                  Nice room with sea view and an original spa hotel feeling....nice swimming pool but the wall of the pool is not even and I cut my finger on one of them... otherwise a nice hotel to relax and a few steps from the lighthouse.

                  Lovely location overlooking generous pool and private beach. We stayed in a cottage which was spotless and well maintained. The staff were marvelous and the restaurant manager was a delightful man. My wife had one treatment in the spa and enjoyed the early morning yoga sessions. A short stroll to downtown for promenading and people watching. A place to go back to as many do year after year.

                  Pros Private beach is big and nobody troubles you there, Excellent breakfast, courteous staff and in-house ayurveda facility at reasonable price Cons They must maintain the beach better and have shacks without charging extra for it. Lifeguard was missing at the beach on the days we went and hence v were adviced to stay away from water.

                  Complementary Early Check-in/out, Welcome drink(fruit juice), Sweets snacks(Indians sweet one), Their service was excellent and it was so warmful. It's not like 5 star hotel, however very At-Home style Indian hotel and I prefer here than Gorgeous Luxury 5 stars resort hotel. One of our group said that Breakfast Buffet was more tasty and staff's hospitality was better than Taj's one... Room is not so special, but clean. Location is a lil bit hill side hence it was like exercise to walk from the beach for me. Although I didn't try Ayurveda at this time but it is reasonable & friendly price, Expert Dr. is always in the hotel... I want to try it next time!!! Anyway totally it worth of staying!!

                  Goods Points:- 1. The food was great. 2. The staff, especially those in the restaurant and house keeping was efficient and polite. 3. There is a private beach for the hotel where swimming is possible. Drawbacks:- 1.The Mobile phone and Internet connectivity was extremely poor inside and outside the room. 2. The fittings were crude, especially in the bathroom. 3. You needed the pass word for switching on the TV! So it became a nuisance to call the staff every now and then. 3. There was no fridge in the room nor was there a provision for making tea/coffee. 4. The swimming pool had crows visiting to quench their thirst. As a result, the bird droppings mixed with the pool water. An overhead net is badly required to prevent this menace.

The fittings in the bathroom lacked finesse. In fact, they were crude and not user friendly. The pool had crow menace. The birds' droppings were aplenty in the pool.

                  Great location about a 10 minute walk from the centre of Kovalam. It is up a steep hill but if you don't fancy the walk a tuktuk will cost you 50 rupees. Set in lovely grounds the hotel has a nice pool and superb beach which is amazingly clean by indian standards. The included breakfast was really good. Our room was clean and spacious with a sea view. However, what really made this a great holiday were the staff who could not have been better. From the pool guy to the cleaners to the waiters, they were all really good. A special mention for Reshma on reception - you couldn't get a better person for front of house.

They have tried well to make north Indian food but taste was average, not bad. Hotel is at Beach so there are slopes and levels are there for delux room/Cottage. So it might be little difficult for Old people to walk from hotel enterance to room. Service was good.

                  good hotel in near the beach”

                  Separate from the majority of Kovalam hotels

                  deluxe rooms prooved to be rather simple and we made upgrade to rooms in cottages. those rooms were rather convenient. service is good, staff was attentive. food was also good, however service in the restaurant was rather slow and after one dinner we shifted to other kovalam restaurants.
