We stayed at Maharaju Palace for a few nights as we ended our journey through Kerala. The heat of Kovalam caught us by surprise but this place was a pleasant place to cool back down, secluded from the hustle and bustle of the beach area with a lovely garden to sit down and relax.

For two weeks I stayed in the cottage @Maharaju Palace and found it a haven in rather busy Kovalam. The whole place is very well kept, clean with tasteful rooms and garden. The managers Mathew and Raju take really good care of everything and everyone.

This lodging is wonderful. Right in the middle of the scene and yet somehow a little oasis. I would go on land on about how great it is, but I want to be able to book a room! I stayed in the adorable room by the lotus pond! That is MY room! xo enjoy your stay!

The complimentary airport pickup was very... More

The Maharaju Palace is a little gem away from the Light House beach front. Just 50 yards down and alley from the beach and main restaurants the hotel offers an oasis of calm with beautiful gardens and a peaceful surround. Rooms are clean and tidy and fitted out with a personal touch. The people who run it are friendly and... More
