Not 5 stars, but still quite nice
We had a very pleasant stay here and the staff is really helpful. By Alleppey standards, it's got to be near the top, but certainly don't expect the 5-star style of hotels in the bigger Indian cities. There are signs of the place's age, frequent electricity failures and the occasional bird in the room (a funny experience in hindsight). On the other hand, you get to enjoy a very old mission house on the grounds of a bird sanctuary. Overall, would absolutely recommend, just be prepared for the handful of inconveniences that come with rural India.

Peaceful easy feeling
Vast expansive property with less than 30 rooms, by the Vembanad lake and encompasses a lagoon. Despite the obvious challenges to maintain, the hotel and rooms are in excellent condition. Service is sublime, and really enjoyed the live classical music performances by the lagoon / restaurant, as also the complementary boat ride in the lake.

Nice slice of paradise
We were greeted with cool damp towels and fresh coconuts to drink out of upon arrival, which really started things off on a nice note. The staff definitely went out of their way to make sure everyone is having a nice stay. We stayed in one of the more budget-friendly rooms in the main building. From looking at others' pictures, the villas look much nicer, but the room was still lovely- very spacious and clean with a nice view of the lagoon and the outdoor restaurant. The property is beautiful - we spent a fair amount of time just walking around looking at the different plants. There are a few different boat tours you can do of the area (we just did the complimentary evening one) and some activities on the property such as cooking demos and a teahouse experience. Very good place to go to relax - I'd say 2-3 days is sufficient to do all of the activities/ tours in the area. Advice to management: perhaps include more daytime activities in the middle of the afternoon for guests with prolonged stays to help pass the time. The food was also not bad at all, albeit pretty overpriced. A tip if you're coming from the airport: we got a much lower price for a car to the hotel using the pre-paid cabs desk at the airport than what is charged if you arrange airport pick-up through the hotel.

Next door and part of Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary
The highlight of the visit was all of birds which would come and go from the property, morning and night. Cormorants, herons, egrets, and a variety of kingfisher. The hotel is adjacent to the Bird Sanctuary. The overall condition of the hotel and the grounds is fair, but the bungalows need to updated and upgraded, for the price of the room, which did not include breakfast. We stayed 2 nights at this hotel, and 5 nights at a much better hotel in the general vicinity. Look around the internet before booking.
