A big thanks to Tripadvisor and its reviewers for helping us to discover Vasudevam resort in Trivandrum. We live in Dubai and wanted to take our elderly parents to spend a week's time in our native place in Trivandrum. Considering their advanced age, we were concerned about their safety during the travel and stay. But the moment we spoke to Dr. Rajan over the telephone, we knew that we were dealing with a professional. Another reason why we chose this place was because of its close proximity to our family home.
From the time we landed in Vasudevam to the time we checked out after 6 days and 5 nights during March 2014, the entire experience was a very pleasant one. Dr. Rajan, his wife and the entire crew in Vasudevam resort took very good care of us. They looked after our eldery parents as if their own. We could leave them behind at the resort when we went out of town without worrying about them as we knew that they were in safe hands. Even when our father was unwell with chest congestion and cough, Dr. Rajan organized to get Ayurvedic medicines late in the night. The rooms were clean and the food served in their rooftop dining were tasty & healthy. The cook "Chechi" was an expert cook and served the food with lot of care. Dr. Rajan helped to organize Taxis even on a short notice. Me and my wife enjoyed the morning walks and during one of those morning walks we were pleasantly surprised when we landed right in front of my "alma mater" from where I had passed out more than 32 years ago!
Some suggestions on areas for improvement - the room cleaning services were not up to the mark and we had to remind them to clean the room on a daily basis. The bathroom cleaning process can be improved to ensure a clean & dry bathroom at all times. Futher the consumables like facial tissues, soaps, shampoos were not replenished on a regular basis. From an overall experience the above were not a major issue.
To summarize this review, we are happy to put on record our sincere thanks to the management & staff of the Vasudevam resort for provinding a wonderful experience and for taking special care of our parents. We look forward to visit Vasudevam resort again.
