Ideal resort was booked on line and by phone and the welcome was overwhelming including help for transportation, stay food and cleanliness. We had a excellent time there. It was so peaceful and the staff was very helpful. Also was very nice consultation from Doctor and massage service. Thoroughly recommended for excellent experience away from rush and hustle bustle life.

We stayed here in late March 2014. We arrived very early hours of the morning and had arranged airport pickup from the airport. All went smoothly. Breakfast served by the pool was lovely and so too were other meals cooked for us. Beer was fetched for us too. Nice stay.

I spent November & December at Ideal Ayurvedic Resort & Panchakarm​a Centre 2013. I arrived with a swollen knee and a walking stick. I left without the stick and a bounce in my step. Nothing was too hard. I was massaged to within an inch of my life and I loved it. The food was great thanks to Binu, especially... More

We arrived very early in the morning after a long trip, but it was no problem to check in so early. We felt very welcome, loved the pool, great food, awesome ayurvedic treatments. we would definitely recommend this... More

In January 2014 I visited this resort for two weeks including their Ayurvedic package. It was one of the best things I ever did. The treatments are wonderful, the staff is great and always ready to help. This intimate and relaxing resort makes you feel very welcome and the personal attention is touching. Excellent value for money!

Room was large and clean, lovely bathroom, hot water, but the bed was way too hard for us, a general gripe we had in two or three places - it seems you have to pay over £20 a night if you want a decent mattress! We booked because of the swimming pool, which was small but fine for cooling off.... More

On my first day in India I had an accident that was serious enough to mean I wouldn't be able to walk around for a week or so. I'm so grateful that I had just checked in to Ideal... I was treated with such kindness and consideration. They took great care of an injured traveler who was far away from... More

I really couldn't recommend this place highly enough - I went out over Christmas and New Year for just over 2 weeks. I booked online and they didn't ask for any upfront payment so I was a bit worried but at 4am - my pick up was there. At home I was definitely tempted by the expensive resorts further down... More
