Waves is a real find! Seema and Arun are really great hosts - nothing is too much trouble, and the home cooked food was both plentiful, varied and delicious. The super cute rooms are located just above a basically private beach making the stay really relaxing - literally 30seconds to get to the beach. Great views for sunset too. The... More

We spent three relaxing nights and days at Waves over the holidays...the hosts are extremely helpful, kind and hospitable. Amazing food. It was a delight to be able to use the small but perfect private beach to swim and read without offending local traditions or attracting too much unwanted male attention. We had the top room facing the sea and... More

We stayed for 7 nights and loved every minute of our time at Waves. We had the top floor room of the cottage that overlooks the sea and felt that we'd been blessed by the 'best room' fairy! It was large and airy, high ceiling, comfy bed, great bathroom, fan (which we didn't need much because of the sea breeze),... More

We moved here after availability at our other home state an out. We stayed in the homestay section of Waves which is a bit cheaper and further up the road. But you eat your meals down in the lovely cliff top garden and can hang out there. Below the cliff there is access to a little cove. Otherwise it's just... More

Beautiful spacious clean room, friendly helpful service, great food and cold beverages available! But the (virtually) private beach is what sets this place ahead of any others. It is simply awesome to take the steps down to a secluded sandy beach flanked with rocks either side. Do it!

A very special place. Amazing hosts, helpful people. Excellent food, super location. I can't wait to go back - the location is sublime, isolated but the hosts will provide you with your needs. This is no resort for traditional luxury beach-goers but if you're ready ffor a nature and ocean experience, this is a dream. Not easy to swim but... More

Seema was a perfect host, and we had such a beautiful stay in January 2015. The place is in the middle of a small quiet village and there is not only their small private beach, but five minutes walk takes you to an enormous almost deserted sandy beach. We decided to stay in one of the cottage rooms. The basic... More

Thank you Seema for an absolutely wonderful stay. You, your family and your team are so kind, generous and genuinely hospitable. Your kindness, delicious food, comfortable rooms and relaxing hammocks ensured that we had a calm and rejuvenating break. The practically deserted beaches are one of Kerala's natural gems. Thank you for helping us to have a perfect start to... More

I had a great stay at Waves, just for the record I stayed there when Doekje and Hestervan were there and they were an extremely obnoxious and rude couple who did try to leave without paying so please ignore there review. The location was by far and away one of the best beaches I visited in India and believe me... More

Just 8 or so km from central Kannur is this amazing little place. Perched above a private bay is a Waves Beach. Quiet, relaxed and great food all home prepard. Amazingly the wifi signal was superb.. As were the hammocks. And a untouched, non commercial beach is just 5 mins away. Watch Dolphins, kingfishers and Hawks from the beach. Surf... More
