The Resort is really good, as mentioned in almost every other comment it is split up into two. The lower one is at the beach and definitely the better of the two. There is no swimming pool or Air Conditioning. The resort is on a small property and there is not much to do. The restaurant is rather good. The... More

Had a wonderful two nights stay in Thapovan Heritage. Property is divided into two parts, upper one and lower one which is at the beach (I mean right at the beach!). There is a village road that can be accessed to go from lower part to upper part and vice versa. This is a steep 5-7 minutes walk, however a... More

This is an amazingly beautiful property right on the beach. Though the beach right in front is not a private beach it almost did look like that when we were there. We loved the food and the feel of the place very much. the beach cottages are non A/C but they provide with an extra fan if necessary. There is... More

One night stay at the hotel, but many memories to take home to ! The location of the hotel is superb. We were well-attended. Just some suggestions to the staff: - Kovalam is not a cool place. It can get humid and hot many times. Restaurant at the beach property did not have any fan or AC. We were literally... More

First things first, this is one of the best located hotel we have ever stayed. This resort is located almost 6/7 k.m away from kovalam beach towards poovar. If you want to go direct its better to book a cab through the resort,which will cost you around 900 INR as there is no such cab available around station/bus terminal. OR... More

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
