Tucked away in the backwaters this place is perfect for a retreat. Simple but stylish rooms and communal area to sit and chat relax in a hammock or just take in the sounds around. The rooms were cleaned daily, with fresh towels and bedding when required. As this was an Ayurveda Retreat the food was freshly cooked and tailored to our requirements including a traditional style indian breakfast. Staff were helpful at all times even taught the group to play carroms a traditional Indian table board game. All my group had a wonderful experience and are hoping to return.

Get connected with the nature and relax in a scenic and quiet place. This property is well suited for this. We stayed at premium backwater view cottage and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Place is very calm. You can watch the fishermen's Chinese fishing nets. Sunrise boat ride. The staff are very friendly. Food was amazing. A mini collection of books available to pass the time. Moon light dinner was fantastic.
Access to the beach is within 10 mnts walk.
Only disadvantage we found was the access to the hotel and parking.
The Hotel has to place proper sign boards in the main road. We could find the location only with the help of Google map.
Otherwise I would strongly recommend this place for a relaxed stay.

This the second time I have been here and it really is heaven on earth! The chilled vibes of the whole of the Cherai area plus this little oasis even calmer and more peaceful in the midst of all, this is incredible. It is a true paradise. The rooms are clean,. airy and beautiful,, all with a private bathroom. the gardens are delightful add restful, especially for relaxing and gazing at the beautiful views of the backwaters and nature and ;listening to the birds. In addition there is fabulous ayurveda treatment and yoga available and delicious food. All the staff are friendly, efficient helpful and lovely. What more do I need!

I went on my own but to organised aryuvedic retreat. The retreat was organised by a British woman and on her website she described the guest accommodation for the retreat as ‘bright, airy and simply luxurious’. My experience was anything but! I arrived at the location after a long journey from the uk and we initially sat in the communal dining area. The general feel and look of the place was scruffy and the cushions of the seating area were stained and dirty.
I was shown to my room, which was a standard and all that had been available when I had booked. The room was compact with only a bed, small wardrobe and table under an equally small window. The room was dark and oppressive and certainly not bright and airy. It felt like a cell with dark wood and very little light. The bathroom was very basic. It was dirty with dark scum around the toilet base. The “towels’ provided were more like tea towels and despite the member of staff showing me how to work the system for the hot water, there was NO hot water.
After speaking with the organiser, I was moved to a room in a modern block. The bathroom again was basic, dirty and with no hot water. There were only nets at the window and whilst light during the day made sleeping at night, due to the outside garden lights, difficult. There were dogs outside which barked all night long. The little water canal running through the centre of the garden was green with algae. I have travelled in India and a number of Asian countries before and while I was not expecting a 5 star spa experience, I had hoped and expected a basic standard, cleanliness and hot water. Not a lot to ask!. I can honestly say this is the worst place I have ever stayed. I left the hotel early as I just could not face staying in that environment a moment longer. All in all a very disappointing experience at what is certainly not a cheap hotel.

We were a group of 12 people with many senior citizens, had booked for 03/27 (1 Night), 6 rooms including a family room. Room condition were pathetic. Forget about the basic amenities in some of the rooms the fan's were also not working.

Every rooms were missing basic amenities. Rooms were not cleaned, bed sheets were not clean. Sitting area attached to the rooms were in a pathetic condition, you just wont like sitting in that place. In some rooms the room ceiling were being eaten by termites and tiny wood particles were falling down on to the bed.

No coffee making supplies or kettle available in the room. We had to walk to the restaurant to have a morning cup of tea, although the tea served was good..
Breakfast choice was limited, choice between idli+sambar+chutney or toasted bread with butter and jam. Tea/ coffee and juice was served too.

Stagnant water topped with trash or decayed algae greet you at multiple spots.
The so called back water lake which touches the property was in a pathetic condition. Imagine seeing a dead chicken in the water touching the property.

Lack of parking space, we were made to park our cars in nearby property space. Don't know even if that property belonged to the Resort. Also the space where we were made to park our cars were in a pathetic space. Overnight I had parked the car, next day morning the car was completely covered with decayed fruits which fell from the tree where we were made to park of cars.

My reaction after visiting this property, have I come to a resort or a Ayurvedic center. Seems an Ayurvedic Center was converted into a Resort as is.

Definitely if the property is managed better, this would be a good place to spend time with your friends and family.

Stay away!
We went there reading the reviews but this place is nothing like a boutique hotel. It is infested with termites. Even on the dining table you will see mounds of wood powder. The rooms are very dirty, the blankets stink. In the name of eco friendly they have used lots of recycled wood, thats all! No real thought to eco friendliness like providing buckets for bathing which is proven to save water. Not much food options and they are grossly understaffed. Moreover the staff is rude. They charged us 16000 for 2 nights for these facilities, thorough cheaters.

Budget friendly stay. Close to the Cherai beach. They don't have much amenities to offer. The rooms were clean, not too big though. We had a private seating area outside the room.
They have a nice lawn to chill. Indeed a peaceful property.

Our room had a backwaters view(not all rooms have the view, so mention it while booking).

Staff was good. Got complimentary breakfast, which was quite okay.

Never judge the book by its cover . Pathetically maintained ,termites and leaks . Overgrown shrubs and plenty of Mosquito so We checked out the very next day .I would suggest not to go by the pictures posted . That would be pre Covid days for sure .
They should maintain the property first before giving it out for stays !!

Is it possible to arrange airport transfer and check in for 3am flight? What is the distance from COK?
Answer from Anna B
Toronto, Canada39 contributions21 helpful votes
I would say it takes about 45 minutes to get to the hotel from the airport. We had a driver so it was not a problem. I'm sure the hotel can arrange for a pickup. We had several middle of the night plane arrivals and the hotels always had staff on hand. Anna Barnett

Answer from Graham L
Hoi An, Vietnam10 contributions9 helpful votes
Yes. Just ask the hotel to arrange this. The transfer takes 45 minutes and, if I recall correctly, cost about 1600 INR. This is, perhaps, a little expensive, but worth it to have a guaranteed collection. Note that you have to have cash with you as you pay the driver directly; you cannot add the transfer to your room bill.
