Sea Sun Residency
Ranked #26 of 30 Hotels in Kanyakumari
Reviewed January 1, 2014 via mobile

We reluctantly booked this place given reviews on here and were pleasantly surprised. Basic fan rooms were clean and colourful with balcony sea views. Staff were friendly and helpful and the hotel was only a 10 minute walk into town, but far enough away to be quiet at night.

Only complaint was the noise in the morning from other guests and a rather unwelcome sunrise call from reception. The howling wind outside the room was also noisy - definitely a place where you need earplugs.

Stayed: December 2013, traveled with friends

it may be a bit biased, since I kind of had a sponsored stay. the rooms were clean, and sea view is great, they also have a roof top sun rise/set view point, the restaurant was the very good on quality and quantity! to add car parking was also available. the only disadvantage being the location, it is right at the center b/w Gandhi memorial and sun set view point, so its a long walk either way.

Room Tip: only choose rooms with sea view

We had a very bad experience in this hotel. They would give us a dirty room that did not correspond with what we had booked and wanted to charge more than we had the room booked for. Besides they were very unfriendly. There are a couple of rooms with good view, the others are horrible.
There is only one restaurant around, for the rest you have to walk quite a while.

I have travelled to Kanyakumari several times over the years. I booked rooms for my friends and I at Sea Sun and it was the biggest mistake I ever made. The cleanliness was terrible. The room smelled like urine. The sheets on the bed were dirty as were the pillow covers. When I requested clean sheets nothing was done. My wife in frustration finally stripped the sheets off the bed and threw them in the hallway. The manager sent up 3 young boys to handle the situation. They went room to room stripping off sheets from other beds and bringing them to us. Needless to say they were dirty and stained as well. These same 3 boys are the housecleaning crew, bellhops, waiters, etc. In other words, the hotel has no staff. The restaurant in the hotel is limited and mediocre in quality. Expect to wait a long time for the simplest order.

Unless you are looking for a miserable trip, I would recommend that you stay away from this hotel.

This hotel was a normal one. Not so good. The rooms were pretty clean. Right next to the new bus stand even though it is like an isolated place. The people in the reception were friendly in nature. That gave us a little more comfort.Overall, this was a place where one could stay to finish their work at Kanyakumari i.e., watching the sunset & sunrise and to leave home.

Not what it says on the tin, there is no restaurant, the building isn't even finished! Complete will Indian bamboo scaffolding, every Englishman's nightmare.
We were lucky enough to have a balcony, which we couldn't use because the door was jammed. When the tv was fixed the electricity kept cutting out every 10 minutes which proved impossible to watch a film.
Other than that it was a good stay, the people were friendly enough.
Here's a tip, take a photocopy of your passport And visa as the hotel doesn't own a photocopier And your sent into town at your own expense. There is Also no wifi ........ It is a safe place to rest your head.

Room Tip: Air con rooms are with sea view
