“Quite a good Hotel”
Reviewed July 31, 2010

I visited Raja Hotel with my better half from 14th Dec for a 2 nights stay and it was really fabulous experience. The view of ocean from our room's terrace was just amazing and one must go there to experience it. The food served in the hotel was of good quality. The location is good with ocean just couple of minutes away.

I will surely recommend this hotel to my relatives and friends. I would love to visit again!!!

Raja Hotel provides 'no frills' accommodation (see rating below) but that needs some qualification: each room is clean, well sized, has TV and 'fridge, telephone, and air-conditioning if you specify you need it; but is not aimed at the 'luxury tourist'.
All rooms have a sea-view. Currently, it does not have links with the large 'charter' firms and so it suits the independant traveller. It is popular with Indian tourists.
In my opinion all this adds to the attraction and character of Raja Hotel. Staff are very friendly and helpful, and they are genuine in their wish to make your stay an enjoyable one. Of particular note is the attention given by Sri Satheesh who is responsible for the daily management of the hotel.
Raja is situated away from the beach - just a short walk down the hill to either of the two main beaches - and so has an elevated position. A cooling breeze adds to the comfort therefore!
I have been travelling to Kerala for nearly 12 years and just keep going back to Raja, although I have tried other hotels!
In terms of value-for-money (setting all the factors about the hotel against the room cost) I would thoroughly recommend it, and strongly suggest that before you book anywhere else you make contact with Satheesh and find out what he can offer you.
(I have provided 5 photos below taken for my own use a couple of years or so ago and NOT taken with this website in mind. If just 3 photos appear below, click on 'add photos' and all 5 should appear - I think!).
