We loved loved loved our stay at Oyster Opera. Although, after eating the fresh Keralan cuisine while we were there, it's been difficult to return to our normal diet, which now seems lacking in so many ways. We stayed in a little cottage right on the backwaters, enjoyed the friendly and attentive service, and did I mention the food?! We... More

The place very well isolated from mad crowd and a great getaway to have a liesure. The Hospitality from My Gul and Ganesh was very good. The stay was memorable and one of the best had in life time.A boar ride from resort to near by seashore to enjoy sunset was arranged which was enjoyable.

We booked the floating cottage during Christmas holidays. It was a nice stay. They take the guests to a nearby beach in their boat. That beach was so clean compared to the Bekal beach and less crowded too. Almost like a private beach for us. Food is great and they have a lot of options in their buffet. I would... More

Actually, The word Resort in the name is misleading and the expectations going awry. If you are seeking a serene, quiet and time to yourself, this is the place. I do recommend for families and group of families because the place has basics for everybody's needs and ideal for spending a lazy day. Non veg food is awesome and My... More

This well known place is perhaps over rated and over blown by the hype . I last stayed on Bekal beach in Taj vivanta and since this place was highly recommended by the travel books mainly because of the oyster farming - I decided to have a look at it and may be stay there on my next visit .Icalled...

Starting from reviews, talking with Mr Gul for booking and when actually arrived the oyster opera feeling just awesome. The floating cottage is the best where we spent two nights. From anywhere in the island it catches everyone's concentration. The most awesome feeling one can enjoy when the cottage will be freed from rope at the night and you will... More
