This is my favourite place in the whole world as it is home away from home with a ready made family 😊 I have been to Ideal 2 years in a row and the highlight of my stay is doing yoga with the wonderful, kindest, grateful Mr Vishnu. I have yoga everyday with Vishnu and every morning he meets me...

Three treatments everyday with Kavitha and daily consultations with Dr. Sibi provided the best possbile care! The staff felt like family that I didn't want to leave! Ideal is the type of resort where one can comfortably have their privacy or it is easy to meet other guests - who are interesting and genuine.

I travelled solo to Ideal and was warmly welcomed by Shamer, the manager. It was lovely to feel so welcome after a long journey. I was given a choice of two rooms, which I thought was nice. The rooms are basic but have everything you need. There is no aircon but the fan works well. Drinking water is always readily...

Food was excellent. They even helped us in planning our tour to South India. The staff was simply awesome; especially the pool side persons. The environment in...

I have traveled reasonably across the country. I can confidently say that 5 star hotels can learn a few things from this resort. This is a small, niche resort situated 5 mins away from the beautiful Chowara beach and 7 kms away from Kovalam beach. First, I would like to specially mention the name of Shameer who is the hotel's...

I was there last year and liked it very much.. They really tried to do a very good ayuvedic treatment. So for example they made their oil by themselves and also the treatment was longer then in the more expensive resorts around. Actually a friend of mine who was in a resort nearby paid double and the treatment was not...

We enjoyed our stay very much and the treatments were very good. All the staff were most helpful & happy in their good work and did their utmost to ensure your needs were catered for.

We booked 2 AC rooms facing the pool, the rooms were clean with big shower, simple but nice. The staff is also very nice. We were the only ones not there for the Ayurvedic doctor and treatment, which we heard were very good. More old guest, no backpackers.. We only booked it for the pool which was disappointing due to...
