We wanted to visit the southern tip of India - Kanyakumari !! and since all know that the 3 seas (Indian Ocean, Arabian Sea and Bay of Bengal) meet here therefore Hotel Tri Sea seemed a good choice.

Tri Sea has a spa, pool and restaurant too - the buffet breakfast at the restaurant...more »

Good roads in Kanyakumari dist, but on the way Nagercoil junction very difficult. All items are available on the way ie, Trivandrum to Kanyakumari. I don't know that the points to visit during the journey so some places are missed. No proper road signs on the way.

It was a memorable journey for us. It was a pleasure trip. The railway station was good. The climate was good when we visited. The toilets were clean. The travellers were friendly. The food were good. Kanyakumari is a calm and quiet place which is good for relaxing.
