This resort near the beach at Kovalam is certainly one of the nicest in the area. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, and meals in the Catamaran restaurant were delicious. Our suite was clean and spacious, although in need of renovation; we had consistent problems with the air conditioning, and the mattress was worn out. We used the hotel's drivers for numerous trips around Trivandrum and the surrounding area, at 1800 rupees for four hours. I guess you could save a bit trying to find your own transportation, but I can't stand haggling with taxis, and we could never find a cars on Uber; the hotel drivers were friendly, professional and efficient. At the very least, pre-book airport transfer for your arrival. Our driver was waiting when we landed at the exhausting hour of 3 a.m. Best $25 we spent on the whole trip. As others have noted, the resort is not actually beachfront; the beach is a 5-10 minute walk down (and back up) a steep hill. But speaking of the water, be sure to book a room on the upper floors; the view of the sea from the top floors is amazing.
