A short stay for 2 days and 1 night keeps us feeling very nostalgic about the beautiful place visited with the night stay at this lovely resort and enjoy authentic Kerala dishes. Absolutely serene and secluded from the town hustle and bustle. Was very humbled by the courteous service rendered. With all the facilities provided at a very reasonable price,... More

Their pool and service was so inviting that we almost forgot about our trip and spent... More

The place offers genuine hospitality. One gets completely relaxed with the pool that can be seen just outside the room. Genuine room service though there was an issue of Voltage Fluctuation during our stay. What this place lacks is a spa which could have taken one to an extreme bliss.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights at the end of a tour of Southern India. The hotel was quiet and comfortable with clean and spacious rooms, a restaurant that served very good food, and was within easy walking distance of the beach area. There was an open air pool in the centre of the small hotel complex.... More

My mum and I stayed at the hotel for 4 nights last month and what a wonderful stay we had. The room was comfortable, well appointed and super clean (a novelty for India). The swimming pool was a delight particularly with the local beach being a bit of a trek. The breakfast was plentiful and delicious (particularly the local fare).... More

We had a lovely 3-night stay at Deshadan. After a long-haul flight, this was a great way to start the holiday. Staff were very welcoming, our room clean and comfortable (although the mattress was very soft), and breakfast tasty (e.g. masala omlettes and fresh fruit). As all other places we visited, the only downside to breakfast was that no real... More

I stayed last November/ December time and I so hope to return. The staff and facilities were excellent... Sunil the manager went out of his way to make sure everything went smoothly. Such a peaceful and relaxing place to stay whilst taking part in a yoga retreat just outside the hotel. As a female solo traveller it's important to feel... More

We recently spent a wonderful 10 days at this hotel. The staff were exceptional, friendly and helpful. We stayed in a 2 bedroom cottage, each room had en suite bathroom and there was a small communal seating area which was great for us to unwind at the end of the day.
