I was there with my German husband for the 6th time! Been to other Resorts in Kerala but the "homely atmosphere", in the positive sence has made us return without regret to Soma Palmshore regularly. Very friendly Staff and the Operations Manager Ms. Chitra deserves a special thanks for keeping her alert eyes on all the Somatheeram Resorts. Thank You... More

High above its lovely gardens and pool overlooking the bay next to the main, overcrowded Kovalam bay, this could be a really good hotel. But it's scruffy and tired, as are some of the staff. Breakfast was OK but nothing special, certainly not enough to tempt us to dine there. And we wouldn't have done anyway, with so many good,... More

I was there 10 days back! The location is awesome. Each room faces the beach!!!!!!!!!!!!! There is a scope to improve the facilities in the rooms, but that's made up by the courteous staff members.All staffmembers right from reception to restaurant are so good, helpful, cooperative, no words to express. And the Manager Mr, Vincent with his vigilant yet cheerful... More

We stayed at this resort during our family vacation. Rooms: Average. If you prefer good deluxe rooms, you will be disappointed with the beds and décor of room and bathroom. Bathroom does not even have proper latch. Cupboards are broken and outdated! I would not even call this room as a Standard room forget Deluxe. However the room had good... More

This hotel has a great location, it opens up right on the beach! Has a very good pool and restaurant. A very peaceful place with the sounds of waves hitting the shore. A very courteous staff who will do everything to make you feel at home. I loved the Ayurveda massage centre there and took a "Rejuvenation massage". It's a... More
