We travelled for our valentine's with our 2 year old daughter. The hospitality is amazing. Everyone is so welcoming and accommodating. We just loved our stay so much. We booked the Malika pool villa and it was absolutely perfect. The food is also good, however due to covid situation there wasn't a buffet system which we surely missed. However, it was surely a relaxing stay and a very good peaceful property to visit.
High end wellness in South Kerala
This is a true love of labour from the owner ! The property is beautifully designed and despite being shut down for 10 months due to the Covid lockdowns , time and money has been spent on maintenance of all areas of this 28 villa wellness resort . The villas are luxe , we stayed in the pool villas . Large and comfortable with KAMA Ayurveda toiletries , plush towels and tea/coffee with kettle &fresh fruit replenished daily . Remarkable bamboo structures in the dining area and library / business center , is architecturally brilliant ! Large tall bamboo brought in from Indonesia is visually stunning and extraordinary in India ! The villa’s all have high steeple ceiling with thatched roofs - all giving an ambience of both beauty and calmness . The Ayurveda spa is well designed and offers both short & long term treatments . We had daily massages from Covid tested therapists and we had to bring recent Covid test reports which they had to check to allow us into the spa area . I felt safe here . The therapists are well trained and I would like to mention Anju who worked on me during my stay . The chef made us delicious Kerala fish curry , dry masala prawns , hot appams , pineapple curry and Karimeen until we couldn’t eat anymore ! However this is only because we were not on any Ayurveda treatment plan . Otherwise it’s only pure healthy vegetarian food as prescribed by the physician! Note : NO ALCOHOL IS SERVED HERE . This is an AYURVEDIC WELLNESS Center not a family fun resort !!! The staff are all “live in “ and follow strict Covid protocols. The beach is the most private ( Indian beaches by law are not private ) and cleanest of all the resorts in the area . It’s a small stretch and wonderful sunsets as the fishermen bring their tiny boats in . The sous chef and the F&B guys , the Room Manager Sudheep and other support team were always available and ready to make our stay as pleasant as possible . The Carnoustie boat that takes guests on a two hour backwater ride is the best boat in the area ! Large and with aircons they serve a nice afternoon tea service on the ride. Loved this place and will return !
Genuine review from a family visited after lockdown.
We are really thankful to the entire staff of carnoustie. Would like to start from day one, quite common where resort send car for airport transfer. But here with, there was separate car for luggage to make sure we have a comfortable ride. Not only that sandwiches, fruits and water alongwith that. Coming to beautiful resort, beauty, greenery, their clean beach, always on their toes housekeeping staff, never saying no for anything thats how well trained and master chefs in the restaurant. These ayurveda and wellness beauty has so much of minimalistic appreciable stuffs example their soap holder is also man made from leaves. Not using plastic in any sense. Much more things to appreciate. Trust me do visit and its one of the best resort have ever been to. Attaching the last picture where we leaving with smiling faces after a memorable experience
This resort makes you feel special from the time you reach there. Perfectly run, service levels here are immaculate. This is a place to rejuvenate away from all the stresses of daily life but it has a strong wifi so u can stay connected if required. Food here is fabulous and the treatments superb. A must visit
Amazing place to stay out of busy city life
This place was recommended by my wife and I had no idea about the place and had not seen any pics before reaching the property! But truly at first glance, it stood up to my expectations. The staff ,right from the Chauffeur to the Manager and owner were so humble and welcoming. The property , rooms , pool and lush greenery is a delight to watch. Private beach is just the right place to see the Sunset with the fishermen returning with catch of the day. We thoroughly enjoyed the untouched beach and cleanliness around. The food in the restaurant was amazing and the staff and chef ensured that our taste buds were always taken care of. We felt a touch of belongingness from the staff with respect to any demand or request made by us. The rooms as spacious and clean , washrooms were well maintained and well ventilated. Overall , a lush green space with excellent blend of hospitality and services. Not to forget the amazing House Boat ride and Meals on-board was a wonderful experience. Kudos to the owner And the staff for making it a memorable stay for us. Definitely longing to visit this place again soon!
