If you are looking for a calm and quiet getaway with a beautiful view, look no further. This is a secluded 10 room retreat, nestled on top a hill with good view of the Arabian Sea. Though the place offers a good view of the beach, it is not an easy task to reach the beach. So, In case you... More

Great hotel surrounded by nature with a beautiful view on the sea. Lovely decorations inside and outside the rooms. The staff was especially efficient and friendly and the food absolutely delicious. They even went to buy lobsters for us and cooked them to perfection. Thank you so much !

The infinity pool overlooking the palm trees and down to the beach was a lovely surprise. The staff were attentive and generous throughout our stay. And I must give a special mention about the food which was consistently superb. It's a small hotel with excellent standards and staff which we could not fault.

OTH is perfect for a short stay. I would suggest you book an Ola cab instead of going with one of the private cabs for the 25km ride from Kovalam. The private guys tend to overcharge.. By a LOT!! A warning - The approach road to the resort is not great and I can only imagine how bad it can... More

This is a small resort with a few rooms over a hill overlooking the ocean. It's surrounded by the forest and I hardly can imagine a better setting. The sea is a 15 minutes walk trough the palms and the Isola di Cocco resort. Actually you won't really need the beach once here, because the swimming pool is surrounded by... More
