Punnamda Backwater Resort is located right on the banks of Lake Vembanad, offering you serene views. Spread across 10.5 acres of lush green, this sprawling property takes on the traditional architectural style and ambience of Kerala. Rest your head in one of the well-appointed villas and cottage, which are basic yet comfortable. Each one boasts a private semi-open air bathroom for a uniquely tropical experience. Pamper yourself at the Ayurveda spa, or take a refreshing dip in the outdoor swimming pool. By night, enjoy fine Indian cuisine and a drink at the hotel’s friendly restaurant.
Three nights was WAY to many - one would have been sufficient! We would highly recommend the ivory museum in Alleppey - across from the Coir factory - outstanding collection So!

We so much enjoyed the 3 relaxing days/nights, followed by another night on the Resort's own Houseboat. We were delighted with the quality of the food, the service, the great swimming pool, the yoga sessions and a full body Ayurveda massage as a special treat. A great place to switch off after and before days of intensive travelling. Thanks also Enchanting Travels for the romantic candle-light dinner surprise!...Read More

An amazing 2 weeks. The resort is beautifully located and attracts both Indian and international visitors, which we found very refreshing. We took the 14 day Ayurvedic health rejuvenation package and could not have been more personally cared for, from massage and health treatments to personalized diet. Yoga is available An amazing 2 weeks. The resort is beautifully located and attracts both Indian and international visitors, which we found very refreshing. We took the 14 day Ayurvedic health rejuvenation package and could not have been more personally cared for, from massage and health treatments to personalized diet. Yoga is available to all hotel guests and is led by the quietly professional Pradeep Kumar. My wife was the only one attending at times and had the good fortune to receive a series of individual classes, which Pradeep tailored to her ability and experience. Beautiful and relaxing though this resort is, the infrastructure is a little tired in places and is gradually being upgraded. Its greatest asset is the staff, who were all attentive, professional and friendly, going out of their way to make our stay the best it could be. We had the sense that every staff member is happy in their work and proud to be part of the resort....Read More
