Our stay at blue mermaid was very pleasant and most of the credit goes to Indu for this.She was very warm and welcoming.She made sure that we get food according to our taste...We stayed in the cottage which gives lots of privacy and also has good view.The property is right on the beach.Amazing fish fry.

Well kept, clean with modern amenities. Delicious home cooked meals, a 2-3 minute walk to the beach. What more could a person ask for? Complete getaway if this is what you are looking for. The owners are welcoming and helpful if you need to arrange any outings or need information about the area.

Had a really relaxing stay here towards the end of our time in India. We had a room on the upper balcony which was spacious and clean. Great views out to sea. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. They arranged for us to watch a Theyyam ritual - an unforgettable experience. I also left some things at the homestay... More

I stayed here for a couple of nights in November 2015, so you’ll have to excuse my lateness in putting a review up here. I spent two weeks travelling around Kerala and Tamil Nadu and the Blue Mermaid was by far the best place we stayed. Other than the spotlessly clean and comfortable rooms, there are three main reasons for... More

We stayed at Blue Mermaid for a few nights, we slept in the cottage which had clean sheets and hot water. The cottage has a very pleasant space to read outdoors in the cool shade. The food was good and varied and the activities we did (theyyam/fort Angelo) with the autorickshaw driver they work with were worth it, especially the... More

This amazing homestay is with no doubt the best place, we stayed during our 3 weeks holiday in India! The warmhearted, lovely and very caring owner, Indu, takes care of her guests in every single way and cooks really tasty keralan food. She, her husbond and her friendly staff made sure that we felt so well and at home that... More

I stayed here with a friend for the second time in January (and the third time on Thotada beach) -- the first time was a year earlier with friends and family. It was like coming home to family. Indu and Pradeep provide a homely environment, comfortable, quiet and welcoming. And they look after you as if you're their family too.... More

Stayed here at the end of December 2015. The best Christmas I have ever had. Beautiful scenery, beautiful grounds, and beautiful people! The hospitality was amazing and if all of us human beings are connected in some way to one another and our earth, I definately felt in in this place. Great food and comfortable rooms. Thank you so much.

My daughter and I stayed at the Blue Mermaid for 4 nights in late March 2016. The owners Indu and Pradeep were very welcoming. The rooms are clean and the grounds are immaculate. The food was amazing. My daughter (who can be very picky) loved all the food that Indu prepared. We enjoyed our stay and would go back in... More

We arrived late without reservation on the 31th of December. Since they were fully booked the host helped us to find an accommodation nearby (at Golden Stand Beach House that we strongly recommend too!). Then they invited us for dinner and breakfast in their amazing garden in front of the sea. The food was excellent and the hosts so kind!... More
