A gorgeous and peaceful retreat
Posted Apr 6, 2016
This is a very special place, tranquil, clean and safe. But don't go expecting Western standards of luxury -- what you are paying for is an unrivalled position overlooking the Arabian Sea, the lush and well-kept grounds, authentic Keralan architecture, and a friendly staff. Do book one of the Heritage premium cottages as near to the sea as possible, and immerse yourself in this green paradise. A week-long stay taking advantage of the (rather expensive) Ayurvedic therapies would be an ideal way to unwind after a wider-ranging tour of India, or for a self-indulgent break. You have everything you need on-site, so you don't have to brave Trivandrum or Kovalam (neither worth it). The Indian dishes in the cafe are delicious and good value; the boutique has some nice things, well priced especially with the generous discount offered. Enjoy!
