Situated amidst the mesmerizing backwaters of Kerala, on an emergent area of the beach in the quaint segment of Alleppey the Raheem Residency was built in 1868 and housed five generations of the Raheem family before it was transformed into a Hotel. This heritage property has been inspired by both Mughal and colonial structures and remarkably blends in Keralan influences too, all in all, giving a luxuriously pleasing and homey effect to the eye.
With just eight rooms, guests can be prepared to experience excellent services and ultimate privacy. The hotel’s Irish hostess Bibi leaves no stone unturned to impart exceptional personalized services and excellent food is served to guests. They also arrange interesting trips to Alleppey, but for those who wish for some peace and tranquility, the property offers an excellent Ayurvedic Spa with traditionally trained masseuses, a swimming pool and numerous hammocks and pleasurable chairs to unwind in the shade and soak in the sunshine. The stretch of beach, across the hotel, though unsuitable for swimming or sunbathing, is excellent for long walks and visitors can join the locals in games of cricket or volleyball in the early evenings, and watch the fabulous sunset as the game progresses.
