Such a wonderful guesthouse with a lovely garden area with hammocks, extremely friendly and helpful hosts, delicious food, and feet from a gorgeous sandy beach and lagoon. We stayed in the private bamboo room, which is separate from the other buildings and on stilts, and is really beautifully made. It is so peaceful there, and the porch area is a...

This place is the perfect place to chill out and wind down! We arrived at 7:30pm after a 7 hr train journey having not made a booking. The host welcomed us, showed us to our room and then served us a cold beer and some of the best food in India! The ocean is around 30m away and is like...

This is exactly what we were looking for on our honeymoon!!! 5 stars in every department. With a range of comfortable, clean and spacious rooms all located next to the lapping of the Arabian Sea and overlooking luscious backwaters you really can't go wrong. Add in there the amazing hospitality of Indu and Pradeep, the delicious food and plentiful amounts,...

We stayed at Blue Mermaid for a few nights as a last stop of our Indian stay. We got the sun, sea and relaxation we wanted. Not only was the surrounding extremely nice - we especially enjoyed the peaceful beach, we had a comfortable room and got to enjoy the marvellous food served as breakfast and dinner. The service was...

After two weeks of traveling around southern India we were ready for a quiet and relaxing breather before the long trip home. Well, we couldn't have chosen better. The Blue Mermaid was perfect. Right on a fantastic stretch of a clean beach, calm waters day and night, and hardly anyone else, the location exceeded our expectations. And then, to top...

We visited the blue mermaid recently. To be honest we had a few expectations when we arrived, owing to the reviews on trip advisor. The Kumars exceeded our expectations by many a mile. The location is amazingly serene. A very well maintained homestay with courteous staff available through out our stay. Excellent food was prepared to suit our vegetarian palate....

Definitely not worth its money! 3000 Rs per night for two persons is way overpriced. The location right in front of the beach is perfect if you want to enjoy a few quite days. The garden is beautiful too. The big rooms are clean and comfortable. The included breakfast and dinner is very, very basic. Far away from what you...

This was my second visit to the homestay and i am already planning a third! The homestay is located right next to an amazingly beautiful beach. It's almost a private beach with very less or during the daytime no crowd. You can enjoy a nice walk by the beach, the water is mostly calm making it very safe to swim...

We stayed there for 2 nights.Location is serene, feels almost like having private beach. Food is one of the best I have had in any homestay. Indu(landlady) is welcoming and takes good care of guests.
