Location ! Location ! Location ! Beautiful property located right on the beach. We were in Arabian Villa Joy which probably is best villa on the property location wise. The living room patio opens right on the beach with beautiful views of the sunset and relaxing ocean waves. The bedroom also has the same views but unfortunately they had the bedroom window blocked permanently with tarp - not sure why one would spoil such a beautiful view. The restaurant on the property is very nice and serves good food with nice spread. All the staff is very nice and friendly and courteous. I didnt care for the spa at the property. It can be better in terms of amenities, service and cleanliness. Overall amazing stay and I highly recommend this place.

Although a small resort, The rooms are huge, food is great and staff is very friendly and helpful, The beach is just few steps away and very clean. An excellent place to completely relax and rejuvenate. The spa, although expensive but worth the price for the therapy.

We had a great experience at the resort. The location is fantastic! It has an incredible beach that is very quiet with fewer people than other beaches we visited. The spa has a nice selection of services and we enjoyed our massages and especially yoga every morning. The food at the restraurant was also very good. We also appreciated having an accommodation for our driver. However, we tried to organize a visit to a Theyyam and did not find the front desk helpful.

Really enjoyed our stay at the Malabar Resort. The rooms were clean and the beach view amazing! But what really made our stay special was the warmth and friendliness of the staff. Raghu L. And the rest of the staff from the restaurant at the resort went out of the way to recommend great dishes and even go out of the way to acquiesce to our requests. Chef Abhilash even packed food for the kids to take away when we went out sight seeing. Additionally they even even set up a high tea at the beach which was enjoyable with the sunswt to enjoy. The pool was very clean and well maintained and the kids were able to enjoy swimming when they could not go to the beach.

Cozy and comfortable stay. Swetha helps us with a smooth checkin and warm welcome. Sanesh won our hearts with amazing hospitality and food. He helped us with places to visit around the resort. We loved the beach access from property and hi tea by the beach. Things to Improve: we would prefer dustbins with lid in washrooms and rooms. Exhaust fans would really help in washrooms.

This beach-front property is a true gem! The stunning views, cleanliness & privacy create a perfect backdrop for relaxation. The food is exceptional, with a sufficient menu to satisfy any palate, and the polite & soft-spoken staff that ensures a memorable stay. An ideal destination for those seeking both luxury and natural beauty. Special mention to the most hospitable head chef Mr. Anil Singh Rawat who went above and beyond to serve us delectable vegetarian and non-vegetarian food during our entire stay of 4 nights and Mr. Sasi & Mr. Saneesh for ensuring us a comfortable stay.

The location of the resort is excellent. But the downside is the restaurant. The space is small and the buffet bowls are always empty. Very difficult to get it filled. Except for the location please think twice before selecting this property.
