Dr. Rajan and his wife, biotechnical professionals, have developed a lovely, super clean and harmonious guest hotel as a kind of hobby. Their professional offices are also in the same building. Be sure to read the two page flyer about their avocation. Great experience, and very friendly atmosphere. The grounds are maintained so well too.

Definitely the best place in the area + great value for your money. We are a young couple and stayed in 5 star hotels before in India and this home stay ran by Dr. Rajan offered us the same quality service as the one we received at a 5 star hotel for 5 times less the price. Try eating on the terrace, ask him for lunch or dinner, food was amazing! The room with yellow walls was fantastic, with everything one needs, clean and new. The place is noise free since it's located in a quite residential area. Overall, a fantastic experience and I will be staying here for sure next time I'm in the area.

Our family of 5 visited Kerela in mid January 2014. Before leaving we were supposed do all the bookings. Was confused regarding booking hotel in Trivandrum, when we came across this new hotel by the name of Vasudevam Premium Suites. Looking at the reviews, we had blindly booked the hotel.
Our initial thoughts on our choice for hotel were average, as we had to travel around 3-4 kms from the main road to reach the hotel in night.
But Once we reached there on the 15th Night, we were warmly greeted by Dr. Rajan, the hotel manager. He helped us to chalk out our program for next 2 days and guided us very well. His cook was on leave for 2 days, so he got breakfast for us in the morning from his home. Dr. Rajan and Dr. Priya are very friendly people and are wonderful hosts.
The stay was very comfortable and very homely. The theme and design of the hotel is very unique. They just need to increase a helper or two, to manage their services in a better way..
In short a very nice option for all those looking for a value for money, homely accommodation.
We loved the experience.. Thanks - team Vasudevam !!

Room Tip: If you want a room with Kitchenette, please give a prior intimation to Dr. Rajan.

We picked Vasuvedam for our stay in Trivandrum, because of favorable reviews on tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. The place is very well maintained, roomy, airy, and spotlessly clean; the bed is comfortable; and Rajan is a wonderful host--friendly, interesting to talk with, and always ready to answer our questions. He also ably guided us to places to see in the area, and, in fact, created our sightseeing itineraries and arranged for local transport. We were not disappointed.

Room Tip: Each unit has a different color theme. Choose a color you like.

The Stay at Vasudevam was memorable as the place is lovely, food is homely and staffs are friendly.

The well maintained suite and every approachable Mr Rajan was the unique of the stay. I am sure people stayed there would repeat again.

We stayed two nights in December, and found Dr. Rajan and his wife to be very helpful and friendly hosts. They sorted out our booking when we were having trouble booking through hotels.com, and made our stay comfortable from start to finish, providing local information, sorting out minor issues with auto rickshaw drivers trying to overcharge us etc. When our son was unwell, Dr. Rajan even went himself to the chemist at night to get us medicines.

The suites themselves are very nicely decorated, and comfortably furnished. The bathroom was big, with running hot water and a great shower. You also get a refrigerator and a cooking hob. Our kids were tired after long days at the beach and did not want to go out for dinner, so we just made Maggi noodles. A hot climate like Trivandrum really needed the cooling of the a/c and the chilled water from the fridge all the time. I really found hilarious that another reviewer complained about thin blankets – anyone who finds Trivandrum cold needs to get medical examined.

Breakfast is served on the terrace every morning, south Indian food prepared fresh. One small suggestion I would make is to keep bottled fruit juice handy for at least families with small kids. We were told that they only make fresh juice so if we had asked for it the day before they would have made sure to buy fruits. The worthy desire for serving everything fresh and homemade sometimes clashes with modern conveniences we’ve all got used to, so keeping some bottled stuff as a backup is not a bad idea.

The location is out of the main city area, but since the city is quite compact, you don’t need more than 15-20 minutes to get to the city centre, either by local bus or auto-rickshaw. However, you will find that auto-rickshaw drivers from the city will try to charge you double the fare (return fare) to drop you here as it is outside the city area. But the fares are quite low here compared to Delhi so it’s not a big deal.

Since the hotel is located south of the city, it is very convenient to travel to Kovalam beaches, as you just need to travel a short distance to get to the southbound highway from Trivandrum to Kovalam.
