This hotel has the best view of the beach. Moreover, it has it's own beach and the view from the rooms is just amazing. All the rooms are beach facing!!! The hotel belongs to KTDC and hence is not very expensive. One of the best stays in Kovalam.

My family and I stayed for three nights in April. Positives - the views of the sea and the gardens are amazing. Rooms are a good size. Negatives - some staff lack basic English skills making communication often difficult. Staff did not wear name badges of uniform at times making it hard to know who to talk to. Staff were... More

Very good location, very good rooms, good food, but requires Maintenance of the hotel. View of the sea is wonderful. Of course March isn't a good time. May winter is a good season. Beach attached to the resort isn't worth enjoying. But adjoining beach isn't too far, I which is good one.

We stayed there in the month of March'14 and it was undoubtedly one of my most comfortable stays. Rooms: 1. The rooms are quite spacious and clean and nicely decorated with a cozy bed. 2. Each room has a... More

This hotel which is on the Samudra Beach which is a very quiet beach away from the noisy people in south India.The huge property with its landscaped gardens is a clear indication that even though its a Government run property it still is comparable to the Five stars nearby.The location is just to die for for.The pool area is awesome...

Resorts, Room, Ambience ---------------------------------- This gets an easy 4.5 out of 5. The rooms are planned in a way that most rooms have a view of the sea. You wake up looking at the waves in the ocean. The pool is very good. The topology of the resort itself is so very beautiful. From any part of the resort, you... More

There are times when the travel agents understand the mood of the group and make a judicious decision.In our case he has cut the corners in such a way that in the previous night we were not too happy with his selection of a hotel at Kanyakumari where we just spent a day.He had made it up in such a...

Very relaxing and scenic location with private beach. The pool is great, and so is the garden lawn, where you can have dinner under the moonlight. Take the sea facing cottage if you can. The ayurvedic massage is also great.

We stayed in the superior room and the stay was just beautiful. The main plus point of the hotel is its location i.e. just infront on the kovalam beach. The beach appears to be a private one without much rush. The only cons of the hotel is its food quality. If it was good i would have been given it... More
