Maharaju Palace
Ranked #13 of 52 Hotels in Kovalam
Reviewed 12 November 2011

This is a beautiful hotel that looks a bit like a house. It has a wooden stairwell and nicely decorated rooms. We were greeted with a smile, which was highly welcomed after trying to find the hotel for a long time. Because we were in the low season, we were able to negotiate a good price for our 2 night's stay.

The rooms are comfortable and extremely clean, with the prettiest mosquito net we had ever seen. The staff is very discrete and quiet. The breakfast is excellent and is included in the price. There's a rugged pathway that leads to the beach (about a 2 minute walk). The hotel has convenient showers at the front of the garden, which is necessary after coming from the beach.

If you're interested in Ayurvedic massages, there are places all around the hotel which offer this service. You can even ask the hotel to recommend one, and they will (and most likely take a commission from the center that you choose).

Room Tip: Choose a room on one of the higher floors. It's nice to look down and see what's happening...

Couldn't fault Maharaju Palace.
Lovely room, attentive staff, fabulously quiet location but still only 2 minutes from the beach front.
Highly recommended.

We spent 2 nights in Kovalam Kerala in Maharaju Palace. It's a small hotel very close to Kovalam Beach. The owner is a Dutchman. It's a lovely place, with a very nice garden and a well-kept house. Very clean and very good service. Breakfast is included in the price and you can order other things too.
We stayed in "the summerhouse" because the hotel was full-booked. It was a house a few minutes away from the main place, also a real palace to stay ! We can recommend it very much, but make sure to make reservation in advance because it's always complete. GREAT PLACE TO STAY !!!!!
