I arrived here expecting white sand beach and a beautiful hotel. Firstly my taxi driver had never heard of hotel neither had anyone on the bay as their name is displayed as 'Neeklanta' or something. I arrived and they showed me to a room that had bathroom windows that wouldn't shut (mosquitoes able to swarm as soon as showered). The... More

Its just an eyewash, be warned. I went in with so many good expectations and a mood to have fun in Kovalam. but this place just ruined everything, we had to manage everything on our own, be it arranging drinking water or getting meals from nearby restaurants ( as the in house restaurant TANDOOR has closed down-which the manager never...

Just one guy on the reception who is supposed to manage everything and in the process is found sleeping most of the time. NO ROOM SERVICE. NO RESTAURANT Although there are many restaurants down...

Whilst the view is amazing, the rooms are small and awkwardly arranged - I had an overflow pipe going into a bucket in my room. And the basin in which to wash your hands is in the room, not the bathroom. Both my friend and I had dead flies covering our beds from the air con being turned on, the... More

Review has been written by a spiteful customer who was unwilling to stay in the room she had initially booked and was asking for a higher class room (one with a wider view with 2 french windows) for the same price, which was not acceptable. Hence after a lot of haggling and indecent behavior with the staff, she asked for... More

We love this place to wake up to a breathtaking view of the beach right from bed itself. We have stayed in other rooms along this beach earlier, but the views from the balconies of these rooms are amazing. To the left is a rocky hill towered by the light house and a sandy beach from rocks below, curves all... More
