We went to the auberge with beneath expectation, as the aforementioned is captivated by KTDC. Check in was and we were in allowance aural 5 min. Rooms were ok with adulatory toiletries and tea/coffee. The auberge is anchored on a acropolis like accumulation abreast Samudra Beach. You can ability a bank just walking from allowance admitting that's not acceptable for bathe as amidst by bedrock but you can airing to Leela bank which is addition 5 min walk. It has a multi cuisine restaurant but, didn't had lunch/dinner as ante looks little bit high. Kovalam has abounding acceptable restaurant so you can accept your meal out side. Arround the auberge there are abounding acceptable restaurants abreast bank foreground but a lot of of them were bankrupt due to off season. We banquet at ablaze abode bank both night area there are abounding restaurants and cafe. We absolved to ablaze abode bank every black and acknowledgement by auto. House befitting is good. Buffet breakfast was included in allowance hire and it was ok. Fresh bake-apple juice, toast with adulate and jam, omlet, corn flex, tea/coffee, upma, dosa and paratha. But to our abruptness apartment were adequately accurate except for the two cockroaches which we saw the bathroom. The amount of aliment was on a college ancillary comparing it to the quality. The allowance account agents were acceptable as they even came and bankrupt the allowance at night 10 alarm as the allowance was abounding of bank sand. The appearance of the bank and the acreage scaping of the auberge is absolutely amazing.
First of all I'm a bit late to post this review. This is the only time we stayed in a hotel during our Kerala trip. Our Agent warned us against it, but we insisted since it right on the beach and it was a good decision. The location is perfect, has great width of ocean straight from the back door/glass panel of the room, gazing through landscaped garden until the ocean meets the horizon. Won't even had to get up from the bed to see the ocean. There is also a private beach, just go down from the back of the hotel. Rooms were clean and spacious. Amenities were good and staff was very helpful. The only thing, and because of which I only rate 4 start was the food, it was way below expectation from a good hotel, both for dinner as well as breakfast. We had to scroll through every option at breakfast to find something which we can eat. If they could improve this, I guess they could attract many more guests.
