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

I arrived at Mandala planning to stay for 2 nights but ended up staying for 3 - it would have been a longer stay if i didn't have to fly home the next day! I stayed in the small room one the beach which is incredibly basic with only one plug socket. For the price of the stay (650 Rs... 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

The night we arrived we were quite happy because the rooms were nice, clean and cheap. The next morning we had a smal missunderstanding with the houseboat service and suddenly the... 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

Cheap with clean rooms. The best host you'll ever find - Jay, who will arrange anything for you: backwaters, canoeingtrips, you name it. They have a really cool and relaxed atmosphere which makes you lean back and enjoy life. The service is impeccable, but the laundry-service could be better. We have recommended this place to every budget-traveller going to Alleppey.... More

Jay's beach houses and cottages were lovely. We only stayed one night but thanks to the beach front location, stilted chill out area, hammocks and the staff's hospitality it was a perfect stay. A barbeque was set up by Jay in the evening for the 15 or so travelers, much fun followed. Recommend sleeping in the upstairs covered chill area... More

I stayed with Jay in Manadala house for three nights and it was just nice and relaxing. The house s right at the beach and Jay provides a very relaxing feeling. The nice things is there are always people around and the atmosphere is very relaxing. Rooms are basic and simple but the price is fair for that. It is... More
