We returned for another stay at the Aparna. The accommodation and service are always excellent. Charles and his team maintain a very high standard and they are very pleasant and helpful. The rooms are the cleanest we have found anywhere in India and the location is perfect for access to the beach.

My wife and I have spent a month here, each year, over the past ten years. We have never been disappointed. The friendliness of the staff, the location and the great weather always make our holiday special.The rooms are serviced each day and most of them have superb views of the Arabian Sea. The Kovalam beaches are within easy walking distance and the interesting town of Vizhinjam, with it's bustling fishing port, gives a real flavour of rural South India. We have no hesitation in highly recommending the Aparna. We meet many returning guests each year which reinforces our high opinion of the Hotel and it's staff.

We stayed at Aparna for a week at the start of our holiday and for a week at the end. It is such a nice place. We stayed in the top flat, with kitchen and huge big windows looking out on coconut trees and the Arabian sea. it costs a little more but SO worth it . We had difficulty leaving the flat sometimes it was so comfortable !! The other rooms are lovely too, most have their own big balconies. Super cleaned every day. Charles, Satyan and the lads were so kind to us ,always there to solve any problem. Ever helpful. We hope to get back some day to Kovalam and this is definitely where we'll stay

Room Tip: Rent the top flat !!

The location of this guest house cannot be beaten. The spacious shared balcony was lovely for relaxing with a book, and the short stroll down to the beach was very convenient. There are even tuk tuks waiting to ferry you back up the hill to the Aparna at the end of the day if your legs arent up to it!

Charles is lovely, very helpful and accommodating. Unfortunately we simply couldn't manage without air conditioning and left a day early, but he didn't charge us for the extra days even though the booking was non refundable.

Would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a peaceful stay in Kovalam.

I have stayed at Aparna several times, most recently January 2014. The staff, Charles, Satyan, Tilakum, and Babu, go out of their way to make my stay comfortable and enjoyable. The room is thoroughly cleaned every day (new sheets and towels, floor washed, windows cleaned), laundry is done perfectly and returned on the same day, room service is prompt, and the staff will always find me a good taxi driver at a reasonable rate. The staff also notice what a particular guest likes and go out of their way to provide it. The hotel is away from the craziness of the main beaches, but next to one of the nicest small beaches that is never crowded. There are restaurants and shops nearby.

Room Tip: All rooms face the ocean and have a view of palm trees and waves. They all have balconies, but I prefer the lower level ones with the wide terrace.
