Deshadan Backwater Resort situated in the banks of Vembanad Lake , Muhamma , Kerala is one of the most beautiful resorts ; not just the architecture but also the surreal beauty of its surrounding. It's definitely a paradise for a nature lover . Swimming pool with the view of the backwaters , lush greenery , picturesque view of the clouds , cats , rabbits and a lot of birds and a peaceful environment away from the city.

I had to attend a pharmacy workshop organised by KVM College of Pharmacy , Cherthala and while looking for the resorts nearby , I came across this resort which was more like love at first site.

1.How to get there ?

We travelled to Cherthala from Bangalore via train . It costs  INR 990 (A/C 3 tier)  and took us around 12 long hours to reach there.We started at 5 pm from bangalore and reached the next day around 5 in the morning .You could also book a ticket on a sleeper class and it would cost approx 350.From Cherthala railway station , we took an auto .( This resort is 12 kms from the railway station and took us 20 minutes to reach there)

Other ways to reach this  place :

Via Bus : Drops you directly to Cherthala .

Via Flight : Cochin International Airport is 72 kms from the resort which would take you around 2 hours to reach there.

Fun fact :Cochin International Airport received UN " Champions of the Earth" award as it is the world's first airport to be fully powered by solar energy.

2.How much does it cost?

The price varies in different sites . We booked from Make My Trip ( which was the cheapest then )and it was around 2500 per night. You can also book from their official website. There is a private cottage with a plunge pool attached that costs more than the normal rooms.If you are looking for a sumptuous romantic getaway , this has to be it.

Also, the check-in time is from 11 am and obviously , we were there way ahead of time ; We had to pay 1500 bucks extra for 2 rooms.

MOTOR BOAT : It wasn't provided by the hotel though .It was about to rain so they cancelled the boating service. A guy happened to pass by in a motor boat and charged us 1500 for four of us . It was expensive , considering the fact that it was only for 10 minutes which by the way felt like 2 .

SWIMMING POOL : So, this pool is 4 ft in depth and is well maintained . The only problem I faced was that it was impossible for me to open my eyes as it burned like anything. But the view was to die for.

I would suggest anyone travelling near Alleppey or in Cherthala to stay at this place for sure .
