Surya Samudra Beach Resort, Kovalam - "Situated on a rocky promontory between two deserted beaches, Surya Samudra is the kind of place you could easily imagine Hemingway or Somerset Maugham retreating to for weeks at a time to bash away at a typewriter in splendid isolation. It's that kind of place."
'"This place, Surya Samudra is like a setting in a James Bond film," said a friend. Quite so: exotic wooden cottages, coconut trees, a fine beach…This is a place for dreaming, in the silence and the sun and the roar of the waves… Kerala has no beach resort like it.' INSIDE OUTSIDE, August 1993.
The resort complex falls under Trivandrum district and is 18 kilometers away from it, 22 kilometers from the airport. It is 20 kilometers away from the historic Vizhinjam (pronounced as Virinyam) Harbour and 6 kilometers from Vizhinjam town.

When the sun goes down, the coals begin to glow at Kanal, our grill, perched on a bluff promontory that springs out from the Cliffside. As the fishing boats begin twinkling in the distance, and the ocean breeze gets cooler, the coal starts crackling to serve up a succulent selection of barbecued and grilled seafood, meat and vegetables. The catch of the day, fresh from the sea, is specially recommended and you can have it marinated in your choice of spices too.
Our sea facing bar is a magnificent place to lean back and breathe in the cool ocean scented air.
