Resort is great, facilities are awesome and most important north Indian food is excellent which I'm unable to find easily. Rooms are big, staff is courteous. I recommend this if you want a peaceful hotel.

One the beautiful resort nestled near beach. Beautiful view from cottage. Totally njoyed the stay. Breakfast was monotonous, it didn’t include appam, they had dosa corner but not appams. Was disappointing.. Anyways if u are keen in relaxing this is the place.

Its a beautiful resort with very good views of the beach and lush landscape. We stayed in the cheaper Beach grove rooms. They are at a lower level overlooking the beach and you need to take a lift to the rooms after a 5 min walk from the reception.

On the positive side, the beach was a 10 min walk from the back gate of the property. The resort lawns are lovely. The pool was clean. The breakfast buffet was excellent.

The flip side was that the room we stayed in was an old construction...hence there were problems. The key card slot buzzed loudly like a door bell every time electricity went off or we put in the key into the slot. Room service can get slow when its raining outside since the restaurant is located at the reception level. The room floor got really wet when we kept the doors of the balcony opened. The lift stopped once and it took us 10 mins to come out of the lift,

Real God's own country. When we reached we were given Traditional Kerala style welcome. It is Rustic very Green Kerala style resort. Resort is 9km from Kovalam beach in Thiruvananthapuram. Sea view rooms and cottages are very good (see my photos). Resort has two swimming pools, one situated near Restaurant and other near beach. Resort is so beautiful that you will not like to step out of the resort. Buffet Breakfast is very good. We had taken Ala cart Dinner, It was very good and light on pocket. Staff is polite and with smiling face. Poovar island is 15 km and worth place to visit where You can see River meeting Sea and backwater boating. Beware of Cheats and thug's near Poovar area, charging Exorbitant rates of 1000/- per person for backwater boating. I had booked online for 400/- person (2100 for entire Shikara boat) for 1.5 hour Shikara covering entire Poovar Backwaters and pooovar island.

Lovely heritage-style hotel in well maintained gardens with wonderful sea views. Very comfortable room on 1st floor overlooking the sea (once we were moved from room no 54 where we were woken early 3 mornings running by the noisy little van collecting people’s baggage turning round outside). Room large and very clean, good A/C and all the expected services of this standard hotel. Excellent housekeeping staff. A safe and secure environment. 2 nice swimming pools although at the top one, there were not enough sun-beds due to their ‘reservation’ by residents often taking lengthy Ayurvedic treatments. Good restaurant with a wide selection of food. Excellent gift shop. Friendly, polite and helpful staff with very few exceptions. Value for money reasonable. On the negative side: it was difficult (often dangerous) to swim off the beach which was itself a little walk away; a constant changeover of guests, often in groups or taking Ayurvedic treatments; nowhere to sit in the evening with a drink and pass time with other guests; a bit isolated for a longer stay as quite a way from Trivandrum and Kovalam. Somehow, the 'wow' factor is missing.

Room tip: You will be woken early in the morning in room 54!
