Very helpful staff

Posted 11-Nov-2014
The Hotel Manager and staff are very helpful and always try to support where they can. Room at his cooperation Hotel pebble Beach Was Clean and had hot water:) The only thing I can not recommend is the restaurant. Maybe it is worth to check other options around.

Very Relaxing Atmosphere

Posted 03-Nov-2014
Cons: The food quality can be improved.I was served cold food and that was kind of a disappointment.
This was possibly one of the best vacations I had in a very long time. Not only was the atmosphere please but the environment complimented it.Would love to visit it again.Definitely worth a second visit.

Unique Ayurveda experience

Posted 16-Oct-2014
Pros: we were very happy with our choice.
Cons: With a small touch of walls painting, and attention to details, Ideal will have nothing to envy from surrounding 4star hotels.
Location: 1) Fine dining at Maya, Trivandrum 2) Unforgettable breakfast in Manaltheeram hotel. 3) Shopping experience of gold and local fabrics in Chalia rd
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.

Oase der Ruhe

Posted 29-Dec-2013
Pros: Das Pool und Garten. Das Personal und die Gäste
Location: In Chowara, schöner Strand zu Füß 10 mn sonst ziemlich ruhig und authentisch Fürs Restaurant etc...15mn mit Taxi bis nach Kowalam
Ich habe mich im Hotel Ideal Ayurvedic Resort 2 Wochenlang wohl gefühlt. Alles lief ab dem Transfer vom Flughafen bis zur Abreise wie geplant.. Es war eine Zeit der Entspannung und ein Ort der Erholung mit Yoga Kurse und ayurvedische Massagen, die im Hotel angeboten sind. Das Hotelpersonal war sehr bemüht und nett. Der "General Manager" war sehr sympatisch und sprach sehr gut englisch, und stand immer zu Verfügung. Mein Zimmer war sauber und groß und verfügte über Ventilatoren. Wlan Verbindung ist auch vorhanden. Das Hotel befindet sich zwar nicht direkt am Strand aber der wunderschöne Strand ist nur 10 Minuten entfernt und der Weg dahin einen Spaziergang wert. Das Frühstück entsprach dem Preis. Tagsüber kann man auch im Hotelrestaurant essen. Da die meisten Gäste zur ayurvedischen Kur da sind, sind die Gerichte meistens vegetarisch. Für mich war es schmackhaft und ausreichend. Insbesondere habe ich die Zeit am Pool oder im Hotelgarten genossen. Eine wahre Oase der Ruhe.

Great ayurvedic treatments

Posted 26-Mar-2013 on Hotels.com
This resort is one of the best places in India to have ayurvedic treatments - highly recommended! Addition to that there's a really nice beach about 15 minutes walk from the resort. There's a little spot in front of the Manatheeram Resort where're some chairs and umbrellas but otherwice the beach is empty and there're just some fishermans with their boats. Really nice! The Ideal Ayurvedic Resort's rooms are very plain and simply but good price compared to quality. We found a one cockroach in a bathroom but when we were complaining about it to the staff the rest of the time we spend at the resort was a bug free zone. :) Altough we heard that in the first floor they were suffering from cockroaches, but we stayed in the second floor at the pool side and that was okay.

not to be recommended.

Posted 13-Mar-2013
Pros: the friendly staff and the nice pool,
Cons: mr grumpy
Location: not much in the way of facilities such as bars and restaurants close by and the walk back from the beach, which was not very good, was very steep.
shower was very poor, very little hot water, the windows would not even close never mind lock. some guests complained about not getting any hot water at all on some days. the man that seemed to be in charge hardly ever seemed to speak to anybody but the rest of the staff were very friendly. overall i enjoyed the holiday because i just wanted a relaxing time but the hotel could have been a lot better and i would not book there again.
