The location of the property, the view from the rooms, the beautiful secluded beach and the size of the rooms are awesome. Though if you are any more than 5.5” in height then the bed size might be cause of concern. No room service and restricted options for food & non-alcoholic beverages. Communication with the staff is a challenge. What makes up for all of these is the sea view from the rooms. If you want to manage the other challenges there is no better place to be in Kovalam.
Highly recommend this place to spend your an forgettable holidays. Excellent place which we have been visiting constantly since year 2018. It’s real paradise where you can rest and treat your body and mind. Everyday therapeutic treatments (according to old Indian medicine- Ayurveda) give you excellent chance to recovery after living busy life in a busy world. The variety of food and quality (all are grown in its farm) are wonderful and delicious. The staff of the hotel are very friendly and very helpful, they are happy to help 24 hours. Moreover this hotel is eco friendly, plastic free and pay a lot of attention to social responsibility. The owner of the hotel has built a school. Plus he supports local community from his income getting from hotel. It means that when you choose this hotel you don’t only pay for your room, treatment, food and doctors consultations but you also support school and local community.…

Bethsaida Hermitage in kovalam is one of the most beautiful properties with a private beach. This property is located right on the shores of Arabia sea with nice sea view rooms and great food. The best thing about Bethsaida is the price point and people factor - Compared to the so called popular resorts in Kovalam Bethsaida is definitely cheaper but doesn't compromise on the quality and features. The people here are truly awesome - especially Anil and Vincent were extremely helpful. We were a family of 5 adults and 3 kids with very specific food requirements for kids. Every single request of ours was catered to without any hesitation by these 2 folks. We stayed there for 3 nights and it was absolutely blissful and serene. You can just sit in front of your room and watch the waves crashing for hours and you wouldn't get bored. There is also ayurvedic packages to fill your soul and body. Will be back next year for sure😃…
My husband and I have stayed at Bethsaida for 4 unforgettable days, the selection of this place was accidental for us, but we were pleasantly surprised and will come back many more times. First of all, it is located in the marvelous spot: between palm trees on the cliff with the ocean view. You can access a tiny sandy beach which is clean and almost all the time empty. The surroundings are spotless and well-kept. There are two big swimming pools: always clean and warm. Food at the restaurant is freshly cooked, most produce comes from the own farm which doesn't use pesticides, every day different selection. The owner, Frederick Thomas, is one of the most interesting people we have ever met, he is always available and took us on the tour to the garden, we saw how everything grows. You can fish from the cliff, or swim in the ocean, but only with the life guard, who is very professional and sporty. This place is 25 years-old, but you feel it's timeless, all the design is reminding of old-time Kerala with traditional woodwork and paintings. What was appealing to us is that all the personnel is local, well-trained and has been working there for long time, they know everything you need. We cannot think of any negative aspects of this beautiful place. Prices are complete normal for such a service. Definitely a recommendation for everyone visiting Kerala.…

3rd time here. Diligent and nice people, excellent location, perfect place to recharge your batteries! Massage is outstanding and rebuild your phisical conditions completely. Highly reccomend! I will come back again.
Came to India during Covid-time to visit my mother that lives in India. Traveling around with her I found this paradise. Excellent location, Seaview from everywhere in the resort and beautiful private beach. Best Ayurveda treatment ever, my mother looks 10 years younger and I enjoyed very professional Yoga classes. The staff was so nice, didn't feel like a hotel, more like a beautiful home!!!
Came here for honeymoon and were treated so well. The place was quiet and peaceful. The beach was much cleaner than other beaches. All the staff were very friendly and we did not have to pay extra for anything. Beautiful place.
