It totally depends on your preferences. Taj and Leela are some very good brands and you wouldn't have to worry much. Reviews at times might misguide you but look at the vintage of the reviewer before you consider that.

If you look at their websites, you can see that Surya samudra has a better location. But, the new management has a different style than the original concept.

If you look for luxury in style, go for Leela. But, Taj may have better offers by pricewise.

Hi,

My personal recommendation is to go for Taj Vivanta, Kovalam. They have excellent rooms and a small but nice lounge bar too. Leela Kovalam is also a good option.
