We were 2 families and had visited Kaivalyam in Apr'13 for 3 nights. Had selected this place again based on the reviews seen on TripAdvisor. We had a very good experience and would surely visit again and recommend to people. This place is about a km away from the main road and down hill. You have to rely on the resort's 4x4 for going there if you have a big vehicle. Small cars can manage but you have to be very careful. However, this was not a big deterrent for us as the driver was available all the time.
Place has been conceptualized beautifully. Harish (owner) has designed this extremely well. You can take Yoga lessons in the morning, trek down to the river (helped by resort staff) and have a good relaxing time. Food is vegetarian (suits us perfectly as we are pure veg) and preparation is excellent. We loved all dishes barring a few.
Have suggested Harish to put put mesh on the kitchen door to prevent insects entering (these are galore). Only other suggestion that I can give to Harish is to create a small kids area with slide, swing, etc such that small kids can be occupied. Would highly recommend this place to people.
