I stayed there with two of my friends on our visit to Kerala - Alappuzha. They were really friendly and service was great. Food was great too. I would certainly revisit if i go to Alappuzha again.

People at ashtamudi are so welcoming and friendly. We traveled with parents who are old and a small kid. They were so accomodating to our needs. The rooms are made of bamboo so there are pros and cons that come along with it. There were mosquitoes and the fan was not working in our room. But inspite of such things,...

Spent one night in the air conditioned double room on the ground floor and found it more than adequate and very clean. The upstairs common area is really nice and full of character. Great service with very accomodating owners. Good food too. My husband and I rented a houseboat for one night through Ashtamudi and paid Rs4500. We thought it...

I travelled along with my little nephew and friends. We chose to stay here as the review in trip advisor was more than good (that i am not going to deny).
