The resort has a quite a nice pool and the rooms are pretty cheap too. The rooms were small though but thats probably what you can expect at the price. You will have to walk few metres for the beach and at night the route gets too dark. However if you are totally new to the place and do not... More

We booked this hotel after reading so many good reviews in TripAdvisor. But we regretted selecting this hotel multiple times during our stay. In clear trip, we booked 3 people room.. But when we reached, they said, as per their hotel policy, they can't allow 3 adults in a room.. Whose fault is this? Clear Trip or hotel. Who should... More

We stayed for 7 nights here at the end of May/beginning of June. As it was the start of monsoon season, the hotel was very quiet but we like it that way! A lovely swimming pool, which we had to ourselves and the staff were friendly and welcoming. The restaurant had very good food and the rooms were comfortable and... More

Hotel: Brilliant!! Reception was great! The staff here are fantastic!! They will go out their way to help you. We stayed in a deluxe garden view cottage, cottage 2. Huge bedroom, walk in wardrobe, wet room, modern shower. Very clean, very Indian which is what you want, not ultra modern and plastic! The gardens are beautiful!! Just like the photos.... More

We loved the beautiful gardens and well-maintained pool. It also has easy access to the clifftop with all the interesting shops and restaurants, and beach. We went to some of the yoga studios every day to do fabulous yoga. Rooms are comfortable and clean.

We stayed at the Akhil twice on our tour of Kerala. Once on the way south on our way to Kovalam and Kanukaymari and then again on our way north. It was pre-monsoon and therefore pretty quiet which suited us. Some days we had the beautiful pool to ourselves. The AC room was quite small but very clean. All the... More

Spent 2 nights at this resort in early May '15. One of the main reasons why I booked this resort was the pool - which is nice and well-maintained. However I cannot say the same about the other aspects of the resort. While the rooms (garden view and pool view) are large, they are not kept in a clean manner.... More

Highlight is the swimming pool area - very clean and tidy, and as it was low season...there was no one else there! We spent most of our time here. Standard room was of good size with an outside seating area facing the garden. Spotlessly clean. Room could do with another coat of paint. Service was very friendly, everyone was accommodating....
