This hotel is located at an awesome location. It has a private beach called Samudra beach and a swimming pool with maximum water depth of two meters. So you have to really swim at deeper end. All rooms are alike with a balcony facing towards swimming pool. Food is good but service a bit lazy. You have access to cleanest beach in Kovalam and that is the best part.
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.
I had been to this hotel in January. It was my honeymoon trip. The destination was awesome specially the beach. The hotel was close to the beach and the best way to reach the hotel by car. The hotel appearance was maintained specially the ambience. Front office people were average as they were not prompt. I booked the room online and the room provided was small and not maintained well. The hotel service was not on time and the food was horrible and everything was cold specially the breakfast which was so called complimentary. There were few facilities available at the hotel. The overall my stay was average and not satisfactory. As it was not worth the money paid.
I visited this hotel in the month of February and it was a honeymoon trip. The location of the hotel was good. The appearance was good and not that much good.

This is at a very beautiful location, all green and blue is what you see from here. It is besides Samudra beach which also is like a private beach to the hotel since it is a silent beach, no crowd is seen here. Very peaceful and relaxing The room dining menu is very limited and the room service is also something they really need to improve since it is the only point where it lacks.
