We stayed at Aparna for a week at the start of our holiday and for a week at the end. It is such a nice place. We stayed in the top flat, with kitchen and huge big windows looking out on coconut trees and the Arabian sea. it costs a little more but SO worth it . We had difficulty...

The location of this guest house cannot be beaten. The spacious shared balcony was lovely for relaxing with a book, and the short stroll down to the beach was very convenient. There are even tuk tuks waiting to ferry you back up the hill to the Aparna at the end of the day if your legs arent up to it!...

I have stayed at Aparna several times, most recently January 2014. The staff, Charles, Satyan, Tilakum, and Babu, go out of their way to make my stay comfortable and enjoyable. The room is thoroughly cleaned every day (new sheets and towels, floor washed, windows cleaned), laundry is done perfectly and returned on the same day, room service is prompt, and...

Myself and four friends enjoyed a peaceful and relaxing stay at Hotel Aparna. After a weeks stay in Kerala it was the perfect place to finish our travels. The main beach in Kovalam is a little intense but Hotel Aparna is perfect distance away from craziness and the beach to the left of the hotel is perfect for a morning...

I've stayed at the Aparna several times. I didn't think it could get any better. It's clean, inexpensive and ideally located. However, this time I was delighted to discover I could have a pot of hot water for tea and filtered water for drinking delivered to my room free. (I always gave a nice tip) This allowed me to make...

This hotel has great rooms with a great view. The rooms were cleaned daily and the bathroom was the best we had. They have a geyser for hot water and the shower had a recessed floor so everything didn't get wet. They also supplied toilet paper and they give you a bottle of water on your first day. The rooms...

Having stayed in Kovalam numerous times, we can definitely say that Hotel Aparna is by far the best experience we have had. The rooms are big, bright and spacious with comfortable balconies and amazing views. The balconies are especially good for relaxing and reading a book (from the well-stocked hotel library!). The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly without being...

One of the best places we stayed at during our trip. Offered a huge luxury room at a very good price. We stayed here three nights and didn't look anywhere else. The bathroom was big and the balcony allowed us to dry off our washing and sit and relax at night watching the waves crash against the lighthouse rocks. Power...
