Punnamada is truly tranquil respite that I would highly recommend for family, friends of solo travellers. The rustic charm of the resort is immediately welcoming and relaxing. We arrived two days before Christmas 2016 and stayed three nights, checking out on Christmas Day to take a three night backwater tour. We were kindly upgraded from the most basic room to...

I can't speak highly enough of this place. It's location on the water is perfect, the rooms are well detailed and comfortable and the food is the best we had in India. It is a very relaxing environment and includes lots of things like yoga sessions and sunset boat rides all for free.

We spent two nights on the boat which was the best decision we made during our tour of India. We went much further into the outbacks of Kerala waters and away from all the other boats. We experienced narrower canals and rural India by water. The staff were attentive, friendly and very kind to us. Food was fantastic best we...

The rooms are spotlessly clean and setup very elegantly in sync with the resort's overall vintage feel. Clean sheets, apt toiletries, clean bathroom. View from our Lake View Villa was just amazing - 180 degree view of the Vembanad Lake with houseboats and all other types of boats floating calmly across the window, and a hundreds of kinds if birds...

The resort was really wonderful. We stayed at the lake view and the duplex villa, both were amazing and perfectly clean, perfect relaxation atmosphere. The staff was humble and courteous. Yoga session was also very good and relaxing, the Ayurvedic massage at their spa was rejuvenating with Mantra playing in the background. We attended the New Year's eve celebration which...

This nice and cosy is right at the banks of the big local lake. We lived in a very cosy lake view based room. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Some facilities like pool r good though the public washrooms need urgent renovation. Its a pitty its neglected. Food is ok though dont expect high cuisine.

Spent three days here, one on a houseboat and two days in the resort. The houseboat experience was very quiet and relaxing with an attentive staff. The chef even asked us about any special preferences for food. The rooms were comfortable and air conditioned. Our experience in the resort was very pleasant. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We also...

We arrived late for the scheduled tour of the lake and lunch. The staff ensured that we could spend extra time on the water so we could appreciate the views of the lake and the sunset. They provided a later lunch which was fabulous and then a wonderful coffee with onion bhajis. In the evening we watched a traditional dance...

The reviews on this portal are spot on. Punnamada is located on the banks of the lake and offers a terrific view of the lake and backwaters. Rooms are very comfortable. However the restaurant is mediocre for the amount of money they charge. While it is very convenient to eat on the property and not waste time trying to get...
