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

The room booking process is a bit cumbersome as Vivekananda Kendra is yet to go online.They prefer demand draft/money order sent towards room booking.During our stay we booked two double bedded a/c rooms per room rent being Rs.900 excluding the 10% luxury tax.The rooms at Kasi block where we were ,are spacious and the a/c and geyser were working fine.Multiple...

The first and foremost thing I would like to say about this place is that the environment here is spell bounding. Looks like you are in a township with all sorts of activities going on. They have a large number of rooms, still it might be difficult for you to get a booking on the instant. So, better get the... More

We stayed at Vivekananda kendra lodge for two days from 29th sept.2013. The best thing about this property, it is located in natural environment and away from the crowd which throngs Kanyakumari and the most popular 'sunrise' is seen from its exclusive beach.It is around 1.5kms from ferry station from where ferries take you to Vivekananda Rock Temple. Though we... More

A true place for peace of mind. Disconnect from the material world and rejuvenate yourself. A place with all basic amenities, needed for day to day simple life. A huge 100 acre campus offers a vide spectrum of activities, including peacock bird sanctuary to walk through. Simple vegetarian canteen offers healthy fare.
