Two friends and I stayed here for 10 nights this February and I can't say enough good things about this enchanting hotel. Binu. the hotel manager looked after our every need. Food was delicious: fresh vegetarian. The beach close to the resort was a real treat; sandy, warm water and very few people. We all had messages right on site...

Had a wonderful time of stay. Food was awesome. Excellent hospitality. Ideal place for a weekend trip with family and friends. The beach that is near the resort is clean and safe. A swimming in the resort would have been a complete enjoyment.

I went here with my family for 4 days and our stay was fantastic. The resort does not have fancy amenities but the beach access (100 -150 mtr walk from rooms), great homely food, and the excellent service provided by Binu and his team make's one miss nothing. The Thottada beach itself is clean and exempt of annoying hawkers or...
