Kovalam

The Uday Samudra Leisure Hotel & Spa is a five-star hotel located in the popular resort of Kovalam. The classic almost colonial styled fascia, elegant rooms and the grand sweep of its swimming pool all catch the eye. And the outlooks over the ocean are just as amazing.

Lit up at night the hotel looks 'a million dollars' – the lights reflecting off the surface of the pool. It's a majestic sight and, if you choose, could be your holiday home…

With wonderful views and facilities, the Uday Samudra Leisure Hotel & Spa

The Uday Samudra Leisure Hotel & Spa gives easy access to the many fine beaches at Kovalam – some of the best in Kerala. It's one of the region's vibrant nexus points too – everyone comes to Kovalam, for its shops and restaurants as well as for its beaches a quick rickshaw ride away.

Staying at the Uday Samudra Leisure Hotel & Spa you'll be spoilt for choice. Along the front, there are a host of shops and restaurants, including some excellent fresh fish restaurants. You can quite happily spend a week or more here without feeling the need to venture to Kovalam – everything you need is on hand.

The Uday Samudra Leisure Hotel & Spa itself will be a big part of your holiday experience. The comfortable, air-conditioned rooms offer a view looking out over the pool and gardens which you can enjoy from your private balcony.

Air-conditioned Deluxe Rooms have a balcony with a view of the pool and garden. They are all en-suite and are equipped with satellite TV, phone, mini-bar, safe, hairdryer, FREE Wi-Fi and tea/coffee making facilities. Atrium Rooms and Double Ocean View Rooms are available at a supplement.

Lulled by the waves

Review by Kris V Bengaluru, India

We arrived for the meeting one day earlier than the others. That helped a lot, as we were able to get a sea view room with a balcony overlooking the majestic sea from our first floor room. The room number was 601 and the closest to the sea...

It was peaceful with the reassuring sound of the waves and we chose the sea breeze over the air-conditioned comfort of the room. But be sure that you latch the door as otherwise, some mosquitoes can slip in.

Excellent

UDS, a place that given lot of memories, I was not welcomed in a proper way on my arrival, the front office person gave a key and asked to search for the room, my first impression was not good, I went to the room, and saw the poor maintenance of washroom, I have argued, but after entering into the balcony, i forgot everything on seeing the view, then I started to see the resort in positive way, then I noticed many good things, food was excellent, treatment at restaurant is great, wide variety of foods, then I started my actual stay, and I found it was great as they always wishes at reception, and they made my vehicle to be ready all the time by cooling the vehicle also, they cared us too much, right from the security to the GM, then I felt bad that unnecessarily I argued with them, for a small issue. Apart from that, we have spent our time greatly, and all the staff are good, here I am saying sorry from my bottom of heart for the messing which I done, and thanks to one and all as you ppl treated well after messing too........

Really great experience.

Fabulous stay

Review by AJAYP1384 Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum), India

I truly appreciate the staff behavior at this hotel and i am mesmerised with the ambience uds is having with an access to the beach. Staffs at front office are well trained and well mannered. Especially Mr.Subeesh took good care of us as well as Divya, Kesiya & siyad were very efficient staffs to handle the front office and to settle the shortcoming timely...

Sea view room is a qualitative experience and offer its value.

Worthy of 'Revisits'

Review by Manu_Pasha Bengaluru, India

Little over three weeks of stay in one of the best properties in the Kovalam is definitely worth to write about.

It is a huge property with a private beach, amazing views, good food, multiple pools, gymnasium, playing area and so on.

The best part is definitely the easy access to the private beach which reserve our morning hours and the evening sunset times for them.

Three huge pools are always a big plus,which are well maintained...

The rooms are spacious. The sleep quality is decent. I had issues with the noisy air conditioner and a noisy refrigerator. Which was a little annoying. But, I had my sit out facing the sea. Lot of time was spent sitting and watching the waves.

The room service is good (had few issues once in a while during this long stay). House keeping staff (deserve appreciation) are prompt. The restaurant staff at Grasshopper are amazing too.

Overall experience was very good. Worthy of revisit.

Third rate service & infra

This is not a 5 star property by any stretch of imagination; whether it be for the infra or for service. Rooms have multiple issues which are not sorted out despite repeated requests. Uday Samudra Leisure beach hotel is a leisure hotel for its service staff; not for its guests as the staff does everything at a leisurely pace & without any consideration to guest inconvenience...

UDS apparently stands for Ultimate Definition of Service! The top management has to be delusional to believe that they are providing UDS. The service staff are not polite or courteous (especially the Valet) and when they do what they have to, they do it in a shoddy manner; for example, used water bottles are dumped right by the room entrance. The staff around the hotel have zero sense of a guest's personal space; numerous occasions where the staff simply cuts across the guests path when walking or when guests are at the buffet counter or near the lift. Perhaps this is their attitude for Indian guests; they try doing anything like this with foreign guests they will be smacked for invading a guest's personal space.
