I booked this hotel after reading many good reviews on Trip about how amazing the hotel is but unfortunately apart from the good landscaping and view from the room everything else was disappointing. Our room was nice and clean (non a/c beach house) and had a good view of the sea. Beach was clean in patches as they are making...

A beautiful setting, with fantastic views, but the bedroom was poor, looking very tired, and old furniture. Th beach could be fantastic but is about to be ruined by the emergence of a massive roadway approach to a new port being constructed just about 100m along the beach. We believe that about half of the complex will be acquired by...

Thapovan is an ideal place in Kovallam having two properties, hill and on the beach. This place is mostly frequented by Europeans because of the German connections of the owner. Stayed in beach side cottage which was just 20m from beach and had a great sea view,the beach though is dangerous for children.The staff and food coupled with Ayurveda body...

Perfect Location for a getaway, we stayed right near the beach. The food at restaurant was good but little costly compared to the others. Overall a good experience . One suggestion form my side : The beach cottages should also be provided with A/C as it gets really hot in the noon.

Only worth thing about the place is view, garden landscapping and the beach (which is as good as private).. Rooms are mediocre with mediocre amenities such as blanket instead of comforter and basic soap.. The day we checked in, it started raining at night and they didn't have enough umbrellas.. They told us that all the umbrellas were with other...

We were at Thapovan from 20th to 22nd of Oct with our li'l kid. When we checked-in to the hotel, they upgraded us from Eagles Nest Room to the cottage. I found this funny as I had earlier wanted to book the cottage which was not available then. Pros: + Clean room with a view of the ocean downhill +...

One big disappointment - I booked a beach cottage with sea facing view and paid a premium for it but we got a room which didnt have any sea view and it was some distance from Sea. In fact some of the cheaper room had better sea view. Overall property is good and service is nice..

If u love kovalam beach, or beaches as such... U r gonna love the cottages. Beautiful quiet and peaceful, one can enjoy the essence of kerala here. The massage service is also good. Only negative - the food. Overall worth a try.

An excellent experience in this resort that is literally on a private beach. The service was very good, with the staff doing an excellent job with good service and warm hospitality. To top it all, the food is excellent, with the opportunity to chose from a wide range of the local cuisine. Even though there was no air-conditioning in the...
