This hotel was supposed to be a paradise on earth. My expectations were extremely high when arriving into this hotel. The travel agency had recommended this place and therefore I expected flawless service and spectacular hotel. The first major problem occurs when trying to communicate with the staff at hotel. Only the managers seemed to speak English. With the others... More

I am not a health & wellness resort expert and this was my first experience of this nature. I am also not a vegetarian, but as it was my wife's 50th birthday wish to spend 5 days on a Detox, I opted for this program. Through Yoga, Abhyngam, Marma Therapy, Podikizhi and Kalari Massages, I ended up feeling fantastic. The... More

We were transported to our bungalow on a golf buggy, and were told that we had been upgraded to a deluxe bungalow with private pool. This got our holiday off to a great start! Our accommodation was spacious, beautifully air conditioned and with doors opening out on to decking we loved the small pool that was naturally shaded by tall... More

We stayed at the Carnoustie in February 2016. We were not on the Ayruveda Wellness package. It was an outstanding experience from start to finish. The hotel is immaculate in every respect. It sits in a jungle setting, with coconut palms, manicured lawns & beautiful shrubs & flowers everywhere. The rooms are all in the form of grass-roofed bungalows. We... More

I recently spent a week at this heavenly place and was reluctant to leave!The inspired creators hired untrained people from the nearby fishing village to build, to plant and to partially staff the resort and what they have done has brought to life the resort-spa of my dreams. Carnoustie is refined, elegant without being glitzy and serious without being spartan.... More

I stayed at Carnoustie over the Christmas holidays in 2015. We were not on the Ayurveda wellness package but stayed at the hotel on the bed and breakfast package which proved to be quite costly. It's a good resort, family friendly, and the beach is small but well maintained. There are yoga (hatha style) classes available twice a day which... More

This was without doubt the most amazing, enlightening and thoroughly relaxing break I've ever had. The service was impeccable. You couldn't help but smile as all staff, from gardeners and cleaners to waiters and management staff smiled and greeted you everywhere you went. The villa and amenities are beautifully kept and presented. I had a little trouble with a/c but... More

Carnoustie was the last place of our vacation. We spent time at the Taj Malabar, a Houseboat and Kumarakom Lake Resort. We thought it couldn't get any better. Let me please note that it is unfair to compare the resorts and hotels as each place has its uniqueness, it's trademark food and hospitality. And Carnoustie only supplemented our expectations with...

Just everything from A to Z was perfect during our stay in this resort. The premises are very high quality for India, the gardens are amazing and very well maintained, the private beach is a "postal card". Ayurveda treatments were great, from the massages to the consultations with the doctors. The staff did everything they could and even more to... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Carnoustie Ayurveda & Wellness Resort, situated at the Marari beach close to the Alappuzha backwaters, comprises of 40 luxury villas, a traditional Ayurveda Spa, Two Backwater Suite in Muhamma, One Two Bedroom House Boat and a Sailing Club. The villas are designed to reduce energy and water consumption as well as minimize the use of exhaustible materials. The eco-friendly resort ensures that we use materials such as jute, bamboo, recycled cardboard instead of wood, reprocessed plastic and scrap wood. While at the resort, travellers can take lake/ backwater tours to gaze at the gorgeous paddy fields of Alapphuza, try out the early-morning yoga sessions, unwind at the beach, relax at the spa, enjoy performances by local traditional dancers and Kerala’s range of percussion music, try their hand at night fishing, cycle around villages or sail the backwaters and learn a bit of archery. ... more   less
