“there are no words. i wanted to write the review while staying there.”
Reviewed 14 March 2011

When one plan's a trip the first thing one does is to decide which place to go to. This was the case before staying at Paradesh Inn. If i do plan to go back to Kovalam again it will be because i wish to stay with Mauro & Marina the most amazing host.

This place is not advertised at all only tripadvisor has it. The e-mail address and phone numbers are also not advertised. Yet i was able to find them. I want to yet i will not provide any as this will be given by Mauro himself. I leave the finding to few lucky ones who will get the chance to stay with them.

Every inch of the property has art in it. Art is blended well with utility, so it does not hurt.

The rooms are comfortable with a good private cozy atmosphere.

The place to eat is on roof top overlooking the sea from top of a hill. The view is around 180 degrees. The feel of the place is very different from any other place maybe due to the color scheme. I did go to another property in kovalam a 5 star property where rooms were costing 10000 rupees. I went there not because i wanted to stay there but just to be more informed and kill time while returning from trivandrum as it was on my way. If i were to choose between the two i will choose Paradesh Inn. Although i will not tell you the price as mentioning the price where emotions and service from all your heart, will be degrading it. The stay was priceless.

I realized that it's not the place you go is important but it's the people you meet are important.

Mauro & Marina are truly indian the place is strictly vegetarian. The food coffee the breakfast , pizza parotha, cake were the best . In 40 years i have not had such good breakfast as i did here. My stay was for 4 days i wish i had extended.

Good things should be summarized without a word. The word's above have not truly expressed my real true feelings which i would have really wanted to express.

The real way it can be expressed is just a smile.

Go to Kovalam for stay in Paradesh Inn.

I will suggest this place not just to just people who are travelers but artist, musician (as mauro plays guitar), architect, interior decorator.
And people who wish to lead a different life. To get a new perspective to life.

if you want to get out of buzzling street life in India and just enjoy with lovely owners Marina and Mauro, you should not miss this amazing place of energy, magic and peace! We could stay there before the season even started, which was very friendly of those two, unfortunatelly missed out on their brunch, they use to offer in season-time, but we could enjoy one of Marina´s original italian sunday pizza. We Loved it!

I stayed for two weeks with my boyfriend, my mom and dad while we were visiting my sister in Kovalam.
The rooms were fantastic, romantic and well air-continioned:)
The vegetarian breakfast was amazing and the staff were always smiling, helping (with everything e.g. anti-mosquito spray, doctors appointments, travel advises, sending e-mails/fax etc.)
I would definately go back to this place - anytime! My only worry about writing this rewiev is that there will not be room for me next time;)

Having been to Kovalam now for 6 times I can say that I have finally found home, away from home. Paradesh Inn is where comfort, cleanliness and friendliness all merge, creating an unforgettable experience, urging you to return, literally counting down the days.

This is one of those reviews that never should be published. Why tell the rest of the world that paradise is available? They will only try and get in there, pushing up the price, changing the ambiance.
Well here we go:
Paradesh Inn sits high in the valley overlooking the coconut palms and the sweep of Kovalam bay. The building is new and built to European standards. The style is Greek islands, white and blue exterior. A large roof terrace with a view to die for. The rooms are designed after the different elements in the Hindu Pantheon, fire, air etc. The host couple Mauro and Marina (Italians who have a deep love and respect for Indian culture), are the most engaging of hosts. The food is vegetarian/Italian/Indian, well the food is out of this world and one of the major problems with staying there, when is enough, enough! I am booked this winter 2010/2011 and will be putting my name down for the following year. The place is addictive.
