This is one of those reviews that never should be published. Why tell the rest of the world that paradise is available? They will only try and get in there, pushing up the price, changing the ambiance.
Well here we go:
Paradesh Inn sits high in the valley overlooking the coconut palms and the sweep of Kovalam bay. The building is new and built to European standards. The style is Greek islands, white and blue exterior. A large roof terrace with a view to die for. The rooms are designed after the different elements in the Hindu Pantheon, fire, air etc. The host couple Mauro and Marina (Italians who have a deep love and respect for Indian culture), are the most engaging of hosts. The food is vegetarian/Italian/Indian, well the food is out of this world and one of the major problems with staying there, when is enough, enough! I am booked this winter 2010/2011 and will be putting my name down for the following year. The place is addictive.
