A wonderful place with a very nice and friendly staff!! Every room is different and the interior design is done with a lot of taste. Also the food is excellent there. If you do t know that place it's hard to find if just passing by.It a real paradise!

Fantastic place to relax at the end of our month in India. Had a wonderful stay in cottage 1 (which has the best views of the backwaters, and air conditioning - worth the extra money) and took advantage of everything on offer - great food, massage, early morning yoga and meditation, dips in the Arabian Sea and walks along the sand. Bliss.

I can not do this place justice with words... we stayed in cottage 10 for our first night which was stunning and moved to cottage 1 for the rest of our stay. cottage 1 has an amazing view of the backwaters and fisherman. i stayed here with my mum, but would also suit solo travellers, couples & "girlie holidays". the whole resort feels relaxing and extremely welcoming. i was a little worried that the resort would not be as pictured on the website but it exceeded my expectations. everyone that works there gives 150% effort and care towards making you feel special and looked after. the food is delicious and the coffee was fantastic. i was really sad to have to leave and want to go back to visit soon. the whole team made my stay in kochi unforgettable... thank you to them and i hope this place never loses its relaxed and warm charm.

Room Tip: i fell in love with cottage 1, it has a/c and fans. the view is amazing and the terrace is so peacef...

Les 3 elephants is beautifully located between clean and quite backwaters and a peacefull, beautiful and clean beach. Have lived in India for more than one year now, and this is clearly a place I would recommend - biking, swimming, boating, eating, massaging and many more possibilities are available.

We were there for 3 nights during mid october for my Wife's b'day and the staff really made it a memorable and special b'day for us!
Special thanks to the house keeping staff who wonderfully decorated our room while we were having breakfast to give a surprise to my non-suspecting wife. Special thanks also to Tibu who baked a cake on my request for my wife and kept it ready by 11.50 pm so that i could collect it just in time! :)

The beach is within 5 mins walk from the resort and is very quiet.. ideal for an sunset walk or an early morning jog.. The resort can also arrange tuk-tuks or cabs for places to see around. Even before we visited the resort we got a reply on mail to our query of places to see around.. We went to Fort Kochi (45 mins by tuk-tuk and 5 mins by ferry after that) one day and to Athirampally water falls onthe other (1.5 hrs drive in a cab)

It was hot during the day.. but was pleasant during the night as it kept raining from 7.30 pm till almost mid-night everyday.. but we used to be back to the room after a tiring day. so it was perfect. In terms of food, there are not many options for vegetarians. This could be an issue. Also there could be ants in your room if you leave any food unattended even for 15 mins..

Other than that it was a thoroughly memorable trip.. I also have to mention Sudhir and Harish, who took care of the arrangements and requests :) and also to Sudhir's wife who helped us find a shop to get good sarees.

Would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to get away from the maddening cities..

Room Tip: If you are a couple on your honeymoon.. or honeymoon like trip.. then you must choose the cottages a...

We just had to share with you how fabulous our stay was as Les 3 Elephants. We stayed there for 4 nights in October on our way down to Kovalam and enjoyed every minute of our stay. We had bungalow number 1 which was amazing and had such beautiful views. We could site on our veranda and have a light breakfast of filter coffee and homemade bread, made by Mredula, and watch the sunrise. Unbelieavable. If ever you wanted to go somewhere to totally unwind this is the place. A big thanks to all the staff, especially Amitha and her husband, who even arranged a Royle Enfield for us to hire for the day, which made my husband to be a very happy bunny.! Everything about our stay was magical and we will definitely return.
