Whenever I travel South Kerala, I stay at Palmleaves. Its simply the best place to relax.
The beach so close that I had a clear view of the sea and the sun in the evenings.
It has a pool with crystal clear water.
Its beautifully maintained, perfect location, friendly and helpful staff.
superb food especially fish dishes are mouth-watering.

The hotel was very nice staff were very friendly. room were very basic no matching bed linen or furniture. The hotel has brand new swimming pool which very inviting.. The hotel is near the sea which is only 5min walk.It is bit far from the shopping centre . you have to take rickshaw to go .Rames and Manju are very helpful and friendly always very obliging.
The hotel on the left side looks like a bulders yard all jobs half done but on the right side of the hotel is very nice,, you cannot walk on the ground bare foot as there is too much rubbish and also we found razor blade in the sand. beach is bit dangerous due to broken bottles and fishing nets.Manger of the hotel is very religious, we had bible lesson for our breakfast which was not appreciated, food got better when the new chef arrived. but I ate chappitt and curd as i was sick 2nd day of my stay.overall we had 4weeks stay which we enjoyed it.

my stay at palm leaves with family in trivandrum ,INDIA was a pleasent experience
with good memorable experinces. The ambience of the hotel makes it exellent
by the serving mentality of the staff & owner of this hotel. You feel comfort & secure
, the wheather and the sunset evenings were awsome.

If again I get a chance to visit kerala, my choice of stay will be in palm leaves for sure.
wishing all out there good luck & best wishes.

Room Tip: rooms facing the beach is very comfortable

The room is spacious but the bed is old. The food is tasty but no choices .There is no room service, no telephone, no near by restaurant .There is lots and lots of mosquitoes comes to visit you only at night. You can get the internet signal only in their restaurant area. The manager, the waiter,etc are one and only person who takes care of all your needs. At times there is current failure also.
The beach is very near and they also have a swimming pool . you can,t get any view of the beach from room since coconut trees hiding them.
The things you can do here sleep, playing in beach and swimming. The house(resort) is away from city life and silents in the air .IT IS NOT JUST LIKE HOME ,IT IS A HOME .

Room Tip: The room in the ground floor facing the pool.

On the outskirts of Trivandrum, Palmleaves provides a peaceful oceanfront escape from the city's noise and hurry. The owner has a wonderful demeanor and imparts that good vibe to the whole establishment. The pool is brand new (completed this winter) and is set between the rooms and the sandy beach, nestled between towering palms (carefully trimmed to keep guests safe from falling coconuts). There is also a new baby pool that is perfect for young children. The hotel itself is either brand-new or remodelled. The very best rooms are the ones at the end that have full views of the ocean from inside the room as well as on the balconies. Other rooms have views from the balconies, but not as good from inside the rooms.

Palmleaves is for people on leisure, to spend time with nature as it is in rural Kerala, experiencing Kerala village life. Our guests can see the fishermen at work every morning in-front of our beach and may join them in fishing.Fresh fish can be bought from them to be prepared for your taste. We have a newly constructed open restaurant just on the beach among palm trees, and it is thatched with coconut leaves. There are not any other such facilities in Trivandrum and it is great to read a book or enjoy the sea, sunset sitting in the open restaurant when you are served fresh home cooked cuisine.
