Deshadan Backwater Resort

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

It is beautifully located on the backwaters and was a very peaceful stay. The staff were so friendly and helpful. They did so much effort for the new years eve event. They can be really proud of their effort. Not entirely worth the money but that will be the only negative of our stay.

We stayed here for 2 night and it was a very good experience. It is a small resort and we booked the lake facing rooms which were good and spacious (we were able to accommodate an extra bed in the room with ease). The swimming pool is decent for a resort this size. The view from the resort especially of the sunrise is excellent. The staff was very helpful and provided details on activities / attractions as well as accommodated our request for dinner items when they were running a buffet. As the resort is near to the lake with backwaters, there is a higher share of mosquitoes and insects especially in the restaurant area, however the repellent in the room seems to make a difference. Advisable to take ointments / repellents in good quantity. Overall it worked out to be good value for the money.

This is very good resort for from city we stayed in paillion rooms overlooking backwaters.rooms were very good with great view. In the morning we were able to enjoy th erising sun and take its pictures. overall resort is worth staying

I stayed at deshdan for 2nights it was really amazing.i booked this resort based on reviews and i found it is indeed true . Property is located very close to backwater and one with the and facilities are standard .so i would suggest this property to family without heavy expectation

First thing we noticed in the room was mold all over the ceilings. The room smelled of mold. Towels smelled of fungus. Shower doors were missing. Toilet seat was broken and dislocated. Sinks do not drain. They tried to give us bed sheets covered in stains, we repeatedly asked for clean sheets, eventually had to settle for moderately dirty. This hotel completely ruined our one night in Alleppey. The room safe is not even fixed to the wall, what is the point of having a safe when someone can walk off with it! The entire property is old and lacks maintenance, the staff seem to think this is OK for advertising an international destination. We only felt dirty and sick staying here, and wanted to leave as soon as possible. We had the manager come down and he tried to justify the conditions by saying it was the busy season and they were booked back to back. What kind of excuse is this! The only thing the manager offered was a complimentary dinner, they did not attempt to fix the problems or change the rooms. In final conclusion this property was listed as a 4-star hotel on the booking site we used, the manager attempted to justify the condition by saying the hotel was a 3-star hotel. The entire experience feels like we were sold a fraud.

If you are someone like me who doesn’t want to spend the time on houseboat then you should definitely opt for Deshadan. We reached the resort early evening and to our surprise we were upgraded into rooms facing the backwaters from the standard room allotted earlier. The resort is facing the backwaters. There are benches facing the lake where one can sit peacefully and relax. There is an option of pool too for a quick dive. The resort also offers great activities like cycling, tt, carom, etc. There are a few boat riders who can take you for a ride of 1 hour in the lake for a charge of thousand bucks. The food spread too was good. There are rabits moving freely in the premises which is an added attraction for kids. Overall a great place to stay.

Was here a couple of days back. They have a beautiful lake view, with the swimming pool right next to the lake giving u a horizontal view of a lake beside a swimming pool. Staffs are very courteous, I would like to recall a few names that made our visit pleasant- Santhosh, Jeez(Short for Jesus!), Thomas(Restaurant Manager) and Paul(@ the Restaurant) were always happy to help and very good. The room was excellent. Cleanliness, View, Space all spot on. Food was okay. Sambhar could do with lots of improvement, doesn't taste great. Overall very good stay, will recommend.

The resort is located in a village, the approach to the resort is bit tricky. We stayed here for 2 nights, booked a room facing the Vembanad lake. The location of resort is a plus, Sunrise is beautiful. The rooms & bathroom are neat and clean. The food is OK. The staff are very helpful , they are more than helpful to arrange the transportation. The resort have bicycles, which you can take and go around the village. The pool needs to be cleaned.

The resort is not very far from the main town of allepey and is beautifully located at the lake. The Rooms are clean and staff was very cooperating. I had the massage there and the lady was really nice. Little cleanliness in the massage room is needed because it looked very unhygienic. Breakfast also could be better. but the lake view and whole ambiance of the resort was just amazing.

We stayed here 4 nights. The 2 guys behind reception and restaurant manager were particularly helpful. The food was good although while we were there it was a buffet every night. However the buffet was good and changed each night. I think that if the resort owners spent a little bit of money on paint and sprucing up uniforms etc. It would be even better given the lovely location by the side of Vembanad lake.
