    ‘Very relaxed holiday and best care’ Translated by Google

    The holiday was overall very relaxing and you could completely switch off. show more

    • Hotel in general
      The hotel is very small, but nice. This allows you to get in touch with the other guests quickly. There are mostly Germans in the hotel. The rooms are nicely decorated and very clean. If something is missing, you get help immediately. The complex is located near the beach, but the low season you can not swim due to strong currents. On the main street there are many small shops. The people encounter an extremely friendly and helpful.
    • Service and hospitality
      The service is great. Everyone is always ready to fulfill every wish and help wherever they can.
    • Cuisine
      The food is very different than it is used to us and indescribably delicious. The composition is partly indefinable, but great. Everything is freshly prepared and as the choice is not that big, try everything too.
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      The area is very nice, the pool is a good size and there is enough pool around it. Generally, the complex is beautifully landscaped, there are many coconut palms. The area with the applications is pleasant. The table is not too hard, there are also padded documents. The bath is nice to lie down.
    • Treatments and programmes
      The Ayurvedic diet is excellent, the coordinated medicine is ok, but sometimes a bit bitter. The conversation with the doctor takes place every 2 days, so the treatment can be customized and changed very individually. I really enjoyed the one-hour mix of yoga and meditation. It is also very understandable for beginners and easy to implement. The oil massages are different than you may know from Thai massages ago. It works with much less pressure and completely different techniques are used. The oil is rather rubbed and it is used extensively. Depending on the type of treatment you should definitely wear a pair of massage pants or use old pants, because you can not get the oil and the color out of the laundry. Except for the massages everything was very good. The lot of oil and the kind of massages was not quite mine now.
