We stayed in a doctors villa for 4 days. This is a well maintained property with beach on one side and the backwater on the other side. The beach is just across the road and is very clean and ideal for swimming. It gets crowded on sundays but on weekdays it is very peacefull and the entire beach is for the resort occupants. They provide beach benches, umbrella and towels. The restaurant in the resort provides excellent tasty food at an affordable price. When compared to other restaurants on cherai beach, the quality, cleanliness and price is very good.
One disadvantage is their buffet. If the resort occupancy is more, then they only offer buffet and no ala carte. If you want to have a light dinner in the night, then you need to choose the items in the buffet and they will charge as per that, which is not suitable. They are renovating the reception , once it is done, it will be more beautiful. One thing that is missing in this resort is the swimming pool and childrens play area. They should plan this at the earliest to make it complete. If you like beach and nice food, then you should book this resort. The resort is around 25 kms from cochin city.

Room Tip: always go for a AC villa. Even in winter, it is quite hot in cochin.

My boyfriend and I stayed here during our 2 week trip to India and the Cherai Beach Resort was a welcome calm and opportunity to relax after the mayhem of Delhi.

The staff were friendly, courtious and welcoming. The room was clean and spacious and bright, we stayed in a garden villa which was top notch!

We would like to highlight that the food in the restaurant was some of the best we had in Kerala. Fort Kochi wasn't a million miles away and we did a day trip by taking a rickshaw into Cherai town (5 mins), then the communter bus to Vypin ferry port (20 mins) and took the ferry across to Fort Kochi (5 mins).

The beach is lovely and generally quiet with no one hasssling you and the resort provides, towels, sunbeds and umbrellas.

The spa is also excellent but be aware that a luxury tax plus service tax is added to the cost of all treatments. We would recommend checking the full price of all treatments inclusive of all tax before you book one.

Highly recommend this place for families and couples.

We had a very nice experience here. We stayed in Sunrise villa which has backwater facing balcony and open to sky bathroom. They arranged beach benches and towels. Beach was neat and less crowded. Could have spent more days there. Perfect for couples.

This was the place i had been waiting to get in AEAP.. It stood on my expectations. It was a very memorable moment when i first entered there. It was just like a dream vacation come true. I had a very nice time here. Every moment spent here would be memorable. Opposite to this resort is Cherai Beach (a very beautiful and calm beach) and behind Backwaters. What more, this property itself has an island-type look to it with green water full of fishes and loads of greenery. They have a restaurant in there, which is well maintained. Food here is good. Cant forget d breakfast, which was buffet system and was complimentary for us. Overall, my day spent there was very relaxed, happy, n contenting. Looking forward to visit again. I would suggest all travelers visiting Kerala to spend at least a day here. Its very relaxing.

My wife and I made a reservation for a room at the resort through a travel agent. The room was confirmed as booked for us by both the hotel and agent. However, when we arrived to the hotel after a 4 hour drive, we found out that this was cancelled at the very last minute due to the MD’s son’s wedding and priority was given to the wedding guests. This is by far the most ridiculous reason we have encountered. As a foreign tourist to India, this gives us a bad impression of Cherai Beach Resort in comparison to other hotels locally and around the world, because it appears that they are not operating a business but something that they can open and close at their own will.

The staff at the reception desk advised us that the room was not in fact booked under our name/agent’s, and blamed the travel agent for not confirming the booking when he was advised of the function being held on the same day. We were surprised and quickly contacted the agent questioning him of this at the hotel, and he told us that only the room type was changed and no cancellations were made by him. Cherai Beach Resort handled the situation very poorly and we were disgusted by the way the staff treated us. They did not have the courtesy to offer water or drink and directed us to a toilet that was dirty and still under construction.

The hotel is advertised as a 3.5 star but the service and hospitality we encountered was certainly not up to the 3-3.5 star rating and using the MD’s son’s wedding as an reason to refuse guests is utterly ridiculous. People travel far and pay money to come and enjoy what the hotel boast themselves over, however failed to deliver when their booking system and communication systems failed. In this day and age, we believe that this is not acceptable.

(Disappointed, we had to make the 4 hour trip back to the city and book another hotel room!)
