Awesome sea view. Great organized lawn. Room service good. Near Light house, easy to access light house beach. Restaurant is very expensive. But food is good. Spacious room. Balcony sea view. *** Strongly Recommend. Best place to enjoy Arbian sea at Kovalam beach.

Right on the beach, our room had a lovely sea view. The staff were friendly and efficient. The hotel was well maintained and comfortable. We spent a lot of time relaxing on the hammock and enjoying our tea in the sea facing balcony. A good place to stay in Kovalam.

This hotel is right on the tip of the wonderful Kovalam beach. If you happen to take the sea-view room, you won't regret the extra cost. It provides clear views of the sea, the beach and some rocks! The restaurant is reasonably decent and the service is also ok, even if not charming. The resort has enough open spaces for... More

Property is awsome in terms of location. Samudra beach is just beside the hotel and in terms of location it can give tough competition to other 4/5 Star hotels in Kovalam. Stay is good with warm hospitality from the staffs. Swimming pool is well maintained. My 4 year old son was quite happy with the pool for children. Restaurant is... More

We selected this Hotel basis the facilities offered at the given price...in that context it was a wise decision...! This State run KTDC property gives competition to any 4-5 star Hotels in Kovalem with a significant advantage of being in front of famous Samundra beach. It was delight to see that a govt. run Hotel was being run in such... More

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

Good location, fantastic view of the beach but needs serious attendtion as to how to manage a hotel...Good food but no service to write home about....I can fairly say that this a value for money hotel if you dont expect too much..
