Beautifully kept hotel, almost like a homestay. Shibu is a perfect host, he recommended a place to get our hair cut as well as the more traditional shopping options! The room was very spacious and the balcony delightful. The southern end of the beach is a flat 3 minute walk from the hotel. The restaurant on site served wonderful Keralan...

In the same building is also a good ayurvedic doctor and a small restaurant, which was very...

Stumbled upon this place after a 3 hour search around North cliff and black beach for a good place to stay at reasonable prices. It was 1 of the last places I enquired in and I'm glad I did. My girlfriend and I stayed here for 9 nights instead of 2 or 3. She had fractured her ankles before we...

It had various facilities which I can't fault. During my stay yoga classes were going on, on the roof top which was fabulous. After a...

“We chose a larger A/C room for our one night stay and were not disappointed. The room included a nice living area, large bedroom, and comfortable balcony we made use of use. The smaller non A/C rooms were a little spartan, but clean and a great value, and we would have no problem staying in them next time.”
