The rooms are very clean and well equipped, and all this at a very minimal cost. The hosts are also very kind people. Keratheeram is located just a minute away from the beach. All the good restaurants are also in the vicinity. Free wifi is available, but the signal is slightly poor.

Finding Keratheeram after months traveling around India was such a gift. It felt like staying with family with the warmth and kindness of such amazing hosts. It is perfectly located just off the cliff but you can hear the ocean only a minute walk away. The hammocks are just icing on the cake...and there's a great rooftop for morning yoga!!... More

We had a lovely stay at Keratheeram Beach Resort. Although it is in no way a 'resort' it is however a neat, tidy and clean guesthouse that offered both AC and NON-AC rooms. As we arrived in off season and were staying for 10 nights we were offered a great deal of 350 rupees per night for a non AC... More

There's a hammock! How lovely to have a hammock outside your room! We stayed for 4 nights and loved it. We upgraded from fan to a/c room but that's just because I didn't mind out forking a bit more for the chilled air (environmental impact noted though). But I thought it was still a relatively affordable guesthouse compared to prices... More

After a disastrous rather expensive two nights in a near by place, the madama at Keratheeram welcomed me with open arms. The room was clean and relatively quiet and most of all, super cheap! Great place.

It was a lovely place to stay, probably the best one relating quality/price. Really clean and neat, the owners are always there for whatever you need, but will give you all the space and privacy required. Really close to the main road and the steps to the beach on Cliff Area. Enjoy!

Don't have much to add that hasn't been covered in the other reviews. Quiet, safe and friendly, it was the perfect place to arrive at after our very first Indian cab ride. The owner's family cooks a great feast for the guests once a week.

I stayed in the guest house several times recently and it was a lovely experience. The family who run it are really sweet and even emailed me to see if I had got home ok. As I was visiting india on my own it was important to me to find a guesthouse that was safe and secure and this definitely... More
