Our goal was to spend a leisurely couple of days by the sea. We tried to choose a hotel that we had not been to before and were not disappointed. We got a room with a balcony on the fourth floor that had an uninterrupted view of the Arabian Sea. The room was spotlessly clean and much larger than expected, so were the attached balcony and bathroom. Bathroom had a huge tub. It was a pleasure to sit on the balcony and watch the magnificent sunset. The swimming pool was clean and nice and at the same level as the sea beyond. The complimentary breakfast buffet was excellent with enormous choice of western and Indian delicacies. We had lunch and dinner at the Catamaran restaurant by the pool side. Food was reasonably priced. Unfortunately we could only order liquor through room service and not in the dining area. The staff were friendly and courteous. The downside of the hotel is that they do not have a private beach. There are shuttle service from hotel to the public beach but no service back and you either have to make the ten minute walk back uphill or if you are lucky, find an auto that will take you up.
After enjoying House Boat gone to Kovalam Beach. Approx 5 hours run reached Kovalam. 4 star hotel Turtle on the Beach, Kovalam. When we reached we were too tired. A grand welcome by Hotel staff and treated as VIP. They gave us coconut water and cold towel for refreshment. After 5 minutes we checked-in. Our room was premium but they upgraded suite room in same amount :-) Feeling KING in king size room, there is mini kitchen, small fridge, grand room, changing room, huge space in balcony and Arabian Sea view from my room side was very superb. In early morning, view very awesome. Room is very clean and location of hotel is excellent. Hotel facilities are very nice, staff very helpful and room service on one call. Hotel infrastructure very excellent and there is very nice restaurant and food is very tasty. Swimming pool also there and there is Arabian Sea and Light House.
