It's one of the best location to stay at Kovalam, with private beach (little bit away from main beach). Rooms are big in size with sea view balcony but beds are not comfortable to sleep. Stayed during Christmas holiday with family, foods are very average and as it was within package so we had no other choice. But resort is... More

I stayed here 2 nights in July in a sea facing room on ground floor. Comfortable stay. Restaurant offers Continental and Asian options. Buffet breakfast can be made better. Beware of insects creeping on the floor. Location is advantage. Beach is close by providing beautiful view from room.Rooms spacious.

I stayed in march with family.The most important advantage of this property is the location. It has the best location in kovalam and its own private beach.No other property can match it on these points.However other aspects like food , service are average.You can stay here and go out for food.there are pretty good hotels nearby like uday samudra......

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.
