I heard about Cherai as an upcoming beach in Kerala and decided to check it out. Just by chance, found this new place, Cherai Beach Residency .....right at the beach side. The first floor room with private balcony has fantastic views to the beach and the sea.
It's location is perfect......only a short distance from the crowded area..... yet peaceful and quite; one can sunbathe all day undisturbed. The friendly staff gave pretty much everything that we needed .....FREE. Bench.... umbrella...towels... Watching the perfect sunset was one of the high points.
Great Kerala food...best I have ever tasted; made to order and served in the roof garden....with stunning views. There is also a small kitchen area beside the roof garden, where guests can make or heat up a light food or snack...toast, omlette etc.
Not super luxury....but offer a 3 star comfort...best value for money.
