Hotel is beautifully located near the beach... But I think they can improve very much upon services. And the house keeping staff is Lil rude. Food is average .. Rooms are not modern style.. Can improve upon rooms and bathroom.. But the surrounding is awesome

Wonderful Location.. good service and helpful staff!! The hotel is perfectly located near the light house beach and has a beautiful private beach too. One thing that I really like about the hotel was that the hotel is very clean and the garden area perfectly maintained, an awesome place to sit and relax. The swimming pool is particularly inviting and has a small little kids pool thatnwas the most favourite spot for my 3 year old son.Had a lovely time here with my family!!

The food here is decent specially the breakfast, for dinner ala-carte is better than the buffet, so no complaints. The ayurveda spa is also nice and worth a visit. You would like to book it in advance as it is a little difficult to get an appointment. they also have a doctor there to help you decide which therapy is best for you.

The rooms there are average, but have a great view of the garden and the beach!!

The private beach adds to the overall experience. but the passage to the beach was not clean and maintained (this is the one thing about the hotel that they should improve).

Room Tip: Definitely the ground floor room - near the garden, pool and beach.

when we arrived at the hotel we were a bit disappointed in the lay out of the room.after a very comfortable night we got out of bed & looked out over the palm trees down to the pool,the private beach & out to the sea & things started to look different.the hotel staff were excellent especially our room maid & the gorgeous young lady in reception.our bedding & towels were changed every day & cleanliness throughout could not have been better.although advertised as being supplied we had to ask for a fridge which we think is an essential in a country like india.

Room Tip: ask for a sea view & also the top (3rd) floor.

Very good hotel right on Kovalam Beach. We reached hotel at 4 am on 7 may 14. Checkin was quick and in the room in next 5 mins. Had sound sleep. View from the room was awesome. It was raining for last couple of days hence the atmosphere was cool. Spacious clean room and clean bathroom. Breakfast serve was good. Did tried some room service but the quantity was below average and cost at higher side. Clean swimming pool. Has direct access to the beach but due to rains it was full of mud and was stinking.
Overall very good hotel for staying on Kovalam beach.

Room Tip: Beach view rooms are best

We are the only hotel in this area providing life guard, security and cleaner service at the beach. Our restaurant and room dinning menu price is not revised last four years.If you compare with any standard resort in this location it is less.
