We had one of the four bungalows on this beautiful property. The veranda was as big as the interior and our delicious meals were served there. Staff were always helpful but unobtrusive, and meals were served at whatever time we wanted them. The grounds are landscaped so that you have maximum privacy between bungalows with beautiful trees and shrubs. The...

The property is made up of I think 4 or 5 'bungalows' which are set apart from each other so plenty of privacy. The one we had was rather dark and felt quite enclosed which was a shame. Bed was comfortable and shower reasonable. Food was very good but was always late arriving and being as we had to state...

The property is well maintained and our villa was finished to a very high standard. Hammocks provide an excellent place to relax and read a book, and the nearby beach is a great place to sunbathe, swim and watch the sunset. The food at A Beach Symphony is exceptional and was a highlight of our trip to Kerala! The chef...

We stayed at Marari Beach which is 14 km outside Alleppey city. The name of our private hideaway was A Beach Symphony and it was great! It’s a small resort with 4 bungalows where relaxation has become an art. The bungalows feel really private because you are surrounded by lushful green. The inside is spacious, has everything you need including...

The place itself looks nice and tidy upon arrival. Although not very sophisticated when you have a close look. Glasses not changed, food over priced, lack of flexibility as no reception and when at the pool no service at all, no water to drink. This is not what I would call a deluxe Boutique hotel. Shower holder broken, spot on...

I read the reviews of mainly three stars and five stars - and that really does sum up the hotel. Plus points are a beautiful set of cottages (4) with nice furnishing and antiques and landscaped (sand) gardens with the noise of the waves crashing against the beach. Minus points - they price as if they are a 4 star...

Small, intimate hotel with just 4 villas. No restaurant but Binu the chef comes around to take your order and the food is delivered to the villa. Real pride is taken in the quality of the food and it shows. Mountain bikes are there to use, a gorgeous granite swimming pool, hammocks and everything required for a relaxing stay.

Dear, luxury comes in many ways & appreciations. Of course, the shower area should have worked better during your visit, for which I'd like to apologize. The origin of the problem with the pool was a broken foot valve and doesn't always show immediately. unfortunately the pool turned very quickly but to revert it again, it takes time. I agree...

We loved our three days here. Our cottage, faced the sea and with nothing and no-one in sightt. Just palm trees, sand and the sound of the Indian Ocean. Completely idyllic after the jangle of London life. The staff were fantastic and the food, cooked to our request each evening, was delicious. We loved the outdoor shower and the shaded...

We stayed here in December at the end of a tour of Kerala. From arrival until departure we found the the place enchanting. We were in the Sitar room which had not got a view or the private pool that Violin has, but was very private and spacious. The design and furnishings have been chosen carefully and are an interesting...
