Kovalam HotelsSearch Hotel By Name:
Though the word Kovalam means a “grove of coconut trees”, Kerela, God’s own country, that houses this beautiful beach resort, has a number of other things to offer. Located at a distance of 16Kms from Trivandrum, the beach of Kovalam is a treat for the naturalists and environmentalists. The shimmering beach laced with lush green coconut palms, the eternal dancing of the waves, the azure blue sky watching with a hermit like serenity, the medley of red, orange, yellow and saffron adorning the sky each day during sunset and the shrieks of sheer bliss and mirth heard from the bonfires booming in the beach after the sun has lowered from the horizon are only some of the marvels of nature that Kovalam is adorned with. Often referred to as the “Paradise of South India”, Kovalam is the most visited beach resort of India, heavily frequented by tourists from abroad, particularly countries of Israel and those in the continent of Europe.
A fishing hamlet erstwhile, the hidden potentials of Kovalam as a kingdom was first brought into the limelight by the European guests of the royalties of Travancore in 1930s. Characterized with four crescent shaped beaches segregated by rocky outcroppings, the Kovalam beach now has something for everyone- whether it is a romantic walk by the seaside on a moonlit night for a couple in their honeymoon, a chance to snorkel the latent world under the sea for an adventure enthusiast, or an elderly couple looking forward to de-stress themselves from their busy urban lives by an ayurvdic message, Kovalam has the answer to every problem in her kitty.
