Perfect location between the backwaters and beach for a peaceful and relaxing few days. Excellent food (especially the pineapple curry) and service from the wonderful staff. Also recommend the Ayurvedic massages and yoga.

This place is beautiful and the service is friendly and excellent as is the food. You can sip tea in the grounds and watch fishermen on the lake. X 4 of us stayed x6 nights here and really liked the relaxed friendly atmosphere. The French couple who own and run the place work hard and seem to treat staff well... More

Dear guest, Thank you for your positive review. We'll convey your compliment to our staff. We are happy that you enjoyed the place and the athmosphere. About your small complains: This bug matter is highly unusual, as we have a pest control professional daily on site. It is even more unlucky as you confessed a specific phobia concerning cockroach.

A perfect place to finish our trip in Kerela. Gorgeous setting, lovely rooms and very welcoming hosts. The food is delicious too - we even had lemon tart! We had a few challenges with our arrival in Cherai but Benjamin, Majorie and the other staff went out of their way to help us. I had read some bad reviews on... More

What a lovely stay we had! Quiet, nature, backwaters, sea, lovely food (great bread!!), friendly staff! When looking for a beach place I was looking for a nice and quiet place and not the locations that have a lot of tourists visiting already. Cherai beach had mixed reviews on Trip advisor but this location is perfect; staying at the backwaters... More

This is the start of a 1 month trip to India, a place where I booked to unwind, catch up on sleep and acclimatise. It's done exactly that. The photo looks exactly how it is, 11 bungalows, a pleasant communal area where all the eating and wifi-ing is done and a short walk to the beach. On the backwaters you... More

Le 3 Elephants is a hidden Gem. It is stylish, clean and run by a charming french couple, who greet you with ease and warmth at all times of day. The staff are friendly and very keen to please. Set back a little from the beach, Le 3 Elephants sits on the infamous Keralan back waters. The view from the... More

This hotel is a work of art, I love it. It's perfectly placed, on the backwaters and yet walking distance from the beach.The architecture and placement enhances the sense of tranquility and we enjoyed our mornings in a state of deep relaxation. The view of the backwaters is gorgeous and the perfect place to read, paint or simply do nothing.... More

We spent three nights at Les 3 Elephant in November, 2014, and very much enjoyed our time there. We were a group of 19 – four families travelling together with 8 adults and 11 kids ages 8-16. The resort consists of several huts that form three rows between the road and the backwaters. The rooms are spacious and nicely decorated... More

After over 2 weeks touring southern India we were looking forward to unwinding in the sun. On arrival we were shown to our room by one of the owners, unsurprisingly a French lady, very pleasant. The room was not bad but a bit pokey and no view. Two deck chairs on the veranda, I hate deck chairs. We asked if... More

Maybe not everyone's idea of fun, but this place has lots of simple charm. Lovely location on the water, comfortable rooms and very helpful friendly staff. The dinner menu was great, lobster for 600r, approximately £6.
