From reception to kitchen staff to treatment ladies... people were so nice!!! The place is so magnificent and what makes this place so special is definitely people who work there. Founded by a father of the wife who run this place, now managed by the husband who is an ayurvedic doctor. The doctor is so thoughtful and passionate about what he does... I really had a very special time there. I think the doctor's passion and dedication influence the way all the staffs work there. Treatment ladies are very well trained and work extremely hard and very attentive to my needs. Foods are sourced by the doctor's father everyday, prepared by long family friend lady, served by a very nice guy who has been there for two years.
There was a medical consultation everyday and he really cared about my well being and my goal. The treatments are at least twice daily and mostly conducted by two ladies at a time... which is very rare.
Any arrangement is possible by the reception lady and other front office staffs. My request to go on backwater in the morning was made possible by hiring a private boat guy who is a family friend of theirs, accompanied by the founder of the place (the father of the wife who runs the place) We got a personal guided tour of backwater by the father along with specially packed breakfast for the trip. My three ocklock departure was escorted by two front office staffs who especially got up at 3 in the morning and dressed just to send my luggage off. They saw me off until my car drove off from the property. Really, speechlessly nice and heart warming.
The accommodation itself is very basic and yoga classes are nothing so special but experience was so magnificent. there are many who are regulars and keep coming back every year. There are many who also come with the real symptoms to be treated in ayurvedic methods as the doctor is a real medical professional.
Highly recommended who is looking for authentic treatment and looking for laid back, local retreat. there is no other place like it!!
PS Supposedly, there are opening up #2 property in years time as the founder's son is also getting an ayurvedic medical degree in a year time. Stay tuned!!
