“My soul is always in Bethsaida!”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

It is my favourite place in the world. I always enjoy stay here! Location is very good, incredible ocean view, very nice garden, very clean area, the beach is clean and comfortable, as it is isolated, just fishermans somtimes come here to collect a catch. It is nice to look at. The staff is welcoming and friendly. Food is great, real indian vegeterian food. I like the treatment, that they provide, ashave very individual approach to everyone. All the doctors and terapists are hight professionals. My gratitude to all the people from Bethsaida!

Feels like coming home is not only the slogan of Bethsaida Hermitage, it is exactly what you feel when you enter the resort. With its peaceful and heartly atmosphere we enjoyed our stay a lot. Everwhere are beautiful, colourful flowers, butterflies flying around, palms and the comfortable sound of the sea.
The resort is directly located on a nice, quiet beach and lovely created. During swimming in the pool you can see the sea. For me it was always a pleasure to lie on the swimmingpool facing the sea and listening to wonderful music. It felt like holidays in the paradise.
If you have any questions or wishes the staff is always helpful and very kind and friendly.
Also the treatments are fantastic and very good, professional and nice therapists who always take care that you feel well during massages.
We also enjoyed the food a lot. The restaurant and the nice waiter create a wonderful atmosphere and they treat you like you are the only guest.
Service and staff is excellent and always friendly. We enjoyed our stay here very much. It was a great time and we'll come home totally recovered and full of positive energy.

Room Tip: sea-view rooms are better

Amazing place! Great views of the Arabian sea and private beach, amiable staff who give you their full attention, individual and thorough approach to ayurvedic treatment - just a few things off the top of my head that definitely make Bethsaida a great choice as a holiday destination.
Definitely would recommend to all tired and irritated workaholics looking for a beatiful quiet spot to relax and find some peace. Take note though that this is a place for a more meditative relaxation and improving one's health, restless sightseers might find it a bit dull.
However, Kovalam is a short rickshaw ride away, getting to Trivandrum takes about 40 minutes and any other major tourist spot in the region is easily accessible by cab. And when you come back after visiting some tourist attractions it does, indeed, feel like coming home - as the clever slogan of Bethsaida Hermitage suggests.
Again, it is worth a separate mention that, leaving aside the stunning views and great location, Bethsaida's best asset is the people - incredibly warm, welcoming and awesome personnel.
Also, as a first-timer in India I have an impression that Kerala is an amazing spot to begin exploration of this beautiful country, and staying at Bethsaida certainly added to that appreciation. Definitely will revisit!

Room Tip: Rooms on the last two floors (3rd,4th) offer the best views, in my opinion. Also staying a bit highe...

Located in front of the ocean and the beach in a tropical garden this hotel is one of the most beautiful we've ever seen.
We enjoyed typical indian food in a restaurant made from wood with a stunning view on the ocean and Kovalam. Two pools are comfortable and nice. The beach is naturally isolated from other people and there're few foreign people coming there.
We also had Ayurveda massages which is a good way to recover from stress or to treat a big number of medical problems.
Hotel staff was very kind and helpful. Special thank's to Thanku who provided us with precious information about local monuments and places to visit. This is a very interesting region.
I would recommend this hotel for people who would like to relax in a calm place and is willing to visit the south if India.

We enjoyed these Ayurveda holidays so much. Everything from treatment to doctors, from restaurant, food to service, from outside place, room to people, from kindness, help to friendliness, from morning to evening, was a pleasure for us. We thank all wonderful beings there for the great days we have spent in Bethsaida. And we are still dreaming of it and hear the waves of the sea in our dreams. Adalbert and Gertrude, Austria
