“Home from home”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

My husband and I spent six weeks at the Karthika Plaza over January and February. This was our second visit , having spent 2 weeks here 3 years ago. We stayed in one of the large rooms in the new building and were very comfortable there. Lots of space, large comfy bed , fridge and tv...what more can you want! We cannot praise Rajesh and his team enough. The service is fabulous, nothing is too much trouble, but most importantly , they make you feel so at home. The breakfasts are delicious and comes with fresh fruit . The resort is beautiful and spotlessly clean. Rooms are cleaned at least every 3 days , with fresh towels and linens. As we were out and about most days this was more than sufficient, if fact we sometimes had to stop them as it was so unnecessary. As they got to know we genuinely enjoy the local cuisine, we got the option of home cooked local breakfasts and dinners at times , I even had my own private cooking lesson! What more can I say...we absolutely love it and can't wait to go back next year....probably for 8 weeks this time.

Room Tip: We loved the extra space in the new rooms but the smaller rooms are probably a bit cooler as they ge...

We are on our first visit to Kerala, and I and my friend found this a great place in Kerala to stay. We though mixed the track to reach due to too much sleep in train, but when we reached the place through proper guidance frequently from Rajesh. Rajesh and Shijit received us so humbly like a family and even picked us and took us in their car to sea places in time and without much worry. We found room a fantastic, clean beds, clean toilet, good working AC, beautiful garden with flowers and trees around. We served tasty breakfast and even lucky to get super fish dinner since it was holiday and raining. And these two men were so much helpful in servicing us delicious Fish and Chapatis and what not. Just Awesome!!! Will visit and refer to many places to this place. A must visit place..

Room Tip: You have choice to choose room if not is not good. Just chill at this place.

This is possibly the best Place to stay at in Kerala. We were picked up a late night at the railwaystation.Next morning we had awonderful breakfast outside our room. A beutiful garden was around. The Place has got three kindly men to serve you and they do Everything for your best. They take you with car everywhere and they pick you up when you wish. The garden has got small owls and a lot of other birds. It´s a calm Place, but not far from the spectacular Cliffs.

My husband & I enjoyed our stay at the Karthika Plaza in 2013. We loved it so much we returned in January 2014.
Karthika Resort is about 5 minutes drive to the beach & restaurant, that is not a problem as Rajesh or Sugit will take you in the car and pick you up again. They will even take you to a peaceful beach for the morning or all day if you wish. It is a great friendly hotel. The rooms are cleaned every day, so are the bed linen. There were many returned guest, whilst we were staying there. I am not suprised because he makes you so welcome. If you want to go on a train journey, he will collect your ticket for you, save you much time. If you email him regarding any question, he is very prompt. I received an email from him within 20 minutes.
Thank you Rejesh for looking after us.
Keep up the good work.
