We went there for our anniversary. I called them before I booked and felt comfortable about the place speaking to the Manager. After 2 bad experiences before I needed to be very sure.

It was easy to find the place, fairly well sign posted. A nice hospitable team greeted us and made us feel at home. We were allocated one of the sea facing cottages. When we got there.. the first words my wife said were.. Oh my god this is fabulous. Nice big comfortable room with a perfect view of the beach and a sit out to sit and enjoy this view. The bathroom was no expenses spared too...

We were given the menu and promised everything is freshly prepared.. and it was. Each meal better than the other. They organised a very nice candle light diner for us. The staff ensured everything was perfect. I expected a whopping big bill, they let me down here. The bill was way cheaper than I expected. Special thanks to Rahul (waiter) and Mahesh (his Manager) for going the extra mile for everything we needed. We will definitely be going back the next year..

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
