Travancore Heritage

India, Indian Subcontinent

Kerala is a land of spectacular scenery – of great rocky cliffs and diving valleys, of lagoons and open seascapes, and, this amazing four star hotel, the Travancore Heritage enjoys one of its finest views.

Occupying a superb ten acre site, filled with lush gardens and shady groves, the Travancore Heritage sits high on a 120ft cliff top, looking down on the beach below. It's an impressive setting – no wonder it was once the site of a Royal Palace. In fact you can still admire some of what's left of the palace in the hotel gardens.

Its impressive location makes Travancore Heritage a truly memorable place to stay:

Travancore Heritage is a spectacular sight. On arrival, you'll be greeted with a complimentary drink and you can take your first opportunity to take in the impressive setting.

Built in two distinct sections; the first features the restaurant and pool area, and the traditionally inspired wooden cottages. Each is wonderfully well-equipped – fully furnished and air conditioned for comfort. Then take the lift down to beach level and you'll find a very different look and feel. Here the ambience is altogether more modern. Fresh, contemporary style is the order of the day. There are some excellent views out to sea, and the houses are all naturally shaded by the many palm trees.

The All-Inclusive package offers a wonderfully varied menu which includes all meals and non-alcoholic beverages at the hotel main restaurant. Guests are also entitled to free use of the internet café, and may even indulge themselves with a complimentary Ayurveda body massage and traditional lunch. Guests all receive a discount of 40% on all other beverages. The hotel also offers two other eateries including a charming beachside restaurant which is certainly worth a visit (not included within the All-Inclusive package).

With a hotel health club and spa, a library and even seasonal entertainment, guests at the Travancore Heritage hotel are given every amenity. It's a privileged position looking out over the Arabian Sea – the sort of view that dreams are made of.

Due to the surrounding area and the number of steps around the hotel, it may not be suitable for those with mobility difficulties.

The Local Area

The Travancore Heritage occupies a 10-acre site on a 120ft high clifftop overlooking the beach and sea below. Once the setting for a royal palace - the ruins are still visible in the grounds - it is in two distinct sections.

The main restaurant and pool area, together with a collection of traditional Kerala wooden cottages, all completely equipped, furnished and air-conditioned for 21st century guests, crown the lush green clifftop.

Below, at beach level, and connected by a lift, is the Beach Grove block of modern rooms, shaded by palm trees and looking out to sea. A beachside restaurant provides for the needs of those on the long sandy beach.

Good resort in an excellent location

Review by SPillai Thiruvananthapuram District, India

This is a spacious property located in Chowara along Kovalam Beachline in Trivandrum. We were on a family 'staycation' for a day and selected a Beach-view room. The rooms are spacious and the location fantastic, providing a clear view of the sea and beach...

The beach is one with public access and the way to it a bit long. The gate to the property closes quite early in the evening and one has to be careful to make it back before 6 pm. The room accessories (like the ac control) and furnishings were a bit old . The staff were very responsive and co-operative. The restaurant is well spread out with good seating and ambience. The buffet food (for breakfast and lunch) was of reasonable variety, taste and quality. But the a-la-carte items that we took for evening dinner, especially the curries were not up to the mark considering the high price. Though the short-comings as mentioned above may be due to the re-opening difficulties after long pandemic induced lock-down, plugging these will make the resort a wonderful and 'worth-the-money' place for a week-end get-away or for a short vacation.
