Reviewed March 25, 2013

Ended up here by mistake, but what a brilliant mistake. We had the pool completly for ourselves for four days. Wonderful view from the pool, overlooking the backwaters. The staff was very friendly and helpful, helped us with tuk-tuks and taxis as well as serving us by the pool. The room was excellent, the bed were among the best we ever slept in. The AC worked like a dream, the chill came from several sprots not just the usual one place. The fresh fruit delivered to our room every day was super. Spotless cleaning.

A visit to the Cherai beach was a last-minute decision, but probably one of the best during my 10-day long visit to Kerala. We found Blue Waters to be a wonderful way to sign off from God's Own Country. The room was spacious and clean, and the special spa shower (though, it did take a bit getting used to) was a source of much fun! The staff was extremely helpful and pleasant, and the restaurant food was excellent.
The backyard and pool opens up to beautiful backwaters, which provides for a calming and peaceful experience, especially during the evenings. Although I did not try the spa here, but the fellow guests spoke very highly of their experiences.

After reading mixed reviews I took the risk and booked 3 night stays here and I would say I am really impressed. I would judge any place by seeing its toilets first and trust me this is a well kept place with good and clean bathroom and toilet. Ours was a backwaters facing room and nothing could be more refreshing than such a spectacular view of the water while you enjoy your stay. The staff was great and helpful by all means. Food in restaurant is kinda costly but its kinda good. Only thing which I found a bit problematic was its distance from city, if you have your cab along you or you have your own car its good but if you are gonna book a cab for each of your trip then it is heavy on the pocket. But hey..they do have the rickshaws too available on the beach road and they are cheap.
I spent the first 3 days of our honeymoon here and i can say..money well spent. I wish to be there again soon.

Room Tip: Take the Backwaters facing room. Its serene.

We stayed in this place for one day/night in Jan-13.
The location of this place is across the road from beach. So its not exactly a beach resort in the sense you cant walk into beach from your room. However its 2 minutes away. Rooms and place are clean and well maintained. From anti skid tiles at required places and several other safety measures in place it seemed like these guys knew their business. Staff, courteous. Rooms are spacious, clean and bathrooms have super showers and 24 hr hot water. Restaurant and food not bad at all.
Swimming pool in the back side is decent with a great view of backwaters. But water seemed so much chlorinated that it tasted bitter and my friend and myself could not open our eyes inside water at all. Pool side service was good, there was a good supply for fresh pool towels.
There are ayurvedic treatments available but we didnt avail any.
So coming back to location, I should say I was disappointed going in expecting a typical beach resort. The beach too is not the best with huge crowds on sunday evenings and hence gets little dirty. Its better to spend time there before late evenings because of crowds. However the hotel made up for some of my disappointment with good facilities.
Food for vegetarians will be very expensive because you pay the same price and get much lesser variety. A lunch buffet costed 460 with taxes. Complementary breakfast was good. Staff in restaurant were good but some junior ones needed grooming. A curt NO TOAST was the reply I got when asked for toasting bread. However a senior person obliged happily.
Over all, I would say this is a good place to stay if you are just looking for a good place to stay because then beach would come as bonus. But if you want to go there for beach I am sure there are much better choices.

Room Tip: If you can afford take the suites 111,222,333 in first floor with large balconies. Other rooms in fi...

Had a great stay at this hotel. The rooms all have balconies and ours faced right onto the beach. There is a/c, TV, and the bathrooms are very well-equipped and have super showers with plenty of hot water. The swimming pool is at the back of the hotel and from there you have a beautiful view of the backwaters. My only teeny complaint is that there aren't enough sunloungers and umbrellas by the pool.
Breakfast is included and mainly consists of Indian dishes, all of which were delicious.
All the staff are so so nice, especially David on reception.
There isn't a great deal to do on Cherai Beach apart from chill-out and just relax. Our 2 nights just flew by and I was sad to leave.

The hotel is right on the beach front and also has a reasonable sized pool to the rear which looks out onto the back waters. There are only 4 sunbeds however.
Breakfast came included and was usual Indian breakfast dishes. All buffet style. Very tasty.
We have a front seaview room with balcony which is a little tired and could do with a paint job but has aircon, TV, safe and a very impressive shower with 5 shower heads!!
David on the reception was very attentive and helpful.
