lazy days

a superb resort on the Arabian sea with a private and pristine beach. Fantastic infinity pool and food to match. Staff friendly, accommodation spacious and clean, an ideal spot to wind down whilst travelling in Kerala. The Lotus houseboat “the best”. Dining on the beach a highlight. Well done staff for making our stay perfect.

A luxurious end to our two weeks travelling in south India

One of the best boutique hotels I have stayed in

“Beautiful accommodation set on the shores of the Arabian Sea. Amazing staff, two restaurants serving local fish. Also can recommend the Spa offering Ayurevic massage. Bungalows simply appointed but very comfortable. The open air garden in the en suite was a novel idea. Beautiful gardens with the passing mongoose going about their daily business. Infiniti […]
