Externally Cherai Beach Residency looks very smart and very attractive and clean. The plot is nice and cosy.
The staff and owner are always available/visible from morning to evening and do not hide away from the guests. If there are any problems I feel that they would go out of their way to try and rectify the issue.
Staff are very accommodating to any requests made by the guests and feel that they do try and make your stay as good as possible.
Cherai beach itself can be a bit of a spot for groups of boys/men who come in on coaches so can have a bit of a rough feel to it and can be quite dirty. However where the hotel is, is very quiet and has a nice quiet sandy beach with lovely views up and down the beach. The beach is only across a very small quite road so is very convenient where sun loungers are provided
What I would say is that the rooms are a little small and little things like old table cloths, lack of decoration in the rooms, old parasols on the beach and lack of any luxuries make my review 4 out of 5

I was recommended to stay here by Dr Hari from Prakruthi ayurveda and spa which is close by. I think that this is 1 of my best holiday destinations. I have always loved staying by the beach and this was perfect. The sound of the waves still resonate in my mind and the fresh sea breeze is such a relaxant.If you like long walks on the beach , swimming and simply chilling out, this is the place to be. Mr Poly and Jessy made sure that i had a pleasant stay. They are really caring and went the extra length to make sure i was comfortable. When i needed to go out shopping Mr Poly arranged for transportation , even concerned when i was ill 1 of the days.I would never have known that grated nutmeg in hot water is a cure for tummy problem if not for him. I would recommend any solo traveller to come here...it is a very safe place to be. I am a vegan and i had delicious meals prepared by Nidheesh, even learned to cook 2 dishes from him. Indian and western bfast comes with accomodation. Other meals can be ordered via menu. Food is always freshly cooked when order is placed.Chintu and Rajandra are the other 2 staffs there who were very helpful.I am very grateful for all of them for making my stay here enjoyable.The wifi connection is really good. I have recommended this place to everyone i know.Check out my pics , even though i am not the best of camera person, but with such lovely people and sceneries...even the worst photographs will look beautiful. I would definitely visit here again and do check out Prakruthi Ayurveda as well.

I simply love the room#206 that friendly helpful owners, Mr. Poly and Mrs. Jessy have managed to secure booked for me for 8days 7nights. I was there for my 7days Ayurveda Treatments (with Prakruthi Ayurveda Spa and Treatment Center) and Dr. Harikumar highly recommended this residency for me when I mentioned that I want "almost a piece of my own paradise heaven alike".

It's like having a simple heaven with the Arabian Sea view and waves that is solely mine. The mattress, four pillows, clean spacious room with cupboards facilty with a lockable drawer, a mini fridge, kettle with tea bags and instant coffee, private mini balcony, clean big mirror bathroom with WC and standing shower.

The amazing chef follows "religiously" my doctor's written menu for my well-being and always up to my enjoyment. Fresh pineapple juice without sugar and no ice cubes. Fresh banana given daily which helps with my bowel, ahahaa.. The workers there are friendly, respectful of my privacy and concern about well-being. I'm blessed enough.

I love walking on the sandy beach in the morning, trying to be friends with the dogs, crows, cows nearby; layback seated reading a book my doctor gave on the plastic chair at the balcony and I SAW DOLPHINS FLIPPING UP FROM THE WAVES!!

Room Tip: My room was 206 and I love it. So glad I paid for the best at great affortable fee

Location was good, right on the seashore. Friendly people and warm hospitality. This is the BEST place to stay at Cherai. Rooms are small but comfortable with excellent sea view. They do have free Wifi with weak signal. Only down side is food cost, bit high.

Room Tip: Best Sea view

The property is situated right across the Cherai beach and you can view the sea & beach from your room. Hosts are very kind people, well maintained property and food is good too. But, the rooms are not spacious - its good enough for a couple, but with kids not enough. We struggled to adjust with 2 kids, A/C was not effective (thankfully monsoon had set in and we were able to manage). Few things which we generally take for granted in a hotel were not there - open cupboard, no locker, no mirror in the room, though there is one in the bathroom. Was surprised to see the toilet cleaning brush in the bathroom. So its a tradeoff, I would call it more as a homestay than a hotel.
