Stayed at Kuzhupilly for two nights at the end of a two month tour of India. It was a great place to unwind. Mr and Mrs Kuruvilla were the perfect hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. And Bobby, the chef, looked after us with some fantastic Kerala cuisine.
The beach is great for a stroll, but the violent waves mean you wouldn't want to swim there. Better to take the bikes for a spin through the backwaters to Cherai town and then cut back through to Baywatch Beer Parlour at Cherai Beach for a well earned, ice cold Kingfisher.
Rooms are clean and simple. Ours had A/C, balcony, en suite.
You could find cheaper in the Kochi area but it's unlikely to be this good.More
