Thapovan was our first stop for our 18 day trip to Kerala. We had 3 days here and it was just what the (Ayurvedic) doctor ordered. Set in a stunningly natural location at the end of a beach the coconut grove is a shady paradise close to the busy beach town of Kovalam but well enough away from the centre to be perfectly relaxing. We had Ayurvedic massage and treatments every day which put us on the Indian pace of life immediately. If you haven't had this type of massage before then this is the place to try it.
We booked rather last minute and being over Christmas and Boxing Day we didn't get the best rate possible but we still felt it was good value. The food was good overall (though not nearly as good as we found elsewhere) and the staff were very pleasant, helpful and good natured. The icing on the cake was the free violin concert by some amazing classical Indian musicians on Christmas Day. We weren't sure what to expect but we were totally blown away! At 90 minutes it was a full on concert and the standard was extremely high, this was no hotel band.....I just need to find out what their names are!
Great memories, we will be back.
