The hotel is situated on a cliff, with some rooms and villas on the same level as the main hotel, and then there's a second block of rooms down at the beach level, accessed from an outdoor lift. Can't say the lower block looked at all inviting, and if the lift wasn't working, you'd be a bit stuck! Again, if...

Beautiful property, excellent location, fantastic facilities, great food. However, people at the beach and the pool can be a bit more friendly and they should connect with their guests better. Their ability to talk in languages other than Malayalam is pretty poor and that affects their interactions with the guests tremendously.

We stayed at Travancore Heritage for 2 nights and 3 days, which is awesome. Resort layout and greenery was excellent. We took summer package and it included buffet dinner and a boat ride. Food was nice with lot of options, however they can add few area specific items like Andhra varieties which will add an authentic feel to the collection....

we spent 3 nights in this resort. It is on the cliff side, therefore a good coastal view is available from the rooms. Hotel's beach is neat & clean although not private but the bad part is the reachability. you need to cross a dirty lagoon barefoot, to relax on the beach which is not safe for swimming. Alternate way,...

Very disappointed I chose this as it is 'on' the beach. It isn't the beach is over the road over a grass area where cows graze then onto a beach littered with rubbish then you cross a lagoon to get on the actual beach but the sea is so rough you would not swim in it, great to watch the...

We stayed in the heritage cottages which were quaint but desperately in need of new curtains and blinds that worked and windows that were cleaned It is situated down the side of a steepish hill so some walking along paths is required to access facilities The beds in the cottage were also pretty basic and could do with some better...

We stayed 5 days in a premium heritage room on the cliff with beach view and really enjoyed the beautiful scenery. The cottages are spread over the resort with proper distance to each other and below the canopies of various tree species in well maintained gardens. Our room was large and clean with excellent daily room service. We enjoyed massages...
