"Very good location, beautiful views and good room."
We had a good stay in the hotel. However, the food quality needs to improve a bit, eg. a toaster should be kept in the breakfast room, so that fresh toast can be made and not hard toasts made in advance.

As Australians we only chose to holiday here (Kovallum Beach) because we were going to a wedding of some Indians. However we found this Resort was a wonderful place to have a relaxing and indulgent holiday. Our Sea View Allure Room was very comfortable for 3 adults and a real sanctuary. The Housekeeping (Raju, Anunda and Animesh) were so attentive, even leaving towel creations and we appreciated the complimentary bottled water and lots of bathroom supplies. The infinity edge pool was wonderful to swim in and enjoy the view across to the ocean. The resort is spread over many acres and it was lovely to stroll around all the way to the ocean and Bait Restaurant, and then catch a Buggy ride back up the hill. The buffet breakfast in the open air Jasmine Bay Restaurant was a good variety, with the chefs happy to cook eggs, pancakes, waffles and traditional Indian foods to order. We enjoyed delicious dinners there also. The staff like Nikky, Apendra and Chinky really made us feel welcome and took a genuine interest in the reason for our stay. The taxis were overpriced though (taxes are also added on) and the tours not worth it so walk to the road and hire a taxi and driver there or use a tour service. There are many that speak English well.

Nice clean hotel - 3 pools - very friendly staff, would try and do anything for you but it took a while and often would forget things. Limited alcoholic drinks but enough for us. Beach not great but nicer beach within walking distance. Good choice of food. Buffet dinner was 1000 RS but al a carte was only 350 Rs to 650 Rs. Lovely seafood cooked fresh in front of you. Definitely cater more for the Indian palate but continental snacks available (pizza, pasta, burgers etc.) My fussy vegetarian daughter always found something she liked. Overall pleased with our stay.

This is a very special place, tranquil, clean and safe. But don't go expecting Western standards of luxury -- what you are paying for is an unrivalled position overlooking the Arabian Sea, the lush and well-kept grounds, authentic Keralan architecture, and a friendly staff. Do book one of the Heritage premium cottages as near to the sea as possible, and immerse yourself in this green paradise. A week-long stay taking advantage of the (rather expensive) Ayurvedic therapies would be an ideal way to unwind after a wider-ranging tour of India, or for a self-indulgent break. You have everything you need on-site, so you don't have to brave Trivandrum or Kovalam (neither worth it). The Indian dishes in the cafe are delicious and good value; the boutique has some nice things, well priced especially with the generous discount offered. Enjoy!
