The SpaceGuest Rooms in Hotel Sea Breeze are set on three floors. Each en-suite room is fitted with a ceiling fan. Rooms sleep two in singe beds or can be arranged as a double bed if preferred. The calendar here records vacancies for only ROOM 201. Some other rooms are also listed on this website. All rooms are similar to this listing except Room 101 (The Chalet) which is slightly separate to the rest of the hotel and has its own private sit-out and entrance. Hotel Sea Breeze is in the popular beach resort of Kovalam. This region of Kerala is very like Goa and has been growing in size and popularity since the flower power days of the 1960s. Kovalam is located in the district of Thiruvananthapuram – yes quite a mouthful! Even the locals generally call it Trivandrum. The Airport is in Trivandrum and so is the main Railway Station. Lighthouse Beach is a short walk from Hotel Sea Breeze – 2 or 3 minutes. TELLING IT LIKE IT IS ... Kovalam was initially a fishing village with beautiful beaches lined with coconut trees. Now, you could be forgiven for thinking you had landed in Benidorm. High rise accommodation has sprouted up everywhere as landowners try to attract the tourists. Some of these structures are illegal construction so the powers that be could, in theory, have them removed. However, India thrives on bribery and Kovalam is no exception. While bribes are paid, illegal buildings will stand. The likeness to Benidorm ends with the high rise buildings as a quick scout around the area will confirm. The Indian people are not good at maintenance. ‘Build it and leave it’, seems to be the motto. This is partly due to the caste system which still pervades. There is an attitude of ‘its not my job’ – especially when it comes to cleaning toilets. They have yet to get a grip on that one! It is also partly due to the monsoon season which has to be experienced to appreciate how difficult it is to keep a respectable veneer on the buildings. It always surprises me how children wearing bright clean crisp school uniforms pop out from such dingy buildings on their way to equally dingy schools. At the end of the day, still without a messy blob on them, the kids return home. India might have a space programme but it is backward in coming forward when it comes to creating and maintaining an infrastructure. Consequently, if you step off the mock Victorian promenade of Lighthouse Beach, you will quickly discover where the rubbish goes! Bottles are heaped up behind walls awaiting the bottle collector. This is a bi-product of tourism. Plastics and other ‘throw aways’ magically disappear in developed countries while India must burn or bury rubbish – or find another use for it. Generally nothing is wasted in India, hence the bottle collector. So do please try to leave as little rubbish as possible. Electricity supply all over India is somewhat erratic. They even have set times when the current will go off. This can be fun but not if you are in the shower and wondering where the towel might be! There are some very good solar power and wind up torches available now. Suggest you take one with you. Most of the water in Kovalam comes from wells. It is generally safe. These guys have been digging wells for hundreds of years. (The well digging caste of course!) They know what they are doing. However, taking care of tummies is always a good idea, otherwise the holiday could be spent on the toilet – or hovering over one if you dare to use the Indian version. Acidophilus tablets help keep the digestion in order. A bit like eating yogurt, acidophilus boosts the good bacteria which helps prevent ‘Delhi Belly’. Purchase acidophilus in health stores in country of origin. Lighthouse Beach is lined with small restaurants and gifts shops. The restaurants serve a wide variety of meals and snacks – Indian, Continental and Chinese. Also there are tailors who will stitch you an outfit to order. It is common practice to wander up and down the sea front promenade in the evenings. Strangely enough (and I still don’t know how the locals do this), they soon know who you are and where you are staying! Some restaurants have extraordinary long menus. They can be fun to read with such offers as ‘scream bled eggs’ and ‘shew heded roundels lossed in soya’! The first is no doubt scrambled eggs. The latter? Your guess is as good as mine! The days fishing catch (and sometimes yesterdays) is often displayed outside the restaurants to lure in customers. BEER – Most of us enjoy a beer on a hot summers day. In Kovalam beer is available but it could arrive at your table in a tea pot – or the bottle might be wrapped in newspaper and placed under the table. Alcohol licences are very expensive in Kerala, no doubt controlled by gangsters and police. The restaurant owners resort to the good old bribe system and we must be thankful for that! NOTE: Latest news is that the Kerala Government are trying to make an alcohol free state. If this happens, tourism in Kerala will decline. Please make your feelings about this known on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) etc. The proposal is to turn Kerala into an Alcohol-free state within 10 years’ time. Over 400 bars in the state have already closed. The Kerala authorities want to issue alcohol licenses only to five star hotels in the state. Big mistake! The sand on the South Kerala beaches is black in parts – rather like the volcanic beaches of Lanzarote. The beaches are well used. Some people are adventurous enough to try body surfing on the waves. However, please be aware that there are very strong currents in the Kovalam sea which have resulted in a number of deaths. Unlike the rest of Kerala it is quite normal to sunbathe and swim wearing skimpy cossies. There was a time when Kerala men would bus in to see the half naked foreigners and their strange activities. Now they are used to such sights and will probably just try to sell you something. The popularity of Kovalam has partly grown around the availability of the ancient healing practice of Ayurveda and traditional medicines. There are many Ayurvedic practices within the resort. Certain standards have recently been stipulated for the running of such an establishment – but there are always those bribes – so do make sure you are not being massaged with old cooking oil. Yoga is also very popular and many studios can be found in and around Kovalam. Tuition in Kalaripayattu (Kerala Martial Arts) can also be found, though only a basic grounding can be expected during a short holiday. It takes years of dedication to become expert. Hotel