Guide for booking hotels in Trivandrum:
Trivandrum, or Thiruvananthapuram, the capital of Kerala, is famous for its crystal clear beaches, historic monuments, backwater stretches and rich cultural heritage. The city is spread over undulating seven hills and is the perfect destination for a quaint getaway. Stay in one of the villas flaunting rustic thatched-roof style architecture for a unique and memorable stay experience.
Thampanoor is the top pick for accommodation to explore the city's artistic side. The neighbourhood has several budget and mid-range hotels near the railway station, bus stand and tourist attractions like Karikkakom Sri Chamundi Temple, Napier Museum and Sree Padmanabhaswamy Temple.
Varkala beach, Lighthouse beach and Kovalam beach are popular beach destinations in Kerala. The beaches are 20 kilometres from Trivandrum and are lined with lavish villas and luxury resorts overlooking azure lagoons and the Arabian Sea. Along with modern amenities, excellent hospitality and zesty culinary experiences at their multi-cuisine restaurant, a few properties offer Ayurvedic massages and personalized health treatments. There are also many traditional Kerala-style cottages at a walkable distance from the beach. If travelling for work, stay in one of the hotels in Shankumugham. The area is near the airport and Shankumugham beach and is well connected to the rest of the city through public transport.
