The wifi is not connected in rooms,but when your are on holiday at just perfect location you dont need it either. The sea is visible from restaurant,rooms and gardens. Luckily when i was staying it was high tide so i...

As soon as we checked in the front of house staff were so friendly. Kitchen/restaurant staff also friendly. Pool is clean and tidy with a great view of the private beach. Pool towels provided although the sun loungers could do with updating. Rooms are clean and spacious although they could also do with a fresh lick of paint. If you...

Not so pleasant experience. Booked it via stayzilla. After getting confirmation they declined it. When I followed up asking for money refund from Stayzilla then I received the confirmation. Bizarre! The food was not delectable. I tried food in other Kovalam restaurants and found to be much better in taste. The bathroom was infested with insects. They did not provide...

We got a very good deal for accommodation at the resort through Agoda.com. The cottage was lovely, the swimming pool was clean and it had a lovely view of the ocean. Since this was off season, we could not access the private beach of the resort but had an enjoyable stay with good food and caring staff.
