Everything would be great, but hotel located next to temple that plays super loud music and chants during festival times for 18 hours a day (from 6AM to midnight). You would not be able to sleep if you are not deaf. And festival can go for week in duration (for all 6 days that we have been there at least).... More

This is a great hotel, lovely pool, good service and pleasant rooms. But the huge drawback, if you are not entirely fit, is the climb up from the rooms in the 100s. We had 117 which meant 4 flights ip of steps before getting to the hotel and then another two to the pool/dining area. Our plan was then to... More

This is the nicest hotel in Kovalam we thought, as the location is high enough to provide lovely views across the Arabian Sea from the tempting infinity pool and restaurant area, where the excellent staff are always on hand to help you with towels for the pool and sunbeds. There are a variety of restaurants to choose from which are... More

The bait restaurant is good... More

This was a perfect spot after 2 weeks of hectic travelling through North India. The location is very private with lots of greenery around. The only disappointment was it was not right on the beach. However, from the pool area it is extremely picturesque. The service from the warm welcome on arrival to the pool attendent to the staff in... More
