The hotel has two premises: the main one where administration, dining area and Ayurvedic treatments take place and another about 1/2km away with a swimming pool. Our room, located further away, was simply blissful: very quiet, beautiful view of the sea, nicely furnished. Breakfast was a nice surprise and it usually consisted of fresh fruit, yoghurt, omelet, and several Keralan dishes. All staff were exceptionally friendly and accommodating. Despite smoldering heat during the day the lack of AC wasn't much of an inconvenience and the ceiling fan combined with cool showers proved to be enough to keep us comfortable. We also enjoyed strolling (about 20min walk) to the Cliff for other meals, yoga and surfing; the supermarket and fruit stalls were about the same distance towards the city.
On the downside, wifi was only available at the reception area. For a $65/night room a kettle would have been truly indispensable. Pillows were a bit too big for me, causing a few sleepless nights and a sore neck until I finally ditched the pillow altogether. We initially stayed in a cheaper room but found it unbearable: overlooking the main "road" we were awoken early by staff and vehicles. It also didn't have a proper shower, but instead a bucket in which to collect water to wash yourself with. None of such in an upgraded room, however.
