Kadaltheeram Beach Resort was the last stop during our 2 weeks round trip in India. We enjoyed our stay there very much and we were very happy not to have booked an accommodation directly at the Kovalam beach. Philip, the owner of the hotel, is an excellent host and food is fantastic there. We are already missing the beautiful beach... More

Our second visit to Kadaltheram Beach. Our first visit was in January 2012. Our return visit did not disappoint. This is only a small property with 6 rooms. We stay in the Mermaid room on the first floor of the main building with a good balcony with wonderful views. The room is basic but very comfortable This room now has... More

This year was our second visit to Philips small and friendly hotel on nellikunnu beach. It didnt disappoint. This really is a one off. Philips natural warm hospitality and friendly helpful advice and service skill make it a unique experience. His small staff of Ambi and Raj the Nepalese chef round off the front of house. Everything is on a... More

We've just returned from 12 days at Kadaltheeram, the main part of our first trip to India. We stayed there in the second half of January. Philip and Ambi, the owners, provide the personal, relaxed, welcoming, non-formulaic service you don't often find these days. Spent our days relaxing under the coconut palms, enjoying Raj's great food in the restaurant, swimming... More

Spent a lovely week here last year at Easter. Booking and communication was easy, Phil was pleasure to deal with before and during our stay. He organised Ambi to collect us from the airport in his beautiful old Ambassador car. We took a Kerala house, no A/C but the fan and breeze sufficient. It did get a little warm during... More

We have just returned from a 2 week stay at this guest house and enjoyed every minute. The initial sight was a shock as Kadaltheeram is reached down a very bad road with enormous pot holes and then you have to walk along a very narrow alley. Then you reach Kadaltheeram and you're in for a wonderful surprise. We had... More

We didn't stay here as we had hired a Beach House further down the beach. We did however eat here 4 times during our 2 night stay on the beach! The food was really great & Philip the owner was very helpful. They also allowed us to do 'take away' at lunchtime on a large tray and we just bought... More

Rather late writing this review. Stayed here in January 2012 for 1 week, as part of a month holiday traveling in Kerala and tamil nadu. Stayed in the Keralan beach house. Our room was lovely.

Only 25 minutes away from the main train station and international airport. We made our way down a small narrow road going through the village full of smiles and friendly people. We stayed in one side of Kerala House, a traditional Indian building with a palm roof. Inside was spotless and very well kept with a fridge and tea making... More
