Had a wonderful two nights stay in Thapovan Heritage. Property is divided into two parts, upper one and lower one which is at the beach (I mean right at the beach!). There is a village road that can be accessed to go from lower part to upper part and vice versa. This is a steep 5-7 minutes walk, however a... More

We loved the food and the feel of the place very much. the beach cottages are non A/C but they provide with an extra fan if necessary. There is... More

First things first, this is one of the best located hotel we have ever stayed. This resort is located almost 6/7 k.m away from kovalam beach towards poovar. If you want to go direct its better to book a cab through the resort,which will cost you around 900 INR as there is no such cab available around station/bus terminal. OR... More

Generally, Kovalam including the beaches is commercial but this is located around 3km away in a quaint little corner. I guess that's what makes it so special.
