am nächsten morgen hieß es früh aufstehen, denn wir wollten den sonnenauf-und monduntergang auf keinen fall versäumen. es hat sich auch gelohnt, denn die sonne stieg (zwar etwas verspätet) blutrot aus einer dunstschicht auf, während sich der silberweiße mond auf er anderen seite sich langsam dem meer zuneigte. eine zeitlang standen sich die beiden …
Kovalam is a beautiful coastal resort and our hotel balcony looks out across the beach and towards the lighthouse. We arrived very early on our first day so a week of lazing by the pool and paddling in the sea was very welcome!
We also decided it would probably be a good idea to get our clothes washed and found a launderette who would do …

Next door is the Maliga Palace museum which is the 200 year old palace of the maharajas and inside has carved wooden ceilings, marble beams and imported Venetian glass mirrors and Belgian chandeliers. We were hoping to see a rather ornate place but rather it was a dusty, run down place that could be fantastic if upkeep was done on it. The only way to see the palace was with a guide so we were herded along with ...
... area is the prettiest and closer to our hotel, so I chose to set up camp there. It was very crowded with locals but I spotted a few fair skinned people splashing about in the waves so I figured I’d be OK.

Reached the hotel half way by a small taxi (poorly organised leaving one of the hotel staff members to walk to the hotel from the airport) and half by walking with a hotel boy dragging all the bags. Guy on the night reception desk (4.30am) could hardly speak any English causing us to be delayed getting into our rooms.

I'm not sure what star accommodation this is, (if any) but wasn't too impressed not too sure what all the positive reviews are about on trip advisor?!!? The smell of the pillows..... :o!
