I recently had my second stay at the Blue Mermaid and I'm pleased to say everything in my first review still holds true. The beach is beautiful and quiet, the rooms are clean and nicely fitted and the food is great. Everyone was very friendly and I'll be looking to stay there again next time I find myself in north...

This is definitely a paradise, one of the last on the increasingly more touristy Malabar coast. What makes it a paradise is the location - a nice stretch of beach, almost private, a beautiful garden, airy rooms ... - but first and foremost, the hosts, Indu and Pradeep - who really are perfect hosts!!! Indu cooks herself, though she could...

We really liked our stay here. The rooms are very nice and tidy, the beach and sea are amazing (we swam a lot). Food is lovely, so are the guests. There are only a few rooms, so the atmosphere is quiet and relaxing.

Came by myself for this trip and stayed in the cottage as I normally do. Indu & Pradeep were wonderful hosts and although on my own they made me feel so comfortable. The food was as good as ever, all home cooked with fresh vegetables and fish from the local market. Meal times are set (breakfast 8.30 am and dinner...

Very quiet location at the very end of the narrow road to Thottada Beach, with delightful gardens, and clean modern accommodation, within well-designed building that blends in with the palms. The food is fine, which is just as well because there are no other facilities nearby. The beach is safe and empty, a long stretch of sand, backed with palms,...

What I will remember most is the location on the beach which has not been developed as yet so no shacks or sunloungers and at the most we saw 20 people on a perfect sandy beach. The house is clean, well maintained garden with hammocks and our corner room was cool with 3 windows with screens and a fan. The...

We got there planning to stay 2 nights... then 3... then 4... and in the end stayed 6 nights in this little paradise. Indu and Pradeep are excellent hosts. What can I say? The food is delicious, everybody is charming, everything gets simple. Whatever you (reasonable) need, you can ask and they will find a solution. We'll be back!

I can't believe places like the blue mermaid exist in India. We had been travelling around for a few weeks, feeling a bit tired and weary and like we'd been fleeced one too many times, and then we found this place. It was everything we wanted: mainly and most importantly, the hosts are phenomenal. Indu and her husband Pradeep are...

Lovely hosts, wonderful place, fantastic beach. Indu and Pradeep made our experience feel like Heaven on Earth. Only a grumpy cinic could dislike a stay at Blue Mermaid... If only they would serve real Kerala coffee, it would be perfect.

Blue Mermaid was definitely the most relaxing time we had in India. Rare perfect combination of clean rooms, great food and extraordinarily attentive hosts without being too much. After I left Indu even sent me my phone which got stuck in customs. Can't recommend enough,
