NOT STAYED............We stayed here for a night with utter disappointment, as its located 19Kms away from the main Kumarakom City. The approach to the hotel was bad. Our room was not up to the mark also no good views. There is no BackWater, its just a dirty lake. The staff was not friendly. Even the food was not good.

I am really happy with BackWater Retreat's owner Kurian's responsible behaviour. He has some issues at his hotel,so he booked a cottage in other Hotel near by which is almost double the cost of his room.And he made sure that im comfortable at new hotel.He even guided for local sight seeing. Thanks Kurian

I visited Kumarakom and stayed at BackWater Retreat for a night with my wife ....a really fantastic hotel. It has basic rooms but a lovely atmosphere, beautiful scene of the Kumarakom lake. Being vegetarians we ate vellappams with some vegetable stew. A must visit to all travelers looking for a place one with nature.ust visit to all travelers looking for a place one with nature.

When there are more than three guests the hotel is not able to do better service as it is used to do with less guests.

Best Backwater Boating Best Backwater Boating

Backwater Retreat House Boat Service is excellent in terms of trip. From Aman College of Science and Technology we had a wonderful trip from Thannermukkam to Kumarakam. IT was a four hour trip including food. we all enjoyed the trip. Service was excellent. Tasty and neat food. spacious rooms and quality service is commendable.

Perfect family holiday, Fun and relaxing.. Perfect family holiday, Fun and relaxing..

We booked Backwater Retreat resort for 1 night stay and one night in Backwater Retreat House Boat... The food that they served too is amazing. They took really great care of their customers. Kerala is known for its sea-food So we were not sure if we would get decent vegetarian dishes here. . It is by far the tastiest food I have eaten in Kerala and one of the best vegetarian meals of my life. Hospitality at its best! Right from entry point, taking care of all our needs on the resort and house boat. Staff were very patient and understanding. They respected our privacy and gave us ample space. Journey through the Kerala backwaters is unforgettable in itself but the hospitality shown by the owner Mr.Kurian and his team made it even more memorable. As for the houseboat, it is clean, tidy and spacious the bedrooms and living area are. I would suggest people to get some form of entertainment for the evenings as it might get a little boring once the boat stops at 5:30-6 pm. They have fishing rod for fishing, but we did not like to catch fish. It was 100% worth for the money we paid. We were looking for a budget resort and house boat and we found Backwater Retreat is good choice. I would highly recommend Backwater Retreat resort and Backwater Retreat Houseboats to everyone looking for a great backwaters experience in Aleppey& Kumarakom. Also note that Backwater Retreat is not a star property, its a heritage type property having ac, wifi cold and hot water facility.

Better than Alleppey Better than Alleppey

Kumarakom boat house is better than alleppey. in terms of view points, the journey space and everything. The only low point is it is not that much easily accessible like alleppey and car or van is definitely needed to Reach there. Good and thrilling experience everywhere in kumarakom

A tranquil experience A tranquil experience

This houseboat trip was part of a holiday with my adult sons in Kerala , I promised them an amazing experience and it did not disappoint. My second trip, we loved it, it was a totally relaxing and quality time with my family that is difficult to achieve in other ways. We were collected from our hotel and taken to our next. The staff were attentive and cooked delicious local food that was fresh and colourful. The lake is a most serene place with an abundance of birds and Lake side flora and fauna to watch...slightly mesmerising. This was a sea of tranquility in the middle if a busy holiday. Thanks Kurian look forward to next time.

Good for eco friendly silent stay Good for eco friendly silent stay

by prashanth H on October 17, 2016

The house is 8kms from Kottyam Bus stand / Railway station. But around 18 kms to Kumarakom. silence, village location with water channel in the backyard. Owner Kurien and the cook mahesh were genuine in their communication and liked their friendly behaviour. I recommend this stay for Town way stay.Owner and caretaker arranged the Autorickshaw for travel to city and Kumarakom . It was hassel free and reasonable price and good behaved driver.
