This was our first trip to Kerela and this hotel was everything we wished for. The staff were wonderful and could not do enough for us. The hotel was clean and well run. The restaurant was staffed by some very good young staff and the food was plentiful and well cooked and presented. The pool was clean and there were... More

Have been to Kovalam several times now and have always enjoyed the location and each hotel. This time was no different, its not right on the beach but there's a free beach drop service between 0800 and 1800 which takes moments and tuk-tuks cost less than 50p to get back up. We were extremely well treated in all aspects, the... More

We stayed here at the end of our time in India to have 6 days by the beach as our R&R at the end of a longish tour. We enjoyed the hotel, clientele was a mixture of European and Indians which gave a good atmosphere, especially in the morning with the Indian children playing in the pool. The first room... More

We visited this Hotel over the Easter weekend and generally were very disappointed. We especially booked this Hotel as the name implies, its on the Beach (which it is not) and in addition we booked a seaview room and got a room which should have been called Palm view, as all we could see was Palm trees with a blue...

What a superb hotel with the best staff we have ever encountered. One Travel guide described the hotel as Uber Hip and we were a little worried but it was fantastic lovely rooms with view of the Arabian sea on the biggest terrace of any hotel we've ever been too. Whilst there we celebrated our 45 wedding anniversary and the... More

We came here purely by accident as the hotel we originally booked had closed for the season (MOLLYS) and we were not informed. We were greeted by wonderful staff at reception who advised that we book via the internet to save money. This we did and so glad we did. Location is good. Just up the hill from the beach... More
