Not so pleasant experience. Booked it via stayzilla. After getting confirmation they declined it. When I followed up asking for money refund from Stayzilla then I received the confirmation. Bizarre! The food was not delectable. I tried food in other Kovalam restaurants and found to be much better in taste. The bathroom was infested with insects. They did not provide... More

We got a very good deal for accommodation at the resort through Agoda.com. The cottage was lovely, the swimming pool was clean and it had a lovely view of the ocean. Since this was off season, we could not access the private beach of the resort but had an enjoyable stay with good food and caring staff.

The property is actually quite well kept and definitely ha a good location. The price of about 300Rs a night would be quite acceptable UNFORTUNATELY THAT IS THE PRICE THE LOCALS PAY Foreigners are charged almost 100Euro/night AND THT IS DEFINTELY A TOTAL RIP OFF However, if getting ripped of by taxis, in the markets etc etc is not enough...

The bed for two was well adjustable for three. Our deluxe room was well maintained with a mini fridge. The food we ordered for a day's lunch was naan and chicken kadai. . Absolutely... More

Sea facing room is very good and the staff were extremely polite. Nice place to stay in Kovalam. It has a private beach, restaurant and swimming pool. But authentic kerala food is not available. As it belonga to Somatheeram auyurvedic resort chain, people will expect food with medicinal value. Otherwise, it is best.

This was my worst experience in a resort. It doesn't provide any facilities( no coffe/tea maker, no water bottle). It has the worst food I've ever had. It clearly does not have the qualities of a good resort.
