Villa Akasa was just what I needed! I was looking for a relaxed, meditative holiday in Thailand and Indonesia and found this one just a plane ride away from me!! I spent the most delightful 4 days there. The villa has four great cottages, I was lucky to get the one with the an open bathroom. To shower underneath the stars and the setting moon is an experience to savour!
Shama is an extra ordinary host. My routine each morning was to walk to the beach at 6, mediate, bounce about in the waves before the sun came out and head back. The beach is just a 5 minute walk away, paved with coconut palms and Varkala’s beautiful cliffs. The beach on this side is quiet and away from the jostling crowds.
I was greeted each morning with home baked bread with basil (grown in the backyard), a juicy omelette and a fresh glass of carrot juice that I won't forget in a lilfetime!!
I ate most of my meals at the Villa prepared by Laksmi, who made the yummiest Kerala fish curry (the food is not overtly spicy as it toned down to suit most palettes).
There are several Ayurvedic massage places a walk away from the Villa but none of them note worthy!
If you are looking for a quiet place to unwind, read and be left to yourself this is the perfect heaven! Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
