I spent time at Ideal Resort in February 2014 and had a very relaxing stay. The ayurvedic treatments are first rate and there is such a variety of treatments available that there is something for everyone to try. A doctor is also available each day to answer any questions and make recommendations for specific treatments. The staff at the resort... More

The doctor, the therapists are amazing and their humility and pride is uplifting. The food is local, fresh every day from markets and cooked to perfection. Don't take your fussy appetites there, live... More

The property is situated down a narrow street that leads from the main road to Chowara Beach. To put this review into perspective you must decide why one would go here. We went for their aryuvedic treatment and therefore the standard of accommodation was less important. The rooms are basic , with A/C and not much else. However, the treatments... More

This is the second time I visit this resort, staying for a couple weeks for treatment. The treatments are really good, the resort is relaxing and comfortable. Staff is friendly. I would recommend it to others and visit again. I have not stayed in many hotels/resorts that are "perfect". Few things in real life are perfect. So, with regards to... More

This hotel is where I have been telling friends travelling around the Kovalam/ Kerala area to stay. I arrived after several days at Lighthouse beach with friends. An exotic storm came in not long after settling into my room, and I got to sit on my balcony, reading with a cup of masala chai and biscuits ordered from the kitchen.... More

We arrived very very late at the place. 'The manager' was waiting for us. He is an angel. After travelling in Tamil Nadu, two girls alone, they wouldn't aspect such politeness and care. We were starving. He gave us something to eat near the swimming pool and we were grateful. Quite place full of strange birds wich sing during the... More

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.
