This was my favourite hotel out of the several I stayed at in India, and I had the best sleep here. It had great views and was located in a quiet area away from the nearby main strip. We also had a tasty English breakfast at the restaurant in the Rockholm Hotel that was right below the Aparna. I found... More

Our room was spacious and the bed linen and towels were changed daily. The mattresses and pillows were typical of Indian guest houses - hard! WiFi is intermittent, like the... More

Our room was on the first floor and we had wonderful views across to the sea over-looking palm trees. Charles was very kind and hospitable and the room was spacious and comfortable. The bathroom too was spotless and the balcony was the perfect place to sit and admire birds and fishing boats or just chill out and read a book.... More

Good wardrobe space with loads of hangers. Lights over bed for reading. Washing line provided on balcony with pegs. Fridge in room. Helpful, friendly staff.... More

Booked the Aparna close to a year a go thanks to that wonderful man Saj (@Sajhome Cochi) and so pleased we did. Direct email with Charles who always responded promptly. I'd requested a high room and Charles came up trumps. Room 8 near the top has dual aspect, superb rooms and a lovely balcony - check my shot of the... More

Aparna Guest House at Kovalam is a nice property. It is near to sea beach and the access is easy. The rate for upper floors is a little bit high than that of the ground floor. Any one may contact to this Guest house -- aparnaseaside@yahoo.co.in Phone Nos. +91 0471 2480950 & +91 0471 2480951

Charles, and his staff, were very accommodating to my stay here. I had a great room, #6, with a good view. The rooms are clean, tidy and relaxing with your own little balcony and a good view of the beach and other areas to the south. I had to delay my arrival twice and there was not problem with this...
