We traveled in February, so it was quite hot in Kanyakumari. Even otherwise the AC rooms are the best option here. Most other type of rooms offered are not well maintained and not suitable especially for a family. It has an expansive campus to take strolls. You will enjoy staying here better if you have any kind of spiritual objective... More

Kanyakumari was part of my solo backpack 12 days trip and the 3rd stop after Thrissur and Trivandrum. A must on anyone's wish list it offers magnificent sunrise and sunset over the sea. The Vivekanand Rock Memorial and the Museum are fascinating.

The campus is the strength. Do not look for luxury hotel stuff. It is more like an ashram stay with no TV's in room. No wifi either as far as I experienced. Aircon is good though and the rooms are spacious and functional. Don't expect shower and soap. But if you love Nature, this is the place to stay. The... More

Its the right place if you are looking for a clean, decent & Budget lodge. Worth for the tariff. Though there is a canteen inside but not good. Its just for a night stay is good nothing more than that advisable.

We had booked the non AC double bedroom at VK for 3 nights. The room was of a decent size and reasonably clean. The sheets however looked like they had not been washed. We had taken our own sheets so we used those instead. Toiletries and towels are not provided for non AC rooms so carry them. There is a... More

When visiting Kanyakumari, please stay at this Vivekananda Kendra Ashram. They have got good AC cottages at reasonable rates. Food given at Ashram also very good. Main attractive of staying here is you can see sun rise at their private/ashram beach. Clean, clutter-free beach. This place is in high demand, please book early.

This property rests among one of the most serene surroundings of the Vivekananda Kendra and centrally located. The rooms are spacious but lacks cleanliness and amenities. Given the price it is available for it is value for money. Free transport to city is available at regular intervals and sunrise point is very near from place of stay.
