This resort is located 8kms south of Kovalam and is probably one of the few resorts which offer a private beach experience in Kovalam. My wife had booked a Heritage Premium room, which was a luxurious and set in a traditional Kerala wooden houses. Our room enjoyed panoramic views of the sea and had a sit out with planter's chairs from where we drank in the views of the sea.
One of the highlights of our stay was the spa. They offer traditional Ayurvedic therapies as well as international therapies. Even the restaurant - Cafe Samsara takes care of your wellness diet, which can be congruent to the therapies you opt for! The chef at Cafe Samsara, Chef Prakash is really good and interacts with guests, which felt really nice. The restaurant is located at the edge of the cliff and hence offers splendid views.
The resort also has an infinity pool, again overlooking the sea. We also enjoyed the private beach, which needs a little effort climbing down, but was worth it. The beach is skirted by rocky outcrops and palm groves which actually make it quite private. One of the most unique thing I found here was the yoga pavilion at the edge of the cliff. One can opt for yoga lessons, but I was just happy to meditate on the pavilion with the sound of waves splashing on the rocks below me.
The service is absolutely wonderful and the staff is warm and very friendly
