Not worth the dollars
Not worth the almost $80 a night charge for a room that's old and mouldy with no air conditioning in the heat of Kerala. Much better options available elsewhere in this town for the same price and even less where you can find better conditions with professional and courteous staff.

Ayurvedic Centre on cliff top with access to beach
I stayed here for the first 10 days in December 2015. The resort was a bit difficult to find in amongst a sparse neighbourhood that was quiet. I did not take the Ayurvedic Package but had booked room with breakfast only. I stayed in Room 20 quite close to the reception area. The room was a basic room and being on ground floor attracted a lot of creepy crawlies which was my only concern and criticism. The building is surrounded by lush greenery and trees and plants which combined with frequent rain (rained most of the time I was there) lends itself to increased appearances from mosquitoes and other insects which could interfere with enjoyment. The eating area is also outside (shack type setting) which again attracts crows etc but it is something one gets accustomed to. I think the hotel could do more in terms of making it pest free, only requires a small amount of effort and minor repairs which could make a big difference though. Had to put up with a few electricity cuts during stay but the benefit of being in a room near the reception area is that you get wifi and internet access which is not available in other parts of the resort. The resort is small with limited rooms so there can be a nice family type feel and safe environment. The food was good and cheap and chefs were very accommodating in cooking dishes to your requirements. All /kitchen staff and waiters were most pleasant. The resident doctors also very pleasant and had always had time to talk. Had a good holiday!

Rustic, Chilled and Friendly
I stayed in the older building which is more rustic than the new place along the road. I was solo in a double room, fan, no a/c, it was comfortable, quiet and clean, although it would be cosy for two people and there's little storeage area for clothes. I loved the chilled location, cliff-top overlooking the Arabian Sea, with access by steps to quiet beaches. Great food, friendly service. I didn't partake in the yoga or treatment as I was just there for 4 days. Its just a 20 minute walk (or cheap tuk-tuk)to the busier beach and restaurants in the North Cliff town

Very nice place to stay with great service, food and surroundings. The personnel was very attentive. Rooms are not particularly luxurious or modern, but have everything you need. Though a little too expensive if compared to other places nearby with similar properties. Anyway enjoyed my stay a lot!
