Our usual expectations of cleanliness, tidiness and good maintenance were met and exceeded. The location is both a surprise and delight. We enjoyed a picture book view of Coconut palms and the beach below. Most impressive... More

I had not realised it was an Ayurvedic treatment centre when I booked, but the chef was very helpful in providing a wide choice of food through extensive menu. 95% of people staying were from Germany and no other English people present, I did have a couple of conversations...

Two weeks stay at Nikki's Nest which was much enjoyed. The Ayurvedic treatment was excellent and many of the guests were repeat clients - which speaks highly of the resort.
