Carnoustie is a lovely place to relax and unwind, and really get away from it all. The spa and ayurvedic treatments are very good (although, you will pay close to western prices), the food is excellent, and the staff are so sweet and helpful. The private villas are lovely and private, and we really enjoying the coconut grove / beach...

Had a wonderful holiday at Carnoustie resort with a friend as we needed to destress. We took a package which included airport transfers, ayurvedic treatments, all meals (we chose vegetarian ayurvedic meals but there is a wide choice) and boat trip. Morning yoga with visiting guru and sunset yoga with the resident guru were inspiring and highlights of the day....

It's complicated to get there, it's far from everything and it's pricy... but once you're there, you see it's more than worth! We stayed there for five days and enjoyed it to the fullest... the paradisiac beach, the excellent restaurant and spa as well as the lovely villas.

Carnoustie offers highly luxurious villas nested in a tropical garden next to a pristine beach. Even the "basic" Akund villas offer a superior level of comfort, while the higher tiers boast their own private pool. Due to the low number of guests, the entire resort is bathed in a quiet relaxing atmosphere with highly attentive staff. Excellent restaurant. We got...

Visited this place for a weekend getaway from Cochin. It was the ideal hideaway to relax and unwind. Super luxurious, well appointed and spacious villas. I stayed in one with a private pool which was heavenly. Food is fresh and delicious. Spa very good too. Must mention that one of the spa massage spa I took was slightly mechanical but...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Carnoustie Ayurveda & Wellness Resort, situated at the Marari beach close to the Alappuzha backwaters, comprises of 40 luxury villas, a traditional Ayurveda Spa, Two Backwater Suite in Muhamma, One Two Bedroom House Boat and a Sailing Club. The villas are designed to reduce energy and water consumption as well as minimize the use of exhaustible materials. The eco-friendly resort ensures that we use materials such as jute, bamboo, recycled cardboard instead of wood, reprocessed plastic and scrap wood. While at the resort, travellers can take lake/ backwater tours to gaze at the gorgeous paddy fields of Alapphuza, try out the early-morning yoga sessions, unwind at the beach, relax at the spa, enjoy performances by local traditional dancers and Kerala’s range of percussion music, try their hand at night fishing, cycle around villages or sail the backwaters and learn a bit of archery. ... more   less
