Lured to head to Kerala?! Rest assured, you are bound to have one of the most cherishing experiences of your life! Whether it is the ruggedness of the Western Ghats and their fragrant tea plantations, Kochi’s Chinese fishing nets or the unexpected Jew Town in this very Indian city, enchanting beaches of the Arabian Sea or the ever so beguiling backwaters, Kerala is a blend of vivid experiences. Not surprisingly, global tourists have found their favorite Indian destination in this state.

The backwaters are especially noteworthy given their bait that has international travelers imploring them! If I could, I would say Alleppey or Alappuzha is perhaps the reason why the state earns its reputation as something so beautiful and pure as "God’s own country". Quaint houseboat cruises, coconut trees, the Laccadive Sea, pleasingly welcoming locals, some serious lip-smacking food and a dose of quirky activities like surfing, yoga, and boat races among more, puts Alleppey on the 'must visit places in Kerala' list. And rejuvenation in Kerala can be another story altogether, what with its blissful Ayurvedic massages, tranquil lagoons, and temples, that promise the ultimate solitude. 
If you think all this comes at a cost that is not very reasonable. Hold on friend, we bring to you 15 best places to stay in Alleppey that are an absolute bargain! And if you thought houseboats were the way to go, you need to read this now for some major enlightenment on beach houses, heritage homes and of course, yoga retreats!
