The campus is huge and beautiful. I had stayed in the cottage which is a lovely private bunglow only from the outside. Inside while the bed and other furniture is ok, the bathroom are old and horrible. It old and hasnt been done in decades. The towels were dirty and stained. However the staff is very good and the canteen...

Great serene place. We felt a night's stay was not enough to see the entire campus. The in-house restaurant was good. The private sun rise beach which is 10 mins walk from the reception was wonderful. My non AC double room was clean and neat and served our purpose. Thank you Vivekananda Kendra. It was my first visit to Kanyakumari...

A silent place which has there own beach which is clean and tidy. The rooms are small, however the washrooms are big. Every AC room is equipped with a Mosquito Net which...

Nothing shanti about the accommodation here, full on noisey inconsiderate families who the centres 'quiet times' do not apply too. Western seekers do not go without highest rating db earplugs. Rooms noisy, good, basic, clean and ok, mattresses good. The grounds are ok, aspirations of the centre's founders good too, but...........it's definitely NOT an ashram in the true sense of...

First to mention, kindly do not expect this place to be a commercial hotel. This is an Ashram with travellers stay facility @very decent cost. We have stayed in cottage for 3 days. I would say it's completely different experience all together. Sprawled over 100 acres, Vivekananda kendra is around 1 km from kanyakumari railway station. Full of greeneries, this...

We stayed at the Vivekananda Kendra for 2 nights. We had book a cottage as we were 5 of us ( 2 families). The cottage was sprawling and very well maintained. AC,hot water, everything was working fine and couldnt ask for anything more. Very peaceful place, near to beach and other city attractions. Kendra has a restaurant within its premises...

Was skeptical to book the non-A/c rooms as read some bad reviews here. But it didnt turn out to be as bad as i only needed a place sleep over for the night. Our objective was to visit Kanyakumari for a day and all the main tourist spots including sunrise at beach and rock memorial. Sunrise was visible at sunrise...

A good tribute to the Swami and his pragmatic approach to life. A scenic location to watch the sea waters & Sun on the horizon. The infrastructure is reasonable . The boat ride to/fro , from the mainland was average & could be improved.
