Ideales Hotel für einen entspannten Urlaub!

Posted 14-Mar-2016
Pros: Die sehr zuvorkommende und freundliche Betreuung durch das Personal.
Cons: Wir finden es so, wie es ist gut!
Location: Mitten in Kovalam, fußläufig zum Strand und zur Gastronomie.
Das Hotel liegt sehr schön auf einem Hügel, so dass man einen tollen Blick auf das Meer hat. Es sind nur wenige Minuten bis zu den verschiedenen Stränden, wo man sehr gut mit Meerblick essen und trinken kann. Die Anhöhe zurück zum Hotel kann man gut zu Fuß oder auch mit einem kostengünstigenTuktuk zurücklegen. Das Hotel ist im Kolonialstil gehalten und gehört aufjedenfall was Komfort, Sauberkeit und Instandhaltung betrifft zur gehobenen Kategorie Indiens. Das gesamte Personal ist ausgesprochen freundlich und zuvorkommend. Das Frühstücksbuffet sehr vielseitig mit einer stets wechselnden großen Vielfalt an indischen und südindischen Spezialitäten. Liegen und Handtücher sind am gepflegten Pool immer bereit. Eine Library bietet verschiedene Lektüre in mehreren Sprachen.

Very nice boutique hotel looking over Eve beach

Posted 13-Mar-2016
Location: Hotel is in a good position for access to the main Kovalam beach area.
Very nice boutique hotel overlooking Eve beach. Excellent views from 5th floor. We understand that the local management of the hotel hass recently changed - and it shows. The reception staff were excellent - very helpful and friendly. However, the restaurant and housekeeping staff appeared to lack leadership. Various items of maintenance were going on during our stay but it all seemed rather haphazard. We stayed here one year ago and the difference this time was definitely noticeable. If good management is not put in place soon the hotel's reputation will being to suffer. This hotel has been open around 8 years now which means the rooms are about ready for refurbishment. The restaurant here is excellent with a wide range of dishes available from the menu.

Bed Mites ruined my stay : (

Posted 16-Feb-2016 on Hotels
Arriving here was very pleasant- the staff were friendly and helpful, the view is beautiful. Were it not for a serious episode with dust mites in my room, it would have been a very satisfactory stay, but the second night I literally had to sleep on the floor on towels because the bed was infested w mites and they were crawling all over me, making me leave that hotel since the staff found no solution and management would not reverse the charge for that night. On top of it all I brought mites home in my bag - a very unfortunate experience.

Turtle (not) on the beach

Posted 02-Feb-2016 on Hotels
Room smaller than expected with interrupted sea view. Tatty,holed curtaining and noisy a/c.Bed linen clean but tatty.Grubby grouting and mould around bath.Gaps in the laminate flooring. No direct access to beach, no indoor pool, no swim up bar, in fact no bars at all-despite description provided. Excellent waiting staff at breakfast but reception staff a little lacking. In-room wifi very poor for most of the stay.Overall ambiance good.
