Fantastic!! All the staff were very hospitable and warm. It was just the perfect relaxing holiday. Food was amazing, location perfect, some shops just outside the resort. I have no complaints.

Nice location. Close to beach.

Posted 11-May-2015
Pros: Location, food.
Cons: Air- conditioning, staff honesty!
Location: Kovalam - lovely place to visit
Nice rooms in nice location. However, severe problems with air-conditioning. The AC would shut down at regular intervals, and on many occasions during the night we would listen to the AC stopping ever minute, listening to it working for about 10 seconds, after which time it would cut out again. This would happen throughout the night. The fault was reported, but nothing was done about it. My son left is mobile phone in the bedroom on our date of departure, and it has never been seen since. The hotel reception staff have stated that staff have looked for the phone, but as it was left in the room, it should have been located. I would suggest therefore that there may be one or two dishonest members of staff working at the hotel, and as a result, I will not be recommending this place to anybody.

Somatheeram

Posted 04-Mar-2015 on Hotels
This is more like a retreat than a resort, food and service in restaurant very poor unless you wanted the buffet. Off menu choice extremely poor, food cold and tasteless. Nowhere else to eat in the local areaif you want a retreat Ok but as a 4 star resort it was not up to standard. I would not stay again.

Great Location and Ayurveda Treatment

Somatheeram Ayurveda Resort is a great place to visit in Kovallam. It is famous for its ayurveda treatments. Staff is very welcoming and friendly. It has its own private beach which is very well maintained.

Great staff, dirty beaches and very noisy resort

Posted 18-Jan-2014
Pros: People and staff were great. Beautiful Nature.
Cons: Expensive. Beach was dirty. Resort was noisy. Staff was paid very very little.
Location: Beautiful nature. beautiful setting. very noisy. very dirty.
One can not say enough good things about the people of India and the great staff of the resort. The negatives are: (1) the resort charges western rates for a very average place, and pays the staff very very little. It does not feel right to enable such exploitation of local people. (2) the beaches are dirty. The resort advertises the beach front location, but does not want to clean even the front beach, (3) the access to the beach goes through a water way that is very filthy. If you have any scratches, you should not walk through the water way to the beach, (4) the resort is very very noisy. there is a church and temple with audio recordings on speakers playing from roughly 5AM to 11PM. Besides that, crows, dogs barking, neighbors kids screaming, and garden equipment running most of the day time.

Beautiful relaxing getaway

Posted 09-Jan-2014 on Hotels
We arrived at 5am directly from the airport and at that time our room was not available, so we were given a lovely little temporary room to sleep and freshen up in. They called us as soon as room was ready and moved all our things for us. Service was fantastic, Monisha looked after us and was wonderful. The resort is surrounded by nature, the sounds and sights are relaxing and calming. We didn't have time to try the Ayurvedic treatments but others seemed to think they were great too.. doctor, dentist consultancy and treatments all appeared to be high quality. Overall an amazing experience and would love to return there someday.

Good Ayurvedic Resort for treatment

Posted 02-Jan-2014
Pros: The staff is excellent and friendly. My wife mentioned she liked a plant when we were there, they gifted that plant in a pot to take.
Cons: Only more choices in food items for breakfast buffet.
Location: Lighthouse beach at Kovalam is about 6 or so km away, awesome for fish and tandoori lovers. Many water activities at Lighthouse beach.
Hotel has got very limited choice of food, no tandoor items, breakfast was very very limited as the food was basically for folks who were getting Ayurvedic treatment done. This resort is very good for privacy, relaxation if you undergo Ayurvedic treatments. The beach is not very near you have to walk down a 50 staircase steps and then 50 more steps.
