Have just returned from nine nights at the Abad Harmonia and have nothing but praise for this hotel. If you are after noise and night life then dont come here. This place is set in a small fishing village amoungst the coconut palms and is an oasis.
We stayed in one of the cottages and were not dissapointed, rooms were spacious with good AC fridge and coffee making facilities. The rooms were cleaned every day and clean towels proivided each day too.
The breakfast was plentiful and the staff were very attentive and would cook you eggs any which way you wanted- which is a bonus for me as I am not keen on spicey food !.
As stated the staff are most attentive and can organise any trips/taxis etc at a moments notice.
As also stated this hotel is away from the main resort in Kovalam but I found this to be advantageous as the tranquil setting aded to the ambiance if the place.

In short if you are looking to experience the real India with a touch of luxuary then this is the place for you

Room Tip: Choose one of the cottages...bliss

Five days of ayurveda does leave you feeling refreshed and alive! I have had the best treatments here and it is a must visit. The property is small and cute with coconut trees all around. The service and food seemed alright and the rooms too, were quite comfortable. The only disadvantage here would be the location, the property is slightly away from the mainland. It is situated in Chowara which is 10kms from Kovalam. Nevertheless, it is ideal for people looking for a place away frm the maddening crowd.

Hotel is nearly 10 Km from Kovalam beach but 500 meters from another beach, the location of hotel is kind of in the village but nearby beach was awesome..we have been given corner rooms on 2nd floor, we ask for change in room but everything was booked that was being told to us by manager but resort looks very empty. Food was good in restaurant but less in quantity. overall good one if you are spending less then 3,000.

The catalogue says "just 500 metre away from the beach..."." located in kovalam.....", these are misleading facts. On our way from Kumarakom to Kovalam, we decided to spend some time at the Kovalam beach to relax and were under the impression that we would be going to the beach later in the evening.. TO our utter shock and dissapointment, the resort was (and is) way far in Chowara. There are no signages on the way. Somehow we reached the resort and as soon as we entered, there was another surprise. The room had glass doors, washroom window was also in disarray, thecurtains were not joined....

For dinner, we ordered a cheese/paneer dish and we are able to chew and gulp it. I had not eaten harder cheese before and my notion that "cheese is soft" was brutally shattered. Assorted vegetables were equally terrible.

The staff at the restaurant was friendly and courteous.


The resort's address is NOT Kovalam. Don't be mislead to thinking that you will be staying at a beach resort at beautiful Kovalam. The place is a 30 minute drive from Kovalam. We stayed there for 3 days during summer vacation. Even though it was peak holiday season, the resort was barely occupied. Therefore, there was no buffet breakfast and most of the items on the menu were not available. The facilities in the bathrooms were poor, with cheap toiletries. Television reception and channel availability was very poor. Even mobile reception was disturbed. No health club/gym. And above all, there wasn't even room cleaning!!! Our towels werent replaced for the whole 3 days and beds were also not made!!! The pool was ok, but not well maintained, and though the website said that it was open 24 hours, it was closed at 7pm. Dont be mislead by their webpage - the real experience is nothing like the description on the net. And especially dont be mislead by the 'abad' name - that's the main mistake we made. This resort is nothing like the other Abad hotels. If you want a beautiful beach holiday in Kovalam go for the other REAL beach resorts like UDAY SAMUDRA, TAJ VIVANTA etc. This place is a REAL disappointment!!!!!

we had a 2 nite stay here... first impression of this hotel while we reached there thru narrow lanes was not worthy,,, though getting in and seeing the poolside view got some relief.. rooms are average and not what abad name personates,, food has its given flavours in buffet but still lacks when it comes to varieties.. the beach is 5 mins walk but is very lonely and ppl like me wud not go for a swim at such place.. u wud not find any company here... the best part was the pool.... a DJ was placed for a measly cost at the poolside and we all had grt fun.. the area around pool is well maintained and decorated.. the staff is helpful but they need to work on room interiors..

Room Tip: choose pool facing rooms on the ground floor or a deluxe room near spa is the best location ..
