Vedanta Wake Up! Kovalam

Reviewed February 27, 2014

I stayed here for 10 days and the staff could not be more friendlier or helpful. The spacious rooms (all with a balcony) were clean and cleaned whenever you needed it. It is 3 minutes from the beach. Quiet, overlooking paddy fields and palm trees. Breakfast was amazing esp. the Indian dishes. If something did not work, the staff attended to it immediately. They also arranged for me to stay at their Varkala property which was wonderful too - with great helpful staff. The internet is only available in the lobby area and sometimes if you have a room on the first floor close to the router. Loved my stay here and recommend it highly! This is what budget accommodation should be! Wish someone would take this model and duplicate it all over India .

Room Tip: Room 101 is one of the only rooms that has WiFi sometimes. Stayed in two rooms - both clean, spaciou...

Great budget accommodation. Really helpful and friendly staff - they helped us book our next hostel and were always happy to give us advice. Close enough to the beach to be convenient but far enough away to avoid too much noise + bustle.

we arrived very late at night and staff came till the parking to pick up luggage, approach road is very narrow but full of coconut trees. Hotel does not have restaurant but arrange for food from outside. Next day's breakfast was excellent with puddu from kerala, it was tasty.
Rooms are spacious with balcony, TV, etc, rooms have very good furniture and bathrooms are very large. We found lot of cleanliness everywhere and staff was polite with good hospitality.
Hotel has very good terrace and one can see only coconut trees from terrace, a perfect place for morning yoga. You can also see Arabian sea from terrace. Good hot water and AC was super cooling. Overall nice experience except approach road, they told us that road is under construction. Beach is just 2 minutes walk from hotel and we enjoyed swimming and also watched how fisherman catch fish in the morning. Another interesting is light house and one can go on the top, to see the sea view. there is language problem in kerala but people are very nice and warm

The photos shared and website doesn't inform you that this hotel is little bit inside from road and 1/2 KM away from beach. You can't reach here by car and there is no drinking water available from hotel side you have to buy it on your own. They don't have kitchen so don't expect you will find food here.

Basically it is a house with rooms where you can stay and go to beach every now and then. Rooms are exceptionally good and if you are not a person who is into room service this might work best for you as the cost of rooms here is cheaper than other hotels on beach side.

Room Tip: Ask for room on 1st floor with bath tub.It is not there in every room

The hotel room is very good. Clean and big.
Friendly staff..
Breakfast was good.. Taste is bit okay-kind.. .but getting such a breakfast in a Tourist place like Kovalam makes you feel very good
I would have given it a 5 if not the following
* Hot water stops at 9.00.. It stopped even much earlier.. If you get into hotel after a tiring day and cant have a hot shower.. imagine
* TV was not working... when you come to relax in a place and find TV not working... OMG... They could either not take guests during such a time or give discounts.. It is irritating
* Hotel was bit difficult to find and you need to walk with luggage in a narrow walk-way. .I think it is with most hotels (except one or two) in Kovalam
* No parking facilities available for the hotel.. Driving with your own car puts it in risk.

Room Tip: * dont go by own car * get the top most floor. other floors don't have any sea view

I stayed here 2 nights. Location is very good but the best is the staff, specially Rajesh, he will do anything in his hands to help you out! They advertise this as a hostel but it is not, it is a big hotel that it happens to have 2 dorms. I slept in one of the dorms and both were empty while I was there. There is no common area as a such so it is not a great place to meet people if you are on your own. But the room and bathroom were clean. Probably a good option if you are travelling with friends and getting a double room. Also, wifi was not working very good. And I do think it was too expensive for a dorm!
