Despite hiccup during check in (I did book half board package), everything else ran smoothly and i had relaxed weekend stay at this property. Nice cottages, smiling staff and excellent restaurant!!! Only to note that they have no alcohol licence, so get your beer elsewhere. They have their own butterfly and vegetable garden in their vast territory. Only drawback: bad... More

Abad turtle beach resort became the perfect end to my holidays. Though I visited in an off season, it was great fun. It has a great staff, well mannered providing prompt service. The cottages are excellent and well equipped but can be a good 5 min walk from the reception/restaurant. The highlight is obviously the beach. I don't think there... More

In God's own country, Mararikulam beach is a hidden gem... wonderful and secluded. The Abad Turtle resort is a perfect match for accommodation to enjoy the beauty of the beach. A huge property by the beach, with "cottages between the trees" format, a private sit-out for each cottage complete with a hammock and romantic sun-roofed bathrooms. Rooms are big and... More

The perfect place if you wish to relax and feel pampered. Just loved staying there and do almost nothing. They have the most amazing restaurant and every day we tasted something new and wonderful. The Ayurvedic center was the best I have ever tried and the sunset was just magical. One day we rented bikes at the hotel, went for... More

Amazing cottages and the cottage we stayed at had a spacious bathroom with a skylight and a tree growing inside!! Spacious rooms with your own private verandah/sit out as well as a hammock to lie about in. They has a... More

The best part of our stay was, we got upgraded to a Villa from a cottage...But the worst part was room service. They made us wait 1 hour for check-in and check-out, unlike any other Abad property. Apart from that, the property is awesome, you can spend all your time just roaming around. The resort has a private beac, which... More

We visited the property with extended family and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. The beach is spectacular and the resort provides a private access to the beach. Rooms are spacious and the bathrooms modern. Loved the sunlit roof in the bathroom. The staff was very friendly, yet not intrusive and were willing to accept a request or two with a... More
