I have stayed in three of the main hotels in Cherai over the last two visits to this area and as soon as I walked into this place and had a look around I thought this is exactly what I've been looking for.
Opened about a month ago, Les 3 Elephants is a warm and friendly, beautifully designed eco resort overlooking the backwater with about a dozen huts with traditional Kerelan style roofing which makes them particularly and surprisingly cool throughout the day. All the rooms I saw were well appointed and clean with attention to style and functional detail throughout, and my room had a private outdoor lounge area with a fan, perfect for reading in the evenings. The outdoor restaurant is a friendly gathering place throughout the day, with a different menu each evening, serving indian and French cuisine. The staff were also friendly, efficient and helpful.
All in all, a perfect and peaceful location at the end of a village, with a lovely atmosphere, only a few minutes walk to the spacious beach, a 5 minute ride to Cherai Beach junction and 10 mins max to Cherai town. Well worth a stay here for a while.
