Went here for my honeymoon in january end. Must say that it's an exellent property in kovalam with superb sea view! Rooms are spacious and nicely decorated. Room has a back door which opens at garden. And next to garden is a sea! Great at cleanliness and service. Food is not upto the mark.

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
