We traveled their last year. We stayed their for couple of days. We chose the antique room with bath tub. The resort was calm and beautiful(outside) but for some reason we were not feeling secured. It looks deserted for us. The room was also not worth the money we paid. There was a column in the middle of the room. There were some sketches on the wall and a wooden cabinet that doesn't made that room antique. And the bathroom was worst, old and stained bath tub, stained mirror, uncleaned flooring and there was no phone. You need to go search for someone if you need anything. About the food, no taste, limited varieties, way too costly. The free breakfast will have 1 or 2 varieties. You cant find any good hotels nearby. The previous night we stayed at Dunes, Cochin, the quality service and the food varieties was no way comparable with this resort. I think I am adding more negative points. There is one more, the pool, not at all clean. Ok now the positive points. The upper deck, the ocean view was pleasing to the eye. If you are lucky you could see dolphins and big fish like baby whales. Dont know exactly what we saw, it was huge. And the infinity pool, apart from uncleanness, the sunset view from the pool was a chilling experience. Overall if the management make some changes to the place it will be the most beautiful stay for the guests.

respected pradeep sir ji, we are looking high and dry but cant locate your booking dates, we apologize for any inconvenience caused to your sense and sensibility as to how exactly an antique room should look and feel ,,,weather a mural painted on a pillar is antique or modern,, a patinated mirror ,,so difficult to achieve,,,shows up as a dirty mirror on your review,, so please accept our apologies for not being up to your taste in judging how a room should be termed antique or modern, we also beg to differ but we were never a multi cuisine mass tourism hotel with many restaurants and a 5 page menu,, we pride our selves in serving authentic kerala style home cooked sea food ,,plus veg food for our yoga and ayurveda guest, nonetheless,,again our apologies for not being as good as dunes,,, once again our apologies for not being a mass tourism multi cuisine multi restaurant resort,,but we are a small 10 room boutique retreat,,touching the arabian sea,,and we like to keep in synch with nature and have all natural stones and finishes ,,with open air dining area,,,overlooking the sea and serve hot dishes,,,served fresh , respectfully at your service radheshyam

Although stayed in Kochi for business opted for this place because of the proximity to the airport and excellent sea view and was not in a least bit disappointed. The place is thoroughly maintained and well designed. Spacious rooms with all the necessary facilities available, picturesque terrace, clean swimming pool with a nice view. The restaurant is great either, food served is delicious. Loved the premises a lot, great for relaxation and unwinding after a hard day. Would definitely like to return here when next time in Kochi.

This boutique beachfront retreat just makes me smile which is why it is my 3rd visit in the space of 15 months. The hotel arranged for a pick up from the airport & when I walked through the hotel's entrance & gardens into reception I was greeted by familiar smiling faces with a truly heartwarming 'welcome back!' A short stay of just 7 nights this time staying in a comfortable & clean double-bed garden room, a very peaceful setting. 36Palms is located away from the main shopping area, bars & restaurants of Cherai Beach & therefore a great spot for families, couples, solo travellers to come to relax, unwind & enjoy the facilities. As well as the perfect setting next to the sea, Yoga, ayurvedic treatments & instruction is another key draw to this place. I enjoyed morning yoga on the sun deck with an experienced instructor & had a wonderful ayurvedic massage. The Heritage Wing is an exciting addition adding more rooms, another sun deck & restaurant facilities. so, in no particular order, my highlights for this trip - watching the dolphins swimming in front of the poolside restaurant, swimming in the infinity pool & the lovely warm sea (nature was in my favour this time & the beach had come back!) relaxing on the sun deck, watching fishermen bringing in their catch whilst the sea eagles circled over head, the gorgeous sunsets, taking early morning walks through the local village with other guests, eating the delicious local food and of course the chit chat & music by the waters edge under a moon lit sky with the music man. My thanks to Gautam, Dorota, & Lakshit for being perfect hosts & another memorable stay, to Karan for looking out for me to make sure i was fed, to all the staff for their helpfulness & smiles & to the lovely guests I met along the way who were great company & fun.
