                Service from Staff, View, Ayrevedic Massage

                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.

                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.

                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.

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.

                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!

                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.

                Decent”

                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.
