Awesome location with its own stretch of semi private beach . Nice swimming pool overlooking the beach. Rooms need to be better maintained with some paint peeling off and some bathroom fittings broken

The hotel is really good. Especially the private beach and its staff is really polite. The lady manager was really very sweet..... The rooms are all sea facing but upper floor rooms r great with excellent view although the rooms on ground r well maintained. Its walking distance from kovlam and lighthouse beach

Hotel is beautifully located near the beach... But I think they can improve very much upon services. And the house keeping staff is Lil rude. Food is average .. Rooms are not modern style.. Can improve upon rooms and bathroom.. But the surrounding is awesome
