“Les 3 Elephants - A beautiful retreat in Kerala”
Reviewed 2 October 2012

Myself and my partner stayed here a few weeks back as part of our 3 week India tour and I have to say it was our favourite part of the holiday. The resort is set in lush gardens facing on to the backwaters where you can watch the sunrise over the chinese fishing nets. It is also situated a few mins walk to Cheria beach where you can watch the local fishermen, go for walks, swim and watch the sunset. Kotchi is about a 45 min drive away but is easily reached by Tuk Tuk or taxi. The resort has a very relaxed feel and all the staff were very welcoming and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. We particularly enjoyed learning how to play carrom one evening. The food was so good we ate there almost every night. A great mix of Keralan and European food, which changed each day,so our compliments to the chef. The bungalows are beautifuly crafted, clean, spacious and very romantic. A great place to get away from the busy nature of India. Thanks so much to Marjorie and her team for a great stay. We miss you already!

Room Tip: All the bungalows are very individual but all looked lovely inside. We stayed in cottage 2, inspire...

We stayed for five nights earlier in September. It was a fantastic property and a great end of our trip in India. We stayed in bungalow 1 and would highly recommend it- right on the water, quiet, and great size. The staff was the right mix of helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. They are available when you need it, but never intrude and are always polite and friendly. It seems like it all comes naturally here and it fits in great with the ambiance of the surrounding area. It was really quiet and relaxing.

Biggest positives:
Great food- we had French, Thai and Indian food
Fantastic people- every single person we had contact with was friendly
Cool location- how often can you say you stayed at a place that had working Chinese fishing nets steps out your front door?
Room- the little details mean a lot. Fans were available everywhere (and AC if you need it in some of the rooms). The design elements were complete throughout the entire resort. The best bed we slept in.

Room Tip: Room 1- it has AC and is the closest to the water. its worth upgrading to this room if its availabl...

My wife and I had a most enjoyable stay at the Three Elephants Resort and we liked the low key approach but at the same time giving excellent service nothing wa\ to much trouble. This can be rare in a small resort.

Room Tip: Have a room looking at the backwater with it's early morning fishermen

Good location away from the hustle and bustle of the big city. Incredibly welcoming hosts greet you and take care of your needs. Very clean accomodations. Short walk to the beach, yet this part of the beach is more rock beach intended for walks not lounging on a beach. Resort sits on one of the backwater rivers with close proximity to watch the chinese fishing nets in action at sunrise. Recommended if you want to get away from chaos. Only challenge we had was sporadic Internet which we used for keeping in touch with family and work.

We planned our 3 night vacation with the help of Marjorie for our eat, pray love trip and it was everything we could ask for and more. Not only is the property gorgeous and green, the staff were accommodating and made us feel like family. Whatever requests we made... ashram visit, elephant ride, massages and fortune teller, they went above and beyond; I.e., since the fortune teller didn't speak English, they arranged a translator for to come to the property!?

These are the best of people. The property is gorgeous, you will be more than safe and never want to leave.

A most beautiful and memorable visit. Merci, Marjorie!!!

What an absolutely wonderful and charming place. We stumbled across this during a trip in Kerala and only had one night but we really wish we had more. The location and place is just amazing, so close to the beach and with a view directly to the back waters you really couldn't ask for more - but there is more! Marjorie and the rest of the team are an absolute delight and make you feel so welcome. The manager is so friendly and helpful and then there is the food...the sorbet is simply the best! I cannot recommend this place enough, book now!!
