A beautiful esquisite serene place in a 130 year old carved wooden kerelan home is a gem and you will not find another like it. The attention, personal service and elegance here is unforgettable. The feeling of a homestay but with luxurious perks abound. Beautiful touches like fresh flowers from the surrounding gardens plucked daily and placed inside and outside in vases. Very accomodating host will help organize anything that interests you. Sound of nearby ocean waves crashing against the cliff that grace the whole coastline is breathtaking and lulls you gently to sleep. Food is expertly served and prepared especially for you by candlelight in the garden. Alongside a larger very overpriced resort this is the one that should be in the guidebook. You can take advantage of the resorts facilities but will return each time to Thulsi realizing you are staying in a far superior secret world. If you are patient and inquisitive the owner will share with you the history and personal connection of the place and its special unique story will unravel itself. Lots of great things to do in area such as visiting the famous handloom village in
Balaramapuram, and the Ayurvastra Ayurvedic Clothing Cooperative. Arrange for bikes and take a bike up to Kovalam stppoming to visit local carvers along the way. Pop into Trivandrum to visit the Palace Museum. Go for a swim in the beautiful Arabian Sea (but watch the current). Also great rooftop place to do Yoga and they will lend you a mat. And lastly relax and enjoy the absolute relaxation of this spot.
