Such a wonderful location, surrounded by sea, backwater and small hills. Clean, spacious, comfortable rooms always greeted by gentle roar of and fantastic breeze of the sea which is a minute walk the resort. The sea is at your face actually. The exotic meal cooked by the ever smiling cooks is truly delicious. I am not from a foreign country,... More

My husband and I stayed at Blue Mermaid for 3 nights and it was really relaxing and peaceful. The family who runs this place take lots of pride in ensuring that their guests are happy and comfortable. They helped us arrange Ayruvedic massages and a visit to a Theyyam. We arrived at 10pm the first evening, and they were kind... More

I've stayed here before and had such a good time, this time i took my mother. We both had a wonderful stay. It's relaxed and local but with an international-ness that means tourists won't miss their creature comforts. Indu and Pradeep are the best hosts, their food is incomparable and the location first class. After a week here we feel... More

The location on a very nearly private beach is great, the gardens and hammocks are nice addition to the beach. Rooms were well maintained, clean and comfortable. Whilst the location on a quiet beach is good the Homestay is a little remote.No lunch is provided meaning a long wait from breakfast to dinner. The food was average to good. Guest... More

Such a wonderful guesthouse with a lovely garden area with hammocks, extremely friendly and helpful hosts, delicious food, and feet from a gorgeous sandy beach and lagoon. We stayed in the private bamboo room, which is separate from the other buildings and on stilts, and is really beautifully made. It is so peaceful there, and the porch area is a... More

This place is the perfect place to chill out and wind down! We arrived at 7:30pm after a 7 hr train journey having not made a booking. The host welcomed us, showed us to our room and then served us a cold beer and some of the best food in India! The ocean is around 30m away and is like... More

This is exactly what we were looking for on our honeymoon!!! 5 stars in every department. With a range of comfortable, clean and spacious rooms all located next to the lapping of the Arabian Sea and overlooking luscious backwaters you really can't go wrong. Add in there the amazing hospitality of Indu and Pradeep, the delicious food and plentiful amounts,... More
