Excellent service, Very spacious rooms, Fresh food. Great view. Resort is very well located no boundaries between resort and ocean,.Initial plan was to spend 1 day at resort. However the location and service made us extend our stay for 2 days.

Excellent Property. Truely is the same as it reflects in the pictures. Spacious rooms having excellent quality fixtures. Amazing location right on the beach and also having a decent sized well maintained swimming pool. Picture perfect restaurant serving freshly cooked food. Our vacation would not had been so pleasant but for the hospitality of the staff and their availability for any kind of help. This is THE PLACE to go and get pampered!

I came across the website of this property while searching for a place for a 3 days' stay. Did not think further and booked since it was holiday season. But to our surprise whatever was shown in the website was something which really was... !
Managed and run by a group of very hospitable folks.
Beautiful place and very tasty food is what u get.

had a memorable stay at the malabar ocean from the resort.it was fantastic from the word go.the booking process was smooth and professional and response quick.once in the resort,we were trasported to a different world.it is well laid out and has charming beach view cottages.the cottages are well designed (blend of traditional and modern) with exotic open to sky bathrooms.
the talking point is the men behind this resort.the service is impeccable and the staff adorable without being obtrusive.the food is absolutely home-like and sea food dishes a treat.mr dinesh kumar and his team are a hands-on team invollved in the nitty gritty of everything.i complement all of them for pampering us so much and wish them all the best and pray for their good health.dr farzan deshmukh and family

Room Tip: just book the beach facing cottages

We stayed at the resort thanks to the timely suggestion by a colleague-god bless him!!!
The resort itself has a wonderfully serene ambience with greenery all around and the ever present sound of the sea soothing you.
Its sea facing cottages are wonderfully practical with all amenities one would want and perhaps the most ecofriendly and user friendly bathroom we have seen.For once,one did not need to worry about spoiling the room after a romp in the sea!And the icing was the open to sky shower...wonderful touch!
The beach is one of the cleanest and quietest we have been to-most of the times we were the only occupants!!!And the beach is literally 100 fet from your doorstep...cant ask for more.
One can walk for atleast 1.5 to 2 km on either side without fear of disturbance or crowds or filth/litter-very unusual for our beaches.
The pool is also the perfect place to chill after a strenuous day at the beach!
The restaurent has a limited menu which definitely needs to be upgraded while the price of the food definitely needs a downgrading!Having said that the chef dished out some very tasty basic dishes so no complaints on the taste of the food!
The staff is very courteus and friendly,ever willing to provide a helping hand.In particulr worth mentioning are Mahesh the restaurent manager and Rahul and Shibjit.Mr Dinesh,the Manager is also extremely helpful.
All in all,its definitely a place to go to and most definitely a place we will be returning to!!!

Room Tip: The Sea facing rooms/cottages are the best....
