Fodor's Review

Among bougainvillea, coconut palms, banana trees, orchids, and acacia stand thatch-roof, circular cottages and traditional wooden houses, most with commanding sea views, making this hotel a popular choice. It's next door to the Niraamaya resort and about 15 minutes from the main Kovalam beach. The cottage rooms are comfortable and spacious, with bright-white tiled bathrooms. The traditional nalukettu (quadrangular buildings) are beautifully maintained homes, with wooden rafters and dark-wood windows that open out completely. A well-lit path leads down to the crescent-shape beach.
