We had a pleasant stay at Soma Palmshore. Hotel is located at Light House beach, with its own private beach. Commutation becomes easier as it is very close to Trivandrum Railway Station. Its location near light house beach is overwhelming as you can have calm surroundings and enjoy your stay better. Hotel's restaurant is good and overall it was a lovely holiday at Soma Palmshore. I would recommend this hotel as value for money.
A lovely hotel in pleasant gardens with a swimming pool. The staff are lovely and very friendly. They are very willing to help. We enjoyed the breakfasts and buffet. The waiters went out of their way to please and serve us what we liked.
Santhosh the Manager was particularly friendly and was always on hand to speak to guests and have a walk around.
Our room overlooked the pool and was beside the Ayuveda Centre where I went for a facial. I'd thoroughly recommend this to anyone and especially to those stressed or with health problems.
The Hotel is a great place for all age groups and close to the local beach. Well done Santhosh and staff
Basically the hotel is geared to Indian tourists, so the food is only Indian and, while satisfactory, is not really great value. The staff were all delightful but not really trained well. The pool was inviting but there were no lounge chairs or sunbeds available. It was near enough to a great beach but Kovalam itself was a rickshaw ride home at night......not expensive but some would prefer to be right in Kovalam I am sure.
The hotel was clean. We found it a bit difficult to identity but it is located very close to the beech. Unfortunately we didn't get the sea view room.The hotel manager was very kind and helpful. He helped us by providing some food stall suggestions and we had a wonderful breakfast made in the hotel. Over all i will rate this stay as wonderful.
I have booked my hotel through expedia. it is very surprising that they do not received the information about my booking. It took me several STD calls to confirm my reservation.
I have booked two rooms , both are sea facing . However they have allotted one room with sea facing while the other road facing.
My family really enjoyed our 12 hour stay at the hotel. The beach was awesome, maybe next we should come during the calm season of the sea. The sea was rough, but the hotel staff was there at the beach protecting us and guiding us from danger. The food in the restaurant was great. the hotel rooms were comfortable and the services were great. People were available at your need. The hammock was great and so was the pool. Our family really relaxed at this place. We also got an amazing massage at a reasonable price.
We loved our stay at this hotel. We had a big room overlooking the pool with a sea view and requested to be changed to a higher floor with a view closer to the sea. The staff was happy to move us the next day. We loved the cafe attached to the hotel and the choices for breakfast were excellent.
