Six days here during the monsoon season was still very good. Four days of torrential rain yet staff made our stay memorable. Service was excellent and so is the food. Asian and Italian cuisine available at different venues. Dinner on the pier looking back at the island was sensational. This resort is not designed for exercise focus rather honeymooners or maybe those just wanting to relax. Beach is good at high tide but not great at low tide as rocks make entry difficult. There is however short walks, swimming and kayaking. Stayed in the hilltop accommodation and loved it - just like it appears on the website. Spa was very good and is fit in well with the relaxation theme of this resort.

Designed by natural streams, steep cliffs, towering boulders and where no trees are felled, the entire resort borrows from nature its elements to offer an exceptional sense of paradise, freedom from the real world. While serious relaxation is an elusive commodity for many, one can truly succumb to the healing effects JapaMala imparts through its holistic blend of sumptuous gourmet treats, intimacy between man and nature, unique spa experiences and truly unprecedented hospitality.
