We had booked for a beachview superior room but got a free upgrade to the club room on arrival.Staff was very polite and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. Food was OK in general although they could improve on their buffet menu.Oh wait..the best thing was the view from the room.Almost felt we were floating on the sea..All in all an excellent hotel with exceptional customer service

Very private and secure exotic location. Staff is responsive and friendly. The spa was fantastic and very reasonable for the services provided. Easy to relax by the pool and the suites are extremely well fitted and luxurious.

Wonderful secluded setting after the chaos of India so a fabulous place to unwind in peace. Bungalows with views over beach were ideal escape. Only criticisms would be that it would have been good to know you could t swim in the sea on the private beach for a lot of the year including now, the food was lovely but a bit limited if staying for a week and the Internet was not good. However the setting and tranquility made up for most of that
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.
