We stayed from August 29th-31st, 2018 and had the most amazing time ever. The rooms are very rustic and give you a feel of Heritage property. The amenities in the rooms are top notch and the food is very authentic. The staff is very helpful and the service is discreet yet attentive. A must visit in Kovalam.

Family trip where all needs catered for....children loved the pool, pottery making, henna tattoos and glass painting...the lady who did all this was so patient with them.
All the food from breakfast through to dinner was gorgeous and the waiters and waitresses were superb, so polite and happy to help.
Rooms were really special...outdoor shower was a hit!
The Spa and Auyudedic massages were lovely, top class therapists who really new their stuff.

Thank you to all the staff

I visited here 6th Aug 18 to 9th Aug 18 with my wife and infant kid. Property and the staff here are good. I stayed at sea facing heritage premium cottage which is really beautiful but the day when we checked in the room was stinking urine, actually the sitting area sofa cushions were stinking. We immediately reported to management they promptly cleaned it and offered another room. Sea waves were so noisy, so we decided to stay back little away from it. First night we really didn’t had good sleep we were tired with our journey as well. Night time quirking noises were heard, thought it could be house lizard slightly disturbing. Best part of our stay was food, we really enjoyed food and their service. My kid loved the apple puree they made. Ayurvedic Spa was also ok, I had better one in thekkady, kerala. Overall I enjoyed the stay, hope they could rectify those few discomforts caused to any guest in future.

We had a wonderful stay and a mesmerising experience special mention of the hospitality and the staff. I have never seen such a courteous staff specially Mr Samson was very proactive to understand our food requirements and arranged everything beforehand. Property is very beautiful bang opposite to beach. We will definitely recommend this property to everyone.

Room Tip: go for premium/superior beach cottages
