“A stunning and remote glamping hotel nestled amongst the coconut trees on Kalkudah Beach. Luxurious tents offer double beds, outdoor seating, and creative bathrooms guaranteed to please. The restaurant serves fresh local seafood and curries cooked to perfection- there is no liquor but you can BYOB.”

Hotel Review

When we visited this was the only hotel on the beach- unheard of! The 17 tents are scattered amongst the coconut trees and cashew groves giving them all privacy and a desert island feel. If you can't manage the few steps down to the beach after a hefty lunch of aromatic curries and tuna tartare then hop into the stunning saltwater infinity pool to cool off. The grounds are scattered with original artworks and local sculptures giving the place the feel of an open air gallery. This is a must visit, before the crowds come and take over!
