We planned to stay for five days, but stayed for another seven. We were picked up at the airport by a taxi arranged by the hotel. The hotel has a good atmosphere and a friendly and most helpful manager, Aravind. He also helped us with to arrange our sightseeing trips. The beach is three minutes away and in fact it's no drawback. The rooms are spacy and clean, got very good beds with proper mosquito nets and private terraces - and ofcourse nice bathrooms with always hot water. It's also possible to get your clothes washed. Aravind is a very good cook too! He has worked as cook for 25 years and make faboulous vegetarian and non-vegetarian meals. And you can even drink the tapwater there! The water comes from 300 feet underground. All in all we are very happy about our stay and it couldn't be better!

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Vedic Heritage Boutique Hotel is a speciality beach hotel with a difference. We are situated in the quite lush green coconut grove just behind the main busy beach front. You can see the sea from the balcony of your room through the palm tops. The architecture of the hotel was carefully designed with Vaastu Shastra ( the vedic principles of architecture in a tropical climate) to facilitate natural lighting and free movement of air circulation inside the building to avoid the use of air conditioning in the rooms. The hotel has a natural cooling and a pleasant inner climate. Our guests dont need to buy (dead) water in plastic bottles and contribute to the enviornmental catatrophe from plastic bottles in India. We have our own 260 ft. deep borewell that gives us pure mineral water. The guests can brush their teeth and wash their mouths safely from the water tap in their rooms. In order to balance and smoothen the mineral content in the water for drinking purpose we have a UV water purifier that guarantees 100% bacteria free water of medical hygiene quality. ... more less
