First, I must admit. This is a nice property. However, based on the reviews, you would have thought this was the Shangri-La (it's not). My "stay" began with a yelling match between myself and the guy handling reservations. He was extremely rude and unhelpful. I had hoped when I got there that the front desk guys would be friendlier, but... More

It's about 2 years old and very modern , the room is huge with a balcony over looking a new garden ( not well established yet),and pool. But no other views. The room looked like a... More

I stayed here for 2 weeks. I was introduced to a very different kind of healing system which I have not heard about before. It was a wonderful experience. I had an experience of deep meditation too. It was very relaxing. I felt my body very light. There is a beautiful pool here and the garden was fantastic. Feels like... More

Lovely hotel that my wife and I visited in January. The pool area was great and the pool is clean. Room was spotless and the staff were really nice. 5 min walk to The Cliff for dinner and drinks. Really enjoyed our stay and would recommend the resort for peace.

While staying at Akhil I did 3 weeks of yoga with Rajeev and absolutely loved it. Rajeev is a patient teacher, always explaining the benefits of the poses and doing a brilliant relaxation meditation at the end. Put simply, practising with Rajeev everyday made me happy and healthy on every level. I was also taught a system of spiritual healing... More

We could say it in one word about this place is a, paradise!!!. This is very new. But very traditionally built cottages. 15 meters away from the beach.! very calm and quiet beautiful place. Beautiful rooms and nice big bathrooms, you do not need to go to anywhere to see the beautiful sunset, enjoy the sunset from your own varandha.!!!!... More

I stayed at the Raja Park, across the road, and used the Akhil for meals and reception services such as money changing. The food was very good and the waiters always had a smile. Occasionally the service was slow if they were full but most of the time if was OK. There was a wide menu of all styles of... More

In a great position, a few minutes walk from the cliff. Everything was clean and well kept, the bar and reception areas were well staffed and service was always great, without being pushy. Beautiful grounds, fabulous pool. Great value for money - especially if you can sleep without A/C. Would book here again, without hesitation.
