We loved our stay. The meals on the terrace overlooking the Arabian Sea were great, the staff delightful, and the Ayurvedic massages were excellent. Our rooms were lovely and the gardens beautiful. We loved swimming in the Arabian Sea near the resort.

My wife, four friends and I have been there in December 2015/Jan. 2016. Thapovan is more an excellent recreation center and not just a hotel. Thapovan has a fantastic seafront location in a palm grove or A/C cabins uphill with a marvellous view over the ocean. We like to mention the arrangement of the individually “hidden” Bungalows under the palm... More

I booked this hotel after reading many good reviews on Trip about how amazing the hotel is but unfortunately apart from the good landscaping and view from the room everything else was disappointing. Our room was nice and clean (non a/c beach house) and had a good view of the sea. Beach was clean in patches as they are making... More

A beautiful setting, with fantastic views, but the bedroom was poor, looking very tired, and old furniture. Th beach could be fantastic but is about to be ruined by the emergence of a massive roadway approach to a new port being constructed just about 100m along the beach. We believe that about half of the complex will be acquired by... More

Thapovan is an ideal place in Kovallam having two properties, hill and on the beach. This place is mostly frequented by Europeans because of the German connections of the owner. Stayed in beach side cottage which was just 20m from beach and had a great sea view,the beach though is dangerous for children.The staff and food coupled with Ayurveda body... More

Perfect Location for a getaway, we stayed right near the beach. The food at restaurant was good but little costly compared to the others. Overall a good experience . One suggestion form my side : The beach cottages should also be provided with A/C as it gets really hot in the noon.

Only worth thing about the place is view, garden landscapping and the beach (which is as good as private).. Rooms are mediocre with mediocre amenities such as blanket instead of comforter and basic soap.. The day we checked in, it started raining at night and they didn't have enough umbrellas.. They told us that all the umbrellas were with other... More

We were at Thapovan from 20th to 22nd of Oct with our li'l kid. When we checked-in to the hotel, they upgraded us from Eagles Nest Room to the cottage. I found this funny as I had earlier wanted to book the cottage which was not available then. Pros: + Clean room with a view of the ocean downhill +... More

One big disappointment - I booked a beach cottage with sea facing view and paid a premium for it but we got a room which didnt have any sea view and it was some distance from Sea. In fact some of the cheaper room had better sea view. Overall property is good and service is nice..
