This hotel has newly added two upper floors. Our room had a lovely semi-outdoor dining area and balcony with sea views, and enclosed bedroom to keep the mosquitoes out. Excellent location and good value. Just lacking a few amenities, like proper shelfs in the bathroom...and no TV. But not missed.

I stayed in room 6 which in my estimation has the best view of the entire Kovalam Beach from lighthouse right down to the end near Hawa Beach. This HUGE room opens up directly onto a massive balcony which runs the entire length of the room therefore giving the best view of the entire Kovalam Beach from lighthouse right down... More

Very helpful staff, clean and nice rooms, some with the most beautiful view you can imagine from the balcony. The breakfast is served at ABC, a restaurant three minutes walk from the hotel, and its very tasty eating with your eyes resting on the ocean.

This place is very close to the beach and to the light house. The view from the room is amazing! The path leading to the place is narrow and not easy to navigate in the dark.

I really love this house, a nice building with a tiny garden. The location is great as it is just a two minutes walk from the beach promenade, it is set just a little off so you don't have to deal with the crowds as well as sleep early if you'd like to and the view from the first floor... More
