Unlike some previous reviewers, I really loved this place. Its in a very quiet location with miles of unspoilt beach fringed with palms and is just perfect if one really wants to get away from it all and relax. The rooms were lovely and spacious with a small dressing area and plenty of cupboards and drawers. I do like an... More

This place was ok, but one of those quite average and unmemorable places. If you are just looking for a clean and spacious place to stay for a beach holiday, it is completely fine. Highs: beach front property and the beach is beautiful, guest room buildings in nice garden, rooms are clean and spacious with nice balconies/terraces. Lows: restaurant area... More

Nice property along the beach. Its not a 5 star but worth the visit. Buffet breakfast and dinner was included in our package but we had ordered a-la-carte for lunch the second day. It was very tasty. Service was good and people were friendly. Make sure you visit the place where backwaters meet the sea. Its around 7KM from the... More

Very well located on beach side, this resort is spread across 3 acres which includes a private beach.. Beach is very clean & non polluted. It's deep blue though tides are very rough. Good infrastructure, well maintained resort. I give 5/5 to their staff right from GM Dinesh Kumar to receptionist, chef, room boys all were very cordial and helpful.... More

We stayed at the place for three days and experienced the Malabar coast especially the clean beaches and the estuary. The Hotel GM personally ensures you are comfortable and takes care of any issues . There is not too much choice to eat and F & B can be improved. Staff courtesy and friendliness makes up for this gap .... More
