The unique concept of Les Elephants is born from the association of a locally born businessman, settled in Dubaï since 30 years, and a French Hospitality Designer, who felt in love with Kerala. Both of them shared the same vision, the idea that time had come, to bring the unique area of Cherai Beach on the international tourism map.

Traditional bamboo cottages by the backwaters, colonial style "beach and swimming pool" hotel, or heritage Ayurvedic wellness, Les Elephants have been designed with the dream of pleasing everyone. With its 31 rooms, split between 4 properties, within a 500 meters radius, our philosophy is to deliver high standards hospitality, while keeping the intimacy and the personalized service of a small scale hotel, but also without compromising on the multiple facilities of a large resort.

In fact, our guests are welcome to enjoy the facilities of our other properties.

Staying with Les Elephants means that you can wake up by the sea, take a yoga class watching the sunrise on the backwaters and follow up with a boat ride through the Chinese nets.

If you did not chose to take an Heritage trip to Fort Kochi, or try a typical Kerala thali in the paddy fields, you might want to savor a seafood lunch with a panoramic view on the Arabian sea.

What about following up with an afternoon by the pool, before taking a sunset walk on the beach?

After such a busy day, you'll surely enjoy your evening massage, before a fusion multicuisine diner in a softly illuminated tropical garden.

You could also follow a complete ayurvedic treatment, discover how to play carrom, bicycle around, try henna or palmistry, go shopping, plan a trip to the hills, do a lot, do nothing, meditate, learn about local culture, go kayaking on the backwaters, play with the waves, build sand castles on the beach, take a walk on Munambam jetty, spot dolphins if you are lucky, visit the local harbor and its colorful boats... and much much more...

You will need several days, or several visits, to explore every options of Les Elephants.
