was grown. The staff was friendly and helpful. The grounds were lovely: the ponds with the water lilies, the egrets in the rice fields. This was the best way to end a fantastic trip.
