Indeed, we were very pleased to stay in this house where our room was confortable, well furnished, clean. The big surpise was the bathroom: on one hand it was completerly enclosed, and on the other, the shower on the open air (whitout a roof)! All...More

Hi, we are doing a tour of India, and will finish at the Abad Turtle for a relaxing end to our trip, and would like to enjoy a few beers, I know the hotel is "dry" but is it possible/easy to buy drinks?

We also stayed at the Abad Turtle Beach for our final week and thoroughly enjoyed it. The hotel restaurant does carry a limited supply of Kingfisher that can be purchased with the evening buffet (200r) but have no objection to taking your own in. It's virtually impossible to buy alcohol anywhere on a Sunday, so it's best to queue up at one of the drink outlets (Kingfisher large bottle 70r). It's a bit of a free for all and best to go with a taxi driver who knows his way around. Abad rooms have a small refrigerator to keep a few bottle cold. Nearest alcohol outlet on the main Kochi - Alleppey highway about 400yds south of the crossroads on the inland side. P.S. a half bottle of local gin, perfectly acceptable, was about 450r. Hope this helps
