The management team is admirably led by Biji Anand , who along with his staff , will go out of their way to make sure any request is dealt with quickly and efficiently . The hotel is the flagship of the Kerala Tourist Development Corporation and... More

Glad we chose this peaceful hotel set in pretty landscaped gardens. We stayed for three nights following a tour of Kerala. Spacious room with veranda, lovely view to the sea. Most comfortable bed of our trip. Reception staff friendly and helpful. There is a nice old fashioned, authentic feel to this hotel. Breakfast average - we were put off the... More

Very nice place to relax. All rooms offer great view of the sea. Beach is easily accessible and is beautiful beyond words. Biggest advantage is that this portion of beach is not crowded at all. Rooms are spacious and clean. Every room has a balcony which is a bonus. Beds are comfortable and linen is clean and fresh. Bathroom is... More

Decidedly the best located resort in Kovalam set among tall palms/coconut trees, right on beech. All rooms face seaside One an walk upto the beech easily to experience the sea and the activities. Everything about the hotel especially the landscape is very pleasant. Fare spread however is limited but that should not deter a discerning tourist. On the whole, great... More

Picturesque location, well maintained exteriors. So close to the beach you can almost hear the waves from your room. Rooms could use renovation. Food at the buffet at least for dinner was not great but the location makes up for it. Breakfast was much better. Staff is quick and prompt. Crowd is mostly foreigners. Enjoyable stay to sum it up.

Kavalam beach is just 2 min walkable distance from hotel. Excellent swimming pool and nice beach view from sea facing room. Lucky to get last room facing to beach, big and nice clean room. Good variety of food both at breakfast and lunch. Beautifully maintained lush green landscape and good surrounding to roam around during evening time.
