The resort has a perfect location directly on the beach about 10 kilometers south of Kovalam. The room I had was okay although it is a little strange to find the bathroom mirror not over the basin but over the toilet bowl. The owner takes great care to do everything in his power to make your stay a memorable one.... More

We used Trip Advisor to find this hotel and read only positive reviews and, after our 2 week stay, we can endorse all the good things that everyone else has written!

Tremendous hidden away location with wonderful terraces leading down to the ocean and beach. Meals on the terrace overlooking the local fishermen is memorable but the food produced by Raj the chef exceeded the wonderful food recently tasted in some of the best hotels in Sri Lanka. The hotel thrives on the friendly and personal attention of Philip the owner.... More

Lovely laidback resort right on the beach at Nellikunna. Owner Phil is busy all day making sure you have everything you need, while Raj is in the kitchen cooking excellent Keralan food as well as other specialities. Brilliant beach, sea a bit rough at times but usually good swimming. Really relaxing stay.

Kadaltheeram Beach Resort was the last stop during our 2 weeks round trip in India. We enjoyed our stay there very much and we were very happy not to have booked an accommodation directly at the Kovalam beach.

“Nearest to the beach: Kerala house”
 of 5 bubbles 86jennys, 22 Mar 2015 | Read review
“Main building is less basic than the two traditional thatched Keralan cottages nearer the beach . Ground floor accommodation of main building does not have air con but was kept suitably 'cool' by overhead fans. Loads of space including 2 bathrooms and kitchen. You would not really want to cook your own food due to excellent food by Raj.Temperatures end of Jan/start of Feb were in low 30s.”
