As this was a new resort, we did not know what to expect. Having stayed for three days, we cannot recommend it too highly. Our cottage, with its open-air bathroom, was virtually on the empty, clean beach with safe swimming; the food was excellent as were the prices; and the staff were without exception delightful. A highlight of our trip.

We spent 3 nice days in a small villa located directly on the beach. The villa is decorated with taste and you do not feel like being in an hotel. The place is very nice, the beach is clean and there is a large swimming pool that we were almost the only ones to use. The food is delicious and... More

The resort has excellent access to the beach and provides great rooms and service all round. Food is excellent, especially if you order the coastal food. Staff is very helpful and this is a place you would definitely like to go back to.

I came here to spend a couple of days at the beach after my 3-week panchakarma treatment in inland Kerala. To be honest, I was a bit disappointed after having read all the raving reviews about the resort. However the place is not bad if your expectations are reasonable. I stayed in a deluxe cottage, which is comfortable, spacious, very... More

Me and my wife stayed at Malabar Ocean Front Resort & Spa for 2 nights in the beginning of January. We traveled by road via Mysore and Madekeri and it was an absolute delight going up and down the hill with reasonably well-maintained roads to reach MORS. This route is highly recommended…! Having traveled for close to 11 hours, MORS... More

Away from crowds, excellent beach resort with great beach; Kids loved the place and didn't want to come back. Beach facing villas are awesome; clean, modern and spacious, I loved open luxury bathroom with no/half roof.
