My boyfriend and I had a very relaxed stay here. The hosts prepare all the breakfasts and dinners on-site and they are all varied and delicious. Our room was absolutely lovely, and they took care of us despite having no booking in advance and arriving late in the evening. The beach is on your doorstep and it was great to...

I stayed here with my wife and two brothers for two days and we had a really good and relaxing time. The host was incredibly friendly, made really good food - especially the breakfasts, maybe the best we have had so far in India (and we have been here for two months). The location was something special, an almost private...

Easily the best place to stay on Thottada Beach, with palm-fringed silver sand beach & warm Arabian Sea a few metres away. Indu & Pradeep are very welcoming and the reasonably-priced package includes breakfast & evening meals. Kingfisher beer can also be obtained! Great place to chill, lovely backwaters and good birdwatching a bonus. Nigel & Fabienne, Feb 2015

In the 11 weeks we were in India this was one of the best places that we stayed at. There were three of us, so we had two non A/C rooms on the ground floor and even though the weather was extremely hot they were cool and comfortable. Both rooms were clean and well maintained. We were not bothered by...

We found this place by accident and could have stayed forever! The beach was beautiful and swimming was great fun, the garden was lovely and our room was perfect, but it was the home cooking that stole the show, the food was delicious, I went for thirds on every meal!! We felt totally comfortable and met all the family, with...

We planned to stay for 3 days but extended to our max possible of 5 because we immediately felt sure we would have exactly the kind of stay we were looking for - really peaceful, relaxing, harmonious in beautiful surroundings. Most important of all, our hosts Indo and Pradeep are whole-heartedly keen to make you feel good, at home, and...

This place is beautifully located at a clean beach with perfect swimming water! Surrounded by palm trees and a perfect garden including hammocks. Rooms are clean and spacious. Best of all is the staff, nothing is too much and the home cooked food is delicious. We had a great time!

The Blue Mermaid epitomises the idea of 'getting away from it all' Next to the beach with gorgeous views of coconut palms, our rooms were clean and spacious. Our hosts looked after us extremely well, organising any transport we needed and providing breakfast and dinner of the most amazing array of home cooked Keralan food. The staff were really lovely...

Myself and my husband stayed here in November during our honeymoon trip around India. We weren't meant to stay here, it was an accidental find but it was brilliant. It was a really quiet location, practically on the beach. The beach itself is really peaceful and very different to the rest of Kerala - non touristy and the best sunsets...
