Didn't manage to stay here, however dropped by for breakfast / lunch. The place is breathe taking and has a great surreal view of the backwaters. You could just sit and dream away. Had breakfast here and it was the best chutney I have ever eaten! It was great with the appam! We were staying nearby and requested if it... More

The hotel is perfectly located, away from the main beach road facing the backwaters in a quiter part of Cherai beach. We booked... More

What I loved most was the message Les 3 Elephants gave out which I didn't see elsewhere in some of the fancier hotels. Owners that trusted and respected their staff End of season but... More

We traveled with our two small girls (3 and 4 years) and stayed in the 2 bedroom cottage. The staff were so lovely and flexible - e.g. making earlier meals for the kids. The absolute highlight of our trip was the food here - so good!!! Even if you're not staying, it would be worth coming for Lunch 1-3pm or... More
