No room amenities!!! Yes ! no television, no refrigerator, no a/c, not even a electric kettle I asked the manager and he said his boss is a German and he believes that these are distractions.

Generally, Kovalam including the beaches is commercial but this is located around 3km away in a quaint little corner. I guess that's what makes it so special. It is definitely one of the best places to stay and experience coastal India with its food, climate and with a pleasant dose of culture. The rooms, the wonderful view and the beautiful... More

Memories of Thapovan are something we run to, even today one year later, when we want to visualise a place of peace and calm. We discovered this gem through a friend who is a travel agent. Truly an unpublicised wonder. Our honeymoon here was only 2 days long but really really worth it. We stayed at the sea-front property. The... More

It is a ayurvedic resort.... So you will not get luxury rooms here. But look and feel of rooms is heritage, which is good. Best thing about this place is its awesome food and wonderful location with a private clean beach with blue-green colored sea, which looks beautiful.... Beach is just awesome. There are 2 properties, Hill side and sea... More
