Varma was my home for over a week at the end of a five week stay in India. I stayed there the middle of May which is the slow season building to the Monsoon. Kovalam is deserted that time of year and the climate is very humid and hot. When I told people in the north I was headed south... More

I stayed in this hotel in mid April. Undeniably, the hotel looks great, albeit being a small hotel. There's great view of the beach and the sea from the room, and you can even hear the lapping of the waves from the room. However, the room is sticky and sandy. I feel so disgusted to set my bare feet in... More

We were looking for a be beachy spot for our last 5 days in India and decided to try Vijaya. There were some unflattering reviews on another site and we emailed Vijaya to ask about them. We were assured that any issues had been resolved and we were under no obligation to stay if we weren't totally satisfied after inspecting... More

We first stayed at another hotel at Kovalam Beach, which we didn´t like so much. So we went for a walk and found the charming Vijay Varma Beach Resort. So we moved and were really very, very confident with cleanliness and service. Our room was on the first floor and had a nice balcony viewing the palmtrees and the chipmunks... More

Little gem in a touristy area. I loved the balcony and the great sea view from the room. The private beach (shared with a few other nearby properties) helps beat the crowds - quiet, clean, perfect for a dip in the warm waters. The manager, Sarah, was super-helpful with our requests.

Resort is on prime location and have good view of ocean from rooms (especially top floors). Very neat rooms with good balcony view and friendly staffs. Especially we were touched with Sara (or Sarla), the staff manager who was available to answer all the questions and that with a friendly smile. They also served our special needs of our group...

We stayed here for 2 nights. We were 4 people (2 couples) and occupied 2 sea-facing AC rooms on the first floor. The rooms were very clean and had very nice beach views as promised. The resort and a couple of others share a private beach which is 200 meters from the resort. This beach is very clean too and... More

The location is nice though, besides the way they speak to the customers is very sweet and delightful, yet the service is too very horrible. The Quality of Service and Maintenance is worst. Been in the room for 4 days and 3 nights, everyday the housekeeping staff will enter the room for cleaning, guess what, they never change the towels,... More
