There are several hostels named Costa Malabari, we stayed at the one located at Thottada beach. If You have a choice I would recommend staying at Costa Malabari no 2 that is located on a cliff with a private strip of beach below. Meals are included in the price and are excellent. Nearby beaches are beautiful and completely deserted -... More

I was at Costa Malabari on a yoga retreat. The rooms are clean and basic though this doesn't mean uncomfortable by any stretch. The food was amazing and the staff really wanted to make the stay the best they could. It got very hot on a couple of nights due to the electricity failing - these things happen. One of... More

Stayed there for just one night last month. The caretaker, Mr. Kurian was very helpful and provided proper guidance - the best route to/from bangalore / places to visit in town. He even mentioned the pros/cons of another hotel when we checked out :) . There are 3 costa malabaris - i stayed in no. 2 which is (almost) right... More

Loved our room and the ocean breezes. Mr Kurian is a wealth of information about the Theyyam ceremonies and will make every effort for his guests to share that experience. The food was excellent and fresh. The ocean at the beach can be a bit rough, but it's a nice place to cool off.

We enjoyed our stay at Costa Malabari #1 (about 5 mins walk from the beach). The rooms were clean and comfortable, with mosquito nets (appreciated but unneeded). The food was mostly nice, though several times it had been cooked too far in advance and was served cold. Also, the serving style was a bit too formal for our tastes (a... More

We stayed at Costa Malabari 2 - that's the one perched on the cliff above the Arabian Sea. We throughly enjoyed the 4 days we spent here - wandering down to the different beaches, spotting birds, talking to the locals, walking the back way into Kannur (be sure to take in the early morning fish market), spending half the night...

When we saw the price, we thought twice about staying here. It was more than worth it, and affordable. Once we were here we didn't spend any other money. This place is awesome, off the beaten track and the food amazing. Staff was friendly an took very good care of us. The beds- super comfy and clean. Loved it. Stayed... More

Ten minutes walk away is a longer beach - also undeveloped and there is another beyond that. The beaches are remarkably clean, given that they are or far from the city of... More
