Lovely property, great rooms, wonderful service, excellent food.

Spending 3 days there is a real treat. Bungalows are spacious and clean and very close to the beach which is safe and so warm! The restaurant basically serves Ayurvedic food which is just delicious, even if you are used to eating non-vegetarian! Staff is very friendly and professional. Just anticipate some time when you check out in order to face administrative Indian problems. The Ayurvedic center is quite good with large rooms and nice staff. A fantastic place to relax and to get shaped! About 90 minutes from Kochi airport.

First, I would like to thank all staff members working at the Nattika resort for their professionalism and dedication.
I am well known as being a very difficult customer to satisfy when it comes to service and quality, but this time with this beautiful resort I was 100% satisfied and pleased since I checked in.
I strongly recommend every one to choose this resort because of their greatest asset which is people. Will be back

My second visit to Nattika Beach Resort and what an amazing difference every year. Surely, The Management takes lot of care in recruiting and managing the staff. Few old faces too. I could give 101 out of 100 in all aspects. Right from the reception, restaurant, house keeping, ayurveda treatment staff - high quality people, it's from the resort General Manager who was seemed enthusiastic all the time while I was there, saw him quiet often correcting his staff many times, very decent and passionate chap. German staff surprised me working in the resort too, all together gave me a high impression, I never missed my children. I am definitely bringing my mother and daughter next year, if the visa works out well for everyone in my family. Tip Box is something truly admirable when I saw that in all the departments, what a thought. A big hug to the lovely team at Nattika, saw few of them handling difficult russians in explaining the queue system at buffet. An ayurveda retreat and full value for it's price. The best Indian Hospitaity I had seen ever unlike other places,even in kerala. Lovely.

The tranquility, kindness and peaceful atmosphere at Nattika is a sheer bliss, and I went back home destressed and a lot healthier, than I arrived two weeks earlier.
The resort is beautiful, my villa (101) was well maintained and appointed. I especially enjoyed the layout of the terrasse, where hours can be spent relaxing. And the open-air bathroom is quite nice. I have stayed at many 5-stars hotels, and although the furniture, buildings, restaurant interior a.s.o. at the Nattika are less luxurios and opulent than at a five star resort, you immediately felt that this place has redefined luxury. The service I met was exquisite, from the chauffeurs, reception staff, kitchen staff, the guys in the restaurant, the gardeners, housekeeping and the maintenance people. Everybody was kind and open to my requests and their service was sincere and friendly.
The Ayurvedic Centre offers terrific treatments, and I immensely enjoyed the cooperation between the doctors and my two skillful therapists. The daily consultations to summarize my constitution and experiences were very comforting, and the massages and treatments were beyond my imagination. They were thorough, various and well-founded. Very professional.
The Nattika Beach resort is much more than a wellness/beach resort, and I have already booked my next Ayurvedic holiday for next year. This time for three weeks.

This was my second visit to the Nattika Beach Resort, the first having taken place in early 2011.

My overall impression is, as it was back then, entirely positive. The Nattika Beach is an enormously well maintained resort with a high degree of adaptability when it comes to special requests and personal matters. The staff occupying all primary areas (reception, room service, restaurant and treatment) is qualified and very aware of the guests and their needs.

While the resort is not exclusively for guests undergoing Ayurveda treatment, the majority of the guests are there for treatment. However, expect to meet the occasional child at play and be aware that people can order meat dishes in the restaurant, if they wish to. The included buffet however is purely vegetarian.

The food is of very high quality and the staff will always serve you swiftly and reliably. They also are very friendly and kind. Any questions asked will be answered and i cannot remember a single occasion on which i sat there any else than relaxed and satisfied. As for the reviewer who complained about the taste of the food - naturally the ayurvedic kitchen serves a different purpose than the classical indian one, so the taste will be different, smoother, lighter and not as intrusive. But calling the food tasteless is absolutely off track! Its obviously a biased exaggeration. Furthermore, the restaurant now also features, on each dinner and lunch, three different extra spicy dishes for anyone who looks for some more punch.

The rooms are clean and well maintained (no mould) - but there are a few rooms that suffer from a higher degree of noise (the ones closest to the reception and restaurant) - if you are sensitive to noise, these are to be avoided!

Room service is done daily and carefully. New towels, bedsheets and all else, are entirely possible on a daily basis if you so wish to.

Finally, the treatments are very well organized. The doctors are highly qualified and experienced, most of the therapists are totally committed and will provide top notch therapy using only highest quality oils and materials.

The Nattika Beach Resort employs at least one trainee from Europe, usually German but with proper english skills, so if you are having trouble with English (which can be used all over the resort with no issues), you can still get along in terms of communication.

The beach is beautiful and the area around the resort is cleaned up very nicely. No trash!

The resort manager is committed and, even though when required it may take some time to get a hold of him, he will generally try to do his best to satisfy your needs.

Altogether, from the seven Ayurvedic resorts i have visited, the Nattika Beach is the best.

Nonetheless there are two issues that i simply cannot skip or agree with.

1.) While the restaurant offers a large buffet and keeps the pots and bowls full at all times, guess what happens to the leftovers - they are simply going to the trash! This is, by my opinion, simply not acceptable in a country such as India. I suggest that the resort owners start a program to help people in need who live in Thrissur and vicinity. Many could use the food and, believe it or not, most of the tourists cannot handle their feelings of guilt when enjoying such a high classed holiday in the middle of a country in which so many people starve. Guests would appreciate and value solutions to this and i am sure the locals would less resent the existance of such resorts if they would give something back to the communities. Even though Kerala has a fairly good standard, i find it hard to believe that nobody could use that food for good.

2.) Russian guests. No need to take a political side here - i have met many Russians and i liked all of them. Yet, take the Bethsaida Hermitage for instance, who became so committed to serving the onstorm of Russians who simply cannot handle doing Ayurveda without smoking, eating tons of meat, listening to loud music with their portables and generally ignoring any rule that is setup to provide a healing and relaxing atmosphere. The Bethsaida went down hill with this, for the sake of profit. If this happens to the Nattika Beach, then all of what is written above can simply be discarded. I hope this is not going to happen. Take Nikki's nest for instance - they know very well about those problems and they act accordingly, serving as a very good example!

Even though those two issues are important to me, none of them have in any way lowered the quality of my stay, personally, which is why my ratings do not reflect these two issues in any way.

Bottomline: if you want a real professional and relaxing Ayurvedic Cure experience, look no further. For now, the Nattika Beach can give this to you and i highly recommend you try it out. They totally deserve their good ratings!!

Room Tip: The farther from the reception and the restaurant, the better.

My husband and I stayed at Nattika last March and it was amazing. The resort was spotless clean, the food was so outstanding we wanted to take The Chef Joshy home with us. The Ayurvedic treatments were very organised and professional and the staff were most helpful and friendly. The Ayurvedic packages are an excellent choice great value. The yoga and meditation was a great extra with excellent instructors I loved having my fresh pomegranate juice for breakfast and coconuts picked fresh at the resort . It was a perfect retreat after a 12 day tour of Rajasthan. Being a vegan it was heaven so much choice. We will definitely return one day only next time for 3 weeks not 10 days.
