Gowri Residence

Guesthouse in Alappuzha (Alleppey)

This rambling complex about 800m north of the North Canal has an array of rooms and cottages in a large garden: traditional wood-panelled rooms in the main house, and several types of bungalows made from stone, wood, bamboo or thatch – the best have cathedral ceilings, air-con and flat-screen TVs. Overall the place is looking a little faded.