Sea Breeze can arrange Ayurveda, Yoga and Kalaripayattu. Guru Suresh is an expert in Kalaripayattu and Ayurveda. If you tire of the beach, Trivandrum is a good place for a day out. Thirteen kilometres from Kovalam - buses, taxis, auto-rickshaws will get you there. Shopping is good and lots to see and do. Ten kilometres from Kovalam is the Valiyathura Pier. Here the fishermen cast their boats into the water and then dive in after them. The 214 metre long pier offers magnificent views of the coast. Visitors to South Kerala must try to see Kanyakumari (Cape Comorin). This is the southern-most tip of mainland India. It is suggested that there once existed a continent called Kumari Kandam to the south of Kanyakumari, often compared with Lemuria. This journey can include a visit to the Padmanabhapuram Palace. The palace was constructed around 1601. It is one of the best examples of traditional Kerala architecture. Very nice – recommend it. A stay at Sea Breeze gives you a comfortable bed in a convenient location - budget style. You will hear the jungle noises from nearby trees - unforgettable sounds of India. Guest AccessGuests staying at Hotel Sea Breeze have access to common patio areas and the garden. Guests can also relax on the roof space with a cup of chai. Interaction with GuestsGuests can ask Lynne Haywood (in UK) questions about Kerala, India, Flights etc. I shall try to answer. It is unlikely that I shall be in Kovalam taking up a room in this busy hotel! Co-Owner Mr Suresh Nair will probably be there. Guru Suresh is available on site to assist guests. The NeighborhoodKovalam is a popular resort bustling with tourists from all over the world. The beaches are full of interesting people enjoying the Kerala sun and gossiping in restaurants on the promenade. That's the way it is during the tourist season October to April. In monsoon, the sea rages, most tourists disappear and it is difficult to even see a glimpse of the beach. For those who choose to stay, Kovalam in monsoon is an ideal location to get away from it all, watch and listen to the rain, enjoy the odd sunny days and catch up with thoughts. It is also the best time to take Ayurveda. There are many gift shops and beach restaurants. Getting AroundAuto-rickshaws are readily available from Lighthouse Road. Hire a local car with driver. Buses are quite dangerous, racing other buses to collect queues of passengers. Other Things to NoteTariff is for the room not per person. DISCOUNTS FOR LONG TERM STAY Wi-Fi available

Also there are tailors who will stitch you an outfit to order - within hours. It is common practice to wander up and down the sea front promenade in the evenings. Strangely enough (and I still don’t know how the locals do this), they soon know who you are and where you are staying! Some restaurants have extraordinary long menus. They can be fun to read with such offers as ‘scream bled eggs’ and ‘shew heded roundels lossed in soya’! The first is no doubt scrambled eggs but the latter? Your guess is as good as mine! The days fishing catch (and sometimes yesterdays) is often displayed outside the restaurants to lure in customers. BEER – Most of us enjoy a beer on a hot summers day. In Kovalam, beer is available but it could arrive at your table in a tea pot – or the bottle might be wrapped in newspaper and placed under the table. Alcohol licences are very expensive in Kerala, no doubt controlled by gangsters and police. The restaurant owners resort to the good old bribe system and we must be thankful for that! The sand on the South Kerala beaches is black in parts – rather like the volcanic beaches of Lanzarote. The beaches are well used. Some people are adventurous enough to try body surfing on the waves. Beware of strong currents in the waters off Lighthouse Beach. Unlike the rest of Kerala it is quite normal to sunbathe and swim wearing skimpy cossies. There was a time when Kerala men would bus in to see the half naked foreigners and their strange activities. Now they are used to such sights and will probably just try to sell you something. The popularity of Kovalam has partly grown around the availability of the ancient healing practice of Ayurveda and traditional medicines. There are many Ayurvedic practices within the resort. Certain standards have recently been stipulated for the running of such an establishment – but there are always those bribes – so do make sure you are not being massaged with old cooking oil. Yoga is also very popular and many studios can be found in and around Kovalam. Tuition in Kalaripayattu (Kerala martial arts) can also be found, though only a basic grounding can be expected during a short holiday. It takes years of dedication to become expert. Details on You Tube can be found at Kalari at Hotel Sea Breeze - Kovalam - Kerala - India Hotel Sea Breeze can arrange Ayurveda, Yoga and Kalaripayattu. Talk to Guru Suresh - Kalari Instructor. He is an expert in Ayurveda and Kalaripayattu. Yoga will be available daily from January 2017 - with English Yoga Instructor Jon. As a course: 4x two hour lessons + an additional teaching summarising the history and philosophy of yoga plus a personal practice plan to take away: Rs2000 per person. If you tire of the beach, Trivandrum is a good place for a day out. Thirteen kilometres from Kovalam, - buses, taxis, auto-rickshaws will get you there. Shopping is good and lots to see and do. Ten kilometres from Kovalam is the Valiyathura Pier. Here the fishermen cast their boats into the water and then dive in after them. The 214m long pier offers magnificent views of the coast. Visitors to South Kerala must try to see Kanyakumari (Cape Comorin). This is the southern-most tip of mainland India. It is suggested that there once existed a continent called Kumari Kandam to the south of Kanyakumari, often compared with Lemuria. This journey can include a visit to the Padmanabhapuram Palace. The palace was constructed around 1601. It is one of the best examples of traditional Kerala architecture. Very nice – recommend it. A stay at Sea Breeze Chalet gives you a comfortable bed in a convenient location - budget style. You will hear jungle noises from wild life in the nearby trees which can give a wonderful feeling of relaxation - the unforgettable sounds of India. Guest AccessGuests staying at Hotel Sea Breeze have access to common patio areas and the garden. Guests can also relax on the roof space with a cup of chai. Interaction with GuestsGuests can ask me (Lynne Haywood - in UK) questions about Kerala, India, Flights etc. I shall try to answer.

