“A potential destination”
Reviewed 31 December 2011

I was here on my honeymoon trip. Stayed here for few days. Located on a beautiful and lonely (almost) beach. If you are looking for relaxing trip, you can include it in your list. It is still in the process of landscaping and I hope within a year or so it would be really coming to its real potential. But still whole lot of green around. Its ayurvedalya is averagely fine.
On con side, there is no room service and kitchen is poor. They have fixed timings for beach (8am to 7pm).

Room Tip: cottages/ villa numbers 1,2,3 are closer to beach.

Turtle beach had everything: rooms with international confort level and equipement, great beach with very less people, really very good food (not only pure indian...). And what really impressed us, the staff was extremely kind. We will come back for sure!
One single hint: we stayed in a beach cottage with 2 rooms and our neighbours watched TV at a high sound level, so if you can afford take a villa with one single room.

Room Tip: Take a villa

As you enter the the hotel you reach the greenery with huge gardens spread across.everything looks just right. The smiles all around, the ambience, the overll setting, everything is too good. The overall propoerty is huge and still has a cozy kind feeling to it. The rooms are well placed and excellent housekeeping done on each room.our group stayed in 4 cottages and the cottages was mere perfect.Food was good in the restaurant and was perfect if you are sticking on some kerala dishes.you feel better here,even though the property is huge you are taken care off.Overall Well managed resort true to Gods own country feeling.

Room Tip: select one closer to beach if you are ready for long walks

Every possible aspect has been taken care of with lot of efficiency and personal touch.
The personalized check in process, perfect house keeping,the authentic Kerala style restaurant, ayurveda...everything was just perfect.it was good to see rain in the end of August.Any requests made from the room were always met incredibly quickly. The grounds - beautiful and well-maintained.The beach was very calm with silver sand around.The food was equally good and they always serve with a human touch.We still rember the send off they have given us while we are checking out after our 3days stay in the resort.Thank you marari,Love to come back while we are back in kerala next time..

Blown away by the welcome after a difficult journey. Had two beech villas for my children (4) in one and my wife and me in the other. Impressed by cleanliness of each villa. Amazed to have flowers laid out on the bed after they were made by the service staff.
Like the other reviews we also found the restaurant staff helpful and friendly.
Beech was very clean after mid-morning. Early morning walks spoilt by fishermen defaecating. The strong waves and undercurrents clean the beech within a few hours. These also make it unsafe to swim when we were there although family enjoyed playing in the surf. Pool was adequate although not as well illuminated as in the photos.

Room Tip: Beech villa
