What can I say about such a wonderful sojourn in the affectionate and comforting company of Ambika at Subeesh. Even tho the accomodation is more than homely it's more the people you share a place with that make it so memorable. And so long after the rooms we stain fade from our memory, the people we share with remain ever in our heart. Such is the Subeesh homestay a very special place in our hearts due to the beautiful dedication and friendly relation of Ambika one of the original local amily members who exemplify the easy flowing spirit of Kovalam that I recall 40 years ago when there was just thatched huts, paddy fields and coconut trees, oh yeah and 8ft perfect surf without another surfer for a thousand miles. This beats 5star accommodation any day . My sincere gratitude and hope to return as soon as providence allows. Namaste and wishing all a wonderful stay...you won't want to leave.

Room Tip: Go for the top floor and get to know the proprietor

We spent 3 weeks in January and had a wonderful time. Vijay and Ambika were very friendly and gave us a wonderful welcome. We became friends over breakfast which began our day. They helped us with information of the locallity plus travellng further afield. The hotel is very clean and comfortable with a balconly to sit and enjoy the sounds of India. Ambika cooked us a great meal of fish, chicken and vegetables. India's warm weather matched the warmth that Vijay and Ambika gave us.

Room Tip: 103 had a fridge.

My wife and I have just got home after staying 4 weeks with Vijay and Ambika at Subeesh. In all the time we were there nothing was to much trouble. Ambika looked after us and always had time for a chat at breakfast time. Vijay unfortunately was taken unwell during our stay but kept in contact by phone from his hospital bed.
The hotel is only a short walk from the main beach and resturants. Subeesh is well maintained and is kept very clean by Ambika herself ( she says no one does as good job as her).Over our time staying with them we regarded Vijay and Ambika as friends, travel guides and a mind of information.

Room Tip: There are a lot of stairs to cope with so no gym is required. Only some rooms have ac and certain ro...
