Turtle on the Beach Hotel
Hawa Beach,Kovalam - View on map
"We live in Delhi and spent 3 nights at Turtle On The Beach for holidays. This hotel offers best scenery in Kovalam Beach area (except Leela which is located slightly away from Kovalam Beach). Please have a try climbing up at Sky Suite for the best view. The hotel is not located ‘on the beach’ but in a walking distance from the beach. The only thing you need to consider is a steep slope which you need to climb up when coming back to the hotel. The staffs are super friendly and are ready to offer any support. At the time of our visit, we were offered to take better rooms instead of the lower grade room which we booked. This may not be expected every time however, the readiness to offer the best service feels so nice, especially if you are a visitor from other major cities in India. The hospitality of this hotel is definitely better than those ‘Luxurious’ and ‘Gorgeous’ 5 star hotels. Besides, surfing at Lighthouse Beach is FUN!"

The Travancore Heritage Beach Resort
Adimalathura,Kovalam - View on map
"The property: The property is spread around a vast area. It includes two swimming pools, heritage cottages, normal rooms, spa, ayurvedic restaurant and a multi cuisine restaurant. It has access to the beach, about 5 mins from property. The landscaping is well planned and beautifully maintained. It has parking space also. Room: We booked a normal room but we were upgraded to a cottage. Spacious room with all amenities of a 4 star hotel room including a mini refrigerator. The washroom is the best part, architecture is such that you will feel the natural with full privacy. Food: This is the part which disappointed me but not that bad. The breakfast and lunch were buffet, except few changes rest everything in menu remained the same most days. Apart buffet you can order ala carte. The taste is fine but on two occasions I had to complain that the food I got wasn’t cooked properly. The cost is fine."

Vivanta by Taj - Green Cove Kovalam
Samudra Beach,Kovalam - View on map
"The resort is stunning, so well kept, clean, amazing and exotic plant species and bird species. The Jasmine Bay restaurant is sort-of open air at the pool on the 'hill' and has a splendid views of the resort grounds and the beach with the rough waves. But I suggest: Do not leave the grounds of the resort! I am really disappointed though that we went to Kovalam (Trivandrum) for our first trip to India. Although the amount of Palm trees and bird species are amazing, I will give Kovalam (Trivandrum) a 2/10 in terms of a tourist destination. A lot of things were an utter rip-offs (trips to go and see people weaving coil, get real!); same with over-prized Indian arts & crafts (I can buy them for so much less here in Dubai; ie bought a peacock shawl at Sharjah blue souk for 35aed, it was 210aed in India....)."

Uday Samudra Leisure Beach Hotel
Samudra Beach,Kovalam - View on map
"From check in until check out we really enjoyed our stay at the UDS. This was our last stop on our trip to Kerala. Every member of staff from the porters up to the management were so friendly and respectful. We liked our room which had everything we needed to enjoy a relaxing stay. The access to the beach was great and contrary to what other reviewers have written, the beach is great and you can swim in the sea. The local shops and restaurants are great and everybody is so friendly. Such a difference to the other side of Kovalam on Lighthouse Beach where everything is just too much! I almost don't want to write this review, as we may not get a room when we next visit Kovalam, but feel it is so worthy. We have been visiting Kovalam for six years but have never stayed at the UDS before. We will definitely stay there again and would recommend it. We feel it offers very good value for money and far outweighs any of the other hotels in the same category. Keep it up UDS, we will most definitely be back. Thank you. John and Debbie H (London). "

More about Kovalam

Sea, sand, and sun. Travelers to India’s southern state of Kerala visit the beach paradise of Kovalam for just that. Known the world over for its coastal retreat, Kovalam is one of the country’s oldest tourist destinations, made famous by the royalty that saw great potential in the area. Reaching the area is as easy as flying into Trivandrum International Airport and grabbing a taxi to travel the 16km to Kovalam. Within the city, taxis and rickshaws are the way to get around, but renting a bike provides the best way to take in the atmosphere.

Once in Kovalam, it’s all about the beaches. Lighthouse Beach is the more developed area and boasts a 35-meter high lighthouse atop Kurumkal hill. A five-minute walk away is the second largest beach, Hawah Beach. This was a very adult-friendly area where beachgoers could go topless and avoid the tan lines. But that has since been banned. Samudra Beach is a quieter area and is where local fisherman ply their trade. There is a lighthouse located here as well. This one is a landmark for being the oldest lighthouse in Kerala.

There are plenty of properties to choose from when looking to stay in Kovalam, from budget properties for the backpacker or thrifty traveler to high-end resorts providing all the luxury you can handle. Beach Road hosts an abundance of properties and is a great place to start looking for the perfect stay.
