I came to India with a group of students from the University of Michigan to study Indian classical dance, and our trip to Kerala at the Malabar Beach resort was definitely one of the highlights of the trip. Sunil was an excellent host. The rooms were great, the food was amazing, and the beach was peaceful and beautiful. If you... More

This place is HEAVEN ON EARTH. It's unbelievable. Private Beach. Swaying Palms. Crashing Waves. Lovely Birds. That's the natural part of the beauty. Then there's the absolute FEASTS put on by host Sunil- the spotless and beautiful rooms, and the sage advice and help Sunil gives the guests about "what to see" in Kannur. a THOUSAND stars. Forget Hawaii. Forget... More

Sunil and his staff at the Malabar Beach were so hospitable! I came with a group of 7, during the "off season" for the resort, and I honestly would not have been able to tell the difference. They catered to us in every way possible. Sunil personally gave us a tour of some of the great sites in Kannur, including... More

What a wonderful weekend! We were able to spend ample time on the peaceful and clean beach. The rooms were neat and tidy, with full amenities. The friendly and helpful staff served us delicious food every meal. The weekend was finished off with an incredibly relaxing ayurvedic massage from the resort's masseuse. We could not have had a better trip.

The friendly staff, delicious food, and pleasant rooms create an incredible experience. And the rooms are just a short walk away from an incredible ocean beach! A very secluded area, great to get away.

The Malabar Beach is a real gem. Its bright white, well constructed façade exudes that attractive new feeling. Its well manicured lawns are a balm for weary eyes. And its warm, smiling staff treat you like family. The property is surrounded by constantly swaying palm trees and is hidden away from all of Kannur. You discover this when you first... More

This place is heavenly. Beautiful lawn, colonial style resort which is mesmerizing. Two minutes walk from the property will lead you to the beach, which will give you a feeling of a clean private beach. You can hang out even when it is dark at the beach, its safe. Delicious food, clean rooms, Great service. Must visit place. You won't... More

When it comes to a family vacation, leaving the little ones behind is not always an option. Hit the road for some much-needed vacation & ready to spend some time beach side for a good splash , don’t forget to bring your four-legged friends along for the ride.
