Beach Grove Room
I stayed at this hertiage property with my wife for 2 nights. It was completely relaxing. The room is well furnished with a balcony. We had a lovely Ayurvedic massage in their treatment rooms. However if you plan to visit the spa, you have to pay for the experience. The restaurant is clean and offers some mouth watering local keralite food. The coconut fish and prawn curry is simply awesome. The stuffed crabs...but take care to mention to the one taking your order to avoid making it spicy otherwiseexperience.

It is one of the best hotels in Kovalam. The staff are very good of the hotel, their service is pretty prompt. There is a swimming pool in the hotel. Rooms are cleaned well by the staff and the interiors were good of the room. I like the restaurant very much of the hotel we had our food there. I enjoyed, having a great time at this hotel.uch of the hotel we had our food there. I enjoyed, having a great time at this hotel.
Ultimate property. All of us had a great time.
Our stay was comfortable with decent clean rooms. Location and service was good. The only comment I have for the food is bad.
Great heritage property with very friendly & needful staff. Everything was perfect.

loved this property.. a pure 5 star experience. loved the food and the pool . very friendly staff.. The prices of Massages may be can be re worked since Kerala is Known for their Ayurveda Massages.. Worth recommending
This is the place to go if you're into yoga retreats, Ayurvedic massage & health treatments. We really just wanted a beachside break but got quite into the healing rhythm of the place after staying there a couple of days. It feels fairly old & the private cabins with sea views are the best; some other rooms aren't that great. Small pool; nice little restaurant; buffet ok but not outstanding; staff all very helpful & friendly. We didn't swim in the ocean as it looked a bit rough & dirty, also quite a hike to get there as the hotel is on the side of a cliff (!) but did enjoy watching the fishermen & listening to the religious chanting each morning. There's quite an unusual atmosphere/vibe in the area - hard to describe - a bit haunting & possibly not to everyone's taste although we enjoyed our time there & really relaxed. Great massage & steam treatment! And if you're looking for a terrific taxi driver walk down to the beach & find Anthony. All round a positive but very different experience.
We were just here for one night before flying on. The hotel is on a cliff side and rooms have views over the beach. We stayed beach side and there is also a section that is cliff side each with a pool. Cliff side is near the restaurant and reception area. The beach side is basically at the bottom of the cliff. There is a steep walk down and then a lift to the rooms. The lift broke whilst we were there so we had to use the stairs, so if you are staying beach side you need to be fit, just in case, otherwise you would be stuck in the beach section. The lift was fixed quickly though so no great problems for us. Rooms were large but smelled a bit fusty and we had t ring for a hairdryer for the room. Although the hotel is 'on the beach' you have to cross the road and a football area and wade through an inlet (or take a big detour) to access the beach area with beds and umbrellas, its quite a hike and not suitable for people with mobility issues or can not walk distances. There is no swimming on most of the beach as the sand steeply drops away on the edge of the water, there are flags and a safe swimming area further up the beach near to the sun bed area. The restaurant food was good at dinner, we went for the buffet and the chef cooks food in a tandoor. However, we left early in the morning and asked for a packed breakfast. This was less than good really. A small tomato and cucumber sandwich and a banana and no drink, poor show for bed and breakfast we had paid for. I definitely think that could be improved.
My wife and I have just spent 9 nights at the Travancore and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel staff are friendly and attentive. They greet you with a smile and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Our room was spacious and had plenty of storage. The bathroom was okay, having a large shower. Our balcony overlooked the gardens and had a great view of the beach. One small issue was the wooden panels obscured the view if you were sitting on the balcony. The breakfast buffet was excellent, plenty of choice of hot and cold, international and local food. We ate from the a la carte menu in the evenings as we preferred to try local specialties. The food was superb and if you prefer there is an extensive menu of international cuisine. We also ate a couple of times at the Ocean Grill restaurant by the lower pool. The menu is less extensive but provides a nice alternative to the main restaurant. We normally spent the morning on the beach and the afternoon by the lower pool. The hotel provides sun loungers, umbrellas and towels in an area that is more of less reserved for tourists. Lifeguards are on hand to patrol if you go swimming as the waves can be high and the currents strong. The beach is used by lots of local fishermen and you can watch them at work in the mornings bringing in their nets and sorting their catches. One warning though is that if you walk on the beach in the morning you are likely to encounter the local fishermen deficating at the waters edge. While this is pretty unpleasant you have to understand that it's not seen as wrong by the locals. It rather put us off swimming in the sea and strolling on the beach! The hotel does offer some limited excursions however you can probably source them cheaper by speaking to the local taxi drivers who hang around outside the hotel. We went to Kovalam one evening which is a nearby resort that is more commercialised and it has a lot of restaurants and souvenir shops. We recommend doing a one day house boat trip, the day long excursion to Kayakumari and the backwater river tour.
This is a good beach Hotel but the rooms were basic ( but clean) with good cupboard space but had a musty smell. comfortable bed. Tea and coffee facilities in the rooms. There is a Church very close which has loud services but we were not disturbed. There is also building work going on on the next plot of land but it wasn't a problem. Good menu and helpful staff. No spirits licence just wine and beer. The problem with this Hotel is that we didn't realise it is in 2 parts - one part up the hill is charming little chalets. Yoga courses and massages. Down on the beach is as if you are in the low level accommodation. The pools are lovely and there is a shop on site for gifts and crafts.
