I stayed here with my wife and toddler for just a night in the middle of a hectic trip to Kerala. I keep getting asked by friends what are good hotels other than the obvious choices to stay at while at Kovalam (Trivandrum is my fathers hometown), Now I know a good place to recommend - Turtle by the Beach.
I have often found that the standout sometimes is not just the hotel but the staff which goes out of their way to make even a nights stay very pleasant. Sure, all hotels suffer thru shortage of staff and complaints from guests, but to still keep smiling and helping is where Karan and his team of Soby, Aman and other staff stand out. We were well taken care of right at late check in and though it took a bit of time to get our room, it was perfect.
A Sea facing duplex with a great view from the balcony helped setup a nice relaxed evening taking in the sunset view. The location of the hotel is perfect on Kovalam beach and the sea facing view is worth every penny.
We had the buffet for both dinner and breakfast, there were a few regional dishes and a decent spread for both north Indian and Continental Food. Room Service is always happy to customize food items for you as well.
All that I can say is that if you are going to be living at the Kovalam beach, do plan to stay at the turtle on the beach and enjoy the experience.
