Very nice rooms, view of the lagoon, wonderful host and hostess, great local food. I recommend the Blue Mermaid very much. The ocean was warm and welcoming. The road is long and windy, but you will get there.

The Blue Mermaid was a gem located right on Thottada Beach. The location was beautiful and the beach was almost empty! Indu was extremely friendly and helpful in arranging activities nearby. On our arrival (from London!), she had arranged for all guests at the homestay to attend a large Theyyam festival, which we felt very lucky to attend. She arranged... More

We arrived at Blue Mermaid after a long, hot and dusty train ride from Kochi. Indu immediately made us feel welcome by organising lunch for us, even though we hadn't warned her that we wouldn't have eaten. The rooms were immaculate. Clean, airy, with comfy beds and hot showers. We had a lovely little terrace to ourselves where we could... More

The blue mermaid is a real gem in Kerala. What a wonderful place. The location is exquisite, the grounds are beautifully maintained with gorgeous flowers and plants in pots, the rooms are pristine clean and the food is utterly heavenly. Indu, the hostess looked after us above and beyond expectations and was always happy to arrange taxis and trips for... More

I had 5 lovely days in Kannur in the Blue Mermiad. My room was clean and the shower nice and hot. The bed was good and clean. Unfortunately I was sick and my host did her utmost best to provide me with the right things to eat and drink for my condition. It helped and I felt better soon. Very... More

we were incredibly well looked after in this magical water side hideaway. The food was all incredibly delicious and everybody was always smiling. It was the perfect way for us to finish our travels. Would highly recommend it to anyone.

Stayed with Indu in ac room on 2nd floor of new building. Very clean and nice room though bed a bit on the hard side. Food was excellent and plentiful and Indu aims to please. She will organize transport and excursions. Beach is undeveloped and often empty. Water is delicious but undertow can be strong. My one complaint is that... More

The first week of our third month of budget traveling through India, my friend and I decided to treat ourselves and take a break from the chaos of India. We checked into Blue Mermaid and could not have been more pleased. Highlights: Thottada Beach - serene white sand, completely empty during our stay and impeccably clean. The only sounds are... More

This place gives you a real at home feeling. The owner is so courteous, helpful, and caring that really makes you wonder why. She takes care of you not as guests but rather as family making sure that you have everything you need and taking care of all your requests. The food is the typical coastal type with different fishes.... More

Three things define a stay for me – the rooms, service by the staff and the food. The Blue Mermaid scores top marks in each of these categories. The best part of the stay was Indu and her hospitality, she tried her best to make sure all my requests (and that of other guests), however miniscule (and varied), were fulfilled... More
