I came back last Saturday after staying at this resort with my sister for 8 days. It was everything we hoped for and more. Airport transfer well arranged, 1,5 or almost 2 hours to the hotel, depending on the arrival time. The resort is spacious, well kept, beautifull gardens, the villas are all well located and are clean and comfortable. As there are only 37 villas and most people have treatments of 2 hours every day, it never is crowded, not at the buffet, not at the beach or pool. I have never seen more than 6 people at the pool. The beach is really deserted, even as a woman alone you can lay in your bikini without feeling watched by local men the whole time. My sister is now staying at Cherai Beach and she is going to leave as it is impossible to lay at the beach there. The staff is amazing, friendly, professional and they just seem to be informed about you during your stay. The food was vegetarian buffet for ayurveda guests but you could ask for fish or chicken if you have the doctors ok. There where more than 20 different dishes every breakfast, lunch and dinner and all very tastefull. There are yoga and meditation classes, very basic but accessible for all levels I guess. The doctors are doing a good job with consults each day before the treatments. Treatments where very relaxing. This was the first time we had Ayurvedic treatments so I can not tell if this is the right place if you have serious health issues but all guests just seem very happy here. Even the Russians where friendly and polite. Most guests where from Germany, Switserland and Austria but we are Dutch and there where French, Italians and Russians as well. We did a couple of excursions, dont go for the backwater excursion they offer as it was just a boat trip over the small rivers where the people dump all their rubbish and dead animals. Thrissur good for shopping, go to the silk shops for some nice tipical outfits. We did not see one tourist outside the resort. I am very happy I stayed here and can not think of one reason why you will not be absolutely satisfied here.
