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.

Good place to stay ith family. Not really meant for honeymoon couple as it is a Ashram. Budgeted rooms. I booked AC Double bedded rooms (900 each) + 10% tax. Clean rooms with basic stuff provided like towel and soap. Every room has attached bathroom with hot water facility (not every room has a Geyser attached, so inquire before you... More

I stayed for a day in Vivekanand ashram in a cottage. Concept and the location is indeed excellent. It is a green campus with birds and smaller animals around. Peaceful and calm. I recommend people to stay here. The issue which spoilt our trip was due to one staff. Previous evening he promised that he would accompany us to the... More

We visited Vivekananda Rock with family. The place is very nice and clean. The waves and the breeze was amazing. Public toilet is a serious let down. It's worth visit for once. Nearby is the Triveni Sangam where Indian Ocean, Arabian Sea and Bay of Bengal meet. Overall it's worthwhile to spEnd a day in Kanyakumari.

This is entirely based on my personal experience. Vivekanda kendra is the best place if someone is looking for peaceful and calm stay. tariff against the room category is very low. If you book Rs.2000+tax cottage two families can easily be accommodated. Cottages have dining table with utensils, fridge,tv, two rooms with A/C-attached bath, one huge room with sofas, seat...

There is always a long queue and one may have to wait almost 2-3 hours before one can get in ferry. However , one can buy lesser know VIP pass or... More
