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

Delightful rooms, big and spacious with good bathroom. We had a 'cottage' overlooking the sea and gardens, which was wonderful. Lovely big verandah to sit out on. Aircon not needed as cool breeze through the windows and great fan. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Great welcome, great food, Ayurveda treatment was wonderful experience. Only downside were the beach traders but... More

This is situated in Trivandrum, 6 kms from Kovalam. The resort opens up to a private beach which is mostly uninhibited! What was great about this resort was that it was very very well kept. Lush green trees and plants everywhere! Just walking around the resort itself was such a bliss. The staff here were very very friendly. Everyone from... More

We had an enjoyable one night stay at the beachside bungalow surrounded by immaculately kept tropical gardens. The bed was comfortable and room spacious. Breakfast was great - Indian style...puris and dosais. Downside, there was no wifi available beachside which would have been great for skyping friends and rolling the cameras to show off the serene surroundings. I mentioned magnetic... More
