Soma Palmshore is good hotel - relatively inexpensive, clean, well maintained - but above all, very well managed. We had a family trip with my wife, child, sister, mom and her attendent shortly after my dad passed away, and Soma provided the right kind of environment to help us cope with the pain of his loss. Very relaxing, and surrounded by very friendly staff, particularly, the manager, Vivek, Raji in the front desk, and Ms. Anice, the ayurvedic doctor who really went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. We had two adjacent rooms, which are on par with any three star hotel in India, if not better. The sea-facing rooms have wonderful views, the restaurant is a bit pricey but the food, particularly the (complimentary) breakfast is very good. It's a short but steep 10 min downhill walk to the main beach (Hawa beach) in Kovalam - the trek back to the hotel can be difficult, particularly for elderly people. But, you can always take the massage when you get back! Ask for Ramu's taxi for sight-seeing. Safe driver, and a nice guy with good knowledge of the local and regional tourist spots. The Soma group has 2 other properties near Kovalam - Somatheeram and Manaltheeram (they will arrange for free transportation), which are slightly remote, but have great beaches and a modern "ashram" type setting, ideal for an ayurvedic experience.
