We have just returned home after a 3 week stay in Kerala, travelling through out the region. Our first stop for 6 nights was Mollys Retreat, it by far exceeded our expectations. The rooms were spacious, clean and well equipped. The staff were all very helpful when ever we asked. The other clients were a joy and a source of... More

Dharma and Shiboo were very welcoming when we recently stayed at Molly's. The Inn is precisely as their website suggests, a quiet haven at which the rest of India seems to be left at the gates. The rooms are clean and sparse, though they do have a refrigerator and lovely balcony to enjoy a view over the large and quiet... More

Small intimate restaurant ,attentive service,friendy staff and residents staying at this tiny hotel welcomed us into conversation.Excellent food,spicy Beef Rendang and chilli chicken tikka were divine . May investigate staying at this little hidden gem next year-it appeals because of its size and location, within a stones throw of the beach and local shops but feels like a green retreat... More

Plenty of sunbeds for everybody as this Hotel only has eight rooms no leaving towels overnight! A few restaurant nearby on the beach which over the years we have used all of... More

The property is nice but management is not good at the time of booking I asked about indian food but not get breakfast on first day we go out side for breakfast which cost 700 rupee. On second day they arrange the same. Don't go by foreigners review. As compared to aminities and services it's costly.

We visited Kovalam in November 2014 and found Mollys Retreat only used the restaurant but we had no hesitation in bookings in the hotel for three weeks in March. Just returned from a fantastic holiday, staff are brilliant and cannot do enough for you, the owner Heather is brilliant and can give you all the information you need, enjoyed it... More

We liked the small intimate setting ov Mollys. No need to scramble for a sunlounger, With only 8 rooms and 16 loungers, enough for all. The pool was in lovely setting surrounded by coconut palms, flowers and greenery. Sometimes we found quite a lot of flies in it though. It was handy having a restaurant, the food wasgood and reasonably... More
