Our time at Blue Mermaid was unforgettable. After spending 2 days there, it was clear that there was much more relaxing to be done. Owners Indu & Pradeep are a fantastic duo and couldn't have welcomed us with any more warmth. They're two very interesting people who we got to know well during our stay and now consider friends. Indu...

My partner and I, from the UK, recently stayed at Blue Mermaid as a "stop off" whilst making our way down the coast of Kerala. Our intention was to stay two nights and then keep on moving. When we arrived we were greeted like family members, by hosts Indu and Pradeep, and it wasn't just an act of customer service......

DO NOT STAY HERE- they lie about prices and try to overcharge you during checkout. We very clearly agreed to a price of 2500 for a room with air conditioning and 3 people (2000 base rate and 500 for an extra person) Then they raised it to 2600, which we still agreed to. They determined that there wasn't a room...

Fell in love with the place the moment we reached here. It is pretty far away from the main city so it is advantageous to have your own vehicle. But even if you do not have it do not wory because Indu and Pradeep are really nice hosts who will definitely arrange for some means of transport if you need...

We stayed here about a month ago and I've been dreaming about it ever since! The Blue Mermaid has everything that you could ever want for a perfect holiday! The most beautiful setting, nestled among the palm trees which line an almost deserted tropical beach - pristine sands, incredibly warm waters and stunning wildlife. I even had a dolphin swim...

I recently had my second stay at the Blue Mermaid and I'm pleased to say everything in my first review still holds true. The beach is beautiful and quiet, the rooms are clean and nicely fitted and the food is great. Everyone was very friendly and I'll be looking to stay there again next time I find myself in north...

This is definitely a paradise, one of the last on the increasingly more touristy Malabar coast. What makes it a paradise is the location - a nice stretch of beach, almost private, a beautiful garden, airy rooms ... - but first and foremost, the hosts, Indu and Pradeep - who really are perfect hosts!!! Indu cooks herself, though she could...

We really liked our stay here. The rooms are very nice and tidy, the beach and sea are amazing (we swam a lot). Food is lovely, so are the guests. There are only a few rooms, so the atmosphere is quiet and relaxing.

Came by myself for this trip and stayed in the cottage as I normally do. Indu & Pradeep were wonderful hosts and although on my own they made me feel so comfortable. The food was as good as ever, all home cooked with fresh vegetables and fish from the local market. Meal times are set (breakfast 8.30 am and dinner...

Very quiet location at the very end of the narrow road to Thottada Beach, with delightful gardens, and clean modern accommodation, within well-designed building that blends in with the palms. The food is fine, which is just as well because there are no other facilities nearby. The beach is safe and empty, a long stretch of sand, backed with palms,...
