My wife and I spent a week at Bethsaida. Everything was perfect from the airport pickup to the Ayurvedic treatments to the comfortable rooms, the private beach and the huge swimming pools. Service and meals were spectacular. Daily yoga to the sound of local fishermen hauling in their nets was a highlight. You will never get better massages anywhere on...

We've been doing Ayurveda every year for 11 years. We've been in many different resorts in Kerala and also in Tamil Nadu. Bethsaida is really the best resort in many aspects. It has the most beautiful housing area. Also during low season the doctors take more time to take care of you and the therapists do their job well and...

Rooms were nice. The staff there were friendly and helpful. They also had a nice library, 2 swimming pools and an amazing restaurant with delicious food. The place is clean and well managed. Sometimes in the night, they had cultural performances also.

Very good and strong ayurveda. With high qualify doctors. Accommodation is quite simple, but it's doesn't matter if you are coming for treatment here. Bethsaida was build by chatolic family in traditional style and you even can find chapel there. Cosy and pretty!

Beautiful property. Large, green, uniquely decorated. Staff is mostly friendly, except for a few people. Rooms are very plain but very authentic and unique. Housekeeping here is not the best, they never refill shower accessorizes unless you ask them. Also, be prepared that there are insects in the room. I really enjoyed yoga, the teacher was great and the fact...

I´ve been at Bethsaida three years ago and this time I was there with my husband and my son. I was not really sure if they would enjoy the place as much as I did - no meat, no alcohol - but they were very delighted. We had a really great time there and are very thankful for all the...

One of the most blessed places (beach and garden) in the world we have seen so far - and we have seen many! It is run by a directory which cares very much about the nature and sustainability. The very profound ayurveda concept is represented professionally by a very motivated and trained staff. The vegetarian cooking is delightfull and very...
