I visited Kovalam in first week of Feb and stayed in this hotel for 3 days. I opted for deluxe room with sea facing view. The room is basic but it has a big balcony where you can have a breathtaking view of the sea which is very refreshing. The hotel has a private beach which is very clean. It...

It was our seond stay, and as amazing as the first one. Dr. Sajitha is an extraordinarily gifted doctor and lovely woman, attentive to our needs and ailments. The healings - massages...

Lovely hotel - comfortable clean and spacious room with good air con, excellent bathroom. Never used TV so can't comment. Lovely, private balcony overlooking the gardens/beach and sea. No lifts in hotel and to get to restaurant you go down stairs, to the pool another flight of stairs and the beach is down more steps. Keeps you fit but not...

Easy walk to the busy beach and cafes but a more beautiful location. Very helpful staff. Lovely open air restaurant overlooking the beach. Good buffet breakfast . Great swimming pool . Comfy bed and lovely room with sea view and terrace but the room could do with an overhaul.

I stayed with my family for one night. Room was neat and clean facing towards sea. TV is old type needs replacement. Food is costly and very less quantity according to price. Breakfast was very nice. Staff was courteous.

The upside of this property is that they offer a private beach...but its not as clean as it should be. We booked 3 rooms for the same category and same price. One of the 3 rooms given to us was much smaller than the other two. The rooms are sea facing - but the sea is visible only from the...

Whilst booking any hotel, preference for any customer would be to have a beautiful view and if view has the gigantic Arabian see, what else can one ask for when all rooms have the same view. I was mighty impressed not only with the view but the overall hospitality and on top of it the Ayurveda backdrop ticked all the...

If you're looking for luxury rooms and contemporary decor then look away. If you're looking for a private beach coupled with a well staffed and professional treatment and massage centre then go on in. Yes, there is no wifi in the rooms but you'll always find a decent crowd huddled around reception tapping away at screens and we got into...
