        Peaceful Retreat”

        A few km away from the bustling Kovalam resort lies the Chowara beach - almost deserted and a wonderfully peaceful area. The Ideal Ayurvedic Resort is here with its simple rooms, lovely swimming pool and wonderful environment. Have your general health checked out by the Ayurvedic Doctor in residence and be treated by his capable team. For those not planning on treatments then this hotel will provide an oasis of tranquillity. Book a massage, have a swim or wander down to the almost deserted Chowara beach. There are plenty of tourist shops en route. Or take a trip to one of the many temples in the area, including the temples and museums in Trivandrum. Poovar and it's lush backwaters are available closeby for a boating trip. The Ideal Ayurvedic Resort with its simple rooms and swimming pool has a wonderful restaurant serving Indian, Chinese and European dishes, well cooked and seasoned and nicely presented. It also caters for the needs of those on the Ayurvedic treatment plan. I spent a wonderful and relaxing weekend here and it is to be highly recommended.

        Best Budget Gust House in Chowara Area”

        Close to the magnificent resorts of Somatheeram and Manaltheeram and the beach; lots of great little shops; ayurvedic services

        Comfortable in the pool-side room which is better than the road side block. It has an excellent Panchakarma reputation. It does not offer Yoga and meditation as does Dr Franklin's and the big beach side resorts. It does not smell of mildew as I found when checking out the resort over the road - awful place! This is a quaint family concern and is in a village setting thus not overly quiet. Staff are accomodating. Breakfast was good and plentiful though service a bit Fawlty Towers-ish. I would return to Chowara but not any other place near Trivandrum - Varkala has negotiable Ayurvedic services and thus more affordable and cheap beach side accomodation. Not here in Chowara.

        Clean and cheap”

        Swimming pool, reasonable prices, friendly receptionists

        We booked this at short notice because we really wanted a pool to cool off in, having found the nearby shadeless beaches and huge waves too much for us! The price was great, so can't complain too much, room and bathroom nice, very clean, but the bed was really hard, and that always causes us problems! However, the real let down was the food, as there was so little available, which I can't understand, because there were quite a lot of people there, and most seemed to want to eat, but I imagine that they, like us, ended up getting rickshaws to other places (there was NOWHERE else to eat within walking distance!). A lot of the people there seemed to be on special diets, but we found the food pretty tasteless, the omelettes for breakfast were dried out and tiny, toast wasn't toasted, practically no Indian breakfasts, portions in general were small, and choice was so limited... maybe fine if you don't like spicy food and want to lose weight, but neither of those applied to us, and I just can't believe that in a town (Chowara) with no restaurant, this hotel doesn't employ a decent chef and offer a decent menu, not just for its customers, but also for others! We had a massage, which was fine, but have had better.

        This one's specially for people interested in kerala Ayurvedic treatments and those who want to relax in a peaceful and quite place. You'll mainly find foreigners here. In house restaurant is good. Breakfast is a disappointment here though. For rest of the meals it's good. No TV sets in any of the rooms. Swimming pool well maintained. A bit too far from the beach. Parking available. Excellent Staff is the plus point here. They'll make sure you are having a good time. Very cooperative and friendly esp. Mr. Shameir.
