This small, red-tiled roofed resort with its brahmin locks posted on each village's doors is located on the edge of lake Vembanad is, quite simply, a true delight for the senses. It is only made even more memorable by the people looking after its guests, all of whom were not just cordial but genuinely vested in making us happy. Complimentary yoga in the mornings and evenings, tea on the lawn in the afternoon and a kitchen that did not disappoint morning, noon, or evening. We were simply happy here.

This was the near-perfect end to my trip in India. The facilities at the hotel are amazing, location is spectacular and the staff are all friendly, professional and happy to help in every way. Special thanks should go to the restaurant staff who were all amazing, and the food brilliant! Mr Pradeep Kumar, who runs the excellent yoga classes daily (I practice yoga 4 times a week back in yoga and Mr Pradeep's classes were an excellent, traditional teaching style) and Sunish in the Ayurvedic spa, which has amazing treatments. Thoroughly recommended, and if you do go - make sure you borrow the resort's Kayak and bikes and explore!
This was my last leg of the Kerala trip and what a leg it was, really one of the most beautiful properties I have been to, just next to the lake it wears a distinct character, gives u the real feel of the backwaters and Kerala living, love the decor they have done to the room, excellent staff and unique staying experience, must recommend for anyone planning to stay in Allepey. Loved their washroom concept, pretty unique and eco friendly.Few points I would like them to work upon1. Breakfast spread can do better.2. Please put complimentary Mineral water in the room, I know you are trying to promote green, but there are a lot of other ways to do that.3. Swimming pool cleaning can be done better, yours is a difficult property to manage, considering it is just next to the lake, but pool cleanliness could still be taken care of.Overall a very enjoyable and enriching experience and would definitely recommend people to get this unique flavor when you plan a trip to Gods own country!

This is very nice place to stay for one to two nights. The location is fantastic, just in front of lake. One can spent hours in watching houseboats moving here and there. Food is good, but never try pizza, just ignore.Room service is OK. Don't take room near 704...we didn't get hot water during our stay. Not much activities here except eve boat ride and traditional dance in night. Morning yoga was a huge plus point and cycles are available.Overall, stay was comfortable and enjoyable.

Occupying a beautiful setting by the lake, a calm and tranquil resort offering excellent accommodation, food and service. The staff where superb, nothing was too much trouble, food excellent. Our room was beautiful with an open bathroom. There was a 15 minute energy saving period in the evening, giving us the opportunity to walk through the beautiful gardens watching the fireflies, magical!

I would definitely stay here again! The resort is really nice and the staff is super friendly. We got upgraded to a bedroom by the pool that was very clean and looked like new. They have different activities going on like a boat ride, tea time, yoga, etc. The restaurant is good although a bit overpriced but it's really nice and taken care of so I think it's worth it. I highly recommended.
It was our first visit to Alleppey the Venice of the East in January. We got a warm welcome on reaching the resort with fresh jasmine garlands. The resort is a heaven for all especially newlywed couples. We roamed the resort and took lots of snaps. Everywhere we saw greenery and the lawn in front of the restaurant was awesome. They had placed benches to sit and enjoy the tranquil Vembanad Lake which is the boundary of the lawn.
The hotel is a lovely property. Took us quite a while to get there. It is situated right on the backwaters and there are boats that will take you about. They also have cycles which you can borrow and explore the surrounding area. Staff was very pleasant and helpful.
We had a one night stay in the lake view villa. The time we had there was very peaceful and relaxing and the food was good but expensive for Indian standards. We had a massage in the Ayurveda center which was excellent and hope to return to do a full 7 day package. The yoga lesson was also excellent.

Location wise this is 10 kilometers from Alleppey town and the main road. Narrow roads leading to the resort. The resort is on the banks of the Vembanad lake. Excellent view from the resort. Was given a welcome drink on arrival and then a wet towel to refresh. Was then upgraded to the heritage villa. The room is done in a rustic way to give that traditional feeling. Food was good, though the cost was a touch on the higher side. Was there for 2 days and felt that was quite sufficient. Wi-Fi though available is ok, don't expect it to be fast.

We very much enjoyed our first encounter with yoga. The Ayurvedic spa is excellent and you can have, if you wish, a free consultation with the doctor. We had a Sirodhara massage which was a good as any I have had in India.

Yoga in both morning and evening is a great addition to the package on offer at Punnamada Resort. The teacher is great and we made progress thanks to his clear, pose by pose instructions.

I was here during off season. As a result, there were only 10 guests staying here. But nevertheless all dishes were available and yoga classes were hosted. Due to the small number of guests, I could even enjoy one-to-one yoga lessons! I would recommend this resort and will definitely come back!
