TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Seaview Kanyakumari
Kanyakumari is the tip of India where the Bay of Bengal, Arabian Sea and Indian Ocean meet so its not a place to stay for more than a night or two. We had to stay for three and the rooms were clean, the sea veiw room was lovely. Street view had a balcony. What makes this hotel nice is the staff. From check in to room service. The food in the restaurant is very good. We ate there several time and breakfast is also really good. Centrally located and very accommadating. If you are going to stay there you might as well have the seaview if its available.

... visited the water well that we have paid for along with the support from our family and friends. If ever I feel I'm working hard in the garden again, I will think of the Indian man five meters down at the bottom of the well, sweet beading all over him, chipping away at the granite like rock until he reached water. Another five meters and hopefully we'll hear Eureka! The family were extremely grateful for our contribution. We were even introduced to their pet turtle. And ...
... rejection? How responsible am I for the way my actions summon emotions in others?
Still, I put my thoughts to the side and tried to remember where I was. No time to dwell; this wasn’t the place to feel taken out of the moment. Letting things go as well as I could I spotted a Hindu temple. Turning from the stairs to see the memorial one last time, there he was, the Tsunami Watchman, throwing his hand up in an exaggerated wave as soon as our ...
... did go into the Kumari Amman temple. Where Wade had to remove his shirt to enter and we were of course asked for a donation. There is also a Ghandi memorial here where once again a sizeable donation was asked of us. We didn’t particularly like the feel of this town and it seemed that most people who owned stalls etc were quite happy to scam tourists. We even had people trying to charge us double for water(items actually have the market price stamped on them). There were ...
