A large group of us visited and had a wonderful time. The owners were extremely accommodating, went above and beyond in their service to us - very gracious. The food they cooked for us was wonderful and they modified it for our American taste buds. It was also beautiful grounds, and just a few steps to the beach.

We had come from a rough place and needed comfort and got it. Very well run, excellent customer service and friendly. Swimming morning (calm) and evening (rough) and yoga on the beach with the birds crabs and local lads playing beach football. Rickshaw driver went down the wrong road so get Indoo or Pradeep to talk to driver on phone...

It was a heavenly feeling sitting and relaxing in the sit out area, enjoying the...

The best view on Thottada Beach. Visit now before the new airport is built at Kannur and destroys the tranquility. Excellent location right next to the beach, with stunning views. So nice to have the gentle sea breezes in the afternoon and not be plagued by mosquitos at night. Clean and comfortable rooms, excellent food and charming and obliging hosts...

We stayed 5 nights and Indu and family were totally welcoming and really helpful. It's just off the beach which is clean and pretty deserted. The homecooking food was really outstanding. The rooms were clean and well looked after. We started with AC but did not need it. The grounds/gardens very peaceful. All in all a perfect place to relax....

We stayed at the Blue Mermaid for four restful days, and could have easily stayed longer. Indu and Pradeep are wonderful hosts, so friendly and caring. We loved staying in the Honeymoon Cottage overlooking the lagoon we saw so many eagles, egrets and a few kingfishers too! The beach is gorgeous and pretty much deserted. The food was incredible.

We had four wonderful days at this lovely place. The food was the best, during our stay we had a variety of Keralan dishes and they all tasted great. The sea was a bit rough for our 4-year old, otherwise I think we would have stayed longer. The location is great and the hosts are great to give you information...

My husband and I stayed at Blue Mermaid for 3 nights and it was really relaxing and peaceful. The family who runs this place take lots of pride in ensuring that their guests are happy and comfortable. They helped us arrange Ayruvedic massages and a visit to a Theyyam. We arrived at 10pm the first evening, and they were kind...
