The general manager was very concerned about our welfare, the food was excellent. However be aware that except in the christmas season, they do not offer alcoholic beverages. In addition as it was monsoon season, the beach was not available. Also some maintenance was going on, so there was only one restaurant available. We did not miss it, the absence... More

We spent only 2 nights at Canourstie Resort but it was perfect. It's a good place to stay after a long trip in south India. The resort is beautifully landscaped, the beach is wonderful. There are only 30 villas so you can enjoy a sense of privateness. We had chance to try the Ayurveda center and we really enjoyed it.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Carnoustie Ayurveda & Wellness Resort, situated at the Marari beach close to the Alappuzha backwaters, comprises of 40 luxury villas, a traditional Ayurveda Spa, Two Backwater Suite in Muhamma, One Two Bedroom House Boat and a Sailing Club. The villas are designed to reduce energy and water consumption as well as minimize the use of exhaustible materials. The eco-friendly resort ensures that we use materials such as jute, bamboo, recycled cardboard instead of wood, reprocessed plastic and scrap wood. While at the resort, travellers can take lake/ backwater tours to gaze at the gorgeous paddy fields of Alapphuza, try out the early-morning yoga sessions, unwind at the beach, relax at the spa, enjoy performances by local traditional dancers and Kerala’s range of percussion music, try their hand at night fishing, cycle around villages or sail the backwaters and learn a bit of archery. ... more   less
