We contacted the hotel in good time to book a room with a balcony and we were not disappointed. The balcony had nets so there were no unwelcome birds in residence and was spotless.

Also, the rooms offer a great view of the beach through the extra-wide windows. The buffet breakfast, in the roof top restaurant overlooking the beach, was also very good with...

Our travel agent suggested us to choose this resort as there were no other options in Kovalam at beach side. We had a day visit to Kovalam too and trust we were so...
