The hotel is absolutely lovely, extremely clean and 3 min walk from the beach. The rooms are nice and the people working there try to look after you as much as possible. It's a great value for money! Absolutely the best choice!!

We returned for another stay at the Aparna. The accommodation and service are always excellent. Charles and his team maintain a very high standard and they are very pleasant and helpful. The rooms are the cleanest we have found anywhere in India and the location is perfect for access to the beach.

The friendliness of the staff, the location and the great weather always make our holiday special.The rooms are serviced each day and most of them have superb views of the Arabian Sea. The Kovalam beaches are within easy walking... More

The location of this guest house cannot be beaten. The spacious shared balcony was lovely for relaxing with a book, and the short stroll down to the beach was very convenient. There are even tuk tuks waiting to ferry you back up the hill to the Aparna at the end of the day if your legs arent up to it!... More

I have stayed at Aparna several times, most recently January 2014. The staff, Charles, Satyan, Tilakum, and Babu, go out of their way to make my stay comfortable and enjoyable. The room is thoroughly cleaned every day (new sheets and towels, floor washed, windows cleaned), laundry is done perfectly and returned on the same day, room service is prompt, and... More

Myself and four friends enjoyed a peaceful and relaxing stay at Hotel Aparna. After a weeks stay in Kerala it was the perfect place to finish our travels. The main beach in Kovalam is a little intense but Hotel Aparna is perfect distance away from craziness and the beach to the left of the hotel is perfect for a morning... More

I've stayed at the Aparna several times. I didn't think it could get any better. It's clean, inexpensive and ideally located. However, this time I was delighted to discover I could have a pot of hot water for tea and filtered water for drinking delivered to my room free. (I always gave a nice tip) This allowed me to make...

This hotel has great rooms with a great view. The rooms were cleaned daily and the bathroom was the best we had. They have a geyser for hot water and the shower had a recessed floor so everything didn't get wet. They also supplied toilet paper and they give you a bottle of water on your first day. The rooms...
