“Good location near by Eves Beach; With all goodies and friendly staff”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

We stayed in the resort for 4 nights and 5 days in Juky. Eves beach was at few mins walk and evry morning we could walk down ther to a relaxing swim in one of the best beaches around. For me its the best beach in Kovalam and it tend to get crowded as day proceeds. So the proximity of resort to the beach really helped us.

About the resort: Nice location on top of the hill and good swimming pool location as after spending time in the pool you can relax watching calming sea and lush green cocnut palm views. View from the top floor sea facing rooms are incredible. staff is friendly; food options though limited were tasty and rates are really reasonable.

Drawbacks: Need to work on road to resort and street lighting. Noticedindecent activities on the way to resort on couple of occassions at night

Royal Kovallam Beach Resort at Green Palms is one more property added under the Royal Goan Beach Club.
The property is nothing compared to those in Goa, but it has its own charm.
There are currently 2 buildings, one old property and other newly constructed. The property is undergoing further expansion. It is kind of constructed on a hill, old building at the higher level and new building at the lower level. The units in old and new are more or less the same, decently furnished but nothing extraordinary, the living room is small, bed room is slightly bigger but do not expect anything like RGBC properties at Haathi Mahal or Benaulim. There is no kitchen facility, only tea and coffee maker available. The view from the old property is stunning (Unit no.704). BUT, there is no lift and you have to climb almost 3 floors. My parents had a problem climbing up and down and we requested to be shifted at a unit in the new building which had a huge balcony. The restaurant is located at the level between the old and the new property and also the swimming pool. The pool (roof top) is small but clean. No bar currently available at pool side as permission for serving liquor is awaited. The recreation room is currently being used by the marketing department and not available for use but carom board, playing cards are provided in the rooms on request. The restaurant currently does not serve tandoori dishes. There were very few dishes on the menu but the food was very good. In fact, the best kerela food we have had in Kovallam. We especially liked the Allepy fish curry (spicy, red gravy, Tamarind) , Meen Moily fish curry (yellow, onion and turmeric based), and prawns biryani. The restaurant staff even arranged the traditional Appam for us one day even though it was not on their menu. Overall the staff was very courteous; especially, Ajomon from the restaurant staff who even arranged a candle light dinner for us on the roof top !

Besides, the restaurant at the resort, we also ate at Coconut Grove, Garcia and Fusion at the Hawa beach, which is adjoining the light house beach. The food at Coconut Groove was good. We had promfret curry and fish fry there. The ambiance was best at Fusion but we found the food a little bland for our taste. Garcia is OK, we had prawns there but Coconut Grove better in terms of hygiene and also taste. There is a veg place, The Lonely Planet where we had excellent Dosas.

The Kovalam turquoise blue sea is very beautiful to look at especially from the light house. There is a raised pavement to walk adjoining the beach. The beach has mixed coloured sand at places very light and at places almost black. You can look at the sea for hours from the beach front eating places. People indulge in swimming and surfing and there are plenty of coast guards to monitor that you do not venture too deep. But unlike Goa there are no water sports and night life. This a quaint, quiet place. Goa and Kovalam both offer very different things and you should experience both.

There are several places offering massage near the beach.

We also did some day trips to Neyyar dam, from where we had a boat ride to their lion, deer and crocodile park. We also went to the Elephant rehabilitation centre and had a ride on the elephant bare back (quite scary).
We went to Trivandrum to the Zoo, shopped for sarees at Kalyan Sarees , bought Banana Chips (from Maha Chips) and spices.

We would definitely return to Kovallam when we want some peace and solitude. Goa is more vibrant.
