Fantastic generous buffet at the Grasshopper restaurant at Uday Samudra Hotel Kovalam Kerala. Don't get mistaken but it's name there is lots of non vegetarian cuisines too. The staff are very welconing and specially made pani puri for me. For 950/- plus taxes one gets Italian, Chinese, Continental, Indian and mixed assorted snacks and fruits. Not to mention a huge array of sweet accompaniments. I ate the grilled fish and seafood soup along with some Chinese fried chicken. You would like these if you like a balanced taste. The Kerala dishes are plenty but I shall keep them for lunch. Choose a table close to the buffet but away from the front stage where a lot of cultural programmes and loud music performances take place.

Conveniently located at the white sandy beaches of Kovalam, just 15 meters from the sea,the Uday Samudra Hotel Kovalam Kerala is a 5 Star leisure beach hotel.Although it has a brief drive in and small parking area, It is so expansive and huge that it is said to be an attractive gourmet and vacation destination by itself. The Grand extravagant lobby, multiple entry lounges setting, good wood work and azure pools, together with adventure and sightseeing facilities, spa, cuisine and its whole ambience is dedicated to one's satisfaction in a luxurious hospitality environment. The hotel boasts of five gourmet outlets, spas, beauty saloons, beach cafes and spacious lawns, blue water pools and luscious foilage all set in four tranquil acres by the sea . It is an award-winning Hotel and rightly so because you can see the intricate finish to the hotel, where detailing has been given great attention. What I loved about the hotel is that art works adorne the walls, murals and paintings too. A huge wall painting adorne the garden wall facing the pool. The property is also decorated with exquisite stone and marble statues dotting the poolside, Gardens and beach areas surrounding the hotel lending it class. I advice you to book a Sea facing room. I also advice you to use this hotel for a family vacation and make maximum use of the beaches. The Uday Samudra Hotel Kovalam Kerala does the state of Kerala proud, for sure.

The Courtyard International is an open courtyard gourmet outlet of the Uday Samudra Hotel Kovalam Kerala, it offers multinational varieties of Indian , Continental, Grills, Steaks and Seafood dishes . It's open air cuisine center and has a buffet only in the luncheon time. It's an ideal place to grab a bite specially after a swim. Do have the fish grill and fish curry here. If you find it too hot during the day, use the place for a quick snack for sure.

Out of the World Experience¬Ě

6.3/7
Posted 9 Jul, 2013

I visited this Resort in Oct 2011. I selected this property after doing a lot of spadework on the net and let me share that my hard work paid its dividends. Right from the moment I stepped into the porch of the hotel, I could feel that we as a family had arrived at the right place in Kovalam, the destination for families, lovebirds and what not. Uday Samudra is situated at a very ideal location on the Samudra Beach. Although I had done my homework on the net but to corroborate the same I went to all the known properties in the area including the five star properties. Let me share this that the layout of Uday Samudra and the sort of private beach available to the guests in unmatched. The beach is the most clean beach available in comparison to other properties. I stepped out of my room to the swimming pool and hardly walked 50 steps to the most scenic beach. Mornings were really amazing with batches of fishermen pulling the fishing nets. Getting friendly with them was very easy and I pulled the nets with them for nearly two hours every day of my stay at Uday Samudra. A very good exercise early in the morning to be rewarded with a rejuvenating dip in the swimming pool followed by an excellent spread of breakfast to quench the desires of the empty and well worked out stomach. The staff in the resort is very courteous always looking forward to make you comfortable and pamper you. The eating joints provide you with the choice of menu which in a way tells you to come and eat the stuff and do justice to the taste buds. A very well though menu, which is available 24 hours to the guests. My children freaked out to the fresh thin crust Pizzas and Burgers with French fries while we laid our hands on one of the best preparations of the sea food we ever had till now. In the night the whole area turns so mystical with the sound of the waves, if you keep your balcony door open, that you feel invited to sit on the wall and watch the waves dancing on the beach. A paradise for couples on their honeymoon. We are very happy with the experience in the resort and would definitely like to come back to the best resort in Kovalam. Executive Chef Mr Rhynold is just too good and a very pleasing personality. This resort in my opinion is the best in Kovalam.

The rooms are very spacious with good service

6.6/7
Posted 2 Jan, 2015

The rooms were very spacious. Services provided by the hotel staff were very good. Staff was professional, helpful and friendly. Food served was also very nice. The location of the hotel was easy to travel as it was just outside the city and on the beach. The hotel was around 12 to 14 Kms from the station. The exterior of the hotel was very gorgeous. They had two swimming pools inside and it looked like a resort. Check-in and check-out was very fast. The room was very well maintained and they changed the bedding daily. There was a pool view from the room. Food served was really good. In the morning breakfast, they had a lot of varieties. They had a good menu for dinner also. Every day they changed the menu. They had gym, spa, a library and other activities.

The hotel was located conveniently hence I did not find any difficulties in finding it. The staff members at the hotel were friendly and professional in service. The ambience was very well maintained and room provided to me was neat and clean with basic amenities in proper working condition. There was no delay during check-in and check-out process. The hotel is worth for the money and I recommend this hotel to other travellers.
