Tinged with the blush of sun, sand and blue sky merging with blue water to provide a spectacular view is the germ green island which houses “OYSTER OPERA” a theme village in northern part of Kerala, God’s own country. At this sanctuary of natural beauty comprised of mangrove, palm fringed islands and coastal stretches caressed by back waters, Oyster Opera promises unique care and comfort on the country side. The resort is noted not only for its attention to detail and trained hospitable staff but also various other experiences on the brackish waters away from urbanity. It will be an unforgettable experience while enjoying a deep sense of serenity and contemplating the majesty of nature.

First the positive aspects. We went for a day trip with a group of nine persons. The tariff of about Rs.1300 per person for a day trip is very cheap. The highlight of the trip is canoeing and a trip to backwaters where we all could get in to the backwaters and enjoy, including swimming. The depth at this place in the backwaters is only about three to four feet. So, those who did not know swimming also could get into the backwaters and enjoy. They served a fabulous lunch with a variety of fresh sea food. Along with the evening tea they served an awesome pazham pori (A sweet snack made out of ripe banana). The staff was polite and cordial. The guy manning the reception-cum-accounts can become a bit more cordial with the customers. Now the negatives. We were allotted a villa for resting and changing the dress. The washroom needs lot of improvement there. The washbasin looked dirty and ugly. The hot water pipe was not functioning.

"Jst fr the knowledge of people who visit this place, back water is salty..." More Reviews People often mention All Property Food Service Family Nature Fitness Breakfast Atmosphere Location + 9 more Most helpful HARITHA R.J1/57 minutes ago on  Google I will give 1star only because of its location.. Otherwise their customer service is really pathetic. I stayed here with my husband for his b'day and ordered a cake for him. The way they delivered the cake from their kitchen is shown below.. when we complained about the issue to the management they ran away from their responsibility nicely.. If you're planning to stay here for special occasions, kindly avoid this place. I feel sad because of its highly inflated price I've given to this resort and getting the worst customer service and average room with below average facilities (I've booked an Ac room for nearly 10000rs ). Also the fact the AC got complained. When it comes to their dinner they told us to come there at 8pm.Altmost waited more than one hour to get their buffet.. Their staff really don't know how to deal properly with the customers. They don't have any co-ordination. We stayed at this place because of highly rated Google ratings. Feel regretted because of the money which we wasted here..

I visited Oyster Opera with a group of friends recently and we were so impressed by the fantastic hospitality we received. Vijay and the team organised activities (such as swimming in backwaters and boat trips to nearby beaches) and transport at our request and tailored dietary needs to the exceptional all-inclusive food service, enjoyed at the resort. The chef presented local dishes to us and lunch was served on a banana leaf. We enjoyed BBQs for dinner, including fresh fish, that we watched being caught that day at the resort itself. I unfortunately got into a scooter accident whilst I was there and was overwhelmed by the kindness of staff at the resort in sourcing the medical attention I needed and even coming to the hospital with me to make sure any local language could be translated and that I was comfortable with treatment. They continually checked up with me in the coming days and made me feel very at ease. Above and beyond what I could have ever anticipated. Would highly recommend!

A fabulous visit to Oyster Opera. The location is in a beautiful setting, with all rooms directly on the backwaters. It is excellent value for money, with all food and activities included. We had a couple of trips to the beach on the outer island, and a visit to a swimming spot in the backwaters. The food was excellent for every meal, and plenty of it! The seafood was very fresh and they gave us options every dinner. What really made this place was the people - the staff were FANTASTIC. All very welcoming and warm, and couldn’t do enough for you. We needed some assistance with a doctor one day, and they came with us to the clinic and helped translate for us, and wouldn’t leave until we were sorted. They consistently went above and beyond, all were great, but a special shout-out to Vijay who really made sure we had everything we needed. A big thank you, and I will definitely be back!

Where to start… what a stay at Oyster! hands down sone of the best service have experienced not just in India, but the world! the team couldn’t be more helpful and go out of their way to make our stay comfortable. Even getting a friend to a doctor when needed. Resort is great too among palm trees by backwaters. Great area for Theyyam (highly recommend!) lots of beaches and a village nearby to get any supplies you need. They even have their own rain shower! be ready to dance ! The food was excellent with very sizeable portions - all fresh and local. Really can’t fault at all. My only improvement would be some sections could do with a bit of a refurb/refresh to make more modern, but it was hardly something that I’d criticise. thanks to the team for a brilliant stay. We will be back!

Had been there for a night with family during the last days of December 2020. Though we are from Kerala we truly loved the beautiful aspect this resort had of the beautiful state . The owner and son are always there to personally welcome the guests and make sure they are felt at home. The food is exemplary . They feed you out of sincere love and affection . Had a wonderful stay . Just that the rooms need a lil maintenance . Otherwise this is truly like home in between a small paradise.

Service: Is the highlight of this resort. Gul and his team personal attention of the customers. Food: Resort provide breakfast buffet, Kerala lunch thali, barbeque with dinner buffet. Taste of the food is good. Kerala unique dishes are worth trying. We are vegetarians, at most care was taken for our food and enough verities were provided. Location: This resort has a unique geographic location. Between two streams of back waters and nearby beach. Cool breeze all day through. Back waters give a calming experience. Activities: A back water boat ride to nearby beach [Beach is clean]. Back water swimming/ play for family. This is unique. You get into the water your waist highlight allowing family to enjoy cool water in flowing water. Boat ride in resort small pond. These keep family occupied. Accommodation: We stayed in first floor bamboo house. It was rustic but unique experience.

If you are a water lover and if you are into non vegetarian kerala food, then this is the place to be. It has kerala style cottages which are well appointed. Greenery and water all around, go there to just de-stress and enjoy. We were 7 adults and 5 kids age ranging from 6 to 11. The owner and his son are available most of the time at the property and they ensure you get everything. Everything is homely and informal and you feel really comfortable very quickly. Kayaking, paddle boating, boat trips to backwaters and beaches, swimming in backwaters in shallow areas (watch out for jelly fish!) rain dance and a 24 hours open swimming pool is available. The lunch is served on banana leaf and dinner is barbeque style with buffet and live music under the trees. Spread is good and they overfeed you especially during lunch. You can get "kallu", the local liquor also on request, apart from other usual drinks. Kids play area, indoor games, volleyball/badminton court, cricket, foot ball equipment are available. Mobile phone reception is also good. Cons: 1. No wifi, bathrooms have only soap and shampoo. So you have to carry hair dryer etc. 2. It's surrounded by greenery so this is not a con. Naturally you will encounter mosquitoes, frogs, spiders and ants. They are harmless and unavoidable in such a setting.
