What a super nice surprise of a hotel! I was really happy with my choice to stay here even though I actually wanted to stay in a different area. The hotel is super nice, breakfast buffet is incredible and staff are really nice! Couldn't have chosen a better place to stay.

The O by Tamara is a beautiful property very close to the Lulu Mall. The entrance was beautiful and front desk very helpful. The rooms are immaculate and the bathroom facilities are very good. No bathtub but the shower was very nice. Food is excellent and I have to make special mention of Robin TS the F&B Manager who went out of his way to ensure that I have meal reservations each day to accommodate my busy meeting schedules. Overall a very good hotel, very good customer service. Highly recommended.

6/10 Good

The property was fine for usual 5 star standards . Rooms were clean . but every small thing was an expensive add-on. For eg. Banana chips small packet, local to Trivandrum, which you would think is a welcome gift for the room guests but was instead 130 rupees! 😮. Breakfast was not included which is pretty standard for all luxury hotels. The on-site restaurant was good food but very pricey.
