I loved my stay here. The rooms were basic, btu the staff and help was super. Jay and his team cover everything and anything. Theres a little tree house to sit and spend the night laughing and playing music right on the beach. A stay for 3 days easily becomes 3 weeks. Watch out.

The room we took was a ground floor one for 650 Best budget place in town. Awesome location on a very quiet part of the beach, almost private. Good internet speeds (for India). Laid back chilled atmosphere. Very basic room, not much light a bit cave light, needs a thorough clean. No hot water. What makes this place is Jay... More

Dear Madam, Thank you for your valued information. Dear travelers from this review itself you can see that its a fake review. 1) They said they booked the place. If you booked the place then why you went to another guest houses and searched for a room? We don't push anyone stay with us if they don't like. The summary... More

I chosen Mandala Beach House, because it was suggested to me by a friend. She particularly told me to take the main house with the beach view, so I did. The house had a really nice beach view and it was literally on the beach, which was great. The house is wooden, so the condition of it was not perfect.... More

My group of eight had a wonderful, two night stay at Jay's beach house. Jay was great in organizing our accommodation over the phone, and was very nice to pick us up at the bus station despite our bus being very later. We really enjoyed the day long backwaters tour, it exceeded our expectations and was very easy to organize.... More

Hi everyone I would like to share our experience at mandala beach. We planned to do some boat cruise through the backwater and asked for the prices at the hotel. We knew it should be cheaper and declined their offer. Instead we ordered an auto to go to the harbour to directly negotiate with the jetis. However, instead of just... More

Jay, the owner, talked to us at the train station and convinced us to stay at his place! Best decision ever! We were three people and got a small, really clean room directly at the beach. It was a really cool and relaxed atmosphere. Good restaurants are not so far away from this place. For the next day Jay organised... More
