“Good, Green, Clean, Bit Expensive”
Reviewed 14 January 2013

As the name suggests the hotel theme was ayurvedic. Based remotely, the hotel ambiance was good. Nice gardening, tress everywhere, outdoor (tennis clay court-OK)and indoor games facilities(carrom, etc). I had opted for a standard room. The room and bathroom both were clean; but both were just too small, but never mind we were just 2 of us. I was surprised there was no TV and although they had put a note that they would provide one on request, they couldn't do so since there was some connection problem.
Its a pure veg hotel and alcoholic drinks are not allowed. The food was hygienic but I think the buffet dinner was just too expensive. I had to pay Rs 400+14% tax for the dinner which I felt was not worth.
Overall I suggest you book a deluxe room and enjoy your meals outside. The massages were paid and a bit expensive, but there is no harm in trying out one.

Thank you for your feedback. Happy to hear that you had a wonderful stay with us. We look forward to serve you again. We provide partially organic food, getting organic ingredients is a challenge. As it is a special diet planned by our Ayurvedic Consultants, the varieties are minimal, especially it is recommended to have a light diet during dinner. Benefit of enjoying your holidays at IVAC is; we even take care of your health. In one destination you can have your health and holidays together.

As a back up plan, I booked this hotel at the last minute and stayed a night here with my family. To my surprise, I found this hotel far better than my usual stay (Aishwarya Residency) for the service offered for he same price. Let me say this first, I prefer a silent and peaceful stay rather a hectic and busy.
Check in and check out was very fast. Standard rooms are ok and the bathrooms might look very small for Indians (though it is very well usage of each inch space). However, as for as my knowledge after experiencing many European hotels, this is acceptable and very descent.
Hotel has a very large area for spending nice evening or early morning including swimming pool. Be careful with the honey bees and the wasps, my 3 year old son while playing "checkers" got a wasp bite.
I like the small library, which has some spiritual and religious collections including few books in French, Danish and other languages too.
Overall its a nice place to stay and I advise to spend at least couple of days to have a peaceful time.
Last tip: Hotel is far from the city under the foothill of goddess Chamundi, so you need to have a own vehicle or rent a taxi.

IVAC offered us a very peaceful stay away from the mad rush of city life. It was an excellent, detoxifying, nourishing stay. The food was vegetarian - homegrown and healthy. We stayed for 2 days and really felt refreshed even though the regular aspects --- TV, loud music and non veg food was not available. The ayurvedic treatments were fantastic. The staff was very courteous and helpful. Its a great place to stay if your idea is that of relaxation.

I am travelling to India since 30yrs, I keep coming back to Ayur Vedic Treatments. In Indus Valley I found most traditional Ayurveda. Treatments are excellent. They don`t miss any effort to treat you exclusively. Food is very good, vegetarian an d niceley cooked. I was there for 3 weeks and did not miss anything. I am living in a cottage originally built and I enjoyed it ery much, very comfortable, especially they are all standing with Vastu.
I can highly recommend this place to undertake Ayurveda Treatments.

Room Tip: The Cottagees are all individuelly, and very nicely.

It can be sound better if it can be called as a Hospital not a hotel. Rooms are very small just like a size of a bed. Wall is very badly painted. Bathroom is so small to adjust. Lunch and breakfast was good but it's so so expensive. Far from city nearly 7 Km. So, you have to hire a car to visit Mysore belongings. No Auto can understand the location or even does not know the hotel name. Environment is very good. But it is more suitable to patients. Everything is very costly here.If you are carrying a good health and not interested in yoga or Ayurveda then please don't waste your money here.
