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.

Pleasant staff”
The deluxe room that I booked was at best a basic standard for which as a seasoned India traveller I would not normally pay more than £ 5.00 per day . While the staff in general were pleasant the manager was at best disinterested . The photographs showing the resort were a misrepresentation , there were no gardens nor was there a coffee shop or room service . While the menu was small half the items listed were never available and my only regret was that I never saw the kitchen until my last evening nor took a picture of it as it was absolutely filthy, there were actually dirty dishes stacked on the floor after the kitchen was closed for the night . While the masseur knew his profession I was astounded to be given a previously used unwashed loin cloth to put on , needless to say I declined .I was originally booked in for a month but checked out after six days . I STRONGLY suggest that the onsite doctor take drastic action regarding the general hygiene of the establishment

décevant pour un séjour de Noël ”
le cadre,
Mauvaise connexion Wi-Fi, pas de douche chaude même après avoir signaler le pb. Une carte menu de 3 pages avec seulement 2 choix de plat possible, impossible d'avoir une bouteille d'eau fraîche, 3 jours pour récupérer nos quelques vêtements déposés au service laverie. Seul le repas du 25 soir était correct moyennant 1500 roupies par personne.

Hôtel bien situé et agréable”
Tres agréable et convivial. Les repas pris autour de la piscine favorisent la rencontre d'autres voyageurs.
Les chambres situées du côté piscine sont calmes et spacieuses. Il faut donner sa clé le matin pour le nettoyage des chambres et les changements de serviettes, sinon, pas de nettoyage... Le personnel est agréable. Petits déjeuners délicieux, beaucoup de choix.

Très sympa mais un peu éloigné”
calme, piscine
Nous sommes resté 3 jours dans cet hôtel et c'était très bien. Le personnel est très aimable et serviable. Le cadre est sympa avec une plage tranquille juste à côté. La piscine est un petit plus agréable pour se rafraîchir avant le petit déjeuné. Le seul inconvénient est la longue distance pour aller au centre.
