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.
