We found the place very relaxing. The property is well done, with large rooms, lot of open spaces and friendly staff. There is a rustic feeling to the place and a slight air of negligence, probably because it is not very well staffed. It's not on the beach but, very close to it. That was bit of a dissappointment.

Kerala Destinations had arranged our stay at Abad Turtle and we had two cottages arranged for us, however as the check in time was 1 pm and check out at 12 noon we had to wait for our cottages to get ready. We did not mind waiting for our rooms to get ready as we were given access to the... More

This place was idyllic. Set in beautiful surroundings and extremely peaceful, it is the ideal spot to chill out even if the location is a bit isolated. We were booked in here because it fitted our budget better than the neighbouring Marari Beach Hotel, but we had one gentleman coming along from there to admire our sunbeds' location on the... More

We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of our couple weeks trip around Kerala - and it was just right. One of the more expensive places we stayed in but worth it for level of comfort and service and food. We had a one room villa right next to the beach and it was beautifully clean and had... More

We stayed for two nights in February. The place is excellent . The things I liked most is the lay out of rooms with enough space between the rooms and private sitting areas outside each room. Also almost the private beach for the resort. Food was also nice a little more variety would be a delight. The staff is very... More

Abad Turtle is one of the finest resorts I have stayed in India. My wife and I reached on the 28th January and were welcomed with nice garland and juice. Moving into the rooms was quick and staff showed us the necessary details nicely. Cottage was clean and cosy. Restaurant serves B'fast, lunch and dinner at specific hours only but... More
