Nice location close to Ocean and beautiful setting

Posted 22-Nov-2016 on Orbitz
Pros: Please see above two.
Cons: Promptness is perhaps easy to improve upon.
Location: The location is beautiful but somewhat isolated from real hustles and bustles. Can not go anywhere without a vehicle.
Giving a deserving title, rest depends on your primary purpose of staying there. We were looking forward and indeed enjoyed the Ayurveda massages. Food was good with excellent service. Some of the important things that matter significantly were disappointing, such as no airconditioning in room (Certainely was wrong in assumption), receptions desk responses too slow, sleeping under ceiling fan in mosquito netting with constant fluctuations in power current, water motor failure while in shower and not restored for an hour or more. All employees are eager to please you but find slow responses. I may not stay there again but it may be ideal for some who do not see this as roughing.

Very relaxing hotel on the beach

Posted 11-Oct-2016
Pros: The staff, the treatments, the foods and also the fact that there was no constant music that some hotels play all day.
Cons: Unfortunately like all Indian beaches, the litter problem is never ending which spoils an otherwise beautiful beach!
Location: Great quiet location but only a short drive to excellent restaurants in nearby kovalam. Trips to the back waters and main temple in Trivandrum a must.
A lovely rustic hotel with excellent Ayurveda staff and therapies. The staff cannot do enough for you and the service was great! Would definitely go back!

Relaxing place. Nice pool and gardens. Rooms dark

Posted 21-Aug-2016
Pros: Very relaxing. Food was nice. Good views from restaurant and gardens All the premises are non-smoking
Cons: More hammocks 1-way Room locking system: if your partner is napping and u want to go to beach, either you leave room unlocked or lock your partner in
Location: To do: Walks by the beach. Relax and enjoy the greenery. No amenities or towns nearby, only a few shops. If wanted, try the Ayurvedic treatments
Nice relaxing stay. We booked a garden villa and arrived on a taxi prebookked with the hotel. Room was spacious (though probably our cabin was larger than usual as it had an adjacent sitting lounge) although a bit dark. Large bathroom with toiletries and basic hairdryer. Premises are nice including gardens, swimming pool and a few hammocks. Note that garden cabins don't have hammocks. Tv and Internet connection worked fine. Electricity was interrupted occasionally by no more than 5 min. A fan in the room was enough to keep us cool -no need for A/C. The entertainment programme (each night at 7:30) was quite pleasant. Food was very good (both buffet and a la carte) but mainly vegetarian. Staff were quite attentive and plenty seating spaces both facing garden and sea views. Location is right by the beach (which had a rough sea so don't expect to swim there). Free sun beds and towels provided. Other than that there's not much around, though I would recommend the music shop out of the hotel ( top of the steep hill) Overall a relaxing stay.

Lovely beach hotel

Posted 06-Jan-2016
Pros: There were a variety of health treatments available and use of a private beach, also the peace and tranquility.
Cons: The restaurant was disappointing, in the evening there was a buffet or an A la cartel menu, but you would have to wait approx 40mins for your order.
Location: There were lots of little shops nearby but we chose to stay on site because we just wanted to relax.
We booked for 5 day's, I wish we could have booked for longer, the whole experience was so relaxing. Our cottage had a sea view so we fell asleep and woke up to the sound of the ocean. All the staff were friendly and helpful, especially Parveen, the housekeeping supervisor, who would check daily that everything was okay and sort out the smallest problem straightaway.

Nice hotel, beautiful grounds and beach.

Posted 07-Dec-2015
Pros: Location -close to the beach, beautiful gardens, hammocks for relaxing, very attentive staff, clinicians and therapists.
Cons: Daily breakfast buffet had many items but less than average in quality. Bathroom plumbing did not drain after staff responded quickly tried to fix.
Location: Many good shops within walking distance.
Great service from very attentive staff. All the clinicians and therapists are excellent and caring. The property gardens and landscapes are beautifully designed and well maintained. The beach is clean and very close to the resort so we enjoyed early morning and late evening walks on the beach.

Excellent getaway for family

Great location, fantastic staff and very much kids friendly hotel. Most importantly, the ayurvedic massage is just too good.