The NeighborhoodKovalam is a popular resort bustling with tourists from all over the world. The beaches are full of interesting people enjoying the Kerala sun and gossiping in restaurants on the promenade. That's the way it is during the tourist season October to April. In monsoon, the sea rages, most tourists disappear and it is hard to even see a glimpse of the beach. For those who choose to stay, Kovalam in monsoon is an ideal location to get away from it all, watch and listen to the rain, enjoy the odd sunny days and catch up with thoughts. It is also the best time to take Ayurveda. There are many gift shops and beach restaurants. Getting AroundAuto-rickshaws are readily available from Lighthouse Road. Hire a local car with driver.

The SpaceGuest Rooms in Hotel Sea Breeze are set on three floors. Each en-suite room is fitted with a ceiling fan. Rooms sleep two in singe beds or can be arranged as a double bed if preferred. The calendar here records vacancies for only ROOM 204. Some other rooms are also listed on this website. All rooms are similar to this listing except Room 101 (The Chalet) which is slightly separate to the rest of the hotel and has its own private sit-out and entrance. Hotel Sea Breeze is in the popular beach resort of Kovalam. This region of Kerala is very like Goa and has been growing in size and popularity since the flower power days of the 1960s. Kovalam is located in the district of Thiruvananthapuram – yes quite a mouthful! Even the locals generally call it Trivandrum. The Airport is in Trivandrum and so is the main Railway Station. Lighthouse Beach is a short walk from Hotel Sea Breeze – 2 or 3 minutes. TELLING IT LIKE IT IS ... Kovalam was initially a fishing village with beautiful beaches lined with coconut trees. Now, you could be forgiven for thinking you had landed in Benidorm. High rise accommodation has sprouted up everywhere as landowners try to attract the tourists. Some of these structures are illegal construction so the powers that be could, in theory, have them removed. However, India thrives on bribery from a few rupees to crores of rupees and Kovalam is no exception. While bribes continue to be paid, illegal buildings will stand. The likeness to Benidorm ends with the new high rise buildings as a quick scout around the area will confirm. The Indian people are not good at maintenance. ‘Build it and leave it’, seems to be the motto. This is partly due to the caste system which still pervades. There is an attitude of ‘its not my job’ – especially when it comes to cleaning toilets. They have yet to get a grip on that one! It is also partly due to the monsoon season which has to be experienced to appreciate how difficult it is to keep a respectable veneer on the buildings. The monsoon weather is relentless in its destructive powers - but fascinating to watch. It always surprises me how children wearing bright clean crisp school uniforms pop out from dingy buildings on their way to equally dingy schools. At the end of the day, still without a messy blob on them, the kids return home with happy smiling faces. India might have a space programme but it is backward in coming forward when it comes to creating and maintaining an infrastructure. Consequently, if you step off the mock Victorian promenade of Lighthouse Beach, you will quickly discover where the rubbish goes! Bottles are heaped up behind walls awaiting the Bottle Collector. This is a bi-product of tourism. Plastics and other ‘throw aways’ magically disappear in developed countries while India must burn or bury rubbish – or find another use for it. Generally nothing is wasted in India, hence the Bottle Collector will remove them - eventually. While on holiday in Goa, I tried to help by picking up the street rubbish around my accommodation and putting it in my room bin. It took a few days for me to realise, my host threw it back into the street each day! This will also be true of Kovalam, so do try to create as little waste as possible. Electricity supply all over India is somewhat erratic. They even have set times when the current will go off. This can be fun but not if you are in the shower in the dark and wondering where the towel might be! There are some very good solar power and wind up torches available now. Suggest you take one with you. Most of the water in Kovalam comes from wells. It is generally safe. These guys have been digging wells for hundreds of years. (The well digging caste of course!) They know what they are doing. However, taking care of tummies is always a good idea, otherwise the holiday could be spent on the toilet – or hovering over one if you dare to use the Indian squat version.
