The Travancore Hotel, Trivandrum

A seaside resort set amidst landscaped gardens and coconut groves, The Travancore Heritage is located at Chowara, south of Kovalam, near Trivandrum. The resort is built on a cliff overlooking the Arabian Sea with a wide expanse of silvery white sands in front.

Developed as a heritage property, The Travancore brings to life the traditional Nalukettus or the typical wooden houses with tiled roofs. Each house has a central courtyard around which are the four wings of the house. There is a lot of fresh air and sunlight in the houses. These houses which comprise The Travancore were built over the past century in different parts of the erstwhile kingdom of Travancore and transported piece by piece to the present site. It is astonishing to see the fine woodcarvings on the rafters and gables.

The accommodation at the Travancore Heritage comprises two pool mansion suites -- ideal for honeymooners -- with private pools, an air-conditioned spacious bed room, a drawing room and a verandah complete with period furniture. The resort also has elegant air-conditioned rooms in heritage villas. In addition, the Travancore has a modern wing of beach villas facing the sea. These villas are 120 ft. up a cliff and there are elevators for going up or coming down. The accommodation at the Travancore has modern amenities like large toilets, cold/hot water showers, satellite TV, telephone with direct dialing, mini bar and coffee maker.

The Travancore specializes in Ayurveda and Ayurvedic treatment, well known as the Keraleeya Panchakarma. The resort has its own garden of rare medicinal herbs used for the therapeutic packages such as rejuvenation therapy, beauty care and even an Ayurvedic menu to suit tastes and digestion. The hotel has an open air multi-cuisine restaurant, specializing in seafood, overlooking the pool. There is also an 'ocean grill' beach side restaurant.

Since the Travancore is on the sea beach, the hotel provides facilities for beach activity, amidst the coconut palms like beach volleyball, nature walks boat cruises along the backwaters and sight-seeing trips of the Padmanabhapuram Palace, Kanya Kumari, the Srichitra Art Gallery and the Napier Museum. The hotel, in keeping with its history, organizes Mohiniyattam and Kathakali dance performances as well as classical music concerts in the evenings.
