I had my one day stay here and it was just awesome and peaceful. The location is very close to the sea and you can enjoy the beach to the core.

Amazing location, perfect accommodation, wonderful staff! After 5 weeks in an Ayurvedic Hospital I couldn't have hoped for more! Muhajir, Ganesh and the rest of the team were so kind! Fantastic value for money, truly a slice of paradise!

I stayed at Maadathil Cottages in April 2014 after having heard about the place from a third party. It was my first visit to India, and I just wanted to relax, unwind and rejuvinate. They arranged a transfer to pick me up from the airport as arriving really early, and I couldn't have been more happy arriving at Maadathil and... More
