Set some distance away from town and the airport, this is a tranquil five star resort and spa where time seems to stand still. Located near still backwaters, our cottage was discreetly tucked away amongst the foliage and palms. The rooms are well appointed and tastefully decorated. Large timber beams and wooden shutters completed the resort feel to the place.
Room service does take a while due to the distances involved but is courteous as is indeed the entire staff.
The beach isn’t much to rave about being rocky and small, but the backwaters are worth a boat ride. Our tranquil boat ride at dusk was interrupted by the incongruous ringing of the boatman’s mobile phone but that’s part of the experience we thought.
The restaurants specialise in Kerala curries and the breakfast is a lavish spread on the poolside with a variety on offer, including the local cuisine.
The infinity pool is imposing and grand. The fitness centre was average but the spa and massages something to die for. As the masseur‘s skills lulled one into a stupor one could only wish for more.
