5/5 Excellent

Awesome hotel. Relaxing and fun.

My family really enjoyed our 12 hour stay at the hotel. The beach was awesome, maybe next we should come during the calm season of the sea. The sea was rough, but the hotel staff was there at the beach protecting us and guiding us from danger. The food in the restaurant was great. the hotel rooms were comfortable and the services were great. People were available at your need. The hammock was great and so was the pool. Our family really relaxed at this place. We also got an amazing massage at a reasonable price.

Pros: Location. Staff, Food and amenities (very clean and good pool)

Cons: This hotel seems to be more oriented towards people with physical issues and problems, rather than people like me who come for fun.

Location: There was nothing. Travel was possible, but we relaxed here itself

Rare and unique

When we first arrived in Kovallam, my friends and I were looking for the perfect location for our one week stay. We then decided to visit a set of hotels and resorts before picking up the right place. Bethsaida did meet our highest expectations. The location is just great, it is located in one of the most charming and lovely place along the ocean with a direct access to the beach. The staff is dedicated to the guests without excess and always shows warmth and attention. The therapists exceed in professionalism, this is no doubt one of the best team we have ever met. The rooms are fine, although the furniture makes them a little bit dark in the inside, it would probably need to be refreshed to meet the competition, however that had no importance with regards to the overall quality. Definitely a unique place to enjoy.

Prefect Relaxation...!!!!!!!!!!!

Resort was located in splendid location. Room had great view of Sea and lush green garden on either side. Well maintained room and staff were very helpful to ensure customer satisfaction.

3/5

Does not match expectations!

First of all, the hotel is not at Kovalam as claimed. It is about 15 km away which takes over 30 min drive in Kerala. It does not look like a professionally run place - it is more like a 'missionary' set up where most guests and the staff seem to be connected to some christian group. The good thing is some of the revenues from the hotel is used to support an orphanage and other social support activities, but I guess most travelers coming for a vacation are not in that mind set. There is no bar or room service. Connectivity is very poor - both phone and internet. They have a wifi but very weak coverage. The rooms are very bare and some do not have air conditioning - I got a shock when they claimed on check in that I had not 'specifically booked' an A/C room. Had to argue a lot to get one. Rooms have no safes and if you need one you have to use the ones at the reception. Further there i was no coffee brewing facility in my room and with no room service, it was a long trek to get a morning coffee!

Pros: Good views, nice secluded beach

Cons: Lot of things - see my earlier section

Great sea facing location, pretty property

The property was very pretty, with helpful staff. Its on the beach with breath-taking views from dawn to dusk. Also quite private, and occupancy is largely European nationals, so you feel comfortable (not judged) in a bikini, for instance. Some things that could help Bethsaida be much better are: (a) Variety of food- the buffet food is largely south-Indian-vegetarian, good for a day or two, but there is not enough variety of cuisines on offer. If you do order à la carte, it takes forever. (b) Luxury quotient could go up dramatically if bathrooms had better fittings/ bathtubs/ premium toiletry with hotel branding etc. (b) Professional hotel management: While very friendly and helpful, most of the staff including front office and restaurant managers are simple locals without spit-and-polish. Staff needed to be reminded for simple things like a TV in the room or fresh tea bags.
