    ‘Quiet location, all super friendly, eat fantastically and massages pleasant’ Translated by Google

    I arrived there in the evening, was greeted with fish and had a meeting with the doctor. The rooms are very nice, every day comes the room service. The massages are deep and are carried out on a typical wooden bench with oil that the mother of the doctor makes herself. I got various massages, head massage, oil casting, full body massage, also a mud application for cleaning and also a Käuteranwendung. Finally, I got two oil baths, which were very pleasant. There was different vegetarian food every day, which was awesome. For breakfast there was every morning fruit and fresh squeezed juice. Every morning there was also a green juice from curry leaves for the start of the day and in the evening a green juice, so you can sleep well. Yoga mixed with meditation was always kept by the doctor for an hour, which was very relaxing. This is a very relaxed yoga. The trip to the backwaters was also good and everything was well explained, the trip to Thivanarurum could not take place because it was a temple festival at the same time. I feel very refreshed after the week and could enjoy the peace very much and I traveled back very relaxed. show more

    • Hotel in general
      Lobby and reception is at the same time restaurant / food area and everything open with great view. The complex is nicely decorated, so that the eye always has a pleased look. On cleanliness is very respected. The rooms are very spacious and lovingly furnished. The sunset is great too. The swimming pool is nice and the loungers too. The floor is no longer the newest and must be renovated. The location is very quiet and around there is not much.
    • Service and hospitality
      All very friendly and try to fulfill every wish, remember also what you had and like. Very helpful, dedicated and also like to explain.
    • Cuisine
      The cook cooks traditional and very spicy, which just tastes great. If you wish, he likes to go out and explain how he cooked :) always in small bowls typically presented.
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      Pool could be a bit cleaner and the floor redone. This is superimposed by the great location. The massages are traditionally performed and you can relax well.
    • Treatments and programmes
      Detox and hassle free, the food was great and I feel very comfortable with it, I am very well rested after a week. The doctor has very good applications and always a tip for questions or special applications.

    ‘Holidays in paradise’ Translated by Google

    The hotel was beautiful and very well maintained. Everything was done, to make me a nice stay. The food was very tasty and was prepared for me without milk products and gluten-free, since I can not eat this. It was a very quiet ambiance in the complex as it is located on a hill, off the road. The Ayurveda treatments were also very good and I lost a few kilos. The calm, the view, the room and the service were unique. show more

    • Hotel in general
      Very nice location and very well maintained. Everywhere the plant was adorned with flowers and statues. The view from the lobby and the pool were breathtaking.
    • Service and hospitality
      I have never experienced such an attentive service as here. The guest was really king. The commitment was very high, to enable everything possible. The offered excursions were very nice.
    • Cuisine
      Very delicious food, which was adapted to the treatment and my eating habits. Since I can not eat dairy products and gluten, I asked to leave them out. This was not a problem at all and I could always vote with the cook if I wanted something different. There was also a lot of fresh fruit.
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      The pool was beautiful and well maintained. There were sunbeds and freischwebend towels by the pool. The spa area was also very nice.
    • Treatments and programmes
      I had at least two hours of program per day, sometimes even three. I could also make suggestions that were taken into account. Since I am a yog teacher myself, I did yoga for myself and did not participate in the yoga of the hotel. I lost several pounds through the treatments. By the rest on the grounds and the location on the hill, I could relax very well.
