I was visiting a friend in Trivandrum, and almost on arrival I was whisked to Thapovan. I went, but reluctantly. Then, I walked through a huge antique gate into a verdant, peaceful garden; tall coconut palm trees; buildings in red brick; old teak pillars ……. There were no garlands, no tilak, no aarti, there was only genuine human warmth, welcoming...

We stayed at this hotel for two nights. When we arrived our travel agent had booked us into the "hide out" rooms however there were many stairs up and down to this room from the reception and restaurant and we did not get wifi reception in the room. We decided to upgrade to a 1 bedroom cottage which was not...

Awesome ambience. Specially I liked the Orchids. Almost every house has a sea view, though it's not accessible. The owner is really nice and so all the staff people. There are two sections. I would say talk to them and try to get a room at the lower section which is at seaside. I stayed in upper section.. but still...

We arrived in March for what was to have been the grand finale of our trip to India, anticipating a relaxing beach-front oasis along the Arabian Sea. What we found was perhaps the most magnificent accommodations we had seen in the country, with a huge BUT: very noisy huge dredging equipment in the adjacent water and on the adjacent beach...

We loved our stay. The meals on the terrace overlooking the Arabian Sea were great, the staff delightful, and the Ayurvedic massages were excellent. Our rooms were lovely and the gardens beautiful. We loved swimming in the Arabian Sea near the resort.

My wife, four friends and I have been there in December 2015/Jan. 2016. Thapovan is more an excellent recreation center and not just a hotel. Thapovan has a fantastic seafront location in a palm grove or A/C cabins uphill with a marvellous view over the ocean. We like to mention the arrangement of the individually “hidden” Bungalows under the palm...
