Great location rubbish hotel

Friendly reception staff, arranged cheap transport for us, comfortable bed

Lovely location but run down, very tired and dirty hotel. The hotel had more crows than people and even more bird droppings. We only had a small lunch there but even this was inedible... The club sandwich was complete with cherry on top... Enough said. It's hard to imagine this hotel will still be around next year. Needs much care and attention to bring it up to scratch again. Do not go.

beautiful location on the lake, hotel looks a little tired needs some maintain ace to bring it up to standard, tiles falling off pool, painting and cleaning of mould on brickwork. Overall was a nice stay. Advertise as accessible for wheelchair but stairs to room and dining area and bath in most rooms.

I wanted to like this hotel, I really did. Here are the reasons I didnt: dirty, dingy feel to everything. We had a private pool but it was only 2/3 full, and there was bird poop all over the deck, including the 2 dining style chairs (really...why not pool chairs?) I had to ask 3 times over the course of 1.5 hours for extra blankets and towels... Only 2 towels provided for a family of four. I finally had to go to management and they had no good reason for the delay. The grounds are in need of help, lamps are green plastic, pool was filthy. We wanted to reserve the boat, note that the resoy only had one boat and no one told us that we should book well in advance, and going out on the boat was the primary reason for our trip. The spa asked if we wanted massages repeatedly, verging on harassment, food was not good, all of the table settings felt dirty and the breakfast buffet was the worst I've ever encountered. I wouldn't stay again. I don't recommend it to anyone.

good escape from city chaos, pleasant stay

calmness, good view of backwaters, locations of each cottages( i had got a lake view room)
7.7
pleasant, calm stay...literally doing nothing, ... . need no sightseeing...just enjoy the moments watching the calm backwaters...sometime a passing houseboat . pitch darkness at night and early morning foggy lake, one can spend time in watching them disappear... . good briefing assistance from the staff about the resort layout... . best transportation to the hotel is auto/ bus, please refer other reviews also, i did so and was very helpful . nearest bus-stop is chertalla, abt 11km from resort...you will get an auto directly for not more than 160inr...or hier a cab directly from airport( hardly 45kms....they will charge you anything around 2300inr)....prefer to arrange transportation yourself...will get a good bargain . it was my honeymoon trip, and i enjoyed stay, been a vegetarian had less options for food, but you get good varieties for non-veg,the restaurant is expensive( compared to the food they serve--quality and quantity)....restaurant staff and the manager needs to be updated with the language skills . rooms are to be provided with enough power plug-points, considering now the travelers are always along with theirs mobile phones, laptops, camera chargers( my room had only two plug points,to charge our phones, camera,and to use a hot kettle i had to remove the TV plug at the wardrobe) . toilet needs some maintenance works . missed out on houseboat/ shikara ride....
Rashid O. Business travelers South Africa, February 8, 2014
the worse ever resort i stayed @ in 10 years

none (mouse in the room )
3.7
it was the worse resort i ever stayed in , visiting Alleppey ever year . there was a mouse in the room , they refused to change the room in the middle of the night , i called Manager only the next day room was changed . they never looked for the mouse , gave a honeymoon couple the same room,then they had to change room in the middle of night because of same MOUSE , disturbing us for 2 nights . The basic toiletries are not supplied ,you must request for toilet paper, The newspaper i read on the 1st day on the Balcony /stoep was still laying there 4 days later when i checked out . house keeping is poor , showers are filthy,, they even charged me someone else bill , waiting for the reversal.i need a 2 day stay refund for the inconvenient caused of the mouse

Small Resort, Great location

Good design, comfortable,
7.7
World Backwater is located between Kumarkom and Allepey on the banks of the lake Vembenad, and away from other resorts. Hence location is great. The resort is small (appx 30 -40 rooms) but well designed spacious and peaceful. Great place to relax. Decent amenities eg swimming pool, hammocks, tree house, Ayurveda spa. The place also has some activities for kids like a play area, cycles. Good breakfast buffet and choice for meals. The resort also provides for a shikara boat ride into the lake, however its good if you pre-book We stayed in the executive suite which is spacious and good amenities. On the whole great location and well designed resort
