  • February 2014
After beautiful, but a bit tiresome Kerala tour, my wife and I stayed four nights at this hotel. And that was a great end of a great tour of India. We simply could not find anything that was not right. Beautiful spacious room, nice terrace, great food and staff in restaurant, as well at the reception, and pool. Wonderful view of Indian ocean and tranquility at the pool. Food was great and we have enjoyed it all the time. One evening hotel organized a garden party, candlelight dinner, with live music (hippie style like sixties). During our trip in India ... we have been to 10 hotels, and this one is our top 3. Highly recommended for couples. read hotel review
