The Hotel Neelakanta sits on The Lighthouse Beach in Kovalam l, Kerela. India. Its location could not be beaten standing between the lighthouses with just the promenade between door and beach. The room we stayed in overlooked the pool and beach and was pleasant and big with very big doubke bed and sofa and chairs with bistro set on balcony.... More

The Neelakanta was the last stop on a tour round the southern half of the beautiful state of Kerala and made for a great Xmas vacation. The vehicle-free promenade means you may need hotel help to wheel your luggage from the end of the precipitous road leading down to the beach. I had a large, clean, en-suite room overlooking the...

We enjoyed our stay at The Neelakanta. It is right on the beach and the pool is situated in a very nice relaxing way that keeps the people selling items away. If in this area of Kerala again we would definitely book our stay at the Beach Hotel Neelankanta

We last stayed at Neelakanta on the Millennium Newyear eve. After 1 1/2 decades the hotel has same looks. Got Room 108 facing the beach. Comfortables rooms at moderate tariff. Good service especially at the reception. In house restaurant Fish Hoek , with free breakfast. Free WiFi would have been an inspiration. Small but clean infinity pool on the first... More

This is a beach hotel. There is no direct road connectivity to the hotel as it's beach facing. One needs to walk down almost half kilometer along the beach to access the hotel. However, the walk is worth the beauty of the beach. The Hotel staff was courteous. Cleanliness was good. They have their own pool as well. Tip: Take... More

The Booking Dot Com web site showed a beautiful room with a ocean view but I got was a room with a view of a dumpster and dumping ground. Be careful when you book because many rooms do not have air conditioning. Poor room maintenance. The 19 inch TV did not work, the fan had no speed control, and the... More

Looking back at all the beach resort stays I've had in my life, Hotel Neelakanta was the most memorable and the most enjoyable one so far, because of reasons, more than many. The fact that the hotel was bang on the beach, was a very new experience to me. The rooms and the service they offered was very heart-warming. Nothing... More
