We went to Kovalam in Jan 2023, booked 2 AC rooms via Agoda and got good deal (Rs. 2700 per night per room) The staff was courteous and very helpful. Beach is very neat to this hotel but only a narrow passage is available to get to hotel from road, however it's only 5-6 min walk from road.

Rooms were clean and tidy with balcony. It doesn't have restaurant so we'd to order from outside. Getting veg food is a bit difficult at Kovalam and we've to somehow manage with the available options.

Over all a good experience.

Better than what we expected for this price. The receptionist was very friendly and informative. Other staffs were also good. Swimming pool was neat and well maintained. Rooms were clean. When we checked in the AC remote didn't work, but it was replaced soon. Only thing with which we weren't satisfied was that they don't provide food.

First time back to India since covid. Returned to hotel as last time was very impressed. The hotel is even better and was a great stay. Had problem with fridge but was replaced within a few hours. Great room nice pool and location. But what is most impressive is the staff. All are polite and happy to check everything is OK. There is nof one member of staff who doesn't engage in making your stay great.

Thushara is one of the better low budget hotels in Kovalam. Not fancy but clean and very convenient.
Staff are helpfull and sincere, rooms clean, water hot and the cleanest pool in all Kovalam.
We got a room on the ground floor (coolest) and opens to the pool.
When you are fed up with the hurley burley of the main walk, you escape to a quiet retreat only a minutes walk to the action.
1000 Rupees per night, and next to honest tailors and local food that dont charge western prices

A delightful small (21 rooms) hotel. The staff cannot do enough to make you happy. Sheets and towels changed every day. A good swimming pool and breakfast is included. I loved it,. A short walk to the beach and only a few steps from an excellent vegetarian restaurant.

Room:

Me and my friends are stayed here for 1 day. My favorite room is 304. It was a large size room and toilet, fan, king size bed, television with cable connection, refrigerator, reading table with 2 chairs and wardrobe. The Manager prasanth was too kind and helpful. Our room is near to pool so we enjoy a lot in here. We stayed here in off season so they charge as only 1000 rs for room but its worth more than that.

Food:

Food in beach near hotel cost like 3 star category. but not worth that much. Beer price is too high when we compare to government beverages, so its good to purchase beers from beverages and kept them in refrigerator. This room has a balcony we enjoyed our beer party in balcony.

Our first visit in Thushara was 1994 (more than 45 times we stayed in Thushara) still the same friedly and helpfull management and staffs with excellent service. We highly recommend this hotel when you visit Kovalam.
Excellent hotel located in the center of Kovalam beach really a quite location and privacy - 1 minute walking distance from the beach. Very clean spacious secure rooms and lovely balcony facing to the cleanest pool all in Kovalam. The bathroom was new and very clean with a hot shower and wall hanging WC. The room was cleaned everyday and provided fresh towels too. Room are very comfortable with twin bed, wardrobe, A/c, cealing Fan, Fridge, cable TV Wi-Fi access and coffee table with chairs. 24 hours manned reception and safe deposit locker free of charge in the reception. The pool side restaurant you get breakfast and you get Exellent sea food on request.

I visited kovalam and poovar between 25th Jan and 28th Jan 2018. The biggest mistake I did was to stay in Hotel Thushara. I saw the ratings in travel websites and found thushara has a good rating and so booked it and that was my nemesis. Since I was travelling with a kid I told them beforehand that I need a single queen size double bed and when I went there I found out they have not done any changes and it is the same 2 single beds joined together. Mind it the hotel is not on the main road it is in narrow dingy lane. For getting into the main road or hawa beach road you have to walk inside 150metres. There are 3 - 4 hotels on the main road like hotel marine palace, hotel sea rock , treebo moonlight which one can consider if one is staying in that place. The good part of staying on main rd is there are 2 good restaurants adjacent to it. They are harnos cafe and Rainbow restaurant. Whatever regarding hotel thushara the hotel is not at all well maintained. We found that small black insects are coming out from bed and from the sink in the bathroom. There are lizards everywhere. Further if you are staying in thushara stock up on mosquito repellents and odomos. The wash jet in the washroom was not working and it was repaired after a day. My son of 3 years threw up in the room due to the stress of the journey. I asked the room service to clean it up and I was declined saying cleaning will only happen after the cleaning happens for check out rooms. This gives a clear impression that they are least bothered when guests have checked in already. The food menu of the hotel is exorbitantly priced and if you are staying there you can visit a close by restaurant named janani. Another problem is if you are paying by card in thushara they argue with you and ask for additional charges. I have just been from kovalam and hotel thushara. The staff is good but overall the hotel needs to know how to be run professionally. So if you are going to kovalam go for better options and thushara is not worth it.

We have stayed at the Thushara Hotel many times and the manager is always friendly so are the staff nothing is too much trouble. They never seem to age unlike us. Linen and towels changed ever day, rooms cleaned every day. The location to the beach and restaurants very good. My only criticism is there are not enought sun beds. But saying that I think the owner is getting some new ones. One last thing a clothes aired for the balcony would be handy.

No, the hotel, like most others, cannot be reached by car. You have to park in the public carpark. They can meet you there and help you with your luggage
