I stayed at the Aparna for 2 weeks in March. My room was spacious, light and had private balcony looking to sea. Charles and the staff were very welcoming. Would definitely book again. I could lay in bed and watch the birds in the palm trees abd the sea crashing onto the rocks below.

Bathroom was large and spotlessly clean with plenty of hot water, shower and Western lavatory. We would have preferred an air conditioned room...

This was my favourite hotel out of the several I stayed at in India, and I had the best sleep here. It had great views and was located in a quiet area away from the nearby main strip. We also had a tasty English breakfast at the restaurant in the Rockholm Hotel that was right below the Aparna. I found...

Our room was on the first floor and we had wonderful views across to the sea over-looking palm trees. Charles was very kind and hospitable and the room was spacious and comfortable. The bathroom too was spotless and the balcony was the perfect place to sit and admire birds and fishing boats or just chill out and read a book....

Good wardrobe space with loads of hangers. Lights over bed for reading. Washing line provided on balcony with pegs. Fridge in room. Helpful, friendly staff....

Booked the Aparna close to a year a go thanks to that wonderful man Saj (@Sajhome Cochi) and so pleased we did. Direct email with Charles who always responded promptly. I'd requested a high room and Charles came up trumps. Room 8 near the top has dual aspect, superb rooms and a lovely balcony - check my shot of the...

Aparna Guest House at Kovalam is a nice property. It is near to sea beach and the access is easy. The rate for upper floors is a little bit high than that of the ground floor. Any one may contact to this Guest house -- aparnaseaside@yahoo.co.in Phone Nos. +91 0471 2480950 & +91 0471 2480951
