    Before I even review - 'Front Office Manager - Sindhu' - best at her job ! Thank you for your hospitality. This place is just beautiful ! Villa's are so very spacious, beautiful swimming pool, extremely courteous staff and the food was awesome (though a little of the higher side$) but absolutely no complaints what so ever !

    The main hindi channels not available on TV. Breakfast needs to be better and food is very costly. No choice of drinks.

    A secluded, beautifully landscaped hide-away, ideal for rejuvenating.”

    A lovely place, hidden deep in the village, with lovely landscape and quite secluded. the layout of the entire place was good and there was plenty of open areas around the chalets. The outdoor areas had plenty of seating for groups to gather and chit chat and have fun. The raised swimming pool was also lovely. The rooms were well-appointed, comfortable and spacious. the outdoor bathroom took my breath away !! Just remember to tell them not to put you in the adjacent building, which is well away from the fun areas and hardly any view !! They are called Garden view rooms....... avoid them !! They served tea and snacks at the lawns to all guests and a free boat ride around the lake for an hour. There is also a massage centre and gym, but I did not use those. Great experience overall.

    Highlight of our vacation in Kerala”

    We had booked this property through Agoda for just 2 days and got a good deal. But for some reason we had to extend our stay by a day which was done over the phone. Upon arrival there was a traditional welcome by the staff and to our surprise we were upgraded to a lake view villa instead of garden view. The rooms are very tastefully done with all the bells and whistles one can expect from a property of this category. The bathroom was huge with a mesh covering the shower area giving it a luxury feel and look. We had a lovely verandah with a hammock just over looking the lake. The view was just mesmerizing. They have a well laid out restaurant with an elaborate menu. Food in general was quite good, be it the breakfast buffet or ala-carte. They organize a complimentary one hour shikara ride in the evening for all members. We had a blast in renting out the scooter boat at the property. A big shout out for Ms. Priya & Ms. Sindhu who made our stay memorable. Highly recommended.

    More than Expected ”

    Decided to go for Backwater Ripple as it had a nice pool and good cleanliness reviews. We were so delighted we chose this place, it is outstanding. As expected it is clean, well maintained, great staff (throughout) & delicious fairly priced food. What wasn’t expected were all the extras that are provided. Starting with our room upgrade (forever thankful Sindhu) Each day complimentary tea and snacks are offered on the lawn, great chance to relax and chat to fellow travellers. Also offered is a complimentary boat trip (1hr) each evening on the lake, very relaxing. We made great use of the complimentary bicycles and travelled around the water way paths and local villages, we meet and chatted with many lovely locals.

    Excellent Service & Honesty even after you leave the Hotel”

    On reaching the airport we realised that our blue-tooth speaker was missing. After searching our car & luggage, we called up the hotel and asked them to contact lost & found department. Fortunately it was there. We requested them to courier at my residence & we would bear the courier charges. We received the speaker in v.good packing & the speaker in same excellent condition. It was not COD and the Hotel Management din't asked for a single paise for delivery charges. THIS IS SERVICE & HONESTY.

    A fantastic resort with the best swimming pool ever. ”

    Lovely helpful staff, beautiful rooms and good meals. One member of staff in the restaurant even started his shift early to make sure we had a pack- up breakfast as we were going on a day trip. . It was so nice to have live musicians playing in the evenings. They were all very talented, We loved the location, right on the lake but also with really nice walks along quiet streets right from the door. There was a small problem with electrics( which is typical of most hotels in India where we have stayed) but this was fixed quickly. They have all done a magnificent job after the severe flooding in Kerala and all tourists should be assured everything is running well and roads are fine.

    Our stay at the Backwater Ripples was memorable. The location is simply divine and it is a well kept property. The staff were very good, friendly and helpful. Special mention for Ms.Sindhu, who is the life and soul of the resort. The boat cruises and the Kerala cuisine are unforgettable. My daughters splurged on the sea food served there. The rooms are well furnished and equipped. On the whole, a very good vacation.

    Disappointed with this hotel mainly because of the staff. In the restaurant ordered my pineapple heritage waited 30 mins and it hadn't arrived only for them to say they didn't have this, I decided to pay and go only to find this item on the invoice! My room view was of the garden! In fact of work men building in the garden! The pool area was very good, overlooking the backwaters, table tennis, gym available. Wouldn't take much to make it a really good stay - more attention to detail!
