This one thing was really a big downer....

I stayed at the Ideal Ayurvedic Resort for 12 days over the Christmas – New Year period in 2014-15. At first, I was a little unsure of what to think of the resort. However, as I settled in, my holiday transformed into a quite a moving experience. As with many things in life, your attitude determines your experience. Sure there...

Resort surroundings is really good and peaceful. But rooms are average. Clean but no tv, wifi is available. We only had two nights stay with a plan to see the main attractions in the city. It would be recommended to stay near kovalam or inside city if your are planning to see only main attractions. Main problem we faced was...
