Excellent Hotel and accommodation. Lots of options for eating, including a Sea food Barbecue by the Beach. Lobster, Crab, among other sea foods. Really tasty and ideal for the health conscious.
The beach was clean and had a great time swimming. The room was clean and goos.

We had a one night stay at Uday Samudra, Kovalam. The room given to us had a pool view and all the rooms have a wider balcony. Room were neat and clean.

We had B’fast included in our package and had a variety of items including Continental as well as Indian items, needless to mention the food was tasty.

"UDS" as its known is a great hotel where you can have a marvelous experience. You can choose to spend your time within the hotels private beach, go to their Ocean Spa or have a traditional Kerela Massage done. After a nice relaxing massage, going to the Sauna or a dip in the pool will make you feel completely stress free. A very courteous staff and a wonderful place. You can choose from their restaurants delectable food though their Buffet Breakfast which caters a wide variety can be worked upon to improve the taste. Overall a fun experience altogether.

I have been to India 51 times since 1988. I have traveled to many different places and have stayed at several hotels and hostels. The recent stay at the Uday Samudra Leisure Beach Hotel was graciously presented to my new wife and me as a wedding gift. We were absolutely impressed with the staff, the setting, the service, the rooms and the overall experience. Upon arriving we were greeted with sincerely friendly staff that made us feel right at home. We were given a brief tour and explanation of hotel services before being escorted to our room. The room was clean and very comfortable. We had all our meals at the hotel. Whether dining at the restaurant or in our room we found the food to be exceptional. We had a wonderful time......one of best hotels I have stayed at in India.

We were referred to Uday Samudra Hotel by a shopkeeper in Kovalam where we went for purchasing few Kerala sarees. It was a scrumptious lunch! Great location & ambience! There was a kitten who was playing in the lawn in front of our restaurant area, that made our lunch more exemplary! Even after a week I can sense the freshness of that place!

I have just returned from a 2 week holiday at the Uday and found it to be a good standard hotel that with a few improvements could be superb.

First of all I would like to point out that the staff are very friendly and work hard to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The reception staff are always smiling and ask if you need anything whenever you walk past. The restaurant staff were ok but would be vey busy at breakfast time.

The rooms are ok but the sleep quality not so much, as we were quite often woken up at 7am by the sounds of building work being completed. The rooms could also of been cleaned a little better, but we were always given clean towels on a daily basis.

The hotel is well located on the beach, with around 6 small restaurants around it, which are all well worth a visit.

personally i would not return to this hotel, purely based on other hotels we seen offering a lot better value for what we paid but if you want a good base to explore Kerala than this hotel will suit you, and in my opinion, why would you visit Kerala and spend all your time in the hotel anyway.

All in all massive potential but just needs improvements
