We went to the hotel with less expectation, as the same is held by KTDC..But to our surprise rooms were fairly neat except for the two cockroaches which we saw the bathroom. The rate of food was on a higher side comparing it to the quality...The room service staff were good as they even came and cleaned the room at... More

We were here with family and stayed here for 3 nights. The booking was done in advance and was a bit worried how the property would turn out. I was impressed at first sight and no regrets at all. The property is well maintained, landscaped garden, swimming pool and all rooms face the beach. The beach can be approached from... More

This hotel, maintained by the Kerala Tourism is an ideal place to enjoy the fullness of the beauty of Kovalam, the enchanting beach destination. Set in inspiring environs, every room of the hotel overlooks the sea and the sprawling lawn stretches upto the beach. In its very design, location and ambience, it captures the essence of the sun, the sand... More

Samudra KTDC was a revelation and though value for money was a key plus, the mesmerising view this beach resort offered was incredible - much beyond what I expected from a KTDC hotel. The hotel has direct access to the beach which was very wonderfully convenient. The room tips given in the previous reviews on tripadvisor came in handy while... More

Ideal place to stay at Kovalam. Has its own private beach, but the shore is less and Bit rocky... Rooms are good. Best to opt for Premium rooms (Only 2 available). All rooms are facing the sea. Room service - Very Good Facilities - Very good. Swimming Pool - Very Good. Food - Good. HighLight: Has an Ayurvedic Massage Centre,... More

Samudra is undoubtedly one of the best hotels of Kovalam, owned by KTDC. The USP of the hotel is the beautiful location, giving the guest full advantage of a beach hotel. Location: Samudra is in the center of Kovalam, located at a distance of 16 KM from the city of Trivandrum. Very easily approachable. Major attractions: Kovalam beach is the... More

We stayed as a family of 3 adults & a 2 yr old kid in May 2015 after reading trip advisor reviews of the property being in an excellent location. We had pre-booked a deluxe room almost a month in advance but still had to wait for more than an hour to finally check-in. The rooms are small, the floor... More

Stayed here for a week in the off-season (May). Breakfast included and was adequate though selection was not too broad. Rooms are tile floored and kept clean. The rooms are a little older but quite acceptable. Rooms were very comfortably air conditioned. Great views over the beach and ocean and the grounds are very nicely kept. Staff were always friendly.

Being a government property the location of hotel is mind blowing . You can spend hour just laying on lush green lawn with a beer and your favourite book with sound of waves in backdrop. Just experience and feel the nature and relax.
