Oyster Opera resort is located on an island which is connected to the mainland by a narrow bridge. Since the bridge was under construction, we parked our car at the owner’s residence from where the owner, Mr Gul Mohamed, arranged for autos to transfer us to the resort about half km away. The nearest railway station is Charvatur about 7km... More

Best things first - Great food. Very humble, down to the earth, simple staff. Scenic location. Not satisfied with: Maintenance of the cottages. Sand getting into rooms, bed ... Not easy to clean, wasn't cleaned by the staff. Most of the rooms are non-ac. Mosquito problem in the night. Rats

If you want peace of mind, a green and pleasant place for the whole family, there is no other destination than this. We opted for the day package and drove via Bekal fort to the resort. The roads after Kasargod town is bad for about 20kms. Otherwise, the roads are excellent. We managed to reach the resort using Google maps.... More

I had visited this place as a solo traveller. The cottages are clean...in good condition but they could do with a fresh coat of paint. The place is sooooo beautiful that you can just laze around in the hammocks and gaze at the backwaters. What i found exceptionally good about this place is the warmth of the owner and the... More

Taking the train to Chevathur (spelling?) and then being picked up at the station in a classic Ambassador was a great way to arrive at Oyster Opera. Food was good, location was amazing, room was nice and the views outstanding. I went swimming in the estuary and went across the estuary to the beach side. I saw the oyster farming... More

The oyster opera is set in a wonderful location but unfortunately fails to deliver. The accommodation is well laid out and clean. The setting is wonderful and peaceful. Wifi is available but only at the administration office at the entrance gate. However, even though the resort is only seven years old, it is in need of a face lift as... More

Good location on the backwaters and a great variety of local cuisine. 'Resort' has a home-made feel so don't expect luxury, but a great place to unwind and enjoy the tranquility. In hindsight a little expensive.

Went there during December 2014, with my close friends. All of us hailing from southern Kerala. Few among us were very skeptical about this place at first, as this was not a famous/ or usual holiday destination, which completely changed during the first day of stay. We were in love with the "FOOD" and beauty of the place. Go for:... More
