I didn't stay here but went with extended family for a lunch get together. The ambiance was right for the get together. The food served was excellent after which everyone took a stroll to enjoy the lushly green lawn and the beach view. Staff was very courteous.

Very beautiful property right on the Kovalam Beach. USP of this resort is its location. Beach is about 100 meters from the room and you can even have a nice view of sea from your room itself. Good swimming pool and garden area. However its service needs improvement so as its food.

I have stayed here for 3 nights. It is a very old hotel and need renovation. Food was average and not to the North Indian taste. Hotel location is very good. It has nice views and very nice lawns. Dinner location is also perfect.

Beautiful scenery with tall palm trees and lush green grounds right on the shoreline of the Arabian Sea. Very peaceful atmosphere away from the main touristy section of the Kovalam Beach; however, the buildings and the rooms are in need of updating. Our room was very clean but outdated.
