Day 01 Arrive in Trivandrum by: Flight TBA at: TBA hrs Trivandrum - Kovalam
Arrive this morning at Trivandrum International airport. You will be met by a Hi-Tours representative outside the customs gate and escorted to your hotel - Surya Samudra in Kovalam (approx 45 min).

Undoubtedly one of Kerala’s finest small beach hotels, Surya Samudra Kovalam is situated on a small cliff overlooking an expanse of beach on one side and a small, secluded bay on the other.

Well away from the bustle of Kovalam, guests stay in one of 22 traditional Malayali (Keralam) style cottages which are scattered throughout a palm grove and interconnected by pathways. The cottages have been brilliantly re-constructed by literally transplanting whole homes from across the state. Each has a verandah and spacious open-air bathroom and is predominantly made of wood and furnished with exquisite, hand-picked, traditional furniture and artefacts. An abundance of windows allow the sounds of the sea to beguile you, and the omnipresent sea breeze to waft through.

The unique cliff-side swimming pool and excellent spa will tempt you not to stray from this peaceful haven. The delightful, sea-facing multi cuisine restaurant serves an array of delicious local and global delicacies and an abundance of fresh seafood is served at the seafood grill.

The poolside bar, facing the sprawling Arabian Sea, is the perfect place to sit with a drink and watch the sun going down! Surya Samudra Kovalam is chic, private, and peaceful and virtually on the beach - the perfect private retreat.
