This property is an ideal getaway from the hustle bustle of city life. The furnishings are superb giving a great ambience. The clear blue swimming pool is quite inviting. The property has its own pathway to the beach of Kovalam which needs no intro. Service is superb. Food is great. Overall - recommended for a idyllic getaway

The resort is a new concept. Located on Beach just 20-30 mtrs away. Hotel has a small pool which is practical and effective. Rooms are good. We stayed in a Dupley room which was exceptional. Room had all facilities one can dream of in 5 start hotel. The food is also good, Sea food is great. The approach to the beach is slightly restricted but beach very populated. Sea is not rough but beach has flat surface.
Room had microwave oven and tea/coffee making machine. The bar and resturant are unique in terms of decoration. The Presidential suit is out of the world and has exceptional facilities. If some one can afford it, it is the best dal on the beach

Though it was a short stay, I should admit that it was a pleasant one.
The sea facing rooms was indeed beautiful, a refreshing change from the usual business hotels. The swimming pool is nice and long . The Gym is small , but nevertheless can help you in your cardio. Overall ideal for a perfect vacation

The place has a lot going for it, especially the view of the beach! But my review of Turtle on the Beach have to go back a bit in time to a small Indian fine dining place in Newport News (NN), VA.

I first met chef Soju Philip on an accidental visit to "Agni" in NN, VA with my friends. The food was great, but the best part was Soju coming out and talking to the customers. Since that day, we were regulars at 'Agni' till Soju decided to return to India. We would often call in food orders and travel 20-25 miles from Norfolk and VA Beach area to NN.

Even after Soju returned to India, we remained in touch and I came to know about the Turtle on the Beach. They have a great website (http://www.turtleonthebeach.com/) and I really wanted to visit the place ever since. So I made it a point to visit Kovalam and the hotel and I wasn't disappointed.

Again along with great food, Soju gave us a tour of the place and the concept is really cool. Apart from the standard rooms, there are private rooms where you can lock yourself from rest of the hotel. A villa in case you have a large group. A hall from which it would be better to just watch the beach rather than socialize. Soju was also talking about the Mediterranean restaurant they were setting up, which I am looking forward to visit in near future.

The place is still in expansion mode and you might see people working on some ends of the property. Other than that... Great place!

Happly to let you all know that the location, cleanliness, cleanliness etc are superb..There are minor challenges in regard to their bar license, accessebility to the beach etc. I had a talk with the staff and was assured as they are on the process of solving all that soon. Sure, i would re comment it to my folks...
