    • Trip to Kerala

      We just moved to India and were planning our first trip. Our travel agent gave us a 3 star accommodation as a four star. The place was shabby and not even worth 3 star. That was a major turn off. The travel agent also booked us at two nights in diff places apart by 250 kms. Luckily we caught that last minute and forced them to change it. Costed us a ton of extra money. Aans Travel partner was a wrong choice. Being a platform travel triangle should ensure such things. They can improve on their customer connect and platform quality

      Not up-to our expectations like the welcoming at airport , candle light dinner, house boat. Rest of the things were good. Whispering meadows @ munnar with the mountain view and fog around was awesome.

      It was a wonderful trip to Kerala, well organised by Arha Holidays. Vouchers and cab details were provided in advance. We are totally satisfied with the accommodation and cab service. Seven Springs Plantation Resort at Munnar is an excellent place amid nature, we enjoyed our stay over there. The cab driver guided us to the best restaurants, food was very good. Totally it was a beautiful and memorable trip. Thank you Travel Triangle for making our trip plan easy and comfortable.

    • Trip to Kerala

      I went to Kerala trip ( 5 days and 4 nights) 18-May-2019 to 22-May-2019 using travel triangle. Sharing travels is the agent who planned my trip. Namith is the Point of contact for me from sharing travels. The best thing I felt from Namith is response from his side is very quick. when ever I am in confusion or having any difficulties in trip (checkin to hotels) Namith responded very quickly and resolved the issues. My experience was good. Pros: a) Driver along with car will be there along with you through out the trip. If you are a single driver or going along with family then this will be usefull. b) Budget is reasonably good. c) Hotel bookings and travel places will be designed by the travel agents which will help you in having smooth experience. Overall experience was good. Cons: a) I felt driver should have taken to more places and most of the time he offs AC.I don't want to have any argument hence I kept quite even though I felt sad. b) Most of the places I spent my money again to see the places(Spice gardens and flower parks wonder Vally). I felt at least some things should be taken care by agent. (At the end I felt agent did hotel booking and car along with driver) c) When we are at alleppey house boat the driver went to some other place again we need to pay extra money to auto person to reach to beach. Conclusion: Next trip onwards Could you please make sure even though you take more money also not a problem but I felt end to end trip should be taken care by agent. Driver should be more available and we should not dependent on third party vendor for travel in side trip (if its mandatory then its fine). itinerary should have been better..most of the good time in day is wasted in travelling between cities (Munnar - thekkady- Alleppey ). I am getting tired when I reach that destination (around 12 PM to 1 Pm you will reach every day) by 6 pm driver will take you to hotel..Its my sincere suggestion that if you can correct this things you can provide really good experience to travellers like me.. I am happy about your service..but I felt above things should be taken care as I felt very sad in the trip. Hotels should be good and mostly try to provide good resorts (when we are travelling with family it is really important)..you can charge more , its still fine.

    FAQ's of Kovalam

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

     

    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.
