This is the best resort in kovalam in terms of
Exotic private beach, sea view luxury cottage snd serene ambiance . Admist of other hotels in hawa beach which are congested though it is opposite to sea, this resort is such a peaceful and exotic one which has its own private beach. Swimming pool is clean and well maintained. Rooms are spacious and all rooms have balcony with sea view. Bed is cozy and comfortable. Ac was good enough. Main thing 24hrs hot water was available . We stayed there for 2 days for new year. New year celeberations like dance shows and lucky dip for two night cottage stay were amazing. Such a memorable stay. Thanks to the esort manager Mr. Subash who was very professional and friendly. He treats all the guest like his family member which is very important for hospitality field. Food was good and at affordable cost. Restaurant manager Mr. Shivaraj treats all the guests so well. Totallly the resort is very clean and well maintened. This is bcz of such a good cleaning staffs . Thanks to vijaya chechi, and other staffs who were very friendly and played with our kid. Our kid enjoyed so well and this resort is baby friendly. Which is most important for family travellers to look on.
Keep it up team. Best wishes.

We visited Soma Palmshore Beach Resort for New Year and it met all our expectations. The room was neat and clean having awesome Sea view from Balcony. The Aroma and Ambience of resort too good. Breakfast was tasty and having good options of Fruits, Juice and Multi-Cuisine food. Co-operative staff and they very well managed the New Year Function and Gala Dinner at very affordable price. We also won Complimentary Stay Voucher in Lucky Dip as part of New Year Party game. Happy Customer. Highly recommended resort.

Had a pathetic experience. When I checked-in my room AC was not working. Only answer receptionist had was we are working on it, entire bay of rooms were having same AC trip issue
we had to wait for almost 1.5 hours, AC for the room still wasn't repaired and they have assigned another room.we need to reshift the room with all luggage.
In bathrooms their are no exhaust fans in any of the resorts' room.Previous guest must had smoked inside the bathroom and bathroom was full of cigarettes' smell.
No one is wearing masks or following Covid safety protocols
Rooms are full of humidity and not have enough or any sorts of organic ventilation, you have to depend on good functioning of AC; if you are lucky enough only, otherwise it may can get tripped

Dear Sir/Madam,

Thanks for your stay and feedback. Your feedback is very valuable to us.

Somapalmshore resort is an exclusive beachfront resort and has a sea view from every room, sea view pool, open-air restaurant & sea-facing restaurant etc. All the rooms are open to the sea and it is fully opening to the balcony. All the rooms and bathrooms are well ventilated. The beauty of the rooms are, it is fully open to the sea and beach, rooms are so windy & cool.

We are very sorry for the unexpected power breakdown for 30 minutes and we rectified the same with in 30 mts. We already have a full backup generator and all facilities to overcome any such situation, but the power breakdown was an unexpected issue and we rectified it within 30 mts. Our manager met and discussed with you to sort your inconvenience.

We will take extra care and attention to offer the best service at all times.

The only positive about my stay here for 2 nights was the pool and the view of the beach,beach access. The rest was not a very great experience, firstly the entry to our room was mainly occupied with a housekeeping cart and some spare beds, we had asked for our room to be cleant and fresh towels changed.This was not done and we came back to the same room we left in the morning.On our last night, our air conditioner stopped working, we reported this to reception at 6pm,we were later told it's an issue for the whole floor and yet they had to only come and work on our AC unit till 10.30pm which was very inconvenient and it only seemed to be an issue with our AC. Over all of that,not one staff member apologized for any inconvenience, the poor AC repairman only had the courtesy to do that, the hotel is very old and so is the furniture etc inside.The geyser takes ages to heat.I would strongly suggest check other options nearby in Kovalam and accordingly visit.I wouldn't come back here esp due to the staff.
