Worst experience of my life. Very bad room/bathroom conditions. We had never stayed in this type of room in our life till date with pathetic food quality. Please, please don't recommend this hotel to anyone.

A private access to beach hotel is the only thing you need. Superb ayurveda facilities, available free consultation by experienced ayurved doctors and large yoga rooms were bonus for us. Would like to advice hotel to add indoor games please and also bring WiFi to rooms. Food was good though expensive. Overall, a great experience.

Rooms: are all quiet, seaside, big, balcony, nice and agreable. Nethertheless, it is to check whether they may properly be closeable. My expierences with Mr. Prekumar, the director, and Mr. Ablash, chief receptionist, have been excellent. In this case of the non-closeable door I got an upgrade. Personal: As above said I feel secure and well-treated as a single traveller.... More

Advertised as 2*, but very basic - and very disappointing. First room offered had no storage space and en suite dirty. Complained. Second room offered still had no amenities but the en suite was cleaner.

Quick Review: Clean. Reasonable restaurant. Fantastic Ayurvedic centre. Close to the tourist beach and all the shops. More Detail: The staff here are friendly, but they get a little confused when it's busy and you might need to ask them the same question a few times before you get the answer. The room we had was one of the garden... More

The best thing about this hotel is its private beach which is only accessible to the hotel guests as both sides of the beach is blocked by rocks. The rooms are pretty average and for a 1-2 nights stay is not bad. The breakfast & dinner buffets are decent, however, the a la carte dishes are not that good. Staff... More
