We stopped here for one night only, because we were flying home the next day. It is a beautiful place in a quiet part of Calicut. The food was excellent and we were well looked after. It has good access for the airport

My husband and I only spent one night at Harivihar Heritage Home, in the quiet old streets of Kozhikode. We would have enjoyed being able to spend longer there and experience some of the ayurvedic treatments on offer. It is a beautifully restored old home with a lovely garden and antiques to admire and we had a comfortable room with... More

I travelled from Coimbatore by train and continued onto Mangalore and Goa, breaking my journey in Kozhikode. The city itself has a lot to see. The market area, temples, churches, beaches and the historic area known as Kuttichira is fascinating. I appreciated the advice I received for places to visit and could easily have spent more time here for day... More

Harivihar is a throw back in time. Beautifully restored, large rooms, very clean. Lots and lots of Mosquitos and Very, very hot in Feb so ask for one of the only two rooms with AC. The town is interesting to explore and you can feel the prosperity from family members of Calicut homes working in the Gulf states and sending... More

Harivihar is the perfect place to arrive in India, the place to slow down and just be. The garden is wonderful and you have plenty of opportunity to do yoga and ayurveda, eat delicious and healthy food and chat with the most obliging staff and the owner of the Heritage Home. Calicut is not touristic, yet it's worthwhile to take... More

We spent 5 days here, doing yoga and massage in the morning and work & relaxing in the afternoons. It's a great place to unwind, get away from usual stress and just stand back. Contrarily to what I can read above, I had very good massage, with an increasing strength every day. How intensive you want the massage to be... More

Harivihar Ayurvedic Heritage Home at Bilathikulam, Calicut is an old 'mansion', restored to its pristine glory and offered to guests as one of the most pleasant accommodation cum rejuvenation centres.
