A beautiful property with one side facing backwaters and the other side sea! The staff were extremely welcoming ( Manju, Bijo, Vineeth etc) and the food was amazing 😍 Their Cherai Fish curry is a must try. The pool was clean and had a really good view. Activities like cycling and Kayaking is definitely a cherry on top 👍🏻 Keep up the good work team ❤️ Definitely coming back!

I felt like I was royalty staying here! This is a lot more expensive than most places in the area, but it feels like you get total value for money. The grounds are immaculate but still somehow full of birds, which are a delight to watch. Great pool. Cool, dark rooms (we stayed in one of the cottages). Toiletries and a great shower. Pretty nice restaurant with room service. Breakfast included and very tasty. The staff were wonderful. Honestly can't think of a single complaint!

Hands down, this is the best place in Cherai. I have to be honest that, when I booked this place, it was more like a trial because this was a little known property to me and almost all my Cherai staying experiences were bad before this one. So, I had booked the Hyatt for next day as a backup. But as soon as I checked in, I was totally convinced and amazed at the overall quality of rooms, staff, ambience etc. So we ended up extending at Maliekal itself and it turned out to be a great decision. They provide five star facilities with a personalized touch. You dont have to dial "0" or "9" and wait for anything. Almost all the key personnel's mobile numbers are given out to you during checkin. Lexy, Manoj and Shijo were great and so were all the other supporting staffs. The rooms are to notch and the service is excellent. I went with wife and my 6 year old. There is a nice little pool with an artificial waterfall, the beach is at a stone's throw away distance and there is a restaurant by the beach as well. Overall, Maliekal Heritance is my idea of relaxation. Price is on the higher side but its totally worth it.
