For busy bees, time is very precious, air travel may be the only obvious choice, in which case Trivandrum International Airport is the nearest one (12 km from the airport is Kovalam). I was very eager to fly for the 2nd time and soon logged into google to view the images of Trivandrum International Airport.

The Train journey from Bangalore to Kovalam is awesome. No tiring so you can enjoy next day in Kerala. Train timing are very suitable for office goers. Get down at kochuveli and take a cab ride to kovalam beach. Cabs are easily available at the train station. Need to bargain little bit though.

The hotel is located right on the beach and has a swimming pool overlooking the ocean. Very nice staff too. The rooms on and above second floor are best choice. Prefer rooms which have lighthouse beach view. Fresh fish food looks awesome in the restaurant . Free breakfast has limited options...more »

Mode of Transport:Bus
The bus left the destination on time but arrived 2 hours late than its scheduled arrival. No halts for food or toilet on the way which made people get irritated. The bus driver would halt on the road side if asked for wash room which was quite annoying. No packaged water was also provided during the journey so have to carry sufficient water prior departure as the bus doesn't halt at any services.

The car facility was included in my travel package. I can rate the car facility average. The driver behavior was so so. Road condition was good, view was good and on the way there were lot of restaurants. I liked the travel. Beach is awesome. Swimming in beach-side is good experience.

A serene place devoid of busy city life which gives relief and freedom from your moribund city life. Best time to enjoy is evening and night. One can spend hours on the beach.
