Was pleasantly surprised by everything I experienced during my visit for the recent long weekend .
1) Booking via their chat / WhatsApp is super easy - Reshma from their reservations team was patient with multiple date changes and ensured she stayed connected
2) Pick the rooms 101-102 for instant access to the beach though the clean mararikulam beach is accessible in minutes from any room .
The rooms are basic , spacious enough for 3 adults and clean . All cottages are similar
3) Pristine -quiet and clean beach with no touristy trappings
4) Pool is open and kids can enjoy a combination of beach and pool
5) Most of their dishes are excellent - especially the local flavours . We tried the a la Carte on all days . Very decent breakfast buffet spread
including some kids special items like nuggets
6) This takes around 2 hours from Kochi airport and cabs will charge 1800-2200 one way depending on the car
6) Supremely friendly and hardworking staff. Everyone is involved in either maintaining the property or helping guests with a smile.
In summary , complete value for money. The access that this property has and the hospitality of each staff beats any 5 star property. Waiting to try the next Abad property soon.More
