Editor's Review

The Kondai Lip Backwater Resort is surrounded by backwaters on all sides. You have to take a boat ride to enter the resort which is quite a nice experience. The resort has quaint cottages providing an amazing view of the backwaters. But the rooms are not very bright and since they have a traditional look, you cannot expect them to be modern. The resort is full of greenery and has a quiet atmosphere. The complimentary boat ride is the major highlight. 


  • Stunning views from the rooms.
  • Good boat rides and backwater cruises.
  • A peaceful and quiet atmosphere.
  • Cottages have a traditional look with good sit-outs.


  • The rooms are a little damp, not modern.
  • It’s quite an isolated property.
  • Mosquitoes may be a problem sometimes.
  • You cannot expect top-class amenities.

Detailed Info

Kondai Lip Backwater Heritage Resort has been branded as one of the best backwater resorts in Alleppey, a town famous for its pristine backwaters and scenic villages. Guests are welcomed by the resort's boatman who uses a country boat to take them across a canal lined with palm trees on the shore. Once they get off the boat, they take the stone lined pathways that lead to the resort. The canal forms a huge serene pond creating a picturesque view throughout the property.

The resort has rustic brick-coloured cottages made of laterite and wood having wooden gables, tiled roofs and nice verandas. They are surrounded by coconut and palm trees amidst lush green grass. Each cottage is more than a hundred years old and has a traditional look since it is designed with authentic Kerala architecture. The cottages are placed around a dining area that opens out to a charming landscape. The Ayurvedic centre at the resort offers several treatments and massages along with yoga and meditation.
