“good”
Reviewed 10 February 2013

We stayed in this place for one day/night in Jan-13.
The location of this place is across the road from beach. So its not exactly a beach resort in the sense you cant walk into beach from your room. However its 2 minutes away. Rooms and place are clean and well maintained. From anti skid tiles at required places and several other safety measures in place it seemed like these guys knew their business. Staff, courteous. Rooms are spacious, clean and bathrooms have super showers and 24 hr hot water. Restaurant and food not bad at all.
Swimming pool in the back side is decent with a great view of backwaters. But water seemed so much chlorinated that it tasted bitter and my friend and myself could not open our eyes inside water at all. Pool side service was good, there was a good supply for fresh pool towels.
There are ayurvedic treatments available but we didnt avail any.
So coming back to location, I should say I was disappointed going in expecting a typical beach resort. The beach too is not the best with huge crowds on sunday evenings and hence gets little dirty. Its better to spend time there before late evenings because of crowds. However the hotel made up for some of my disappointment with good facilities.
Food for vegetarians will be very expensive because you pay the same price and get much lesser variety. A lunch buffet costed 460 with taxes. Complementary breakfast was good. Staff in restaurant were good but some junior ones needed grooming. A curt NO TOAST was the reply I got when asked for toasting bread. However a senior person obliged happily.
Over all, I would say this is a good place to stay if you are just looking for a good place to stay because then beach would come as bonus. But if you want to go there for beach I am sure there are much better choices.

Had a great stay at this hotel. The rooms all have balconies and ours faced right onto the beach. There is a/c, TV, and the bathrooms are very well-equipped and have super showers with plenty of hot water. The swimming pool is at the back of the hotel and from there you have a beautiful view of the backwaters. My only teeny complaint is that there aren't enough sunloungers and umbrellas by the pool.
Breakfast is included and mainly consists of Indian dishes, all of which were delicious.
All the staff are so so nice, especially David on reception.
There isn't a great deal to do on Cherai Beach apart from chill-out and just relax. Our 2 nights just flew by and I was sad to leave.

The hotel is right on the beach front and also has a reasonable sized pool to the rear which looks out onto the back waters. There are only 4 sunbeds however.
Breakfast came included and was usual Indian breakfast dishes. All buffet style. Very tasty.
We have a front seaview room with balcony which is a little tired and could do with a paint job but has aircon, TV, safe and a very impressive shower with 5 shower heads!!
David on the reception was very attentive and helpful.

I was here in this property last month following good reviews on the web about Blue Waters, cherai. As expected, the resort had lots to offer and the staff and management were very co-operative and particular about taking care of guests to the guests' taste and expectations.

Though there are a few limitations to the Resort's facilities and surroundings, the attitude of the staff from all departments actually more than made up for any guest to feel satisfied and happy.

WE were thoroughly satisfied and would love to come back here anytime

I stayed at this hotel for more than a week on my visit to cherai .. First the hotel has one of the best locations - right next to the beach. The service was really golden. They are ready at your service at any point., even helped me book my tickets at the last moment. The rooms are really luxurious & beautiful. Choose this hotel & u won't be dissapointed cause i had a great time.

i stayed in this resort for 3 days and was shocked to find that the service was so poor and absolutely disgusting. most of the time the hot water wouldn't be working and TV was absolutely noisy. We had to call the room service continuously and after a day or two they fixed.
The rooms are priced so high but the quality of service is so terrible.

also would like to warn about the ayuvedic massage service provided by them.
.i was absolutely horrified by the service, as the rooms for massage are not even properly secured. the doors are not even properly locked and appears like anyone can have access to the massage room.had a very bad experience when one of the men staff tried to open the door while i was having a massage......later on he apologised saying he was not aware that therapy was going on. very silly excuse......

very unsafe place for women!!!!!please do not visit the massage centre...

i would never recommend this place for any one......

This is a good hotel for stay in Cherai. It is very near to Cherai beach.

Food at the restaurant was also good.

It's location is awesome as In the front is Cherai beach and in the back there are Backwaters. So you can enjoy beach views as well as BackWaters views.
