#1 of 10 Speciality lodging in Kasaragod
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.

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.

One of the best places we've stayed in India. Stunning location on the backwaters (which are much quieter than those around Alleppy), with all the cottages right on the water's edge. Amazing food - especially the fresh BBQs in the evening (some of the best crab I've ever eaten). The staff are excellent - going out of their way to help with anything. The complimentary boat trips were also great. We stayed three nights but could have stayed much longer. Thanks to Mr Gul and his son for such a great experience!

What a refreshing break from commercial hotel chains - the complete vacation experience with a staff that is incredibly friendly and dedicated. Hard to find a more scenic, friendly and adventure filled place. A must visit once in your life.
