“Clean+Nice food+Gr8 location == Peaceful+Enjoyable+Gr8 Stay”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

When we check-in we (everyone in our group) were welcomed with a drink and with a mala made of sea-shells. Kids were surprised and keeping them as souvenir. Nice idea by management:-) to attract kids. Breakfast included in our package. Worth it for the buffet that had many varieties (idli, dosa, puri, french toast, bread/omlette/egg, upma, coffee/tea/juices etc) and many of the food is great in taste as well. Kitchen staff are nice and patience - served dosa/puri were hot as they readily prepared and served at your table. TIP: Eat less in the previous night, so in the morning you can enjoy by eating as much food as you can:-)

Swimming pool is crystal clear. Since we stayed in a weekday, just couple of people were in the pool and kids and adults enjoyed the experience thoroughly. No dust or chlorine smell from the pool water. There was a guard in duty at the pool so we felt a bit safe.

Most of the rooms in first floor and second floor have SEA-VIEW through window (some rooms may have trees hiding their full view). From room's window, sunset and sunrise cannot be seen. However, if you're ready to walk ~3 minutes, you can reach the sunset point. If there had been a balcony/sit-out in each room facing sea, that would have been a wonderful view.

In the evening, one can walk along the cement-pavement built alongside of the sea-shore just in front of this resort. Note that you cannot get into the sea-shore from in front of this resort.

They have few indoor games too (chess, carrom, pool table and table tennis). Well maintained! There is a separate open kids play area with slides etc. Gym also looks loaded with good equipments for those who want to workout!!

Besides a huge powercut schedule in Tamilnadu (other than Chennai - all over tamilnadu there is minumum ~10 hours of powercut, even in night, is followed), this resort has very good battery backup. So considering summer heat, we were blessed to stay in this resort without powercut during my full 24 hours stay. That's great.

Areas to improve:
1. In general staff and service (mainly "room service") are just average. They need to train their staff to improve customer experience and for respond to customer queries/needs. I asked help to get my luggages while checking-out, no one turned out for 20 minutes. I did myself as no one ever turned out. Though I tipped a bit generously the previous day when checking-in. Not so nice in this regard. (Note that staff at Swimming POOL and KITCHEN are nice and helpful).
2. They keep shampoo and moisturizers in mud-pots (eco-friendliness/go-green, great initiative! Appreciate it!!). The issue is that both pots are exactly same in size and color and I was about to apply shampoo on my body...thinking that is the moisturizer. It was confusing. Could management correct this issue keeping this confusion in mind.

Check-out experience was simple and just quick. Overall good experience and enjoyed staying here.

Regards,
Ramesh

I stayed with my family at Sparsa resort on 7th May. I appreciate the proximity of this resort to all prime places of Kanyakumari. The double bed rooms were clean and tidy, though the size was a bit smaller comparing to the standard size of the double room in other hotels of this stature. The food was good in the restaurant. My kids liked the pool and the play area. The garden was well maintained. You would love to enjoy the peace it brings to mind over the evening breeze at the garden. I would say , it is easily a good pick if you want enjoy the star facility in Kanyakumari !!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room that faces sea more than the pool !

We had stayed here for 3 nights last year. The hotel is much more prettier than the pictures in the website. It is located on the slopes of a small hill with lovely gardens overlooking the Indian ocean. It is about 5-10 minutes walk to the main highlights.Service is excellent. Rooms are clean.There is one restaurant at the hotel which serves nice food. Kanyakumari is gorgeous and this hotel is probably the best option.

we visited Kanyakumari on the last day of our Kerala trip in May 2013. We had booked at the Sparsa resort which is on the beach road, which seemed to be new part of the town.
The location and architecture of the building Is very nice, every room gets a good view of the oceans. The boat jetty is nearby from where you get the ferry to go the Vivekanand rock memorial.
Sparsa's custom of welcoming you with a mala made of sea shells was also very good.
Rooms - nice!
Food - good, service a bit slow.
Value for money - definitely.
It was also goo to have a swimming pool on the first floor.
Overall a nice experience at Sparsa.

The Hotel Sparsa is a great hotel. A short distance away from the main highlight of Kanyakumari, This is a luxury hotel, which great clean rooms and excellent staff. Food is also great.

I would recommend this place if you want piece and luxury.

I never thought Kanyakumari would have something like this one. The resort was a last minute booking for us. We drove down from Chennai to Sparsa. The journey was great. It took us few minutes to identify the location as we had to call the front desk. And realized that this was right on the beach view road.

The location can't be better. You are in the southern most tip of India where the western ghats end and obviously for this reason the resort is in a much higher level than the sea level. Simply awesome view from the resort. All you need to do is stand in the lawn of the resort. The wind and view is unbelievable.

The resort is clean and clean and clean. You order any item in the restaurant is made the best. The service quality is also the best I have experienced off late.

All rooms have exactly the same view of the ocean. The rooms are nice done. Complete Eco friendly one. You can hardly see any plastic. Even the shampoo etc are kept in mud pots. Swimming pool was clean again and it was in the first floor. They have a nice tennis court as well. Staff is kind and keep you cool all the time. Nice bar attached as well.

What else u need for a holiday...

Sparsa... I would go again for sure pretty soon!

Room Tip: All rooms are same !
