    Inexpensive Hotel in God's own country

    by

    This hotel offers you intimacy of 21 air conditioned, well-appointed rooms to choose from, with spectacular views of sun, sand, sky, surf ... and a sea of coconut palms. It is situated a few minutes walk from the beach and the Arabian Sea, which can be seen from most rooms, although it is worth confirming this facility at the time of booking. An ideal time to visit to ensure constant sun is between Jan - March. If you desire peace and quiet, this is the hotel for you.

    If all the laying around in the sun becomes too hectic, then you can avail yourself of the in-house Ayurvedic Rejuvenation Centre at the hotel, which is fairly genuine and not the typical tourist rip-off which can be found in numerous places in Kerala

    Unique Quality: Although the sea is nearby, the hotel has sun loungers situated under the shade of palm trees which many of the guests use when not out sightseeing, and where the ever attentive staff ensure you are not without a drink for too long.The Full or Continental Breakfast is included in the price of the room. Some of the best Indian food we experienced in our rail journey from Northern India to the South, is served at dinner time, poolside, at this hotel in an nice intimate candle lit atmosphere. If you contact Mr Santhosh the Asst Manager, you may even get a free pick up from Trivandrum railway station if they are not too busy !

    Directions: approx 12 Km from Trivandrum Railway station or Airport

More about Kadaloram Beach Resort

Kovalam's friendly hotel

by LFTT about Kadaloram beach resort

We stayed in the keralan cottage, it is really nice, loads of beautiful carved wood work, a nice veranda with an over head fan to sit under and watch the comings and goings.
The bathroom is nothing fancy but clean and has everything you need. The wardrobe was small but we travel light so didn't worry us. The bedroom has comfortable beds and had a TV and AC (slightly noisey AC but didn't keep us awake).
The room was clean and the towels changed everyday. The staff at the resort bend over backwards to help you. One of the guys organised a driver to take us on day trips, this was much cheaper than doing it through a tour operator.
Our waiter Joseph was great at breakfast and lunch and for pool side drinks.
There is a decent sized swimming pool, plenty beds and towels and even some hammocks with views...

Swimming on the beaches is not always safe, as the undertow can be very strong, therefore it is essential to follow the warnings of the safety flags. However, days can be spent here just lolling around on the sands or retreating under the awnings of the beach cafes.

Shore Temple

Tourists are drawn to this place by its miles of unspoiled beach and rock-cut art. The sculpture of this place, is particularly interesting, because it shows scenes of day-to- day life, in contrast to the rest of the state of Tamil Nadu, where carvings generally depict gods and goddesses.

Mahabalipuram art is divided into four categories : open air bas reliefs, structured temples, man-made caves and rathas ('chariots' carved from single boulders, to resemble temples or chariots used in temple processions). The famous Arjuna's Penance and the Krishna Mandapa, adorn massive rocks near the centre of the village. The beautiful Shore Temple towers over the waves, behind a protective breakwater.
