This was my favourite hotel out of the several I stayed at in India, and I had the best sleep here. It had great views and was located in a quiet area away from the nearby main strip. We also had a tasty English breakfast at the restaurant in the Rockholm Hotel that was right below the Aparna. I found... More

Our room was spacious and the bed linen and towels were changed daily. The mattresses and pillows were typical of Indian guest houses - hard! WiFi is intermittent, like the... More

Our room was on the first floor and we had wonderful views across to the sea over-looking palm trees. Charles was very kind and hospitable and the room was spacious and comfortable. The bathroom too was spotless and the balcony was the perfect place to sit and admire birds and fishing boats or just chill out and read a book.... More

Booked the Aparna close to a year a go thanks to that wonderful man Saj (@Sajhome Cochi) and so pleased we did. Direct email with Charles who always responded promptly.

Aparna Guest House at Kovalam is a nice property. It is near to sea beach and the access is easy. The rate for upper floors is a little bit high than that of the ground floor. Any one may contact to this Guest house -- aparnaseaside@yahoo.co.in Phone Nos. +91 0471 2480950 & +91 0471 2480951
