Surya Samudra is set in 20 acres of lush coconut forest with wonderful views of the Arabian Sea. The atmosphere is relaxed and the pace of life slow and tranquil, making this a great place to relax after the excitement and bustle of India's towns and cities. Blending traditional Keralan culture with Western comforts, the resort offers comfortable and secluded accommodation.
There are 31 cottages scattered throughout the grounds, set amidst rich vegetation ensuring privacy and located on different levels. All are constructed of wood recycled from traditional Keralan homes, fully restored and updated with air conditioning and modern amenities. The cottages are spacious and light, with large windows that can be opened to the air and sea views. The bathrooms are open to the sky and each cottage has its own eating area and veranda.
Sandy paths link the cottages to the main guest areas including the inviting swimming pool, with loungers and parasols and views of the sea. Essence restaurant specialises in Asian cuisine and uses fresh fish and seafood which is plentiful. International dishes are available at Cafe Samsara. Both restaurants have panoramic views over the ocean. There's a separate bar offering a wide range of drinks.
The spa has a broad range of treatments and massages, including Ayurvedic therapies as well as Oriental and Western treatments. All therapists are also trained in yoga and can construct personal treatment programmes on request, as well as conduct sunrise and sunset yoga sessions. Hotel staff can arrange sightseeting trips to places of interest in the area including temples, museums and art galleries, as well as houseboat cruises on the Kerala backwaters.
