The best thing happened with me was my sea view rooms were upgraded with sea view cottages, & we were very much delighted with that. The cottage rooms are very big , spacious , clean & well maintained, Only thing is that since it is rainy season & the hotel is located right on the beach & full of garden... More

The best thing about this hotel is its private beach which is only accessible to the hotel guests as both sides of the beach is blocked by rocks. The rooms are pretty average and for a 1-2 nights stay is not bad. The breakfast & dinner buffets are decent, however, the a la carte dishes are not that good. Staff... More

The best part of this hotel is the location. You have a very beautiful view of sea from the hotel. This is ayurvedic resort and since we did not take any ayurvedic treatment cannot comment much no these. Almost all rooms are sea facing and since it was off season, most rooms were empty. We had booked a standard room.... More

Incomparable view of sea from all rooms. The best is everything from food, rooms, ac,washrooms, balcony. Best is swimming pool , you can see the sea while standing in the pool. But do take your swimming costumes as they are particular. Wi fi is the weak part. Doesn't work in rooms.

My wife, sons and me stayed at the Soma Palmshore in May 2015. We had 2 sea-facing Delux Rooms for 2 Nights. The rooms are spacious and the Balcony area is outstanding. The sea views are unforgettable! However, the rooms are very much in need of a renovation. The Refrigerator was rusting; the outdated CRT Television set needs to be... More
