We enjoyed our time here as a family for 3 days, relaxing, quiet and off the grid.
UPSIDES: Within an hour drive south of Kochi, clean bungalows, well-kept and safe grounds, delicious meals 3 times a day (utensils, napkins, etc. all nicely supplied), lots of hammocks by the beach, beer/mango lassi/ice cream delivered to hammocks, nice staff, gorgeous sunsets, decent little pools (although they could use a bit more chlorine), excellent ayuravedic treatments, nice beach with crabs that live in the sand and were tons of fun for the kids (and didn't bother us while lying on the sand at all), love the outdoor bathroom! with hot shower, and cold A/C in the room.
DOWNSIDES: Weak Wifi, room blankets could stand a wash, cost of ayuravedic massage was not communicated clearly up-front so make sure to ask beforehand, if you need cash you'll need to get a rickshaw to go to the ATM (approx 100 rupees).
The other things like hard beds, fishermen that poop on the beach, slower service, etc. are just things that you'll find anywhere on the coast of Kerala (in our experience). So, overall a really nice visit.More
