“Right across from the fort ...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2012

Its as close as you can get to the Bekal fort (right across from the fort entrance) and a very short walk to the beach stretching away to the north of the fort. The 'deluxe' rooms are a little cramped - but the luxury rooms are adequate. Its all very clean, tidy and comfortable and the staff are very helpful and responsive. Divya was most helpful all the way from pre-booking inquiries to until we left.

We highly recommend that you stray away from the standard menu in the restaurant and request the cook to make you local fare - things like kappa, appams, puttu, nendra-pazham and other good Kerala style food. For some strange reason none of this on the menu - but they will make it for you on request and it is exceptional.

If you are there in the Theyyam season (Dec-Jan-Feb) - go to a performance in the vicinity of course - and visit Ananthapura, for sure. Make sure you do the walk around the outside of the fort - it is spectacular.

Please be responsible with your plastics and non-bio-degradeable trash and please, please do NOT despoil the countryside.

A nice beach resort with amazingly surroundings. Situated right at the gates of the bekal fort, and less than 2 minutes walk to the beach behind the bekal fort. Beach surely is not clean & be careful when you walk to the beach!!!!. The rooms are big & maintained well enough. The resort overall can be better maintained and developed more. Food is toooo very expensive for the taste & surely lack the basic authentic kerala food as the menu mostly has only the north indian cuisine. The accomodation for sure is overly priced due to the place where the resort is located. Though the room comes with complimentary bf, but the bf literally has nothing except bread, jam & omelette. Everything else comes at an extra cost. Most staff are courteous enough, but some lack basic manners. The massage center is too very cramped, with just a couple of massage on the menu. Single handedly managed by one therapist, who is good enough to give you a nice massage after a 9 hour drive. yes the massage was good enough for the price. Overall resort priced at a higher rate surely does not have the service or food for the value of the price.

Really nice room, friendly staff and good location.
Walk through the grounds to a very quiet beach, only a few local children.
The fort is literally next door and well worth a visit.
Stayed 2 nights and no problems at all.
Breakfast and evening meal were good

Nice place with great ambience in and around. The resort is surrounded by nature and bekal fort. The sunset on beach is beautiful to watch and estuary is must visit.. The beach is clean for jogging and walking. Overall updated rooms.
Went for 5 nights . Pocket friendly. We tried spa treatments . It was indeed nice.
