Nice hotel. Clean but a bit shabby in places. We stayed in one of the luxury rooms by the pool with a sea view. It had a thatched roof. Grounds were beautiful and well maintained. Restaurant ok reasonable prices and fast service breakfast was average. Pool had lovely ocean views. Private beach is nice but you have to pay for... More

I visited this hotel in January 2016 when we were on our honeymoon. It was good hotel but hotel facilities, bathroom odd colors tiles was average. People there were also very good in hospitalization. Location is good for the hotel with having private beach and good places to enjoy it. Overall a good place to enjoy.

We stayed between Jan 10th til 22nd. Enjoyed it all! We stayed in one of the cottages which were lovely, great air con unit, television to catch up on news! The cottage was kept really clean, could have maybe had a little more storage but we managed (took too many clothes as usual!). Lovely view from our little garden. We... More

Overall an average experience of the stay, however this hotel is expected to deliver better service as it terms itself a 3-star property. Pros:- 1) good and clean rooms- however the size of the room could be bigger 2) decent view of the sea... More

We arrived at 21.00hrs we were told by reception that the room we had been allocated had a problem with the Electrics. I asked them if it was... More

The Breakfast Buffet is a Complimentary and a reasonable spread of Indian dishes together with eggs, toast, preserves, butter, fruit and fresh juice. The menu is reasonably priced for a 3 star type hotel, and the food is well prepared. All rooms overlook the Sea. Resort is in a lush 2 acres plot. No elevator. About 22 steps between floors,...

We stayed here for 2 nights during our recent year end vacation to Kerala. Main focus of visit was the famous Ananthapadmanabha swamy temple at thiruvanathanpuram, but we thought of staying close to beach so that it will make kids spend time with water.

Veg buffet variety is pathetic. Veg food preparation is also worthless. Providing bathroom slipper is a luxury for them. They hate to provide tea making facility in the rooms. I feel cutting corner does not help in the long run.
