Best Hospitality, Best Food, Best Staff.... More

I have visited this place three times over the years, and keep on returning. It is a nice, peaceful and relaxing place with all the needed services. It is situated far enough from the hurdle of Kovalam, but still close enough to provide a good base for day trips to Trivandrum and its surroundings. I can recommend to people looking... More
