I would say talk to them and try to get a room at the lower section which is at seaside. I stayed in upper section.. but still... More

We arrived in March for what was to have been the grand finale of our trip to India, anticipating a relaxing beach-front oasis along the Arabian Sea.

We loved our stay. The meals on the terrace overlooking the Arabian Sea were great, the staff delightful, and the Ayurvedic massages were excellent. Our rooms were lovely and the gardens beautiful. We loved swimming in the Arabian Sea near the resort.

My wife, four friends and I have been there in December 2015/Jan. 2016. Thapovan is more an excellent recreation center and not just a hotel. Thapovan has a fantastic seafront location in a palm grove or A/C cabins uphill with a marvellous view over the ocean. We like to mention the arrangement of the individually “hidden” Bungalows under the palm... More

I booked this hotel after reading many good reviews on Trip about how amazing the hotel is but unfortunately apart from the good landscaping and view from the room everything else was disappointing.

A beautiful setting, with fantastic views, but the bedroom was poor, looking very tired, and old furniture. Th beach could be fantastic but is about to be ruined by the emergence of a massive roadway approach to a new port being constructed just about 100m along the beach. We believe that about half of the complex will be acquired by... More
