First to mention, kindly do not expect this place to be a commercial hotel. This is an Ashram with travellers stay facility @very decent cost. We have stayed in cottage for 3 days. I would say it's completely different experience all together. Sprawled over 100 acres, Vivekananda kendra is around 1 km from kanyakumari railway station. Full of greeneries, this... More

We stayed at the Vivekananda Kendra for 2 nights. We had book a cottage as we were 5 of us ( 2 families). The cottage was sprawling and very well maintained. AC,hot water, everything was working fine and couldnt ask for anything more. Very peaceful place, near to beach and other city attractions. Kendra has a restaurant within its premises... More

Was skeptical to book the non-A/c rooms as read some bad reviews here. But it didnt turn out to be as bad as i only needed a place sleep over for the night. Our objective was to visit Kanyakumari for a day and all the main tourist spots including sunrise at beach and rock memorial. Sunrise was visible at sunrise... More

A good tribute to the Swami and his pragmatic approach to life. A scenic location to watch the sea waters & Sun on the horizon. The infrastructure is reasonable . The boat ride to/fro , from the mainland was average & could be improved.

It was a very spacious area with all facilities like good canteen with quality food at subsidised rate, wonderful sunrise view point, transport to and fro from Vivekananda Rock. Our Room for 3 persons was very very spacious with separate bed for each at very cheap rate of 900/- with AC. One can have a good walk in the morning... More

This place is amazing. Stayed here for almost two days. The place is very calm and quite with all the modern amenities. You can witness beautiful sunrise and sunset from here. The peacock sanctuary inside the Vivekananda Kendra houses hundreds of beautiful peacocks. The only thing is the atmosphere is hot and humid otherwise the place has everything to offer... More

If you are in Kanyakumari, please dont miss Vivekanand Kendra or Vivekananda Puram. This is not only an excellent place to stay but also has a lot to offer in addition to accomodation. The entire kendra is build on around 100 acres of land and very close to nature. It has so many things to offer that you can easily... More

We traveled in February, so it was quite hot in Kanyakumari. Even otherwise the AC rooms are the best option here. Most other type of rooms offered are not well maintained and not suitable especially for a family. It has an expansive campus to take strolls. You will enjoy staying here better if you have any kind of spiritual objective... More
