Trivandrum to Kanyakumari with great Kovalam

Posted 23-Mar-2016 on Hotels
A last minute stop enroute to Kanyakumari. Initially planned going there and then finding a hotel. Went with my regular approach of booking via Hotels.com. Reasonably priced. I got some great travel advice from the Managers - Sanil and Ram. Both great guys and I will recommend this hotel to anyone I know that plans on going to Kovalam. And the two gents suggested that I ate at the Malabar Cafe and that was a great seafood experience. Great stop and stay overall and close to Lighthouse and Hawa beach

Our only 3 hours stay was really an awful experience: the lift was out of order, bed sheets were not changed...

“Amazing staff and Management”

Posted 09-Apr-2015
Pros: rooms
I have been staying in this hotel every time I visited Kovalam for past one month more than 2 times now, I am amazed with the quality of service and hospitality extended by all their staffs, especially front staff is doing a commendable job, more friendly and approachable at any time. What I most like about the place though is the perfect package of nice rooms, good location and even better facilities.

Pros: rooms
Wonderful feel to a reasonably priced hotel. The entrance is slightly long with a small passage where cars cannot come but it does give a perfect setting for a holiday without road noise and traffic. Rooms are large and mine had a balcony with view of trees and meadows...Two floors up there was a terrace where the hotel carried out Yoga sessions complimentary. It was amazing - our instructor was a foreigner with lots of experience and charm. The hotel provided good Service and told us about all important things to see nearby. Beach is less than 5 minutes walk and autos and taxis are available to go elsewhere. Will recommend it for your personal or official visit.

Home and save @ Vedanta Wake Up Kovalam Beach

Posted 30-Mar-2015 on Hotels
Welcome to Kovalam. As a traveller of your kind you feel home and save from the first moment until you check out, both as a backpacker (dormitories) or a settled guest (Double rood, A/C, En-Suite). Current manager Manu and his team is doing a great job. Vedanta Wake Up Kovalam is 2 min. walk distance to famous Lighthouse Beach and very close to Temple court. From TRV airport you reach the place within 20-30 min. by prepaid taxi at reasonable price. Remark: As it is located in a pedestrian area and surrounded by palms, you reach the Vedanta Wake up in a short walking distance. Manu and its team will provide all you require if you just ask i.e. mineral water, in-house Kerala dish, Kerala breakfast, Wi Fi in public rooms, back water trip, taxi to TRV airport... A day in the pool is available on request at nearby hotel - small charge requested. So, all in all, being happy having spend 5 nights and days at Vedanta Wake Up in Kovalam on my very first stay in Kerala. I will return. Hint: Don't miss the platform on roof top (5th floor) you get a unique 360 degree view - including Arabic Sea, Light house, thousands of coconut palms, Temple court. If only they could run a restaurant up there - would be a great party location.

Best Stay.......

Posted 23-Feb-2015 on Hotels
I stayed at Vedanta wake up for a business meeting and had a really great experience. I would rate it amongst one of the best properties in kovalam. I got at upgrade to the DDR and what a place it was. A very well laid out place to spend the night after a tiring day. They have ensured that the guests feel really comfortable and go back with a wow experience. The staff is also pretty cooperative and helpful. Definitely recommended for people visiting Kovalam

Average Place, Value for money.

Posted 13-Feb-2015 on Hotels
Stay was average, no issues though. Staff were friendly but even asking about amenities of the hotel, he didn't mention they have pool, we got to know when leaving the place. Not qualified/trained staff. Overall, it was average, having value for money compared to tidiness and cleanliness.
