We have never been to such an awesome and amazing place before. On our walks near the beach outside the resort we experienced that we had the the cleanest private beach in South India. There are always life guards who always pay attention and take care of you. This is for the whole area. From the gate of the resort... More

It is the pace that makes you to be back again and again. Wonderful nature, calm and relaxing athmosphere. I always feel like I am home among my family. I love Bethsaida and miss it every day, right after departure until new arrival.

This is a place where you feel like home, but in the middle of the the whole day you are in focus. Everything - the nature, the drinks, and food, and the the people who are surrounding you - helps you to relax and change your mentality. Thank you 1x more for the comfortable relaxation.

I can't say enough about how much I loved Bethsaida Hermitage! Set in a lovely beach paradise, Bethsaida is a perfect place to go for ayurvedic healing. I spent two weeks there and received fantastic care from my amazing massage therapists Arun and Alex. Dr. Shayinam set me on a detox regimen that was very effective. Every person working at... More

Naturally made private beach in a state where private beaches seems non existant. Perfect environment, very well kept. Perfect place for ayurveda treatments, except if you want to go for some hardcore ayurveda programs. This is a perfect place to retreat, relax, rejuvenate according to basics if ayurveda. Serious ayurveda medical treatments probably are to be taken in other, not... More

When you are looking for a very comfortable resort in a stunning position at the sea for Ayurveda, then Behtsaida will be one of the best. The rooms are spacious, the views great, the treatments and therapists very good. The service good. And if you are having your birthday during your stay you are surprised well. The only thing I...

I have been there three times in the last 7 years and Bethsaida just gets better! Hoping to go back. I stayed in an a/c room - and I would have been too hot in the room without that. Food wise I always bought in biscuits and cake - yummy - cos i didn't always go for the desert options.... More

The resort is on top of a secluded cliff with two quiet and beautiful private beaches (with lifeguard), with also two swimming pools overlooking the sea. The splendid location, its luxuriant, enormous garden, and pampering services offered by the ayurvedic clinic of the hotel are matched only by the kindness of the staff. Exquisite food is available almost all day... More
