I stayed at the Silent Valley for 14 days in August and had the Ayurvedic treatment at Panchagini was excellent. You could feel Kerala in it. Silent Valley is located near the temple at the South cliff. The place is very quite and peaceful. Dr. Ajikumar and his staff are very friendly and helpful. And their massage was very relaxing. One thing you all should keep in your mind that most of the resorts in Kerala are for relaxing and pampering with Ayurveda, yoga and meditation. Its not the place for disco or any other related things.. Don't expect too much. So before you book find out everything you need.I would go back again and my friends also have been there after my recommendation and they had a great time in Varkala.
