One of the well maintained and nice beach resorts I have come across ...
Well maintained and nice staff the Manager (Dinesh) was very friendly and kind to ask us each and every time if we were comfortable. Calm and peaceful resort. All the rooms where sea facing and the beach was kept clean and the resort also well maintained. Food service was good and the taste too. Well maintained with a motivated staff!!

My family along with my friend's family had stayed over in this resort on Aug 2013. This place is very serene with an almost clean private beach, beautiful green lawn all around the property, clean and big swimming pool etc. There are two sets of cottages - deluxe and luxury - the luxury cottage - I was told that it has an open bath room - else all cottages are sea facing. The rooms are well furnished with clean bathrooms and bedding. The property is sligtly interior along a narrow beach side road and there is all probability that you could get confused since not many local people know about this resort. Wish the resort had some guiding boards through out the road. The restaurant had great ambience with fixed break fast menu. The choice of breakfast was moderate with Bread toast as continental and one kerala dish as desi. The sea food taste should be more localized since the visitors would like more local flavour than what they taste in cities. We missed getting the fresh local coconut liquor (Toddy or Kallu ) which the resorts guys will arrange on request. The service and staff attitude were excellent and that need a special mention. The localites were also very friendly and helpful. Overall a wonderful place for a great week end holidays with / with out family. The resort also arrange boat trip on request .Improvement required on food and taste.

This place hasn't got as much publicity as it truly deserves!

It has been yet another true 'find' through tripadvisor.

Having been to a lot of beach-front properties our expectations from the word go had been pretty high. And not only did the resort meet them, it totally surpassed them.

The place is absolutely beautiful. Each cottage in the resort has breathtaking views of the palm trees and the ocean. You can hear the sea roaring right in your room. The cottages are extremely well done with french windows opening up to beach facing sitouts. The rooms are very clean, well appointed with large comfortable beds and comforters. The beach is very clean and inviting and the area leading you to the beach is well maintained and beautiful.

The swimming pool has a kids area too and is well maintained.

The dining area in itself needs a special mention. It is built next to a small wading pool that makes for a beautiful setting both during the day and when it gets dark. The food is really great with a good spread of continental and Indian fare. The staff is nice and friendly. Also worth a mention are their Ayurvedic massages priced reasonably.

Overall, a must-visit beachfront resort, priced surprisingly reasonably!

We as a family of fours stayed at the ocean front room at this resort; it was a wonderful resort and had a lot of fun at the beach and the pool. The rooms are clean and well maintained, the pool is clean and beautiful, the food was great (not so expensive) and the staff was very cooperative.
Kids had great time in the pool, beach and cycling in side the campus. The beach was pristine with not much of habitation that we could catch some crabs. Overall it was a good stay and I would recommend this place to my family and friends.
* The food can be more authentic Kerala cuisine, that will give the visitors a real taste of Kerala.

we, 5 couples have spent 1 night at malabar resort on 18th june 2013 and we really enjoyed our stay there. we booked luxury rooms which is really nice with wooden flooring, bath tub and open to sky bathroom.it is very neat and clean. We did not have to call reception for any problem because everything was prepared before we get into our rooms.

Staff: is very helpful and assertive to all the questions.
Food: we really had great veg north Indian food specially prepared for us. They have arranged candle light dinner for us without request. it's really difficult to get nice food in many resorts.

location: it's located in beautiful beach which you can see from your room itself. Even during rainy season also, we were able to play into the water. i think it will be good during season time.

If money is not a problem then i will definitely recommend to everyone this place. it's really worth also. we had serious discussion to extend our stay at malabar after having best experience.

Top class Contemporary design, luxury fittings, attention to detail, super clean and very well maintained, courteous staff, excellent Kerala food. That is Malabar Ocean Front for you..Must visit beach resort on the Kerala coast.

Special thanks to Mr. Dinesh, the general manager at the hotel for the excellent personalized above par service. I haven't seen this kind of service even at 5 star hotels around the world. Kudos.

We had a 4 day window for a holiday trip from Bangalore including driving to and fro. The kids (with teenagers and a 10 year old) wanted a beach holiday. All my husband and I wanted was to go somewhere quiet. We did the best thing possible by choosing Malabar Ocean Front Resort. It is one place that does both!
The location was out standing; the beautiful and clean beach was matched measure for measure by the lovely resort itself.
The few no of rooms make sure you get your privacy and quiet. Each room really faces the Arabian Sea. They are spic and span, spacious with a picture windows that gives you a breathtaking view. The resort is set in this beautiful well maintained garden. The pool has the perfect location which is secure and secluded at the same time.
I would like to make a special mention of the staff, including Mr. Dinesh who, starting from booking our rooms online to check out, were prompt and efficient at all times.
The food was delightful, rightly offering the local Kerala cuisine but also making delicious dishes from other cuisines as well.
We are missing the place already, and the kids are sure they want to go back there every year.
