This has been my 2nd visit after 4 years to KTDC Samudra Resort, and I was pleasantly surprised to find the place in better shape. Last time it was good enough, but I think the management has spent a good deal of time implementing new ideas. Rooms are spacious and all face the sea. Both times I stayed on first... More

Ambiance - 10/10. Cleanliness - 10/10. Staff behavior - 5/10 should be improved. A mrng & late eve. walk in & around the hotel will revel the actual beauty of kovalam, which it hide beneath.... Only bad part is my experience with their front office, whom lacks some professionalism!!!

The location of the resort is the best of all resorts located near beach, The rooms are average, had basic necessities like TV tea stand and ac. The restroom was a bit old but clean and so was the building. Average food with some live music. But overall good for the price we paid.
