The Thapovan is divided between two sites, one on the hill with a view over the bay and the second (150 metres away) by the sea. We stayed at the site by the sea. The welcome was genuinely warm and our room (in a traditional bungalow) was large, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. A bonus is the private terrace with comfortable outside seating. The food in the restaurant was very good (especially the vegetarian food) and the service prompt and polite.
The staff were helpful and always smiling. Future guests should be aware that the beach just in front of the hotel is accessed via rocks and is often inaccessible due to the tide. The true sand beach is 200 or so metres from the hotel. Being an ayurvedic resort, many guests are there for "cures": as "normal" tourists, we found the other guests rather cold and the atmosphere rather serious. This is however a minor point.
