The best thing about this place is the stunning view across the beautiful garden through the coconut palms to the sea. The whole place is really shabby though.

The location of the hotel is really good with a great sea view and a private beach. Rooms are average but the hospitality by the staff is excellent. Breakfast menu can be improved by having a few more options. Kovalam and light house beach is walk-able through the beach way.
