Pros: We had a wonderful stay. Lovely location near the beach, a beautiful peaceful garden, great food, and a really helpful host - what's not to like!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Lovely clean well fitted out room. Efficient quiet aircon. The owner is a lovely man who is justifiably proud of his achievement in opening the first homestay in Marari 7 years ago. It's probably the best! Delicious meal served in his delightful garden which he lights up with subtlety at night. We were able to have a beer with our dinner (but be prepared and bring your own to save him the bother of trying to source some). We had our laundry done for no additional cost - a gesture I really appreciated after 3 weeks travel. I would not hesitate to stay here again. Highly recommended.
Cons: Nothing wrong.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: This homestay is amazing. We've travelled extensively and I've never felt so sad leaving a homestays. From arrival to departure we had amazing experiences, from helping the fishmen pull in their boats to attending the early fish market with our host Ringo (that's what I named him). What a host nothing was too much trouble. Our beer we purchased was put in his fridge and he even gave us snacks!!! Martin cooked the most delicious breakfasts and evening meals!! What a guy.... Shark first night and Mackerel the second. Enough food to feed me for a week. Only 3 rooms, plenty of room, white fresh bed linen and towels, plenty of hot water!! It's a working fishing area, but walk further up the beach and you won't see large groups. The sea is amazing, strong currents and waves but once past that point just float. This place is FANTASTIC!!!!! Ringo is AMAZING as was both Martin and Mary. Thank you for an awesome stay.
Cons: That we didn't stay longer......

Pros: I totally fell in love with this gorgeous place and this wonderful family! The moment we arrived we were welcomed with big smiles and excellent food. This family and their kindness are what made our stay there very special. The room was also super clean, comfortable and lovely decorated. The air con and the fun were pure bliss. There was also hot water available in the shower, although it was so hot we did not really need it! Just outside the room door there is a lovely patio with hammocks, lovely plants and flowers, which is perfect to relax and read a book if you don't feel like spending the whole day at the beach. The beach is a 2 minute walk away and it is very beautiful. I was there right at the end of March and there were hardly any tourists. The beach is just lovely, quiet and full of beautiful coconut trees. The water is not super clean but I still loved to be there. It is possible to rent parasols and sun beds on the beach and the sunsets are magical. I could not recommend Marari Swapna Beach Villa more and I would most definitely go again!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Swapna and her husband have 2 clean rooms, located right next to the beach. The bathrooms are clean and nicely done up and there is an outside area with chairs and hammocks.

