The Kannan beach resort offers a lovely beach-side and green mansions adjacent to a vast seashore; rich with coconut trees. The accommodations provide traditional and modern facilities that come along with amenities such as a sparkling pool, ayurvedic massages, plantation visit, and fishing.
A small complex of white cottages with traditional wood-tiled roofs, Kanan Beach Resort backs on to a long sweep of golden sands just beyond the small town of Nileshwar. Fishermen launch their boats here, herons and egrets stalk the shallows. Paths run between the beach and the resort’s gardens – complete with coconut palms and hammocks. This is a simple-yet-stylish outfit, its 10 generously sized bedrooms opening on to wide decks. You sink into the peace here, lounging by the pool, taking Ayurvedic treatments in the small spa or pottering to the sea. You won’t find much in the way facilities for visitors beyond the hotel but the genial staff will arrange temple visits and rice-barge cruises on the waterways.
