Generally, Kovalam including the beaches is commercial but this is located around 3km away in a quaint little corner. I guess that's what makes it so special. It is definitely one of the best places to stay and experience coastal India with its food, climate and with a pleasant dose of culture. The rooms, the wonderful view and the beautiful...

I have been a regular visitor to Thapovan over the years. It is definitely one of the best places to stay and experience coastal India with its food, climate and with a pleasant dose of culture. The meticulousness with which the rooms have been planned, the wonderful view and the beautiful gardens with indigenous trees and shrubs makes Thapovan one...

Memories of Thapovan are something we run to, even today one year later, when we want to visualise a place of peace and calm. We discovered this gem through a friend who is a travel agent. Truly an unpublicised wonder. Our honeymoon here was only 2 days long but really really worth it. We stayed at the sea-front property. The...

It is a ayurvedic resort.... So you will not get luxury rooms here. But look and feel of rooms is heritage, which is good. Best thing about this place is its awesome food and wonderful location with a private clean beach with blue-green colored sea, which looks beautiful.... Beach is just awesome. There are 2 properties, Hill side and sea...

I recently concluded my trip to Kovalam in October 2014 and had a booking in the Thapovan Heritage Home. The room we had booked called Eagle's Nest was at a stone's throw from the sea beach. The room is in a wonderful picturesque surrounding nice room though non-ac but there is absolutely no need of an ac environment here. Their...

Delightful rooms, big and spacious with good bathroom. We had a 'cottage' overlooking the sea and gardens, which was wonderful. Lovely big verandah to sit out on. Aircon not needed as cool breeze through the windows and great fan. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Great welcome, great food, Ayurveda treatment was wonderful experience. Only downside were the beach traders but...
