Well run and presented hotel at Chowara, several kilometres from Kovalam. While a key focus of "New Ideal" is it's Ayurvedic treatments it is also a good accomodation option for people like me who are just looking for a good, reasonably priced place close to a nice stretch of beach. I found the Manager, Shamer, to be excellent. He takes... More

My husband and I visited this Ayurvedic resort, because it had been highly recommended by a Canadian friend who benefiited greatly from her treatment. The whole atmosphere is one of peace and calm, set in the tall swaying palm trees with the most beautiful, quiet beach, just 10 minutes away. There were many European guests staying here, who all looked... More

Rude staff welcomed us to the dreadful "New Ideal", didn't offer us anything, even a smile after our long 4hr journey and was quickly ushered into our room, which smelt of damp/wee... To avoid the smell we went down to the pool which was also filthy and hadn't been cleaned. The place was like a ghost town with me only... More

If I had written this review when I 1st arrived at the new ideal hotel, it wouldn't have gotten any stars. I was gutted!!! So much so, in fact I didn't unpack my suitcase for 2 days! But we had travelled a long way, and I was very tired, so not in the best frame of mind. Now 2 weeks... More

I was at the New Ideal in early and late. There was a change of management in between, so I’ll just be reviewing the changes that were introduced within that context. Bookings through online platforms are still much cheaper than through the hotel website. However, you can only book a room through a platform and will have to contact the... More
