We had an enjoyable stay with Shibu for four nights. We booked an a/c room which was very good value, and had a lovely balcony. There are different levels of rooms to choose from. Good location close to beach and restaurants. The restaurant was closed when we were there late april, however the yoga sessions were still being held twice... More

I spent 3 weeks at Akshay Beach Resort and I did not want to leave the place. The hotel restaurant, Passion Fruit, has the best vegetarian food I have ever had in India (try masa dosa and vegetable kofta). The place is affordable for budget travelers, it is peaceful and very clean. It was my first time in India when... More

Beautifully kept hotel, almost like a homestay. Shibu is a perfect host, he recommended a place to get our hair cut as well as the more traditional shopping options! The room was very spacious and the balcony delightful. The southern end of the beach is a flat 3 minute walk from the hotel. The restaurant on site served wonderful Keralan... More
