We stayed in the Sarayu Villa for one week this spring,and had a fabulous time.The villa was so spacious and clean and with just the 4 of us staying there,we plenty of private space.

The location is perfect with lots of privacy but within walking distance to all the beautiful beaches in the area,shopping and great restaurants.Being just minutes away fro th Arabian Sea,there was no shortage of fresh fish and spectacular views...we just loved it all. Though it was certainly very hot from the 20th to the 27th

Angela Harrison,the manager and neighbour was so helpful with all kinds of information from tours to where to eat and what was safe..

When Angie is not there Kuinny her assistant and great take you anywhere guy is just terrific.

So to wrap it all up,we had a very lovely time time during our stay in Kovalam

Management response:

So pleased you enjoyed your holiday stay in Kovalam,& Sarayu Villa,it was a pleasure to have known you all, & hope one day we will all meet up again, kind wishes to you all. Angie

We have visited Kovalam many times but our first visit to this house. It is managed by Angie who also owns the Alarek properties where we normally stay. They were occupied so we visited Saraya. It is large and airy with good size rooms and good equipment.
It is in a quiet area, a short walk from several beaches or main Kovalam.
It was very clean, looked after by Shagodala. The 1st floor balcony outside was nice but a small kitchen area on this floor would be an asset. We just carried everything up and down.
A good base.

Management response:

Thank you for your positive feedback, yes I agree ,a small kitchen upstairs would be beneficial, will put it to the boss !
