“A BEST HOTEL IN THE WORLD.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2011

When we confirm the tour all over INDIA. My Foreign friends booked some hotels for our Refreshment and safe staying. Before that Every one from Each state friends have collected the list of TOP hotels. I mentioned the 'HOTEL SUN WORLD" as my opinion. They also accepted my choice and booked before 1 month to the date of tour.
After that only get some fear about that,because even till that I never have any experience in this hotel. But I get wonder and highly satisfied in the first day itself. We got full privacy in our stay and surprised about the friendly service,Cleanliness ,Rooms and food quality and its rate.Really enjoyed a lot and also decided it as our favorite Hotel. I am sure that we will be there in our next trip to Kanyakumari. Thanks for your care service .

The hotel room is worst than the public toilets with the damp smell in it. I didn't manage to sleep the whole night due to the smell. The bedsheet and the towels are old. Need to make few calls in order to get the hot water to bath. The staffs are inexperienced and are lost. No comment on the location.

The Hotel is under major renovation but lacks the basic qualities of any hotel that is connected with a peak tourist place. The rooms are absolutely shabby and still under renovation- for the cost they are charging its not worth the stay. The staff is inexperienced and so is the reception and so called senior staff at the recpetion. The linen in the rooms are old and towels are so rough that they could give you blisters. The hotel seems to be thriving on the helplessness of a traveler and is evident from their attitude.The restaurant is also over priced and food is barely palatable. The staff are too lost and seem to get away with their inefficiency. Basic amenities like hot water are also not available round the clock- after 6 one has to ask house keeping for water for a bath!

I stayed 2 nights and 3 days in Hotel Sun World in Kanyakumari. Very good hotel, outstanding location - few minutes walk to the beach, to all major eateries, nearby kumari amman temple and less than 5 minutes walk to the boading point for Vivekananda Rock ferry.

I got a room on the 4th Floor - with an amazing view of Vivekananda Rock and the ocean. Rooms are spacious and clean - as this is a brand new hotel. I also got a good deal on the room rates which made the stay even more worthwhile.

Negatives: Food is expensive in this hotel but there are cheaper options available close-by. Also, some amount of construction work happening at the Ground Floor. If you take upper floors, you would not be distrubed.

Go for Hotel Sun World. You will have an amazing stay provided you negotiate the rates.
