Me and my husband stayed in Thapovan from 21st March till 24th March and the place is simply beautiful... The weather is a little hot compared to Jan - Feb and not all the rooms are AC. They have two properties - Hill view property and the beach view. Our pick was the beach view because we love the sea.... More

The staff are friendly, and all speak some english. The reception spoke very good english. The beach has a lifeguard that will guide you to where to go swimming and... More

This was so relaxing. We stayed for 3 nights in a beachside cottage with a fantastic view of the beach from the verandah. It was so peaceful and the noise of the waves on the beach through the night was an aid to sleep. The staff were very friendly and helpful, food good without being spectacular, no bar but beer...

Thapoven is real home for me, loving dearly all the staff. They are the best people you could ever meet , honest, warm, loving, devoted. Absolutely the best! They do their best to make you happy, in all way possible. The location, the treatments, the yoga teacher, all couldn't be better.

Andreas Heitmann, the German owner, is keen to ensure that each guest feels special. He greets each new arrival personally and ensures that everything runs smoothly. We stayed in the Teak House on the upper level and it was wonderful to have breakfast on the terrace, overlooking the bay. The rooms are great (if a little dark inside) and the... More

A complete serene place with a mix of Coconut Forest and Beautiful View of Arabian Sea. Authentic Ayurvedic massage aiming at a complete breakaway from the routine hectic life. Beach cottages make it perfect relaxing holiday.

first of all I will start by telling you a bit about the location of this place.....its perfectly located between kovalam and poovar island....so its quite easy for you to juggle between the two places....around 7 km away from kovalam and around 10 km away form poovar islands. ( by the way the best way to get around places is... More

I am really torn about this place. The environment and landscape is lovely ( beautiful gardens and beach side location), the food is great, the staff helpful and we had 2 excellent massages. But for me it was a disappointment. We had a beach cottage, one of the four directly adjacent to the beach. I found the room very dark... More
