I can usually criticise some places in the world but I can say that I have never stayed anywhere which is so absolutely perfect! - Location, accommodation, staff, packages, food - this is a 5 star resort. I took a 12 day Ayurvedic treatment package which was wonderful. The Ayurvedic doctors and therapists were professional and knowledgeable about there work... More

If you wish for tranquillity, excellent service, quality therapeutic treatment and wonderful cuisine, then this is the place to visit. A beautiful setting of immaculate gardens gently falling down in terraces to the Arabian sea with clean, spacious and attractive accommodation. A place of peace and spirituality. Not a place for those who wish for night life or who have... More

Our room was large and clean - we weren't allowed the ac remote though. Most guests appeared to be on a package deal which included ayrrvedic and it... More

Spent four days at Bethsaida with girlfriends and decided that the Ayurveda massage was superfluous. Lovely staff, gorgeous grounds and a tidy beach, where we swam, watched fishermen pull in their daily catch and negotiated with ever-present, but cheerful vendors.

I visited the Bethsaida Hermitage with my wife and daughter just after Christmas 2013 and was impressed by the beautiful location, private beach, lovely garden and two very good swimming pools. On the negative side the resort does not normally serve alcohol which is very unusual for India. In addition the rooms are quite basic with no bath in the... More

Amazing grounds, 2 beautiful swimming pools, an excellent restaurant, fab treatments, comfortable rooms (non a/c not so good in Dec/jan), beautiful beaches and very professional staff. We had our 2 children with us and the staff welcomed... More
