We stayed here with family. Good spacious rooms, comfortable bed, very close to the beach, send floors onward have beach view and balcony. No Tv and tea, coffee kettle in the room. That little disappointing. If you want to stay near to the beach it's worth it.

A lovely little hotel at the better end of Lighthouse Beach. Quiet location but very close to lots of restaurants. Great sea view. Exceptionally clean and friendly and helpful staff. The room had a fridge and kettle so it was nice to be able to wake up and make coffee. Nice complementary products in the bathroom.

It was my first trip to India and I am really glad I stayed at the Little Elephant Beach Resort. I will certainly come back and would advise friends to go there. The hotel is recently renovated and has a tasteful traditional decoration. Everything is very clean. My room was spacious with its own balcony, a romantic kingsize bed, and a modern bathroom with a spacious shower. Also AC, mosquito net, ceiling fan and fridge available in the room. The view over the sea, the coconut trees and the beach was fantastic. You can walk in 1 minute to the beach and the strip where you can find all kinds of restaurants and shops. Also safe in the evening. I had ayurvedic treatment for 2 weeks at the hotel. Good value for your money. I would recommend to consult the ayurvedic doctor to prescribe the treatments and ayurvedic medicines if you have time for 7 of 14 days. Very good hotel staff: very friendly, English speaking, always available and very quick in organizing anything I wished for a reasonable price. I just had a wonderful time at the Little Elephant Beach Resort!

I stayed at the Little Elephant Beach Resort in March and I highly recommend it. The room was very spacious, clean and beautiful - and I especially enjoyed sitting on the balcony or lying in bed with the view onto the ocean. Staff were very helpful and friendly and assisted me with all my requested and as a solo female traveller I also felt safe there. It’s a great escape from the business of the beach but you’ve still got the view. If I ever come back to Kovalam, this is where I’ll stay again for sure. Thank you to the LEBR team!

The hotel has a beautiful view on the sea, just set back from the beach walkway. This is a great hotel, the staff very nice and helpful. This is my second time in this hotel and will definitely be back. Yoga classes in the morning or at sunset are very good. A great place.

The rooms are well furnited in a beautiful indian style, all people working in the hotel have been very kind and helpful with any questions we had. the rooms are very well maintained and cleaned every day,The beach is just in front of the house, about one minute walk. There are a lot of very good restaurants in walking distance.

We came to view rooms at The Little Elephant, unfortunately we couldn't stay because they didn't have a room for the 4 nights we wanted. The rooms we saw were so clean with 4 poster beds and lovely views of the beach. I hope it's okay to review as we didn't stay, but we would definitely come back. You're right by the beach and have access to a wide range of cafés and restaurants but it feels so tranquil.

For "Little Elephant", read "Little Gem". A great boutique hotel in a great position, just set back from the beach walkway, offers a perfect place to stay in Kovalam. The rooms are spacious and extremely well presented. The views from balconies are unbeatable and the daily - and thorough - cleaning service provides top notch accomodation. The staff are most welcoming and ensure a pleasant stay in this excellent hotel. I highly recommend this property to anyone who plans to visit Kovalam. Book early however to avoid disappointment!
