The worst Vacation ever!!!
Never ever visited a pool villa so unclean, unmaintained and broken… children had injuries due to the pool tile not properly maintained and broken pool deck. Food was horrible that we purchased local fish had to ask them to try for us. Prawns was served with loads of salt and we were asked to adjust by having it with cucumber. Breakfasts which was complimentary had to be ordered the prior night of it was not dosa. No buffets for breakfast. Pathways had no lights during night and even after several complaints it was not rectified. Staff shortage was noted and no one knew anything about the resort. No consideration was given to senior citizens , leave alone youngsters. Okay There were no life guards on the so called private beach area… the beach chairs were infested with worms and flies due to under- maintenance. We had to buy beach chairs to sit near beach area. When we raised any complaints, right from the staffs to management they were making lame excuses like they just joined or the cook was new etc etc.. Even after repeated requests of keeping the property neat and tidy even before checking in, they hardly looked into the matter. To make things worse, we waited for more than 45 minutes for the breakfast to be served even after confirming the order the night before. Everything felt NOT RIGHT!!!! The only appreciation, I would mention would be that they cooked the fish (sardine) that we bought with our own money.
The best wellness trip
The hotel and the spa are simply amazing. We organized our first girls wellness trip during COVID. The safety, cleanliness of the place made these worries vanish as soon as we entered the resort. Once we were picked up from the airport with snacks waiting for us in the car, the resort was a treat. The staff is super kind and helpful— always serving with a wide smile and great care. The spa, the doctors and therapists are simply amazing. We chose the detox program with attention to existing neck issues ( because of a year of online work). The weight loss results were amazing, and the neck pain is reduced by at least 80%. Dr. Mobi is an expert and knows the best treatment for each individual. There is nothing that has gone wrong in this trip: the overall spacious and luscious resort ; the luxurious food( any foodie would enjoy all of the divine and fresh tastes); the amazing chef and waiters: the room staff ; the doctors and the spa; the yoga and mediation instructors ; the manager/ owner Karl special attention to the details and the guests’ well-being. Anyone who is seeking a safe, luxurious, and healthy rejuvenation wellness trip should come here. Also, the boat ride is just great.
A wonderful resort!
We spend few days in this wonderful resort and we just have one regret: spend more time there!! The resort is so amazing : beautiful garden, nice restaurant, beach very clean, big swimming pool. Yoga courses available. Personnel is also very kind and helpful. Nice place to get some rest.
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 !
