We did not book a package (which most other people did) so we booked some single massage treatments after seeing the ayurveda doc, went to the yoga class and had the ayurvedic food from the restaurant. The additional charge (if you did not book a package) is very... More

Just a delight to stay at. The staff are all friendly - it truly feels like coming home. Clean, well kept and comfortable. A nice variety of pools, beach and food. Treatment centre fantastic too. Highly recommend the resort aand treatment centre.

After having been there twice already, I spent two weeks there during the summer and I really hope it won't be my last visit. The place is stunning, it's right at the coast and next to the most beautiful sandy beach I have seen in my life. What differentiates Bethsaida from the other hotels that I've seen at Kovalam, is...

We stayed here for 10 days last January (2014) . Bethsaida Hermitage is beautiful, tranquill and one of the most relaxing places I have stayed. The beach is lovely but the sea was too rough to swim in when we were there. However, there are 2 big pools which are the perfect spot to watch the sea while sunbathing and... More

It was my first trip to Kerala and it left only excellent memories and desire to regularly come back. The place is not for those who love entertaining. It is good for quite rest and treatment. Soul has a rest there.
