I spent 3 nights here on the coast to refresh but also to continue my experience with Theyyam Ceremonies and I had the best of both those worlds. Mr Kurian was indeed knowledgeable and a generous host who arranged local transport and an early morning visit to a remote temple to witness at close quarters a fire Theyyam. Spectacular and mystical. Perched above the Arabian Sea with a daily toddy tapper clambering up one of the palms to extract its sweet sap, you can enjoy the quieter life on the Malabar Coast far from mass tourism.
Stayed a couple of nights here. Food included in price - and it was fantastic. Kurian the owner always on hand with tips/advice and help plus a good sense of humour. Spent time in the kitchen with his wife Anni who does all the food - got some great cooking tips from her! Rooms are basic but hot water plentiful- great value for money. Secluded beach at bottom of stairs going down cliff. Beautiful views of sunset. Easy to walk through quiet lanes to massive empty Thottada beach.
The accommodation is very simple - not all rooms had air conditioning or functioning A/C, and there were a few ants in the small, simple bathroom. Indian breakfast and dinner was around a 12 seat table with Mr. Kurian and staff serving serving ample portions on traditional banana leaf "plates". Mr. Kurian knows all the activities (Theyyam rituals,weaving and spice factories); how long it will take and the best times to go. It was very hot and humid here at the end of Feb. so we went a couple of times down the not very well-defined, path to the beautiful, almost deserted beach about 12-15 walk away. Waves weren't too big, but it was good for body surfing.
I went to Costa Malabari for a weeklong program, and was so lucky to be able to stay with the great staff. The location is a former weaving shop, and very traditional. The accommodations are simple (don't expect high end here) but very nice. What really sets it over the top is the service. The food was incredible, and Kurian and his staff are so nice and accommodating. He made all the arrangements for any travel, including to a Theyyam ceremony, which he explained to us so we knew what we were going to observe. He even got my garments hemmed when we came back from the weaving cooperative. The location is about a 7 minute walk to the lovely Thottada Beach. If you are going to stay in the Kannur area, you would be hard pressed to find a better place to stay!
Just back from Costa Malabari Guest House. Kurian is a pioneer - he was the first one to open a guest house in this wild, authentic, preserved environment. It is simple, not luxury. Beds are comfortable, rooms with a fan or AC. The rooms all surrind the living/dining room. The food is authentic keralan food, and this is something that is becoming very hard to find. Wifi - Kurian will help you for trains and excursions to weawing factories and THEYAM ceremonies or massage. He is a knowledgable man, his staff has class, discretion and a very unique aura. Again, it is simple but clean. If you want luxury, go somewhere else. But if you are looking for genuiness, uniqueness, authenticity. Beach is a few mn walk away, and the way to the beach is a little path in the palm trees forest.
