The Resort is really good, as mentioned in almost every other comment it is split up into two. The lower one is at the beach and definitely the better of the two. There is no swimming pool or Air Conditioning. The resort is on a small property and there is not much to do. The restaurant is rather good. The...

There is a village road that can be accessed to go from lower part to upper part and vice versa. This is a steep 5-7 minutes walk, however a...

We loved the food and the feel of the place very much. the beach cottages are non A/C but they provide with an extra fan if necessary. There is...

One night stay at the hotel, but many memories to take home to ! The location of the hotel is superb. We were well-attended. Just some suggestions to the staff: - Kovalam is not a cool place. It can get humid and hot many times. Restaurant at the beach property did not have any fan or AC. We were literally...

First things first, this is one of the best located hotel we have ever stayed. This resort is located almost 6/7 k.m away from kovalam beach towards poovar. If you want to go direct its better to book a cab through the resort,which will cost you around 900 INR as there is no such cab available around station/bus terminal. OR...
