Stayed here in January 2014 for two nights before going to Mysore, the owner couldn't have been more helpful, arranged a taxi for our travel to mysore and a rickshaw to take us to the local shops. The beach is practically deserted with only a couple of guest houses along the stretch. The food provided is excellent. There is nowhere... More

I wish Kerala had more places like Malabar Beach hotel. This place has a gorgeous and very tranquil beach. The service and meals were top notch. The room and bathroom was the most modern and easily the cleanest I've had in Indian competing with only 5 star hotels. The owner speaks great English and is happy to share some information... More
