On my way to Arya Vaidyasala for treatment I stopped by at Asokam for five nights (Dec 12-17). The non-ac cottage exceeded my expectations. The resident doctor Dr. Altaf impressed me with his simple nature and professional integrity. Pavitran had better massage hands than anything I have experienced during the last ten years for Kerala style massage. Jobish and Paul provided the best caliber of support and care. Seema, Sumitra and Karna did their bits to spoil me. Yes, the sea was serene and the air was clean and everything was so quiet and peaceful.... Something intangible, mystifying and calming about this place! The unassuming Naveen gets a lot of credit for its spiritual richness.
WiFi was not accessible from my cottage, so I had to come to the garden for Internet access. The food from the local restaurant was full of grease and spices and generally unappetizing. From the second day onward Naveen arranged to get their internal home cooked food for me, and I have to say this was one of the best tasting, wholesome food I have ever had. Naveen gave me a tour of their medicine factory which was a good learning experience for me. Naveen and Paul made sure I was comfortably seated in my train to Kochi.
I would return to this place because it is so unpretentious and genuine.