Pros: Very courteous staff and avoidance of all forms of plastic so as to maintain the green protocol were the highlights. I also like the greenery in the property and the proximity of beach.
Cons: The Ala Carte is very expensive and its not practical to stuff our stomachs with buffet three times a day. It would have been better to provide room service also for those who prefer private dining.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything...From the moment you came through the front gate, you felt like you were in paradise. Every member of staff you met were smiling and welcoming. The buildings all blended in between the trees so you hardly noticed them. The cottage bedrooms were spacious well set out, very comfortable beds and amazing outside bathrooms. The swimming pool was amazing, it was huge and they didn’t you chemicals to clean in so you could stay in there for hours with out discomfort. The restaurant was a beautiful building, and the food was exceptional. The waiting staff and chefs helped you choose from buffet selection, every you tried was delicious. There were activities you could get involved with and we tried everything we could, cooking demonstration, musical instruments workshop, Sari demo, butterfly garden tour(so many to see and learn about), massages and also afternoons was on the lawn. They made me feel very special on my birthday with bunch of flowers in our room and a birthday cake with the evening meal. would go back there tomorrow if I could, well worth a visit.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful tranquil hotel,, helpful friendly staff, excellent food, great facilities in a scenic setting, an oasis of calm, highly recommended
9.2 Excellent
Pros: This resort is by the lake and this makes it beautiful.We were the only guests and sitting by the lake in the evenings was a pleasure.The Staff here were very pleasant. Our room was upgraded and it was very spacious.The chef and his team are excellent! They made the most delicious beef fry and Kuttanadan duck curry.As we were the only guests, there was no buffett for breakfast and we could order what we liked the previous day.The laundry was not available but since we had many clothes,an employee of the hotel offered to launder the clothes for us in his/her home which was very kind.
Cons: The approach road to this place is not good.It cannot be easily found by first timers and the road is very narrow,unpaved and windy.You will be surprised/skeptical that there is this resort at the end of the road.Although the bathroom is large and roomy,the toilet is in its own separate area from the bathroom and this is most inconvenient.The shower area too is not sensibly constructed,so the water kept spraying outside the shower area.I was looking forward to get my kids into a Vallam arranged as a complimentary ride,unfortunately we couldn't do it due to the choppy waters.It felt like home.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was lovely. Mary was very nice and showed us around the property and offered us a complimentary canoe ride at sunset.
Cons: It is a long way from the town centre (about 30 mins)
9.6 Excellent
Pros: We were welcomed at this hotel with a fresh drink and cold towel after having spent a night on a houseboat. The staff were very accommodating and helped us with our early check in request at approximately 9:30am. The view from the middle of the hotel was stunning with a great view over Lake Vembanad and hosting two swimming pools. We made the most of the complementary yoga classes and canoe cruise on the lake, which were both some of the highlights from our stay. The hotel also had massage facilities which were some of the best we came across during our holiday. During the day it was nice to walk around the local area, and reception were able to offer us bikes and a simplified map of Muhamma that made exploring very easy. Thank you for such a lovely few days.
Cons: Although the food was great, the lunch and dinner was fairly expensive compared to some of the other meals that were experienced while in India. Additionally, and only a very minor point: the watery mango juice at breakfast was not the most pleasant, however, there were plenty of other (and delicious) options to go with.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Food excellent! Staff kind and attentive. Excellent complimentary yoga! I would recommend Purity to anyone with no hesitation. Lots to see and do. Very peaceful ...
Cons: Nothing!

Cons: The food in the restaurant is very good but also slightly too expensive (200 INR ++ for plain rice as a side dish). Maybe some umbrellas for the beach would be nice, as it is too hot to stay the whole day at the beach without any shade.

Cochin is 40 km from Vismaya - An Amritara Private Hideaway, while Alleppey is 30 km from the property. The nearest airport is Kochi International Airport, 50 km from the property.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I cannot recommend Vismaya highly enough. The house itself is stunning, along with the grounds and pool - incredibly tasteful and clean (something we didn't always find whilst travelling). Being on the peninsula of the island, it is surrounded by water, with fishing boats passing by and a beautiful sunrise in the morning. There are only two rooms, and we were the only guests whilst there, so had the entire place to ourselves. Book both rooms to ensure you have the same experience. Our room was modern and clean, with a beautiful outdoor bathroom. The lovely dressing gowns were a nice touch. Vinod, who hosted us, was an absolute pleasure, and provided 5* service at its best - discreet, informative and incredibly helpful. He is a one of a kind. Likewise, Babu the chef made some of the most extraordinary food I've had not just in Kerala, but anywhere. My partner sadly had to leave late on the night we arrived for business, but I couldn't have been in a more relaxing and beautiful place to carry on my journey. As an aside, I left a silver bracelet at the hotel after a (very lovely) massage and only realised when at my next destination in Alleppey. Babu drove to my hotel to drop it off to me without any expectation of payment or tip. Its service like this that makes somewhere so special, and I am incredibly grateful to both Babu and Vinod. I can't quite get over how good value this place is - I both want to tell everyone I know they must visit, and also keep it to myself! If you're planning you're trip to Kerala, this place is a must. One of the most special places I have stayed.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Exteremely satisfied with Food , stay , service etc... Food was exceptional ...a big thanks to Mr.Babu chef and Mr.Vinod manager for the great hospitality... worth the money
Cons: Nothing everything was too good
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The Keralite cottage is in a peninsula surrounded by Vembanad lake water on three sides. The minimalist architecture has attention to details like cross- wind flow from east to west and the modern amenities have been conceptualised very well along with heritage wooden architecture. Vinod and his team needs special mention to make the experience personalised to the highest order. Babu shelled out Keral delicacies and the presentation is exemplary.
Cons: The entrance of the room.... good for short people. A cut in plinth and an extension at bottom of the wooden door would do the trick
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Elegant homestay, staff go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable. Extremely beautiful location.

