We arrived in March for what was to have been the grand finale of our trip to India, anticipating a relaxing beach-front oasis along the Arabian Sea. What we found was perhaps the most magnificent accommodations we had seen in the country, with a huge BUT: very noisy huge dredging equipment in the adjacent water and on the adjacent beach... More

We loved our stay. The meals on the terrace overlooking the Arabian Sea were great, the staff delightful, and the Ayurvedic massages were excellent. Our rooms were lovely and the gardens beautiful. We loved swimming in the Arabian Sea near the resort.

My wife, four friends and I have been there in December 2015/Jan. 2016. Thapovan is more an excellent recreation center and not just a hotel. Thapovan has a fantastic seafront location in a palm grove or A/C cabins uphill with a marvellous view over the ocean. We like to mention the arrangement of the individually “hidden” Bungalows under the palm... More

I booked this hotel after reading many good reviews on Trip about how amazing the hotel is but unfortunately apart from the good landscaping and view from the room everything else was disappointing. Our room was nice and clean (non a/c beach house) and had a good view of the sea. Beach was clean in patches as they are making... More

A beautiful setting, with fantastic views, but the bedroom was poor, looking very tired, and old furniture. Th beach could be fantastic but is about to be ruined by the emergence of a massive roadway approach to a new port being constructed just about 100m along the beach. We believe that about half of the complex will be acquired by... More

Thapovan is an ideal place in Kovallam having two properties, hill and on the beach. This place is mostly frequented by Europeans because of the German connections of the owner. Stayed in beach side cottage which was just 20m from beach and had a great sea view,the beach though is dangerous for children.The staff and food coupled with Ayurveda body... More

Perfect Location for a getaway, we stayed right near the beach. The food at restaurant was good but little costly compared to the others. Overall a good experience . One suggestion form my side : The beach cottages should also be provided with A/C as it gets really hot in the noon.
