we loved the place, all the staff were fantastic, only problem was the wifi only worked in the lobby and even then it was poor. The rooms were large and very clean with great sea views, but the bathrooms need upgrading

The masseurs were very good. The place itself is very quiet and will...

Dear Mr.Ganesh, We are surprised at this review since the hotel does not serve 5-7 Course meals. The resort is an full Ayurveda hotel. The Hotel has gone through continuous refurbishments over a period of ten years. Lastly as resort which caters to European only guest I am surprised how you mange to write the above review.