Pros: Everything. We’ll come back!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This deserves a 12/10, it is the most incredible wooden Keralan house on the lake which has been beautifully restored and modernised without losing any of the character. Vinod is an amazing host and took care of our every need, and was great company with a wealth of information about the area. Babu cooked the best food I've had in India, meal after meal was spectacular. It only has two rooms, so take both if you can for a truly memorable and relaxing escape in a gorgeous setting. We were very sad to leave!

Pros: The pool and service was amazing!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything - location: very remote and quiet directly at the lake with an amazing view - the cottages and main house: every cottage was unique and perfectly comfortable. All the furniture and facilities are from a perfect quality. - the art: there is old heritage art from India and across the world everywhere. - the garden and pool: only one word - perfect - the eco idea: they use a solar system for their power and provide water in glass bottles and washable serviettes. They grow their own veggies and in the morning you will get an duck egg omelette from their own ducks . - the service: outstanding! Anish the manager was somehow always there when we needed him. He organised a perfectly customized boat trip for us which was not expensive. The ladies are always smiling and somehow know when you need a fresh lime soda. - the atmosphere: is just like paradise. Butterflies in the garden, Kingfishers in the air and flowers everywhere (and of course the two puppies). You feel like living with your friends and not like in a hotel. - the food: amazing! Freshly served sea food keralan style. They always ask you what you want and prepare everything as you wish. Best coffee I had in India! This was definitely the best place I have ever stayed in! A Gem!
Cons: There was nothing at all
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Loved this place. Peaceful and quite romantic. The staff can’t do enough for you. This is the one place in India I would definitely return to. Finishing off three weeks in India and what a perfect way to end our holiday. Adore the beds, so comfy, the rooms are massive with separate rooms plus the beautiful outside bathroom. There is nothing I didn’t love about this hotel,
Cons: It was hard for our taxi to find, it is very tucked away but we got here.

Cons: We like everything
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Ameya is a beautiful property set in a small area of perfectly kept gardens that have a stunning outlook across the lake. It is a little hard to find but its remoteness is what adds to its tranquility. The rooms of which there are only three,2 villas and 1 suite in the main cottage, are very well appointed and decorated in a traditional style. The bed in the suite room was extremely comfortable, it was the best sleep we had throughout our two week tour of India. The food was fantastic, perfectly cooked and all tastes catered for. Above all, Anish, the manager and his team of staff were very attentive but not over bearing, perfect service. Ameya is just the ticket if you are looking for complete peace and relaxation!
Cons: Nothing
9.6 Excellent

Cons: Place is a bit rustic, walls are a bit damp and greasy. Compound wall has got algal patch.
5.4 Okay
Pros: Location! It’s legit 20 meters from the sea.
Cons: We were in room 108. There was a private home behind our room boundary. Entire night their pet dog kept crying, didn’t let us sleep. Finally at 6 am, the dog stopped. But then someone started washing clothes from 6 to 8 am, making loud bangs. It was a horrible experience. I would suggest people to book the rooms away from 108(left of the reception). Book the rooms to the right of the reception. Also, it wasn’t worth 6100 rupees including taxes. Not at all.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Great staff always willing to help with a smile, especially Bibin. The sea view from the rooms. The open air washrooms.

Cons: Kids pool wasn't functioning.
5.8 Okay
Pros: Location is very peaceful and quite - the only noise is the many animals living in the area around the resort. Quality of food was good
Cons: This is an alcohol free resort ( unless you bring your own - they will go and get some but be aware south India has some very strict licensing laws so really can only get you beer) Room says minibar which lulls you into a false sense of hope - get over it. We had 7 days booked here we left after 5 as there is literally nothing to do in resort and the menu was the same menu everyday. Please ensure you lock your valuables in the safe as we had a problem with minor sums of cash disappearing which we raised with the manager but not sure if anything will get done.
