    • 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.

    • Trip to Kovalam

      Hotel at Munnar and thekkady was good. Hotel at kovalam below standard. Houseboat at alleppy was a disaster. We leave house boat, no alternative accommodation provided by travel agent and book hotel at our own cost( Reimbursements must done). One suggestion, Never book houseboat online. Leave it to travelers to book at own after reaching alleppy.for travel agent, Need improvement in tour package planning. Taxi services was good enough. Driver was polite and always on time. overall tour was nice Munnar was the best part of trip.

      Everything was perfect starting from pick up to drop.One small piece of advice please deploy a cab driver who is well conversant in English or Hindi.And also advise him to guide properly regarding which places to visit. Driving towards Kovalam from Munnar.A fantastic drive.

    • Trip to Kovalam

      I used Travel Triangle and a few people reached out to me with different quotation but I went with Travel Unbounded as they were happy to customise according to my needs. But I really need to point out: DRIVER 1. We did not get the car we were promised and the car had a half broken glass. 2. Our drivers kept changing and we were given the wrong details of the person and car. 3. Driver hardly knew any Hindi and nor did he know good which made our trip more than just difficult. 4. Driver stressed us to go places that he thought were worth going too even when they were out of the way. 5. The first driver took parking money from us whereas the second driver never asked for it. So was it on us or no? 6. The driver took us to the beach where we could only spend 20 mins knowing the fact we only had half a day. If we would have known kovalam beach was next to our hotel and we would have loved to have a dip there instead of preferring a boat ride AGAIN. CULTURAL ACTIVITIES 1. We were asked by the driver to see kathakali at twice saying its one of the best. 2. We were repeatedly asked to do safari whereas, we could have considered some other thought over options. 3. The house boat was platinum but smelled of petrol the whole time we were in the room, which even had an AC. Also, we understand Kerala tourism is taken seriously by the state govt but really didn't feel like we had a say in what we wanted to do or how we felt. And It really matters how your driver describes the place and curates the trip for you and your compatibility with him. But overall I really think if we would have had another person with a different attitude, we would have remembered more happy stuff than just this.

      Overall the trip was too good specially our driver Mr. Abhilash. He is too good. Munnar Thekkady hotel was good. Soma Palm shore resort at Kovalam wasn’t upto the mark. We really dint liked their service and there so called private beach which actually isn’t operational and is too risky. Houseboat at Allepey was good, although we encountered an issue in the boat because of which we got a new boat.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.
