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.
Their private beach is awesome”
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.
Nice swimming pool overlooking the small, local beach. Lighthouse beach with its long stretch of sand and promenade lined with cafes and shops only a five minute walk away.. Was staying at the time of a tropical cyclone; the staff coped admirably with the conditions and ensured that all guest continued to enjo y their stay.
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!!
charming hotel with private beach”
fantastic stay in a room facing the sea fantastic food and everything you can expect from a 3star hotel and even more perfect location 5 minutes walk to kovalam center but at the same time quiet location with private beach. not hasseled by the locals which can be very annoying here in india for women fantastic aryuvedic center within the hotel. private yoga lessons... we extend our stay...
Fantastic situated hotel and totally “herself” not trying to look like any other ***** hotel, charming Indian style.
Not value for money”
Pros Location and Private beach Staff’s are very friendly. Cons Rooms are not clean and property is quiet old. Bathrooms are disgusting, I would not suggest to those who look for a comfortable and decent stay.
Fantastic stop to acclimatise ”
We had a lovely room with balcony sea facing we looked out on to palm trees with lots of wildlife and fantastic private beach. Town beach was down a hill 5 mins away plenty of places to eat tuck tuk back up the hill 100 rupies well worth it. Staff were very friendly. Could do with updating but would definitely go back.
Poor Mobile and Internet connectivity”
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.
Fittings and facilities lack finesse. ”
The food was good. The restaurant and house keeping staff were very efficient and helpful. The facilities in the room were not satisfactory. 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. The room charges are a bit on the higher side for the facilities available.
Loved it !”
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.
Very nice beach view Hotel”
Our room were 2 Delux room ans 1 Cottage (Freely Upgraded) Nice Beach view room. rooms were spacious and decent. Location is very good. Food is average. 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.
A hidden gem”
Don't be deceived byt the narrow hotel entrance. Beyond is a spectacular private bay and beach amid landscaped gardens and clean pool. Food is good but nearby is a host of other restaurants. Relaxing atmosphere amid low key decor.
Great Staff, Large pool and quiet area”
The hotel itself is a bit tired but in saying that the room was huge and bed very comfortable.The pool area was really nice and pool itself lovely for swims.Great location with a sea view. Staff were always most helpful. I would recommend to others.

Lovely Hotel, Service with a smile, Friendly Staff”
Hotel with peace and calmness, located on beach itself, safe, you can feel the sea even at mid night. Very good food with all choices. Neat and clean with good room service. Best mid range hotel to stay with family. Well located swimming pool, where you can spend the whole day. Would plan again. All beaches near by.
good hotel in near the beach”
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.
Perfect Location on Lighthouse beach”
Wonderful quiet beach, clean, comfortable Room with terrasse and beach view, only 5 minutes Walk to city center of Kovamlam
