The first thing about the place that catches your eye is the location. It is an absolute delight for people looking for an escape from the stresses of the world. Our Sea-view room had breathtaking views. Just wish the rooms get a refurbishment and I would not go anywhere again when I visit Kerala.

I am in Kovalam again for Ayurvedic treatment, having first visited nearly two years ago for the same reason. Both times I have stayed at Mini House, or Marigold Mini House as I should now call it, since it is under new management. I liked the hotel enough to return because of its location. Perched on steep shoreline just behind...

Great find with welcoming hosts at the quiet end of the beach. Listen to the waves crash onto the rocks below your balcony and enjoy beautiful views, home cooked good food, great ayurvedic massage and an early morning swim just a few yards away at Lighthouse Beach. Wifi on rooftop space a bonus.

This place is brand new and our airport transfer couldn't find it....but it was a tucked away little gem. It's on the main strip just a 5-10 min walk from the beach and was really clean and we'll kept. The girl who works on reception was a superstar. Genuinely the most caring sweetest girl ever. I definitely recommend a stay...

Basic but very comfortable accommodation in idealic location. Only downside is if your dont enjoy the sound of thundering surf just a few metres away. We stayed for 4 nights and loved it. Lovely little restaurant attached too.

Had booked a sea view room for 2 weeks. The room was nice with a great view. Big waves hitting the rocks, nothing for sound-sensitivs. During the stay I was informed that i needed to change rooms becouse of doubblebooking. When the same happened again decided to move out. Poor managment, not reliable. Happened to look in their kitchen backstage,...

We had spent two days in the huge Sagara beach resort before we found this little gem. This is NOT a luxury place in fact far from it and probably would only suit budget traverlers or backpackers however the friendly rustic feel about this place won us over. Its situated on its own a few hundred metres around the corner...
