I along with my family visited the Malabar Beach Resort in mid January. We stayed there for two nights and three days. The property is at wonderful location just opposite to the Thottada Beach. Mr. Sunil is an excellent host who took great care in making our stay a comfortable one. The food served was very tasty and as per... More

The new bulding has more privacy as it has independent balcony/veranda. There is a new party hall and a garden with a... More

Just returned from an awesome trip. Though the trip was short(2 nights and 3 days) it was sweet. The Malabar beach resort in Kannur made a lot of difference. The hospitality of Mr Sunil (Manager/Owner of the resort) was gracious and words fall short to explain the care and attention me and my family received from him. Mr Sunil made... More

The resort is well maintained, calm and serene place for a relaxed outing. It is very close to the beach just 100 Meters away. It is a good place for morning walk and to watch the sunset. The beach is almost like a private beach as there are not many people around. Rooms were cozy and comfortable, could be little... More

The Malabar Beach is a great place to get away for some quiet, serene calm and great food. We visited with our two dogs for 3 days and had an amazing time; great value for money too! The beach is just a short walk from the room and I wonder if anywhere else we will find such a beautiful, quiet... More

We were 3 people who drove down from my hometown Coorg. The owner Sunil gave us the driving directions and we arrived there through the narrow winding coastal roads of Kerela without any problems. He took excellent care of us, and made a whole lot of tasty food to order as per our tastes. There was never a shortage of... More

Malabar beach resort is a great location to unwind far away from the crowded town but near enough to see all the sights around. The old colonial resort setting is great and the service provided by Sunil the Manager and his team was outstanding. If you are a foodie and is looking for good north Malabari food, go no further....

A group of ten arrived by coach down a very narrow lane only to find building work in the front of the property. We were shown our rooms which were not clean and no upper bed sheets were provided the whole stay (3 days) although asked for everyday. The restaurant had dirty table clothes on with chairs piled high, certainly... More

Outstanding service from Mr. Sunil and his staff were much appreciated by myself and my parents, who accompanied me on this very relaxing and peaceful 2 day break in Kannur (Cannanore). The beach was one of the best I have been to around my travels in India, clean, uncrowded and excellent surf! We were also pleasantly surprised by the bountiful... More

Very relaxing and peaceful place. Close to beach , you can just walk down anytime you wish to the beach and it is close to nearby tourist places in Kannur. Enjoyed our stay for 3 days. The hospitality shown was good and you can enjoy some good kerala dishes made to order!
