We stayed there in June 2015. We booked the AC deluxe room , the rooms get booked as soon as the window opens two months before. The food is okay but the stay is pretty close to city so you will have good options outside the Ashram . There is a private beach inside the kendra. you will come across... More

We stayed here just for one night but it was the most horrible night I ever stayed in any place. We took one double AC room, it was fairly clean and not within the so called forest area but just opposite to canteen which is very crowdy all the time including late night. The institute always welcome group booking but... More

I stayed in a cottage at this place. This is the only place in kanyakumari which is having serene environment, good accommodation and for every budget. It is necessary to book it early through its website. The centre has all type of rooms nd dormitories. The only negative point is the quality of food in the canteen and the hostile... More

A good value for money. Clean room & bathroom. A well maintained canteen with good food & reasonable price. Most important part is the free bus service to near jetty & return. Nature friendly atmosphere with peacock sanctuary, sunrise view point. The road to sunrise view point also eye-capturing. Happy staying.

If one is looking for peace, tranquility and green surroundings in Kanyakumari, undoubtedly, it is the perfect accommodation. The cottages have two air conditioned bedrooms each with attached large bathroom and a front lounge with sitting as well as... More
