Beach resort in the literal sense - imagine staying 10 metres from the waves - well at Azure you get to do just that. Small is big is something that I believe in and Azure proves it right. Spacious heritage style cottages, bang on the beach, delicious food and good service makes this cute boutique property one of my favourite picks. Ideal for all segments and all age groups.

We booked 2 nights directly with the property for 7k/nyt incl breakfast which I thought was a reasonable price considering we were promised a beach front villa! Yes, it’s 15mins from the Alleppy backwaters so u can have d best of both worlds sea/beach & houseboats! The GM Mr. Arun is a local knowledgeable man who understood our requirements well & was a pleasure to talk to for hours on our private sit out in d varandah of d cottage. The food was super good, fresh catch seer fish was served wrapped in a banana leaf smeared with Kerala masala, along with some local chicken dish & fresh calamari with fat local Kerala rice! We stayed at the Alabama cottage which am guessing is the biggest cottage amongst all. Initially we were taken aback as the view of the sea from the cottage was compromised with local fishermen boats & nets along with stacks of dried palm leaves when compared to uninterrupted views from some other cottages occupied by other guests. But the v.size of our cottage in addition to an uber big semi open en-suite with open to sky shower (reminded me of Bali) convinced us that the compromised view can be compensated by walking 5 steps out of your room out on d Omanapuzha beach & eventually watching the fishermen’s routine & witnessing what was their catch of the day unloading right in front of u became an add on experience. The outside open areas were broomed regularly of all the dried leaves etc. by the dedicated staff, however our private sit out area was not cleaned until requested which needs the management’s attention. The Marari stretch is frequented by foreigners due to the clean secluded beaches hence you will find quite a few 5 star resorts on this stretch. We can definitely have a functioning beach facing Ayurveda spa here to complete the Kerala experience along with a half day cruise in the Arabian Sea wd packed lunch as Azure Tides USP in future!

Resort is worst and worst in terms of food, facilities, housekeeping and everything. It's total rating should not be more than 2. I don't know how trip advisor added this resort on their site. Pathetic experience.

A highly overpriced resort with grossly inadequate value for money. Had booked a cottage for a 2 night stay a month in advance. Till check in the staff couldn’t confirm which cottage I’m being allotted. The restaurant rates were comparable to a 5 star hotel with food being served in a mix of ceramic and normal steel crockery. The staff couldn’t keep pace even with a couple of families with even drinking water and buffet refills coming in 10-15 min each. The glass water tumblers were chipped on the edge making it dangerous and unseemly to drink. The Cable TV in the rooms was mostly local channels with remote control not working beyond 3-4 metres range. Leaches were on the ceiling and dripping on the bed at night. Yes, leaches. The bathroom is outdoor with few bamboo sticks bordering it with adequate opportunity for peeping toms to look inside. The pillows were so thick that the neck almost sprained. No liquor, no spa (though claimed). A GROSSLY overpriced resort. NOT RECOMMENDED. You can take my word. I paid 12,000/- per night for this (only breakfast included). Had to check out the very next morning as I’d not expected this kind of standard. The photos on the website are very deceiving. All the best to those still willing to shell out 11-12k a night for such standards.

It's a great place to de-stress and relax your mind with great sea-facing rooms. The staff was terrific, and they were extremely accommodating. If you're with family its the best to spend the evening on the beach. (Almost like a private beach) with not much of a crowd. In short - an ideal antidote to the stress of day-to-day life.

I checked out from this resort on 16th August 2021. The only good thing about this place is the location. You are actually located on the beach and can see/hear the sea at all the tines. The cons- the service is poor and takes a lot of time to serve even a normal tea in the room. The electronic equipment like ACs and fridges were not working in room 108 where i stayed. The linen and towels were old and needed to be replaced. The buffet was cold and house flies infested the fruits corner, no arrangements were made to cover the same with a mesh. The water pressure in the showers was so low that you needed 20 mins to wash off the sand. All in all if you want to be comfortable, please avoid this place. If comfort is not your priority then you must go ahead and stay.

It is really a best place to stay close the sea and serene nature. Throughout our stay it was calm and quiet. It pleased us to connect with nature all the time. Room service and other caring staff was extremely patient and service minded. I will certainly choose this place if I decide Alappuzha as next vacation destination. Only recommendation is to have in-room dining which is missing. Otherwise everything was overwhelming..
