    Biswaaa

    Bhubaneswar

    Biswaaa's 8 days trip to Kovalam

    It was a nice experience travelling with Travel triangle and Sai Arha Holidays. Rupali ji guided throughout the trip regarding payment and bookings etc . Similarly Mr. Sunil and Disha ji guided well and planned a beautiful experience. All the hotels were nice and above my expectations except the Houseboat which was dirty and poorly maintained. I have informed this at that moment to Sai Arha holidays and Sunil ji they tried their best but atlast only regretted and we acquired 1 bad memory regarding houseboat experience. Leaving that i would also thank Sunil ji for planning the trip so nicely. The cab driver Mr. M. Sebil was an excellent man guided us very nicely. 5 star for him . 5 star to Sunil ji for trying to arrange everything. But 4 stars to Sai Arha holidays for that 1 bad experience in Allepy houseboat. Best memory was the stay in Dew Drops resort . Excellent view in the lap of nature with excellent staffs and service . A must stay for all. And not to forget the Kovalam beaches...

    FAQ's of Kovalam

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    Beaches being the major tourist attractions, Kovalam offers a number of beachside budget resorts which are preferred by tourists from all over the world. Moreover, the city does have plenty of hotels and guest houses as well.

    Kovalam is about 16 km (20 minutes in a taxi) from Trivandrum which is the nearest railway station and airport to Kovalam. Both taxis and buses are available from there.

    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.

    Surfing, wooden boat rides and motorboat rides are some of the activities that can be done in Kovalam. Sunbathing, swimming, herbal body toning massages, special cultural programmes and catamaran cruising are also some of the activities people go for on the pristine beaches of Kovalam.

     

    Ayurveda and Yoga should probably be available at your place of stay itself. If not, there are a number of Ayurvedic and Yogic centres on and off the beach. Only go for centres recognised by the Department of Tourism.

    The Kovalam Beach is famous for pristine surroundings consisting of soft sand, clear waters, and fringed palms. The beach is also known to have low tidal waves which makes it perfect for swimming. The beach is also known for spellbinding sunsets.
