Chilling on the beach

Posted 12-Nov-2014 on Hotels
This property is very beautiful, but somewhat remote. The huts do not have A/C, but the fan and the ocean breeze meant this was not a problem. The grounds are situated in a palm tree grove on a cliff top over looking a secluded endless beach. If your looking for a place to totally relax and spend hours in a hammock listening to the waves crash on the beach, this is the place. You can get a taxi to take you to the tourist areas in town for dinner and shopping, for around 700 round trip with wait time included. We enjoyed my stay. Only complaint was that our stay ended too soon.

Fantastic service all over

Too short. I will be back. All the staff were there to make your stay comfortable, and they nearly knew your needs before, you self did.

Wonderful environment near the beach

Posted 27-Dec-2013 on Hotels
Nice spacious clean cabins in a very beautiful calm environment near the beach. If you are use to a soft bed, you might find the beds a bit hard. Good service and friendly staff. Also very good ayurvedic treatments, special ayurvedic food and yogalessons. We enjoyed our stay very much.

Very nice ayurveda resort

Posted 26-Nov-2013
Cons: Towels and sheets very old, sometimes with spots :(
Location: Just 25 min drive to Trivadrum (the capital of Kerala state) and 15 min walk to Chiwara vilalge.
Very nice ayurveda resort is located only few steps from the beach. Peasfull & relaxing place for the rest. Reseption & restaurant staff is extremely helpfull. Good choice of dishes all marked for differet types like vata, pita & capa. Breakfast & buffet are vegiterian, but menu a la cart with sea food, fish and chiken. The only opportunity are: they need to change their antique towels to new one :-).

Lovely, but doesn't match description

Posted 04-Nov-2013
Cons: This place really needs a non-alcoholic bar.
Location: I took the backwaters boat tour, which was lovely. It could have been better if Kerala enforced the no-motors policy.
First, let me say that I enjoyed my stay, and plan to visit again next year. But let me point out that the room amenities don't match the Expedia description at all. The bed is not a Sleep Number (by a long shot); there is no separate living room or dining area; there is no bathtub of any kind; no washer/dryer; no sofa bed. Turns out I didn't really need any of these things, but they could spare the guest some initial disappointment by describing the rooms accurately. Furthermore, I booked a special cottage - which according to their literature is supposed to have a sea view - and don't think I got one. The best thing about this resort is its focus on customer service. It's the best you'll find in India, outside of five-star hotels. Next to that, location is wonderful - on a small cliff above the ocean - not a problem at all to walk down (or even back up). The huts are nice. Overall, the ambience is perfect: quiet, healthy, and happy. What this place really needs though is a bar. Alcohol isn't served at the resort, which is fine, but why not a shaded place to sip on healthy emulsions or tasty mocktails? This would have improved my experience greatly. I had to take a cab to Kovalam in order to get a good cold drink.

vi fick mkt fint välkomnande och deras Ayurveda klinik var ren o fräsch. mkt vacker trädgård o privat egen strand. inget direkt i närheten men det löste vi med att åka taxi till Kovalam några dar. ta egen taxi- hotellet tar ofta dubbelt upp mot standard pris när de bokar åt en.
