    Ayurvedic Centre on cliff top with access to beach

    I stayed here for the first 10 days in December 2015. The resort was a bit difficult to find in amongst a sparse neighbourhood that was quiet. I did not take the Ayurvedic Package but had booked room with breakfast only. I stayed in Room 20 quite close to the reception area. The room was a basic room and being on ground floor attracted a lot of creepy crawlies which was my only concern and criticism. The building is surrounded by lush greenery and trees and plants which combined with frequent rain (rained most of the time I was there) lends itself to increased appearances from mosquitoes and other insects which could interfere with enjoyment. The eating area is also outside (shack type setting) which again attracts crows etc but it is something one gets accustomed to. I think the hotel could do more in terms of making it pest free, only requires a small amount of effort and minor repairs which could make a big difference though. Had to put up with a few electricity cuts during stay but the benefit of being in a room near the reception area is that you get wifi and internet access which is not available in other parts of the resort. The resort is small with limited rooms so there can be a nice family type feel and safe environment. The food was good and cheap and chefs were very accommodating in cooking dishes to your requirements. All /kitchen staff and waiters were most pleasant. The resident doctors also very pleasant and had always had time to talk. Had a good holiday!

    Pros: Food, staff, treatments, close to beach

    Cons: The rooms and eating area

    Location: Nice stretch of beach, secluded. Easy access to North Cliff on otherside. Easy to get into town by tuk tuk and explore authentic lifestyle of locals

    4/5 Good
