Bamboostix is an 8 room island resort the best views in Kerala (Southern India). Judge for yourself from these PHOTOS taken in Alleppey. It is also the most fun place as can be seen from our guest comments on Tripadvisor.
As you can see in this video, the door of each room is just 10 feet (3m) away from the water's edge. (ok the script, actor and acting quality need improvement!).
The upper rooms provide unique accommodation, as they have views on both sides - lake view on one side and paddy fields on the other. Some rooms have air conditioning.
This eco-resort is on an island in the backwaters of a lake in Alleppey/ Alappuza (4km from town center but a world away).
It is the only resort on this island which is inhabited by local fisher-folk and rice farmers. This typical Kerala island has no roads, no traffic, no pollution but lots of vegetation, birds and marine animals. Construction using locally abundant, eco-sensitive materials like bamboo, coconut, thatched leaves and reeds, 85%+ furniture is hand-crafted in bamboo by artisans who were trained on site and now exhibit to global audiences.
BAMBOOSTIX IS CLOSED INDEFINITELY! WE SADLY SAID GOODBYE!
Let us tantalise your taste buds with local Kerala food cooked with farm fresh vegetables and seafood right from the lake at your doorstep.
Manu (India-Australia) travels extensively and tasting local food is an important part of his holiday experience. At the resort, we have ensured that your taste buds are pampered as much as the rest of you!
Initially we wanted to focus on making the best of Kerala food. But after discussing with guests we decided to also add pastas, pizzas and lasagnes and a few North Indian dishes for travellers who would like a change.
Our menu is only suggestive and our chef uses his creativity and talent to customise dishes to your taste and requirement.
