Had stayed in KTDC in september. Had a good stay. Location of hotel is awesome with beach view. Property is well maintained. Dinner menu was OK. Room was also neat and clean with basic amenities. Plus point was the attached balcony which offers a great view of resort and beach.

We actually stayed here a few years ago now and don't know why I never reviewed it sooner but here we go. Kerala, what a fantastic place, doesn't feel like your average tourist destination. The hotel was a lovely old colonial type building with lovely grounds, nice pool and direct access to the beach. Sea quite choppy but warm if... More

Kerala Tourism Development Corporation (KTDC) owns and runs this hotel.Ideally located on the beach with well maintained lawns this is a good place to stay @of around Rs.5000.00. The high end hotels charge 10000 to 20000 per day. Ideal location, good service, nice rooms and you enjoy here

We have recently returned from our first trip to India. The KTDC Samudra hotel was our first experience of Indian hospitality. We were not disappointed. We were able to upgrade to a premier room, which was well worth the extra cost. It was large and had a wonderful view of the Arabian sea. This hotel is equivalent to a standard... More

The hotel is located on the Samudra beach and every room offers sea view. But rooms on first floor offers partial view whereas rooms starting with 20 offers the best view. Rooms are very neat and clean. The lawn is a big plus. Kids enjoyed playing there. Swimming pool is also well maintained. We found food expensive, but there are... More

Its a great place to chill out. Nice landscaped garden and is right next to the sea so you get the lovely winds with that salty & humid feel. Food is not so great, but the staff is really nice. The beach, which is few meters from the hotel, is pretty small but good to spend sometime with friends and... More

Beach location is being fantastically used by KTDC, sound of waves is audible from balcony of deluxe room, best place to enjoy kovalam beach. Staff is also good & cooperative. Food is ok needs some improvement but after all it is a grt beach hotel.

One of the most beautiful locations I visited nice staff and food. Breath taking view and safe for solo traveller. The small shacks near the hotel serve good food. It's heaven if you get a sea facing 1st floor room. Clean and well kept property.
