“What A Trip!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

This is not one of the best places to stay... But THE BEST place to stay while in Cherai! With its pristine beaches, amazing accommodation, excellent food that Matrin cooks, and to top it all, Polly & Jessy who are absolutely amazing hosts. What more can you ask for? We stayed here for 4 days to spend New Years this year, and man what a stay it was. Pls ensure that you carry the best photography gear while you get here coz this is one trip you would never want to forget. The rooms are very clean, and get cleaned every morning with fresh linen and replenishment of toiletries. The food is as close as it can get to being just perfect. I recommend that everyone visiting Cherai, must stay at this home away from home.

Room Tip: Pick the rooms on the first floor. They give you amazing views of the ocean.

A great place to relax and enjoy swimming and lazing on a beach. The owners Poly and Jesse are a lovely couple who are very helpful and kind and they have great staff who are very attentive. The bedrooms are very clean, they are basic 'beach chalet' style, and that's fine because what more do you need when surrounded by all that lovely sand and sea? The beds are clean and comfortable, little fridges to keep drinks cool, the air on is very good and runs very quietly, the bathrooms are very good and modern with lots of hot water. There are little balconies with 2 seats and a table where you can watch the sun go down. There is a roof top patio and we ate up there every evening. The food is very tasty, a simple choice but all cooked fresh, we were there for 6 days and enjoyed all of our meals. The breakfast was also varied, and the fruit juices freshly 'juiced' every morning. The situation is good because it is away from the busier area of the beach, about 1 km away, so it is more peaceful. We took a boat trip organised by Poly for us, which was brilliant.
All in all a good experience which we'd happily repeat.

Room Tip: Choose the balcony rooms, 206 has a good view.

The resort small, lonely n very nice. Rooms were clean and well maintained. Food was hygienic and tasty and servants were very kind. Stay includes complementary breakfast. Booking in advance is recommended since capacity is less. It reserves 5 star rating. Thanks to trip advisor through which I came to know about the resort.

Thanks to other TripAdvisor reviews we chose this place. It is exactly what the reviews talk about. Cosy, Value for Money, On the beach, with a sea view. Nice friendly Staff. Jesse and Poly available are friendly and care for the guests as one will for personal guests at home. Special words for the cook and the help. Food is really good and their smile makes you feel home.
All amenities of a large resort, but very very personal touch.
Another tip - hire a scooty for local travel and sight seeing. There are god no of places nearby.

Room Tip: Chose last room on first floor. Has a clear view of the Sea / Beach.

This is one of the places I would like to come back to...
The hotel owners are very welcoming and friendly and they do care about their guests. The hotel is very clean, has modern facilities... and yet it has this very cosy family-like atmosphere with very attentive service and just a good advice if one needs it. Together with a great location - just outside of all the hassle of the busy junction - with a quiet beach, for me personally, this was an ideal choice! And I did look around while in Cherai... for the good two weeks... Yet, would love to come back to this place if I travel again to India!
Thanks Polly & Jessy! (the owners)

Room Tip: Ask for a bike - it's a great place for cycling... And of course, a top floor room with a view...

I stayed at the place for 4 days in January 2014. The Manager Mr Poly and his wife Jessy were helpful & cooperative. A little away from the noisy area, the beach in front is clean and uncluttered. You could spend a few days in solitude, away from the noises of New Delhi. It provided an excellent base for our trips to places of interest.

Room Tip: Always better to choose the 1st floor rooms with your private balcony
