We're arriving in Trivandrum (from UK) on 20th November and may stay in Kovalam for up to 7 days before heading to the backwaters.

Do we need to book a Kovalam hotel in advance?

We're not sure booking ahead is our best option as we may move from Kovalam before the 7 days ends, but we're worried we wont find a good place if we turn up at Kovalam without a booking.

Our budget would be in the region of Rs2000-Rs3500 per night and we'd like a nice place close to the beach, maybe with a balcony.

Thanks

Come on indiamikers, my partner thinks that indiamike is the best website in the world and i want to believe him.

He's a 'know-it-all' (a pain in the ***) when it comes to India, and I just want to prove him wrong, so come on, help me out here folks.

sujith, thanks for the reply.

Hi Gillian,

first of all, welcome to the site.

I would not advice you to book ahead, at least not for the whole seven days. I prefer to have a look at a place for myself before I decide to take it or not and always found a place to stay this way. It makes it also possible to bargain a little and get a better price most of the time, though not guaranteed.
