“Wow! What a fantastic experience we had for our 3 days at Praveens family house which is set on the waterfront of a smaller canal just off the main canal with a shop close by. Our driver spoke to Praveen to find the location of the bus stop (by the water) where were were met by Pathan, Praveens father in a boat to take us for the 10 minute journey to their house. We met Sakunthala, his mother, in the evenings as she works as a teacher. She dressed me in a sari which was fun. Pathan fed us 3 home cooked meals a day with snacks and provided bottled water. We are vegetarian and really enjoyed all the different dishes he prepared. We were even allowed to watch a meal being cooked. Pathan was a chef on a house boat for 13 years so he is certainly experienced! He used bottled water for preparation and filtered water for cooking. The rooms are air-conditioned and there are fans for the balcony to help cool. The balcony is large with seating and dining table and you can see the boats passing by. Pathan took us on a walk to the paddy fields. A boat was arranged for a 4 hour tour of the canals which included an island village walk where we were able to see a church service. One bedroom has duel aspect of paddy fields with evening sunset. We were looked after well and Praveen was keen to make sure we were happy with everything. We enjoyed our stay very much.”

“The experience is of 5 star so is the hospitality. However, the rice offered and side dishes was not of what I expected. Actually rice i did not liked it but it was something different then I ever had. so no complaints. Full day on a boat is worth the price. When you are in Alleppey you must experience oscar cruise once in your life time.”

The Resort and its area fortunated by green nature on one side and and all backwaters, boarded by coconut trees, a natural habitat of many local birds. The other side of the resort, an open sunny beach carpeted with clear sand.
“We had a lovely stay. We met our lovely host and amazing manager Joseph, they took a great care of us, fed us with amazing breakfast with a lot of fresh fruits, organised yoga with Jessy, which you must book too if you are staying at Coco. She is an excellent teacher, she challenged us in poses and explained carefully the benefits of each. Very good session with meditation and breathing techniques. The place has a big garden with coconuts which we enjoyed freshly cut in the morning. The sun sets just at the beach that they have a private entrance to. Highly recommended.”
