Beautiful and cozy property right at the backwater. You get to see the chinese fishing nets and the fishermen in the boats right while sipping your cup of tea. Rooms are boutique and thoughtfully equipped. And the best part about the stay is the amazing food, they have limited menu but whatever it is, its lip smacking yummy, do get...

This is a very tastefully designed property with beautiful lawns connecting cosy little cottages. The cottages aren't very big, the beds are at most queen size ones. Also, excellent service & good food.

Very near to the sprawling Cherai beach running into kilometers, facing back waters is this resort run by French Couple Benjamin and his wife. The resort is most visited by French people as they get French food here. A well run resort that can be safely occupied

The way in which it...
