This is the worst hotel in Kerala (I regularly rate moderately good hotels as 3 or 4, so rating of 1 is below poor.) that I have ever stayed in. In one word, they are CHEATERS! In the leaflet of our booking it was clearly written that, air conditioning is there. The hotel staff rudely refused to give us an AC room. Why you should not book this hotel - 1. They are cheaters and liars. They scam people. 2. They sell double rooms as triple rooms. There was no space for an extra bed. My IIIT hostel has bigger double rooms btw. 3. The washroom was extremely shabby. 4. Staff was extremely rude. 5. Filled with mosquitoes. I would suggest people to stay on some other less rated hotel. Probably they will have better rooms than these guys. The hotel guys claim that they donot care about user reviews. OKAY! To the cheaters of hotel thusara, You can have that advanced amount we paid you. But believe me, you will end up loosing your business if you treat customers like this.

This hotel is at 1 minute walkable distance from Hawa Beach. This is nice hotel at economical tariff. It has problem of vehicle access untill hotel but highly recommended and worth of money as compared with other highly charged hotels nearby...Pls note, always book standard room, economical room is not recommended...

We have now stayed three times at Thushara Hotel. For a central yet quiet location it is unbeatable, and the pool is great. Pools are not that common in Kovalam, and this one is kept very clean, unlike many other places. We found a few small improvements to our room: a couple of shelves in the wardrobe to make better use of the storage space, a shelf for toiletries near the shower, an electric kettle to make your own tea or coffee, and the old TV had been replaced with a flatscreen one. Generally, all the rooms could do with a bit of an update, but they are quite comfortable. The chef had gone, but then the restaurant had always just been a sideline. There is a limited choice for breakfast, but we were quite happy with our fresh juice, porridge, and toast. Eggs are also available, and sometimes idli or other Indian breakfast items. If you want more choice, there are loads of cafés nearby. All the other staff are still there, lovely people who do their best to make your stay a comfortable one. We'll be back.

This is our third stay at The Thushara and it suits us well, it is quite basic but we had clean bedding and towels every day and it is two minutes walk from the beach. There is a nice little swimming pool which is very clea, manager and staff are very helpful and use of the safe is provided free of charge. Prices are excellent but it would not suit guests who are used to all inclusive, We had a fridge in out room and our own balcony for drinks, reading etc.

Great location: 2 mins walk from beach. All the advantages of being close to beach without noisy waves at night. Accommodation very clean; rooms cleaned and change of sheets & towels every day. Lovely clean quiet swimming pool with loungers. Towels on request. Ample breakfast available. Nothing too much trouble for Manager Prasad and his staff. Will be going back for sure.

This little hotel takes some beating, it is situated close to the beach, it is very clean and comfortable. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the pool is probably the best we have found, private and crystal clear water. Very good value . Book it, you will not be disappointed. We will definitely stay here again.

he staff were so incredibly helpful. The pool was lovely. The location is fantastic, it’s right by the beach but back one row so it’s quieter. It could have been a little cleaner, the sheets and towels were a bit stained but that was the only downside.

We had an enjoyable visit in Nov/Dec 1916 so we decided this time to stay for six weeks from mid November 2017 until after Christmas. We had asked for the same room as last year, near the lobby, as this meant a better Wifi reception. Unfortunately there were some noisy guests on occasion who managed to disturb our sleep. Previously I had spoken to the owner about some simple improvements like a few shelves in the wasted space in the lower half of the wardrobe. Nothing had been done which is a pity. They could do with replacing the rather outdated TV sets. They also discontinued the provision of drinking water in the room. The owner seems to be focused on adding some 'economy' rooms and an Ayurvedic clinic - I have my doubts as there are already too many in Kovalam. However, my partner consulted with the doctor and thought he was good, but did not have any treatment. Otherwise nothing has really changed, and we still think this is one of the best options, especially if you want a pool (the sea is not really suitable for swimming). It is in a quiet location, but not far from the action. It is very clean, welcoming and quite comfortable, the pool is excellent (they now have nice new parasols from Switzerland) and prices are still quite reasonable. The staff haven't changed, most of them have been there for years, and really are one of the hotel's greatest assets. They are helpful, smiling, hard working, nothing is too much trouble. If we return to Kovalam we will certainly stay again.
