We stayed in Costa Malabari 2, the one right on the beach on the weekend of Aug 17-18. For us, the lasting impression of this stay is Mr. Kurien, the manager. He is extremely helpful, un-intrusive and is a treasure trove of knowledge. Coming to the place itself, the location is excellent, the rooms were clean, the staff was very... More

We stayed two nights here (the one on the cliff, #2?) and enjoyed the tranquility, quiet, and natural setting. Our hosts and cooks were kind and helpful. Our room was spacious and comfortable, with a large bathroom and a ceiling fan. There were two entrances to the room, one at the back that went out to the back patio, where... More

Costa Malabari is a lovely place to stay. It is a house above a cliff on a beach. The house is spacious and clean. Food is served dutifully at the appropriate time. .Mr. Kurien, the manager is very nice and helpful. He booked my stay in the next town I was visiting, and also changed dollars into rupees for me...

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...
