This is not a 5 star hotel/ resort. It is more like a 3 or 4 star hotel with a great ayurveda spa.
For starters: they say there are 3 restauarants. Not true there is 1, so you end up eating the same food every day! They say there is a bar. Not true, no liquor licence!
The beach foto has been fotoshopped. The beach is littered with dead fallen down trees no one is bothered to remove.
The beds are terribly hard, they look thick but it is actually two bad matresses stacked atop each other. Defintely not a 5 star hotel/ resort! And that with rooms starting at $ 368 a night!!! For a 3/ 4 star hotel!!!?? Not right.
Having said all this : the ayurveda spa is great! The staff are at the hotel are all very sweet and helpful! The grounds are beatiful. Sure youget your own villa, but it is still overpriced. Great laundry service also though!
Ohw the so called pool villas have a small plunge pool, true but the lights in it do not work at night.
A 5 star beach resort at 325$ a night must have a beach restaurant. Carnoustie does not!
So if they were fair they would call it a 3/4 star resort/ hotel and honestly state thatthere is 1 and only 1 restaurant and no bar. No way would anyone in there right mind pay $ 368 and up a night.$ 550 and up for a pool villa. As soon as they have real nice 5 star beds( not two matresses pilled up), 3 restaurants and a bar and a beach restaurant then it will be a great 5 star resort!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Carnoustie Ayurveda & Wellness Resort, situated at the Marari beach close to the Alappuzha backwaters, comprises of 40 luxury villas, a traditional Ayurveda Spa, Two Backwater Suite in Muhamma, One Two Bedroom House Boat and a Sailing Club. The villas are designed to reduce energy and water consumption as well as minimize the use of exhaustible materials. The eco-friendly resort ensures that we use materials such as jute, bamboo, recycled cardboard instead of wood, reprocessed plastic and scrap wood. While at the resort, travellers can take lake/ backwater tours to gaze at the gorgeous paddy fields of Alapphuza, try out the early-morning yoga sessions, unwind at the beach, relax at the spa, enjoy performances by local traditional dancers and Kerala’s range of percussion music, try their hand at night fishing, cycle around villages or sail the backwaters and learn a bit of archery. ... more less
