A very good hotel for 4 stars, definitely as good if not better than the five star establishments in Kovalem. Excellent service and first class facilities in a lovely location where you can stroll through the gardens to the beach. Staff are lovely, offering excellent but discrete service. The spa, Ayurvedic clinic, gym and pools are as good as anything else I've experienced in India. The management make a real effort to ensure that all their guests are looked after. A large establishment but well laid out to make it welcoming and accessible, open and light not dull or over-bearing.
My one criticism is the same for all the hotels here, no drinks licence. Although drinks are readily available.
Don't dismiss the Uday Samudra for its four stars, it is worth more than that.

A resort with three swimming pool, 3-4 restaurant, see face. excellent staff and maintenance. There hospitality attracts us a lot. The only thing they miss is more options in Bar, children activity rooms and some sort of regular evening program.

Room Tip: One should request for see facing or balcony rooms. They have separate rates for see facing or balc...

UDS is an upscale and luxurious 4 Star hotel brand which appeals to distinguished and discerning travelers. Kovalam, located close to Trivandrum, the capital city of Kerala, India is an internationally renowned beach with three adjacent crescent beaches. It has been a favourite haunt of tourists, especially Europeans, since the 1930s.

The palm-fringed bays of Kovalam in secluded coconut groves, promise a relaxed stay. The unforgettable image of Kovalam is that of the coconut-palms-lined high rock promontory that cuddles the calm and wide expanse of the blue waters. This marvelous beach is a tourist's dream come true.

Set in four acres on the serene beaches of Kovalam, UDS is located 15 kilometers away from the Trivandrum International Airport with excellent air connectivity to Singapore, Europe, and Middle East and to all the metros in India.
Trivandrum is also well connected by rail and road network with the rest of India.

We were recommended Uday Samundra by several friends who had visited over the past few years and thought this was consistant enough for us. Recommend also to anyone including families with small children. Easily spend 2 weeks here and lots to do and see around surrounding areas.

Excellent service, very nicely located, having its own private beach. Service very good, with a very warm welcome. Staying at UDS really soothes body and mind. Ambiance very very good. Spacious and well ventilated rooms. each room has balcony which opens to the garden and towards the swimming pool.

I visited this place last December 2012. Loved the live food they serve in the evenings on the beach. Excellent rooms and the service is even better. This is one of the best place I ever lived in, everything about this hotels gets the best rating from me.

Room Tip: All rooms r good.

Location and a private beach are the greatest advantage. Very big property which is poorly manned. Front office very helpful and courteous.Food is average. Ayurvedic centre is good but slightly expensive. Well maintained swimming pools. Room interiors and furniture left a lot to be desired.
