This is my second stay in KTDC Samudra. This time I had booked for 2 delux rooms. The rooms were very nice. The view from the room was very awsome.. We got a smooth check in.. The staff were very helpful from the time of reservation. Especially front office staff Mr. Arun and Mr. Nithin Lal were very helpful and supportive for each and everything... Breakfast was included in our package. It was average. The room was spacious but bathroom is small, but adjustable. Outside area were well maintained. We enjoyed the stay very well

We stayed in Delux room 301 in the second week of March..the room has both poolview and seaview..when we stepped out of the room there was small sitting area and next step you were in lawn. .. one side was swimming pool and other side lawn followed by beach. Awesome.. When you step out of the room you feel that you are in a different world..You can listen the sounds of waves from your balcony itself.. Beach is in the backyard of the resort..the beach is almost like a private beach (away from the crowd ) Well maintained lawns and landscaped area spotted with rocks and coconut trees..Hammocks are very less..please provide some more.. KTDC properties always has an advantage of their unique location.. Staff were very helpful and friendly..Check in and check out were smooth but no Welcome drink on arrival.. Rooms are clean but the interiors , specially the Furniture looks very old and needs urgent renovation..No continues hot water in the bathroom.. Food was very average , not up to the mark .. if they improve in this area , KTDC Samudra will be the best in Kovalam..There was no a la carte option for Dinner, if you want a la carte option .. order for Room dining service.. We enjoyed the location and absolute value for money..

We stayed here for 3 nights and I must say the location is just amazing. We reached there in evening and it seemed a bit too dull. But the next morning when we came out of our room we were greeted with cool breeze and the wonderful scenic beach right in front of us with waves crashing into the rocks. It's a sight to behold. Their breakfast buffet is good. Lunch and dinner buffets were simply fantastic and considering the spread they gave it was worth every penny. The only complaint was the rooms are not upto the mark . Rest everything was 5/5. Recommended

The location of the hotel isn’t very far from Thiruvananthapuram airport and is perfectly surrounded by green lush gardens and a calm and peaceful beach which is considered to be private by KTDC Samudra hotel. No words can describe of how beautiful the whole property is. People at front desk, housekeeping, IRD are very helpful and will try to accommodate your request as much as possible. If possible try to ask for a room on first floor, they give a beautiful view. Rooms have balconies. Positives : • hotel has a special entry gate only for their guests to have access to Samudra beach • breakfast buffet has many options to choose from • food ordered from in room dining is tasty Few inconveniences that I faced : • No hot water in the shower or bathroom • the minibar made noise sometimes. I had to switch it off one night to sleep • wi fi in the room wasn’t working most of the times • TV had only regional channels I could manage with these inconveniences as well. I stayed for 2 nights. If peace and nice service is what you are looking for, this is the place.

we have stayed in the property on 25th and 26th February 2020. Best part about the property is the location, right on the beach. It is well maintained property. staff is very courteous. Front desk people were helpful and check in and check out is smooth. Offered a welcome drink also on arrival. Were given a ground floor beach facing room. rooms are spacious and is in good condition. Property is old, but is maintained well. Breakfast is good and have a nice spread. Dinner is not available in à la carte all the days, it depends upon the occupancy and if you still need to eat à la carte, then you need to order room service. They has an adult and kid swimming pool with attendant during operating hours. The grass lawns in front of rooms are really good and nicely maintained. Way to beach is paved and a security guard at the gate near beach. Overall a very relaxed and satisfied stay and a good place to stay.

Samudra has a great location. The rooms are sea-facing and provide a good view of the beach and sea. Our room was spacious and comfortable. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Both check-in and check-out were smooth. But we were unhappy about a few things: 1. The approach gate to the beach is shut in the evening, for security reasons, which may be a good thing, but this should be informed during check-in time, to avoid disappointment. 2. The Swimming Pool opens as late as 7.00 am, by which time the sun is out. 3. The food is no great shakes. I ordered a Fish Dish wrapped and cooked in banana leaf, which was served dripping in oil! 4. The room balconies have no privacy. Occupants of neighbouring rooms can actually cross the wall and enter into your balcony!
