Excellent property with a beautiful and well spread layout...close to perfect for a relaxing holiday. Service levels at the hotel could do with some improvement in speed of response terms and communication ability of service staff (language barrier). The restaurant could improve on its vegetarian offering and is a tad expensive. A recommended destination and probably the best pick considering options around.

Had a great time with my family. Very well maintained and beautiful resort. Reasonably priced room rentals considering the ambience and quality of the resort. Extremely courteous staff. Food was fairly priced and overall quality and taste was good. The backwater cruise (1000 bucks for an hour's ride) was awesome and must do. Spent most of the time by the pool and the beach. Both I and my son have got a severe tan playing in the sun but never felt the discomfort as it was so much fun. The waves are pretty strong in the beach so no need to be careful if you are not a good swimmer. Overall, fantastic experience and a place i would definitely plan to go back again.
We will always remember our stay at Ideal Ayurvedic Resort, as a blend of different experiences, mixing medicine, relaxed stay, short walks to the nearest beach and longer trips to the surrounding attractions. If you are looking for a luxurious stay, maybe Ideal Resort is not the one, but if you want to be pampered and looked after and offered high level ayurvedic treatments, medical care and stay in clean, comfortable rooms, in other words, if you want to spend a couple of weeks feeling like being part of a family, and not as a tourist, then look no further, and book your stay with Ideal Ayurvedic Resort. Advise: do not leave the hotel, unless you have tried the purgation treatment, among all other therapies. Uncomfortable in the beginning, it will gift you a new body and spirit. Abandon yourself to the sapient hands of the well- trained and qualified practitioners. Forget problems and misery of the city life. See the world through new prospective (everyone will always welcome you with a big smile).
With special thanks to all of the staff, we greet you and renew our appointment for next year.
Hotel has got very limited choice of food, no tandoor items, breakfast was very very limited as the food was basically for folks who were getting Ayurvedic treatment done. This resort is very good for privacy, relaxation if you undergo Ayurvedic treatments. The beach is not very near you have to walk down a 50 staircase steps and then 50 more steps.

When we got to the hotel, it smelled musty. There was mould in the bedroom and more so in the bathroom. The toilet seat had black mould marks, as did the bath.
The room had not been dusted; there was dust everywhere including inside the bathroom and the chairs on the balcony.
The toiletries were decanted into bottles that were filled by staff. One on occasion, shampoo was put into a bottle that held the remains of body lotion. Very unhygienic.
Food that should have been served hot was served lukewarm and fruit and fruit drinks were served at room temperature. The tablecloth was dirty with food stains. The windows seemed not to have been cleaned in a very long time. Nothing on the menu was ever available.
