Introduction to the Raheem Residency
Lonely Planet complimented Raheem Residency saying that it was the only top end place in Alleppey worth considering. Raheem Residency rightfully deserves this accolade. Formerly the private residence of Mr. Raheem, it has been converted to a heritage resort fairly recently. Within eighteen months of its conversion, Resort Raheem Residency was recognized by the Government of India as a genuine heritage hotel of India. All this is proof enough of the fact that it is indeed a fabulous place to live in.
