We can only recommend a stay in this beautiful resort. Awesome place with nice bungalows. Everything is clean, housekeeping is perfect and you have to to go to reception and beg for new towels as this happens frequently to us in India. We enjoyed this lonesome place for relaxing. No noise except nature, no horns no cars, only birds, waves etc....
We had a stay for 9 days and were sad to depart again. We will come again as soon as possible.

I did a lot of research and was glad I chose this place. We had a wonderful time. Prakash and the rest of the team did everything to make our holiday as enjoyable as possible; nothing was too much trouble for them, not even our 3am checkout and transfer to Kozhikode airport. The cottage was lovely with a great outside deck for watching the sunset over the sea, and the stars at night. The beach, food, weather and everything else was fantastic, and I'd recommend it to anyone who wants a relaxing holiday in great surroundings. There are also lots of interesting things to do in the local area.

We were a group of 4 families who stayed in the resort between 12th Oct to 16th Oct and we enjoyed every moment of it. Prakash and his team are great at their job.

The scale of operations in the Kitchen needs to be improved so that service can be quicker and there are no shortages of food during the buffet.

The facility at the Spa needs to be improved a lot for the money that is being charged.

I had read reviews of this resort and then booked for a cottage for myself, wife, 8 year old son and parents in August.

Since we were travelling from Mangalore and it was in the peak monsoons we decided to take the train from Mangalore to Nileshwar which is just over an hour's journey. We took the Ernad Express at the crack of dawn and reached Nileshwar. The Resort had sent their complementary pickup , a comfortable Toyota Innova. The drive from the station to the resort is a short one and while we reached the resort much before check in time, they were kind enough to give us an early check in.

The walk from the reception to the cottage was quite a long one through abundant lush greenery. It did require some effort for my parents to reach the cottage. The cottage was splendid to say the least, the drawing cum dining room was spacious and tastefully done up. The view was that of the sea with the palm trees. 2 of the 3 bedrooms gave a view of the sea from the bed. Need we ask for more.?

The beds were comfortable, there was a nice kitchen with some basic cutlery and also walk in closet for the master bedroom. After settling down we walked to the restaurant and had the breakfast. The breakfast spread is limited and includes some fruits, cereals, bread/toasts and eggs, tea and coffee. Nothing extraordinary but satisfactory. We would have loved to see some more variety. The kitchen is geared to handle a small number of people and we had to wait for sometime before we got whatever we ordered. We ordered for the lunch in advance. The lunch was traditional and we enjoyed it. The evening was spent walking around the beach and a nice dip in the pool with my son. This resort is for people who enjoy solitude, peace and not the ones who want action.

While we wanted to stay for 2 nights, we had to check out the next morning as my father had a bad fall. The resort called for a doctor who came promptly, however we were concerned and decided to check out within an hour of the fall. The staff was very helpful and understanding and organised for a wheelchair to take him to the car. We drove back to Mangalore in the same car which took us over 2 hours with the usual pot hole roads.

I certainly recommend this resort for a nice, peaceful holiday. Go there with a book, with family and friends, chat, walk by the sea and enjoy the pristine nature. The staff was so good that I got a call the next day from the resort about the health of my father and that was really touching. The only reason why I have held back from rating this resort excellent is the food which to me is one of the high points of my holiday else, the resort and hospitality is fabulous...

What more can i add to all the reviews that has already been given? It is as perfect as everybody is saying and some more! The beautiful and spacious cottages, the perfect location - right next the sea with sea view from all the cottages, the coconut trees, the hammocks, the flowers ... - and above all the most wonderful staff that I have ever come across, makes your stay there memorable and worth every penny. The staff there goes out of their way to make you feel welcome and comfortable. Food was delicious although a bit overpriced with small portions. Highly recommended!

Its as good as everybody is saying. I really appreciated the comfortable clean room after some hard traveling in India. The staff was very helpful and when I wanted to see a local Theyyam ceremony a hotel staff found out when it would happen and someone from the hotel escorted me to the village temple. I really appreciated the quiet room and the quiet air conditioner that didn't have to be turned up to MAX for cooling the room.

As good as everything was, the only flaw was the breakfast. In this price range it should have been better. Just some tired corn flakes and an uninspired omelet. The dinners were fine. Despite the breakfast I will still grant 5 stars
