The location is fantastic, just be sure to ask for a sea-facing room which can give you an amazing view of the Vivekanand Rock Memorial, the vast Indian Ocean, and the sunrise and the sunset too. You really don't need to go out for the sunrise n the sunset if you get such a room. The rock memorial ticket counter... More

Fair sized, clean rooms. Nice balconies with sea views. Decent breakfast included. Good location. Kanyakumari is a busy temple town, with a far few bars and resturants. 200 words seems to be a lot I'm sure I have written that many, if how ever you don't post my review this time that is it.

This hotel did have a good location but that was all. We stayed here because it advertised that it had WiFi. However, the signal is so weak I could only use it in the lobby - certainly not what I wanted. The room looked good on first inspection but to get water in the sink, one had to turn the... More

Nothing appears unusual at first here. The room tariff appears to be justified when u book on its looks found on the net. Then comes it location - great, so near to sea and you don't even need to go outside for viewing sun rise - vow. But then the shine starts fading slowly, the layers start coming off continuously....

We found Hotel Sun World quite nearby and reachable to all main attractions in Kanyakumari. we were two families and got two adjacent rooms on 3rd floor. The rooms were quite spacious and clean. Hot and Cold water was available, a Balcony to get a... More

Stayed one night, and the room felt like Sun World, so hot. That said would have been fine if I had booked A/c. Clean room with balcony, could not have asked more for the money I paid. Restaurant is fine but will not win awards. Kanyakumari is a great place to visit as it's so unique but beware it's full... More
