Overrated hotel”
New Years eve event was great, Kappil beach is perfect for long walks, the buildings have great style
The hotel is by European standards 3 star hotel and a such is way overrated. Beach facilities are poor. Poolside is missmanaged. Both poolside and beach area lack sun beads and sun shades. If you demand you can get ok service. But the star is reactive, not proactive. For tea you need to ask 5 times. For other things less. Many things fail both service and maintenance side. For example it has good bathrooms, but if you use water in bath tube it stays there. They also freeze you off - when you arrive room is around 21 degrees and you can only heat it with hair dryer. If you but air conditioner off, staff turns it on again and again. Also poolside toilets are often extremely cold. And also sometimes wet and out of paper. It's way overpriced. You get same kind of service in Europe with 2 times cheaper price. The long trip there is only worth if you have no access to beaches outside of India. But within India the Kappil beach is the best. Bad thing is that they do not allow swimming. In general Hindus are bad swimmers. In reality you have to ignore the guard if you know how to swim with tides. Under current is not bad, but is strong. Go in if you are able to swim. If not, stay out and use the beach fro long morning or evening walks. For that the Kappil Beach is stunning! ... and there is no shit in the sand as typical for India beaches! But if you are from US or Europe you are better off by going Thailand, Bali or other areas. You get much more for same price and will have stunning service and much cheaper food!

short break”
beautiful setting and rooms,
would consider going back and would definitely recommend this place. Three nights was probably a little two short given it is a long 2 hour drive to the hotel from the airport. there are small excursions you can do from the hotel but we didn't manage them. My cousin said the plantation was well worth the visit. Two minor quibbles 1) the 'Yes, sir' attitude that all the staff employed wasn't always matched by their delivery. this was probably most apparent in the restaurant. The senior staff were very helpful. 2) we would have liked more information 'pushed' to us on arrival, such as the fact that there was a kids play room and playground open all day long, sauna and steam rooms were available and we should book early for treatments as they get busy. Maybe this is all obvious but then again, maybe its not
