Recharge in the casual ambience with open, interactive kitchens. Take your pick from the buffet or sit back and relish a menu specially designed by our chefs. A hot favourite is the Karimeenpollichathu (Pearl spot fish steamed in banana leaf with a unique tamarind based paste). And the bamboo steamed puttu (rice cake) with a spicy chick pea curry is to die for. You must try the traditional Kerala banana leaf lunch, served with local flavour, and lots of affection by staff dressed stylishly in the traditional fashion.

Allow Vishnu, our gifted mixologist to offer you Nature's Gift. A white rum based cocktail that balances ginger, cardamom, cinnamon and clove with cool coconut water. The South Indian Sangria with curry leaves, Cointreau, red wine and sugar syrup is another house favourite.


WHERE THERE‘S SMOKE, THERE'S SIZZLE. While on the poolside, look west and it's the Arabian Sea; look straight ahead and the breathtaking backwaters of the Kappil River stare back at you. Look in your plate and discover barbecue food with a fresh twist at BBQ by the Pool! As fresh as fresh can be, at one of the finest barbeque restaurants in Bekal. Enjoy the Fresh Catch of the day straight from the nets to your plate. Delightfully grilled the way you like it. We rely on the breeze from the sea and the backwaters to spread the good word of what is on the charcoal grill. Last heard, the ethnic spiced mackerel served on a bed of idiyappam (rice vermicelli) was making headlines.


GET FISHED OUT BY THE BAY. By the Bay, Bekal pays tribute to Kerala cuisine. The swaying palms; the playful sea; the bracing breeze; the imaginative architecture that evokes an unmistakable sense of Kerala in its wooden beams and thatched rooftops, all come together to make your dining experience a memorable one. Our flavours stem from the belief that nature is the only true artist. So, each dish is prepared using fresh produce and pure ingredients.
