Purity at Lake Vembanad
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 January 2018

From the moment we arrived at Kochi airport and were collected by a driver from Purity, Suneesh, we knew we had made a great choice. He was so welcoming and spoke so positively about Purity and Malabar Escapes (Purity is just one of the properties run by Malabar Escapes, a local company with an ethical ethos).

On arrival, we were greeted warmly by Mary, who introduced us to other members of the Purity team as she showed us around the property and our rooms. We booked a Vembanad Garden Suite. Beautiful. This was on the first floor with direct views of the lake. There was a large open plan sitting area with floor to ceiling windows to 2 sides over looking a large private first floor terrace, a super comfy kingsize bed and a fabulous bathroom with bath, separate walk in shower and separate WC. Again, the attention to detail in the materials used in the room, such as the tiled floor, use of coloured polished (possibly) concrete in the bathroom, the furnishings and the art works was extraordinary.

Before we left, we also had a quick look at most of the other rooms available. All followed a similar design ethos and were equally beautiful, although some of the standard rooms in the old building did not enjoy the same level of light or views as that gained from rooms overlooking the lake. They also lacked a private outside sitting area.

The service we received during our 3 nights at Purity was exemplary. All the meals were delicious and were presented with flare and an attention to detail that makes you feel special. There was a wide variety of dishes available, which used local sourced ingredients wherever possible. Thanks to Joice, and others for your helpful advice on different dishes and excellent service.

Purity itself is simply stunning and is very special place in which to stay. This has been achieved because of a high level of attention to detail in it's design and the way in which the owners have created such a peaceful ambience both in the communal areas and in guest rooms. You sense that a great deal of thought has gone into choosing even the smallest of items, such as a soap dish, right through to the numerous art works scattered around the property and in the guest rooms. Sure, the truly magical setting helps, being right on Lake Vembanad, but a quick look at many of the other hotels along the shoreline really makes you appreciate what Purity has achieved and offers.

Purity is simply the best complement to a beautiful setting - stay there!

Room Tip: Go for 1st floor room in the 'new block' overlooking the lake - these come with private terr...

We stayed in this hotel in between two trips with a houseboat but we did not want to leave. This hotel is perfect, everthing, the room, the view at the backwater, the swimmingpool, the food and especially the people who made us so welcome and friendly we even got a upgrade of the room.
Especially the driver was so nice, he speaks english perfect we are still in touch and we like to come back to this hotel. Waiting for an offer. Thank you so much for everthing it made our stay perfect. (they also have an houseboat there).

Though I was staying in a different property I went to this place to get a view of the Vembanad, see their architecture which looked fascinating in the pictures and take lunch.The locals did not quite know where the place was suggesting it is really a hidden gem in Muhamma.There is an open courtyard in true Kerala style but what sets it apart is the water on the quadrangle and the lovely circular structures that come out of the water, making it visually spectacular. Artworks are strewn everywhere-paintings, curios making the place visually spectacular.But what sets the place apart is the service of the people here. I had talked to a lady called Mary in the front office and told her my flight is running a trifle late and I will reach Muhamma late.She said she will keep the kitchen informed and thanks to her and Joyce in the kitchen, we got served lunch at 4.30. Its not the architecture and interiors that makes a good property but the people and Purity have some people who are amongst the best in the business. The clientele is mostly European elderly people .

Visiting Purity for 4 relaxing days after a hectic spell at work was the perfect way to unwind and soak in the culture and natural beauty of Kerala. From the moment we arrived, the staff were more than obliging and personable. Our room, idyllically situated right on the banks of Lake Vembanad was beautifully appointed with subtle artistic touches. Throughout the resort, the eclectic blend of old and new artworks and artefacts worked magically to create a special space and ambience. The food was very good, especially the fish and the typical South Indian rice pancakes or aapams, which we ate at every meal! We spent our time taking leisurely boat rides along the backwaters; lazing by the pool; taking divine Ayurvedic oil massages, visiting the nearby temple and also taking a day-trip to Kochi where we had a sumptuous meal at the gorgeous Malabar House. On our return, we chanced upon a temple festival with resplendently decked elephants swaying to the rhythmic beat of drums and cymbals, all on the grounds of a 1400 year old temple. Staying at Purity was the perfect get away. We have already recommended the resort to friends and can't wait to return again.

Room Tip: A room with a view, situated on the lakefront is ideal.

We stayed here at the end of our hectic three week, India tour for a wind down, before returning home. The staff are pleasant and friendly, the hotel thoughtfully laid out and very clean. We had a lovely large room with a large bathroom. The decor is simple and tasteful, with lots of interesting antiques placed around the hotel. The food was lovely also. We spent a couple of days chilling by the lake, watching the passing traffic on it. I would recommend this hotel based on our experience.
