Best place with best price ”
We really enjoyed. it was a great time we spend, peace, nature, and good place. Staff is also really Nice and humble & caring. We did fishing, Boating, and other sports were there in side the resort only. Best Part is there Spa, for me as i was driving from Bangalore after getting there spa treatment got relaxed and able to enjoy my vacations. Thanks a lot for such nice resort!
Good location poor food”
Location is very good, staff is good, rooms are good but don't reply on the food. Food was disappointing.
Great Service, Room and Location”
I enjoyed my stay here. The staff were great, the room was very comfortable with a great view, and the massages were great. I found the room a bit pricey for what you get in India for the same $$. The hotel didn't seem to know how to process my credit card correctly on the way out and tried to double charge me. Also, a very troubling breach of server security happened to me while using the internet there. My e-mail was hacked pretty seriously. They had a very generic password, so clearly, security is not their main concern.
We went with my aged mother with the intention of resting and spending some quality time with each other.This hotel was an ideal place and we enjoyed the quiet and scenic surroundings.A small place and there were very few occupants but the staff were very attentive and food was also very very good.
Relaxing, Beautiful, Enjoyable”
It was an excellent stay and a great start to our Kerala holidays. The staff were very helpful, and always made sure they could help us arrange our transport to wherever we needed to go to. The room is well designed and everything is working in good order, do opt for the lake view room if you can because it is just stunning. Having said that, it is a nice small property, so it doesn't really matter which room you get, you get to sit in the verandah and enjoy that very beautiful lake.
Great Resort with wonderful staff. Food was suberb”
Wonderful stay here. We stayed for four nights and didn't want to go. The staff were very attentive without being over bearing. Always friendly.Pool was great and the area around it a wonderful relaxing spot to sunbathe.Great Location. We took the push bikes out one day and rode around the tiny lanes and had a lovely time.Would recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing time out of the main area of Alleppy.
Lovely resort - peaceful, relaxing”
Courteous staff, clean rooms, lovely location Would be nice to have more recreation facilities.
Hospitality of the staff is the highlight - excellent location and great value for money”
Nice and silent location. Nice privacy and very supporting staff makes it perfect location for a break from busy life
The worst bed in all my trip”
I don’t understand why in 4stars hotel it’s possible this bed... it’s the worst bed in all my trip in India. Beautiful place and views.
Like at home, small resort.”
Staff was very nice, but the resort is quite small. The price is a bit to high for the place. We cached a fish and restaurant staff said that they will prepare it for us, but it seems that they had it for dinner for them selves :) nothing was served for us and explained also :(.
It was very run down. We would not return. ”
Needs investment and maintenance urgently. Some aspects are in dire need of repair. Staff helpful but set the price for for a rikshaw to Alleppey at 400.....turned out very expensive compared to what we found much cheaper directly at 250 ourselves. Pleasant view on backwaters is the highlight. Very Poor breakfast. We would not return.
Had a wonderful stay at deshaden! The staff was excellent, the gentleman behind the counter (he wrote down his name for me, unfortunately i lost it) was amazing, very helpful and informative. the property was well maintained, rooms clean, dining area was on a covered patio, food excellent, Overall a perfect stay. (and im a cranky old man.)
staff are kind, location is very calm, totally excellent”
All the reception staff are very kind. He helped my trip so much. I can't stop feeling appreciation to them! If I come to Kerala next time, I would choose this hotel again. Also I'd like to recommend this hotel to my friends, my family and people who are planning to visit Kerala.
stunning location, lovely staff and beautiful rooms”
With a few minor improvement around the pool area, such as removal of broken furniture and more sunloungers and umbrellas this resort would be perfect. Rooms are fabulous clean comfy large and cool with contemporary designed bathrooms. The atmoshere is friendly and serene, the food good and the staff extremely polite helpful and approachable. There are three bicycles available for guests and it is worth using them to explore the nearby stalls/shops and country . View of the sunrise should not be missed
Excellent place to stay. In fact goood to stay here and cover allepey and Kumarakam. Small properly but excellent. Fishing and cycling across fishing villages by the backwater side was a joy. Limited options in food but clean and good quality. Highly recommend this place
Awesome resort with Scenic Beauty”
Had a great time with my wife in Deshadan. We stayed in a private pool villa. The ambiance was great and the view from the room was great towards the backwaters. The staffs were very helpful and food was also good.
Hopeless, Disappointing and Aweful experience with Deshadan”
Absolutely horrifying experience staying at Deshadan and dealing with the staff. Unfriendly and disrespectful staff. The only good thing about the resort is that it is absolutely lakeside. We went for 3 day stay and then also booked Deshadan Houseboat for an overnight stay. Both experiences were hopeless. We were promised a complimentary cake at the houseboat as it was our anniversary but the cake never came to us. Such a shameless and unapologetic bunch of goons are running the show at Deshadan "backoffice". My sincere advise to couples and families thinking of booking at Deshadan... book only if you are absolutely price conscious and you are sure that you would not have to deal with the staff at all. Else you are better off paying 3-4k per night extra at other resorts. We booked Superior Lake View Room. Room was fine. Nothing fancy about it though. Food is average. Again nothing we tried tasted good, let alone being delicious! At the end of our stay we wished we had booked at Taj Vivanta or Kumarakom Lake resort no matter how expensive those were... atleast the experience would have been definitely great!
Location is beautiful,staff is very good and polite.Rooms are clean.Pool titles are broken so be safe in the pool.Food is good and value for money.Natural pools and resort some area's are dirty.Sun rise view is incredible,so ignore everything and enjoy the view early morning
End of our trip”
We stayed at this hotel after a month of travelling for some r&r. It is a perfect location on the edge of the lake. Clean, excellent staff and food. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. There are some improvements to be made though. There is rubbish in the lake, immediately in front of the hotel which spoils the view when sat on the edge of the lake. Also 3 of the sun loungers were rotten and falling apart and there were only 4 in total.
Middle of nowhere, by the water. Beautiful sunrise. Neat pool. Friendly staff. Very good Indian dishes. Good breakfast buffet. Will take a while to reach the place or go to the nearest train station. There are jetties nearby with a lot of boat services for various rides.
