“A nice hotel in Kanya Kumari”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014

A good and quiet hotel out of the noisy city, in a calm aera, not far from Sunset Point. A nice garden with a nice lawn and view on the sea. A good staff, a good restaurant, a pleasant bar (with licence)...The bathrooms are little small and the light is quite dull in... A very nice swiming pool.. but unfortunately in the middle of the buildings, so no sea view... they could have built it in front of the building, there was a lot f space in the large front garden ... One other thing which is very disapointing in such place : impossible to open the large window in the rooms (no chance to feel the ocean air)... no balcony... and very few rooms can have a "small" view on the sea... May-be those on first and second floor, just those on the front (like rooms N° 100-101-102-103-113-114-115-116 and same on 2nd floor >> in fact the rooms which are in front of the building.. It is a real pity because this is, I think, the best hotel of the city! The architects have sometimes a real nonsense !!

Room Tip: Ask for a room in front of the building in order to have a chance to have a sea view : 100 to 103...

Large very good room with great view over the sea. Very pleasant gardens and pool area. Bar staff very friendly but as others have said alcohol policy in the restaurant is not consistent. Easy walk to all attractions, very interesting place to visit especially watching all the "day trippers" marvelling at the sunset. Would recommend and go back.

Kanya kumari has not been developed to the potential it has as a tourist destination. The infrastructure is below standard and processes are antediluvian. To elaborate, tickets to go to Vivekanand Rock by ferry, tickets to enter the area, tickets for the neighbouring structure are all to be bought separately and that means standing in long queues every time. Option for a combined ticket would have been nice! Similarly, the ferry operators ask you to pick up life jackets before boarding but no one bothers whether one wears them or not!! In fact, no one bothers to ensure that the buckles, straps etc are in working order and that the passengers know how to use them. It is an additional burden imposed by the authorities and the ferry operator is just interested in complying to the minimum. The authorities must ensure that safety standards and implemented in letter and spirit.
Having said that, Sparsa resort is a nice, reasonably clean hotel where the lack of sophistication and modern amenities is made up by the friendly and helpful attitude of the staff. The rooms are functional and okay. Don't expect it to come near any luxury hotel standard. It is not and does not pretend to be one either. The restaurant is a bit crowded and small and the quality of food is passable. The bar is a bit dingy- I don't know why bars are lit in low coloured lighting- it in fact makes the place look shady. The bar and restaurant could do with a good airing and some sunlight.
The property has some reasonably maintained grounds and is on the sea front. It is near the happening place ( for want of a better word) just a 15 minute walk. we stayed just one night and considering that we booked at the last moment i would consider it reasonably priced.
All in all, one of the okay properties at Kanya kumari.

Room Tip: the hotel is designed as a "V" and all the rooms have a partial view of the ocean. I belie...

a nice hotel far enough out of town to be quiet but only a short walk in to the center.A smallish pool but pretty. The room was clean and comfortable, the windows were filthy which was a shame as it would have been a good sunset view. Nice well kept gardens. The restaurant was good, I had noted that a previous reviewer had said that despite there being a bar you couldnt get a beer in the restaurant. The first day we had lunch there the waiter asked us if we wanted a beer, so we said yes,very nice too!The following day at lunch we asked for beer to be told no. So we pointed out that we had it the day before and would be having it again. This seemed to work so we had more beer, really its not much to ask.

Room Tip: top facing the sunset

Most of my friends suggested a day trip excursion from Trivandrum to Kanyakumari but we opted for a night stay... We looked for many places but out travel agent suggested Hotel Sparsa...
It was a present good surprise to be there. As soon as you reach the hotel, you are greeted with the shell garland & exotic drink in a coconut... Garlands clicked with my girls instantly
The rooms are very big & from our rooms we could see Indian Ocean & Arabian Sea.... Light from the light house got the imagination of the kids rolling down the imagining interesting things.
The hotel is very nicely decorated & houses some of the good antiques....

The hotel in the city centre so all the tourist places are near around... The market is really good & don't forget to bargain....
The hotel comes with all the luxury that a small town like Kanyakumari can offer, or rather more than that..... It has the swimming pool, tennis court, spa & gym....

The staff is very polite & well trained... This all 'coz of the attention given to the details by the GM himself..... If there is one thing that I would like to convey is - thnx a ton.....

The best part of the hotel is the magnificent garden..... It is must to spend time there reading some book...

Over all must stay in Kanyakumari

Sparsha Resort

We were apprehensive about our booking for Sparsha Resort following a series of negative reviews on TripAdvisor. We had planned our stay as a three-day break from quite demanding travels in the far south of Tamil Nadu. We had planned to relax, read and recover, so we became concerned at the lack of enthusiasm shown by recent reviewers.

In the event we were pleasantly surprised by the general appearance of the Hotel. It sits on a road closed to through traffic, and faces the sea. The sun sets directly opposite the Sparsha Resort. It is slightly out of the town and is significantly quieter than those in the heart of Kanyakumari.

We had booked a suite, and that probably made a significant difference. The suite had two large rooms and a comparatively small bathroom. It was in general attractive and pleasant, with polished floors and comfortable furniture.

There are two suites in the Sparsha – rooms No 101 and 114 opposite in the same corridor. Ours, 101, looked out onto the garden with sea views in both rooms, and a direct sight of the setting sun. The white blocks and greyroofs of the next-door ayuravedic hospital chalets didn’t add much to the picturesque quality of the view.

It was a good place to stay. Not luxurious but roomy, clean and perfectly comfortable.

We looked at 114 and though it faced the monuments, the view was closed by a high flowering hedge. The rooms are identical.

The rest of the bedrooms at Sparsha Resort are on two floors of a long building and many look out onto the balcony or garden around the pool area. This might be noisy when they have functions held beside the pool.

We found the staff courteous, professional and friendly.

Room service was efficient.

The laundry service reasonably priced and excellent. Things were cleaned well – they managed to remove a stubborn stain on a shirt. The pressing was of a high standard.

Wi-Fi was free and efficient. A technician fixed a glich promptly.

Our dinner was very good. We had excellent prawns, the fish curry was good and a vegetable curry excellent. The staff in the dining-room were helpful and charming.

Several guests had complained in TripAdvisor about breakfasts but we thought they were fine. The papapya and pineapple was as good as we have had. Perhaps the scrambled eggs weren’t perfect but the dosas were delicious.

The garden around the pool was a pleasant place to sit. Better still, the front gardens leading down to the sea were delightful with white frangipanis in bloom, a traditional log catamaran as a focus of the gardens, and shaded benches where one could sit and enjoy the sea breezes.

We very much regret that others have found problems at Sparsha Resort. We had no significant difficulties and would recommend it.

Room Tip: Room 101, the suite on the left hand front looking at the hotel is the best in the hotel. Pool room...

Loved our short stay at the Hotel. The location is just perfect! All the tourist attractions are down the road on a walking distance from the hotel.

The Suite room was big with a great sea view. We spotted a peacock in the hotel gardens and it was quite a view.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea facing room..
