Biggest USP of the resort is it's location, bang next to the beach. The resort is a large well maintained property vastly dotted with numerous plantations and little ponds. We arrived late in the evening (closer to 9 pm) and had called up the reception before arrival. Cottage and other necessary arrangements were in place. The cottage was spacious and... More

I had been planning a weekend getaway near Cochin with my family of 4 including 2 kids aged 7 and 2. Obviously it had to be a child friendly place and not too far away. I checked out (on the internet) several places at Alleppey, Fort Kochi, Cherai and Thrissur. FInally zeroed in on Abad Turtle Beach. Reviews of the... More

This resort has the potential to be outstanding but just a few things let it down. The rooms are clean and well kept the housekeeping is very thorough and you get the little towel animals on your bed. The beach is gorgeous very quiet and unspoilt. However our beach villa we paid extra for is actually behind a private home... More

Comfortable villas in lovely grounds. Beautiful beach and really interesting butterfly garden. Dinner and breakfast were buffet style - not my favourite way to eat but variety was good and food tasty.

Situated right on the edge of one of the finest beaches imaginable, here one is spoilt for choice where to spend the day: should you opt for your hammock under the swaying palms in the garden of your bungalow? Stroll around the fabulous butterfly garden? Or ask the beach attendant to place your deckchair under your favourite palm on the... More

We stayed in a beach villa. The bungalow has enough space and is very clean. The staff is very helpful, friendly and always have a (true) smile on their faces. The Ayurveda treatments were absolutely wonderful and the consultations with the doctor very professional. Our overall experience: a very beautiful little resort with a familiar and personal atmosphere. This resort... More

Beautiful rooms, lovely staff, gorgeous beach, ok food. Only problem is that on the beach next to the private beach the locals poo there every morning. We didn't realise this until we had spent a whole day in the sea and some of our party became sick.

At first we were a little sceptical when we arrived as we thought it looked a bit basic. Then we went into the bungalow and it had everything a 5 star hotels has and a semi open air bathroom. It's not right on the beach because they're not allowed to build on the beach but it's a 2 minute walk... More

This is a huge resort with cottages spread all over. They have got private beach which is great. Very clear water and peaceful. Unfortunately there is hardly any beach view though beach is not far. Excellent to walk and swim. Food can be better and have wider choice and restaurant is slightly congested, may be we felt so after coming... More
