The Best destination !!


An array of beach activities attract thousands of tourists throughout the year to this perfect beach setting offering panoramic views of the Arabian Sea. A port city and one time active harbour for Chinese ships and trade, Kollam Beach is home to Chinese fishing nets, Chinese water pots and sampan-like boats seen even today. It is the world's best destination. One should visit it once in a lifetime. Hotel is also superb. Its bit costly but having wonderful atmosphere and having see facing balconies. The service is also good. The best desination with best people.

Overall a good experiences


I actually went to Kerala for my vacation. I wanted to enjoy my stay, and I got the best choice and that was Raja. The most highlighting factor in the hotel was the fish curry. The best fish curry i've ever had. I recommend my friends the Raja hotel. But only one problem was that it had no WiFi facility. Hope they would enable the WiFi facility as soon as possible. Currently the major factor that a hotel attracts customers is the WiFi facility.

Tasty food and good service


I visited Kerala for an holiday a month ago. A one and only word is perfect for this place is 'Heaven'. I stayed at this Raja Hotel and found that this is the best hotel I have ever stayed. The hotel was exactly the same as it was in the photograph. The bed was very comfortable. The hotel offers very tasty and healthy food. The services are very good and the staff handles the requests timely. At last I want to advice all the travellers that this is the best hotel to stay in Kerala.

Worst hotel to stay not recommended


Rooms were not cleaned, flush is not working, food with creatures and management is not feeling responsible and worst service. The items are costly and front office and housekeeping won't take care you. Overall it is nightmare. Customers will not be cared and I sincerely advise please don't choose this hotel ever.
