Cheap, clean and peaceful place to stay. They need to change the bedding. The covers are smelly. But rooms are clean. Staff is friendly and truthful. I left my camera bag which was returned while check-out. Nice shuttle service available and is very timely.

Sunrise point is at a walking distance. Overall a nice experience. Very comfortable with lots of greenery. Food quality is not good as this is run by private owner. Overall... More

We stayed 3 Nights and covered almost all nearby attractions by private cab. Sunrise from vivekananda kendra is additional choice, lovely atmosphere. There is TTD booking counter inside the property which... More

Stayed in the 'ashram' in 2011. I felt It could have been a very nice experience if we had time to hang around the property for few more days but we were here for just one night proceeding further to Kovalam. The Kendra itself has a very nice atmosphere. Deluxe cottages are very nice (and although the AC wasn't working... More

This is not your usual commercial hotel. You dont have online booking facility, you may have to mail them. No Room service. There is no multi cuisine restaurant inside. But still, its a lovely place to stay. Make sure you go for the cottage. They are the best. Its a proper 2BHK. Plush green campus. Great place to live and... More

So we enquired and somebody suggested us this Kendra. We took a room. Room is not clean. There is a canteen inside and food is not great, normal idli, vada... More

This is an ideal place for people wanting to reflect on the life and teaching of Vivekananda. The site is scattered with quotations and pictures, and there is an informative museum. Our accommodation was simple but comfortable and the ability of the canteen staff to feed large numbers of pilgrims and visitors is impressive. It wouldn't do for anyone wanting... More

If you go to Kanyakumari, the Kendra should be one of the places on the sight-seeing list! Going to Kanyakumari and not visiting the Kendra just does not make any sense! This place is more for a person who likes to live in natural, tranquil and green surroundings. Do not expect any sho-sha, television disturbances or wi-fi etc. Just go... More
