Peaceful, calm & economic hotel

Posted 5 May, 2014

Ideal Ayurvedic resort is not located near Kovalam beach, but near Chowara beach which is nearly 4 km from Kovalam beach & nearly 16 km from Trivandrum city. Ideal Ayurvedic resort is not some normal kind of hotel or resort. It is an ayurvedic resort which means you will not get many of the features available in hotels like television, telephone, prompt room service etc It is an ayurvedic resort as the name suggests. Location I have already mentioned. You can reach Kovalam by bus or by hiring an auto-rickshaw. Auto fare is Rs. 200 one way for Kovalam & Rs. 400 one-way for Trivandrum city. The resort is built more like a home & one really gets the feeling of being at home. Manager Shamir was more than willing to help us on any matter, be it about our sightseeing purpose or check-in check-out. We checked-out at 04:00 am in the morning as we had our flight at 05:30 am; manager woke up at that time to see-off us. Food is one great attraction of this place. Very simple food but prepared well. Food was served with great care & delicacy. But yes I would say one thing that I think they are understaffed. Only one person takes the order, himself cooks the food & serves as well. This makes one wait for food for quite a long time Room was spacious with a double bed, one shelf cum cupboard, one table-chair & one hanger-stand. Neat & clean, good housekeeping. We didn't had time for the ayurvedic massages, but that definitely is a great attraction of the place. Chowara beach is at a walking distance of 15 min. Chowara beach is the most peaceful beach I have visited so far. But the waves here are a bit ferocious & so I shall advice those friends who don't know swimming please avoid going to the water here instead go for Kovalam beach where sea is relatively flat & calm There are no restaurants nearby, you either have to go to Kovalam beach(4km - north) or Poovar beach(8km - south approx. ). Finally I will say to chose this resort if you want spend some time in calmness & with books because the resort has a good collection of books. Also there is free WiFi available on request so whenever you feel cut-out of the world you can get connected in an instant .

Excellent staff, average food

Posted 5 Oct, 2013

The first thing that I noticed about this place was its calm and relaxed atmosphere. The place is calm, serene and far way from the rush of the city life. The staff members are an excellent team and with their manager they ensured that I had everything I wanted. Their ayurvedic massages are out of this world and they add a touch of Kerala to it. The massages are one thing that has to be experienced if you are in Kerala. The food is average. It is definitely not worth the price that they charge, but its no doubt healthy. I had a great time at the resort relaxing myself.
