“A Hidden Jewel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

The Cherai Beach Residency is perfectly situated at the far end of the busy strip of Cherai Beach, providing all the benefits of a private beach within walking distance of the crowds.

The rooms were immaculate and cleaned daily from top to bottom and the balcony views over the beach perfect for sitting back and watching the sunset.

Poly, Jessy and all the staff were fantastic and catered to our every need, providing great value, lovely food and amazing freshly made fruit juices. They were always there, yet never in a intrusive way and were more the happy to let use cater for ourselves and arrange transport around the local area.

A really down to earth, homely experience, with the all the qualities and service of a top hotel. Made to feel part of the family and the only downside was saying goodbye.

We really enjoyed our stay at Cherai Beach Residency. Location, service, food and hospitality were great. And the rabbits! The kids loved to feed them. We stayed at the topfloor and had a nice view over the beach. Very quiet and calm location. If you go there - don´t miss the spectacular view of the sunrise over backwater just about 1 km from the hotel, the opposite direction from the "center" of the beach.

Had a really pleasant time at Cherai beach residency. The welcome was warm and the food was tasty. Our hosts did a great job helping us rent bikes, organise taxi's and the stay was more or less painless. Only niggles were; beds were very hard & The wifi reception upstars was very poor (issue probably addressed by now). Recommended for value for money in the area too.

We stayed here for only one night after flying in to Cochin. We were looking for a quiet place to catch our breath before starting our family journey through Kerela.
The hotel was perfect for just that. Situated at the quiet end of the beach with a lovely sea view from our balcony and the roof terrace it was a great place to recover from a long flight.
Jessy owns the hotel and it is run by family members who are friendly and helpful in many ways from cutting us fresh coconuts on the beach to serving a wonderful home cooked meal on the roof.
The rooms are simple and spotlessly clean
We wish Jessy lots of luck with her new hotel !!!

Simply value for money. Amazing place for stay with family. Helping staff and above all the beach gave quite a nice relaxing experience. Surrounding neighborhood also added sweetness. Food was of good quality and value for money.

Staying at the Cherai Beach Residency was the best experience ever from location to room cleanliness, great Keralite food three times per day, friendliest staff and awesome owners made it a number one choice in Cherai Beach. We will recommend this resort to anyone going to Cherai Beach. Thanks for taking care of us!!

Its really worth every penny you spend here. Very newly built, each and every room is very clean and very well maintained. I loved the small balcony with Sea View. The beach is very very near the resort. Its just few feet away, especially loved the waves sound in the right, you could easily hear the beach waves sound in the night which was more romantic. Loved the dinner @ the roof top. After all, the owner of the resort is very kind person. You need not worry if you are new to Kerala, he can guide you and help you for anything. That's much appreciated. Though the food is very costly, the Sea View Room for the rent of Rs.3500 is really worth it. Highly recommended!
