Must say, it was one of the best experiences in a long while. Besides the location, which is absolutely spectacular, the staff especially led by Mr Sunil, who takes personal care and gives personal attention...

Along with our friends and family, we spent two lovely days at the Malabar beach resort, Thottada, Kannur. The rooms are clean, neat and are complemented well by the serene verdant surroundings. The beach is a quiet stroll away...providing the perfect holiday mantra of sun, sand n sea. The USP of the resort is the owner Mr Sunil, who took...

The manager will take your choice of food from his standard menu and serve it under a canopy in front of your room. The good point about this resort is the beach is only a few yards across the...

What an amazing experience! I went with a group of students and we had the place to ourselves. The grounds are gorgeous and meticulously mantained. When we stayed, the rooms and bathrooms were newly updated with more renovations on the way. The location is within a two minute walk from the Arabian Sea with its own private area. We spent...

Visited the resort with a school group this summer. We were welcomed and treated like royalty. It was a home away from home. Amazing experience. I would highly recommend. (The beach is beautiful. We spent most of the time relaxing and reading by the water.)
