We narrowed down Chera Rocks after reading reviews on TripAdvisor, and I must say, it is faaar more beautiful than it appears. The entire hotel is on the side of a small hillock which leads down to the most desolate and beautiful beach I've ever scene. The place is paradise for those seeking quiet relaxation. Our cottage was right on the beach (it was actually between two beaches that meet at ninety degrees creating quite a sight!!) and was very well kept, clean and beautiful. Of course it helped at this was a delux cottage. The other cottages are quite ordinary. Yummy homecooked meals served everyday. Freshest sea-food I've ever eaten. (The owner goes out and catches it every morning) Some very friendly and simple fisher-folk. A fresh-water spring. Dense coconut tree cover. And a very, very helpful caretaker - Mr Ali.
However, if you're into sight-seeing and shopping, this is not the place for you. It's quite far from any 'tourist' spot. But if you're the kind who likes nature & peace - go for it!
Our trip was extremely memorable and I would love to visit again!
