The Sand Castle provides budget accomidation made for travelers.
We only have four rooms, three double and one single. This allows for a lot of personal service. All rooms come with attached bathrooms and the double rooms have A/C on demand.

Directions

Arrival by Airplane

The easiest way to get to The Sand Castle from the Airport is by me sending a taxi to pick you up. If you would like that service please send me your flight info.

Cost: 1000 Rs. Time: 50 min.

Otherwise take a prepaid taxi to Kuzhupilly Beach (you might want to write it down, it is pronounced quite different), if he does not get it ask for Cherai Beach. Once at one of the main beaches, Cherai or Kuzhupilly you take a left, south (the ocean is on your right side), keep going till you see a house on the left side with an aluminum roof, that is The Sand Castle.. From Cherai 15 min. from Kuzhupilly 4 min.

Cost: 850 Rs., plus Tips. Drive Time: 1 h

If you just arrived, I recommend for you to buy a SIM Card at the Airport, outside of the Airport it is almost impossible to get a SIM Card. It make communication within India much easier and much cheaper calling home.
