    • Trip to Kovalam

      The trip was well planned. The only issue was the cab came pretty late to the airport for arrival and its understandable as it was Onam week. Apart from that, I had no issues at all. Best memories of my trip was at Munnar and Kovalam. The resorts were exquisite and the views serene.

      Munnar hotel facilities were very good, Kovalam hotel facilities were good but the last one Mare Blu Cherai was worst as I informed earlier also, first time I saw wash basin alongside bed, dirty towels & linen. Munnar site seeing places were great & House boat experience was also very good.

    • Trip to Kovalam

      All trip was going fine until we reach Kovalam where the resort [although it was not ] was totally disappointing as the pathway to reach it was very dangerous. There was just 1 foot road for around 500m to travel where there was one big drain on right side. I wont recommend u to book that hotel in future for the trips having kids and elder people. Next when we reach Rameshwaram there was issue with booking dates, they had booking for next day for us which was not correct and we have to adjust in 2 rooms for the time being. Best memories we created in Kerala, nice weather, beautiful locations, lots of spices shopping and yes very cooperative driver bhaiya sumesh

    • Trip to Kovalam

      Out of 3 hotels 2 are very good and hygienic but the hotel provided for kovalam is not good.we didn't expect such type of hotel that is very disappointing. Allepey house boat is also very disappointing.Food provided in boat is awesome but maintenance is very bad too many cockroaches in rooms didn't expect this type of houseboat. And driver(Jaison) and cab are very good.He is very cooperative and understanding. Guidence given by him is very good and very good driving. We didn't miss any place because of him. He guided us in every thing food,places etc. Special thanks to him. Totally it is very good experience.seeing new places and cultures. Thank you for supporting.

    • Trip to Kovalam

      Kerala trip was OK but not the best one as i experienced with the travel Mania team and with the cab driver as well . The trip was not that much expected due to Heavy rains in August first 10 days....the very 1st day wasted totally by spending in cab due to flood type of conditions that too we are in middle of Munnar, due to that entire trip was changed all of a sudden, ghat section roads are covered with landslides and tree slides. finally we cancelled the Munnar trip and went to Alleppey by eod. But travel guys didnt give proper info regarding to the hotels as the plan changed, and they are asking extra charges around 3.5 K due to plan changes and cancellations of the munnar hotel...due to the change happened in itenary. the 2nd day was House boat, that god here also bit rainy but safe.....boat was not that much expected ...its like very old but cook (as we are purely vegetarian) and boat driver was good . and the very 3rd day reached trivendram around 3pm, we saw padmanabha swamy temple and museums...night staying at kovalam . the next day(4th day) it was totally wasted as we have plenty of time to go for side seeing in Trivendram (as we have a 1 year old baby) there is some thing called Magic planet its just 28 KM from trivendram. here driver was not at all OK as he is saying it was not in the itanary. he is arguing with us like u can call to ur travel guys as its not in itanary.....so i called to travel guys and they are charging 1K extra amount for the site seeing. ( last time we went to BALI( indonesia) driver showed so many places without hesitating any thing that too not in Itanary as well) . am not understanding how lazy people are there in our society to show the side seeings ....driver is not at all helpful here . . we have flight at 9:30 PM, so we have lot of time from morning 11AM to evening 7 PM. Finally we are asking to driver atleast go to Padmanabha swamy temple one more time. for this also he is not OK and saying that as per the itanary we have to show the surroundings only once not twice in same area and location.

    • Trip to Kovalam

      Hi, I have travelled with my husband n baby (2.5yo) in the month of july to kerala. We have tried travel triangle for the first time for our vacation planning, earlier i was scared and little bit worried to book from this site but when i had conversation with “sethi travels” (one of the agent from travel triangle), he convinced me through his communication n commitment. He was in touch with us throughout our vacation. He booked all the hotels n resort of our choices. We had an amazing stay in every hotel or resort. Even our taxi driver was so supportive, he cooperated very well throughout our journey. Thank you so much “Sethi travels” and nitin for making this trip very beautiful. We stayed in “niraamya retreats surta samudra,kovalam” for 2 days. On the very first day when we entered the room we were surprised to see a little plate decorated with cookies n name of my child written on it. After this sweet gesture, we received another little surprise on our check out day when whole team of this resort came to meet us with cake for our belated anniversary n my husband’s birthday. These small gestures by resort made us very delighted by their hospitality.

    • Trip to Kovalam

      We really had great time at trip. We had to change our hotel at kovalam as the service was not good. The agent didn't confirm hotels before our arrival. The driver was not communicated the itinerary. 90% we had to manage everyday hotels n itinerary. We also included kanyakumari in our trip, but later agent asked for additional cost. Plus more pathetic was travel triangle's agent. Not supportive at all.

    There are many restaurants along the beachfront at Lighthouse Beach. The days catch is usually laid in front of them in the evening for those who like fish. The specialty of the area is Chicken Fry. Fried chicken in a red masala paste with freshly cut chillis. Vegetable sambal, paratha (a richer version of roti), beef fry and fish fry are commonly available.
