What's Good: Location and knowledgeable host
What needs to improve : Ants
Reason For Rating : Location. Food. Theyyam experience.

The accommodation is very simple - not all rooms had air conditioning or functioning A/C, and there were a few ants in the small, simple bathroom. Indian breakfast and dinner was around a 12 seat table with Mr. Kurian and staff serving serving ample portions on traditional banana leaf "plates". Mr. Kurian knows all the activities (Theyyam rituals,weaving and spice factories); how long it will take and the best times to go. It was very hot and humid here at the end of Feb. so we went a couple of times down the not very well-defined, path to the beautiful, almost deserted beach about 12-15 walk away. Waves weren't too big, but it was good for body surfing.

I went to Costa Malabari for a weeklong program, and was so lucky to be able to stay with the great staff. The location is a former weaving shop, and very traditional. The accommodations are simple (don't expect high end here) but very nice. What really sets it over the top is the service. The food was incredible, and Kurian and his staff are so nice and accommodating. He made all the arrangements for any travel, including to a Theyyam ceremony, which he explained to us so we knew what we were going to observe. He even got my garments hemmed when we came back from the weaving cooperative. The location is about a 7 minute walk to the lovely Thottada Beach. If you are going to stay in the Kannur area, you would be hard pressed to find a better place to stay!

Just back from Costa Malabari Guest House. Kurian is a pioneer - he was the first one to open a guest house in this wild, authentic, preserved environment. It is simple, not luxury. Beds are comfortable, rooms with a fan or AC. The rooms all surrind the living/dining room. The food is authentic keralan food, and this is something that is becoming very hard to find. Wifi - Kurian will help you for trains and excursions to weawing factories and THEYAM ceremonies or massage. He is a knowledgable man, his staff has class, discretion and a very unique aura. Again, it is simple but clean. If you want luxury, go somewhere else. But if you are looking for genuiness, uniqueness, authenticity. Beach is a few mn walk away, and the way to the beach is a little path in the palm trees forest.

People go to Kannur for two reasons- either the beach or to experience Theyyam. I go for the latter and have been there three times. The beach is deserted, peaceful and lovely. But if you come to experience the amazing Theyyam rituals, Costa Malabari is the place to be. It is located on a hill, just a short walk down to the beach. Kurian, the owner is a font of information about local customs and culture and where and when the Theyyam performances are held. He is the main reason I love to come here. The food is included in the price, as in all places in Kannur, because it is an isolated location and you cannot get anything on your own. The meals were delicious, often prepared by his wife and presented beautifully on a banana leaf.

Costa Malibari 1 is a charming,quiet,comfortable,immaculately clean and well maintained homestay perched amongst palms on a low cliff above a lovely little beach which you can access by means of steep stairs ,the view is lovely & there is also the fabulous Thotada beach a five minute walk away. Mr Kurian and his wife Annie have been looking after guests for about 20 years and whilst Malibari 1 is simple it is very well thought out with comforts often missing in more upmarket places. The windows and doors have efective insect screens , properly working fans, lots of hot water big bathrooms & the beds are very comfortable with good matresses and a toplayer of memory foam with nice well fitting hand loomed sheets.On the veranda are wooden deck chairs from which to admire the sunset and watch for dolphins also with locally hand woven seats . The food ,included in the price & prepared by Annie is very good we ate wonderfull Kerala veg dishes and fresh fish and at breakfast had freshly made juices and wild honey, and should you have any special requests she will endeavour to provide. Unfortunately due to the effects of typhoon Occhi we weren't able to swim after a quick dip on arrival as the winds became tremendous and the ocean very wild,but our stay was very atmospheric and it was quite something lying in bed at night listening to the gales and the raging sea only a stones throw away. Mr Kurian is also a very knowledgable and thoughtful host he will arrange outings and transport and is fascinating to talk to as he is an expert on the mysterious Theyyam rituals and knows a great deal about history.He also is invoved with local charities & initiatives to help with waste reduction roadside litter collecting and plastic recycling amongst other things . Last but not least I must mention Ranesh who helps look after guests and works hard at keeping everything clean and neat,he has replanted the garden with grass and is making a vegetable garden and he is the harvester of the wild honey a skill he learned in his home district of Wayanad . My boyfriend and I both loved this place and it reminded me of the rustic charms of the India of thirty years ago when I first came to Kerala,do go !
