We booked 2 AC rooms facing the pool, the rooms were clean with big shower, simple but nice. The staff is also very nice.

We only booked it for the pool which was disappointing due to...

Very friendly atmosphere, nice clean rooms, great yoga on the roof. Helpful manager and beautiful surroundings with a great local restaurant on the Main Street, enjoy your vegetarian rice and curry. Walk the small streets and have a local chai tee.

If you want to get away from it all in India , are interested in Ayurveda, quiet beaches and are on a budget this is a great place to stay. Its located just 5min walk from Chowara Beach, and I believe this beach is much less spoiled and peaceful than the more well known beaches around kovalam, lighthouse beach or...
