Spent a couple of nights at Godsown Villa recently and was not disappointed. Myself and two friends shared a double room where an additional bed was provided at our request. The room and attached shower room were both spacious and very clean. Also with the room was a separate area that had a sink and could be used as a kitchen if needed. Nice balcony too! There’s a car park out back so you don’t have to stagger too far with cases. The beautiful, sandy, lighthouse beach is easily accessible a short walk through the narrow pedestrian lanes that are lined with small shops and places to get a massage, do yoga or get Ayurvedic treatments. There is plenty of choice in restaurants along the sea front - we used the German Bakery for breakfast and the ABC for dinner. Manager Shibu and Mahesh at the front desk were particularly helpful and made us feel very welcome. We were even invited to a free party\disco up on the large covered roof terrace one night. Possibly not everyone’s cup of tea and I was a little unsure what to expect but went along and had a lovely time - it felt very safe. I’d be very happy to stay there again. Thank you 🙏

I came to Kovalam to do a yoga teacher training course and went to God's own villa for a night of Indian dancing that the manager Shibu had kindly invited me to. They are all so friendly at the hotel and when I saw how nice the rooms were I decided to stay for a few nights. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Very big beds and lovely linen. It is really nice having your own balcony thought they could be a bit more private. All the staff are very helpful and kind, I would like to specifically mention Mahesh the front desk manager who did everything in his power to make my stay comfortable. The hotel doesn't have a restaurant but it is very close to lots of local cafes and restaurants and to the beach which has restaurants and cafes all along it. I can really recommend the Kerala Cafe which is painted blue and just down a small lane near the hotel or ABC cafe on the beachfront. If you want to order food the front desk will bring to your room. It would be great if they could add kettles to the rooms to make tea and coffee, though I am sure if you asked for a kettle they would supply one

Very lovely place to stay. All conveniences, tv, air conditioning, private balcony and bathroom. Two beautiful halls on the roof for yoga exercises or trainings. Very friendly personal. The only drawback is that there is no mixer for cold and hot water. I had to use a bucket and a mug. I would definitely recommend this place.

good rooms friendly staffs and beautiful location just 100 meter distance from beach You can start your day with yoga, jogging or a swim, followed by a healthy South Indian breakfast with lots of local fresh fruit. The days can be quite warm, so you can either enjoy the beach under an umbrella or if you decide to go to an excursion, you will be happy to get back to this oasis of calm and enjoy a fresh juice, tea or a local coffee on the roof top. There is a very good ayurvedic clinic just next door where experts can advise you a specific treatment if you have health or weight issues. If you do not have specific issues, you can just enjoy relaxing or shooting massages done with local organic oils and herbs. In the evening you can benefit from the sea breeze and the sunset on the roof top or go out to one of the beach restaurants where you will have a wide choice of fresh seafood. I could carry on writing more about this beautiful place, but I thing the best way is to experience yourself the beauty and calm of the Godsown Villa.

I spent 3 weeks in this new and modern family-owned hotel and I can't wait to go back. Everything is perfect: the location, the owners, the staff. They all go an extra mile to make your holidays unforgettable. The rooms are clean, spacious and very well-thought: you can install a kitchen if you wish to cook yourself. All rooms have a big balcony where you can relax under the shadow of the surrounding palm trees after a long and warm day on the beach. The beach is only 200 m away. There are restaurants and cafés nearby, you will not need a car to get around, Nevertheless, if you want to discover the area by car, they are happy to help you organise the trip. Kerala in general is one of the best places in the world if you want to take care of your health: prevent, relax or getting back into shape. You can start your day with yoga, jogging or a swim, followed by a healthy South Indian breakfast with lots of local fresh fruit. The days can be quite warm, so you can either enjoy the beach under an umbrella or if you decide to go to an excursion, you will be happy to get back to this oasis of calm and enjoy a fresh juice, tea or a local coffee on the roof top.

We were in this hotel for 14 days, all rooms are new, very near to the beach. Fruit market and supermarket is 50 steps from the hotel. I travel very often and can compare the work of staff in different hotels. Would like to mention specially a very friendly staff of the hotel who works in the evenings and night Akhil, who helped us from the first our step in the hotel. He was very polite and educated, tried to do our trip as happy as possible, to solve all our problems and to explain and show all places of interest nearby.
