“One of the best places to stay on Cherai beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

We stayed at the Indriya Beach Resort for 5 days in Jan 2013. The hotel, swimming pool and grounds are very clean. Everybody is really friendly the staff can`t do enough for you. The food in the restaurant is good the only trouble is, if there`s an event the service for hotels guests is very poor. The swimming pool is lovely. Around the pool are sun beds and sun shades. We love to swim in the sea but had to use the beach sun beds from the hotel next door because Indriya doesn`t provide any. The beds are very comfortable and lovely bathrooms. The wifi is a bit of a challenge. We really enjoyed our stay.

Spent 2 days with my family in this property last week. The location of the property is incredible with water lapping the walls on 2 sides. The staff has been exceptional and has accommodated our every need from time to time. Service is always with a smile and they do go out of their way to ensure you are not disappointed in any way. The decor is very warm and tastefully done. The Dining arrangements were the high points of our stay with the perfect setting as the venue followed by a nice boat ride A great place to enjoy

Very pleasant and relaxing hotel. Our room was well equipped and had a view over a small lake within the complex. There are more expensive villas which looked nice but not sure they would be worth the extra money. It is not really a beach resort in the sense that the beach is across the road and is pleasant to walk on but there are not rows of sun loungers and service. Lots of locals on the beach, very friendly and you can watch small fishing boats going out. Was the start of our break after a long weekend with friends in Qatar so we didn't really explore the neighbourhood as we just wanted r and r before starting our tour.

There is no alcohol served other than beer in the restaurant so if you like a drink in the evening bring in some duty free. Restaurant food was very good although they did have a tendency to run out of some things but the menu was extensive. Service was good except for one evening. Breakfast was excellent except last day when it was a buffet which was cold, but we asked for fresh food to be cooked and it was no problem. Biggest issue for us was that only one restaurant was open and the Malabar which had a roof top bar overlooking the sea was never open. We went to sit there in the evening but it was not quite the same. So, if you are looking for a peaceful place to recharge your batteries this is a good place to stay but there is little to do except walk and swim. All staff were very friendly.

Stayed at this resort from 18 to 21 Jan 2013. Reminded me of my stay at a beach resort in kota kina balu in malaysia.
Indriya is well maintained and has various types of rooms, cottages etc. Location is excellent with some rooms towards the backwaters and some facing the beach.
I stayed in the houseboat and the beach facing room (416). Houseboat is not recommended as there is no hot water and the water gets depleted quickly. Also as the overhead tank is not well placed the pressure in the tap/shower is miserable. I had to almost lie down on the floor to get some water in the bathshower. It is VERY cramped too.
Gym not recommended. I went to the gym on the mornings of 19 and 21 Jan. There was no attendant, AC was off and the remote as locked so I had to sweat it out literally in the small suffocating Gym.
However the beach facing room was a SHEER pleasure to stay. Great room, Great bath.
Staff is excellent. Well mannered and well trained and ready to help.
The food is out of the world. A culinary delight. I was told the Chef used to work for the Taj group earlier. Excellent meals all four days.
Swimming pool was very well kept. Mr. Madhav who is incharge of the pool works tirelessly throughout the day and is very helpful.
Beach is just opposite the resort which is a great asset.
Ms. Shibi at the front desk is amazingly efficient and helpful.
Strongly recommended for a relaxing holiday.

I have stayed here for two days and enjoyed every bit of it. The food, ambiance, the hospitality is all as they claim. Great value for money. The best part of the resort was the fish pond. Also the chief is from Taj Malabar the food is excellent.

This is a new resort, having opened in July 2012. We arrived after a long flight from the UK and were greeted by friendly efficient staff, checked in and taken to our room with ease.
We took the cookery class with the head chef and his team of 6, it was fantastic, they were so proud of their food and preparation, they showed us all aspects of the kitchen. Nothing was too much trouble. the food in the restaurants was perfect, with a mix of Kerala, North Indian, Oriental and European all on the menu. We went mainly with the Kerala food, but anything we tried was very good.
The rooms are clean and well furnished, with the all important tea making facilities.
The grounds are well kept and the pool guy runs around straightening your towel as soon as you get up.
In would highly recommend this hotel to anyone, couples or family, everything was stress free, even our 1am check-out.

Room Tip: There are some bungalows with plunge pools available, if you need that extra luxury.
