Kaivalayam Ayurveda Retreat Reviews
I took me almost an year to put together in words about this absolutely marvelous place.. Everything is Precision perfect about this retreat and whole heartedly managed by Mr. Harish and his team. Personal recommendation for everyone planning for a holiday in Munnar with Family and for sure the Kaivalyam will remain in your memory for long. * If you have a knee problem avoid Tree house. * Plan to spend atleast 3 days. * Lot of board games available ensure that you spend quality time with your Kids.
This place was beautiful, peaceful and magical. There was plenty to keep us busy from yoga, meditation, walks, tea tasting and more yoga. The host and all the helpers are so kind friendly and do everything to ensure you have the best stay. The food was delicious. The yoga classes are varied and fantastic. We really enjoyed the Ayurvedic treatments. We will definitely be staying again! Anjnee and Usha
this review is on behalf of our family friend whom we had recommended after our wonderful experience when we visited in june 2019 they visited as a family and a wonderful stay and they were all praises for the wonderful services provided by this small but superb family run resort with personalized attention to detail cottages are on the side of the tea estate with trees all around. So for a change we were woken by the tweets of birds instead of our mobile alarm. rooms were very spacious and well appointed and bathrooms modern and super clean food was absolutely homely and very reasonably priced the complementary spice plantation tour was very informative and the guide explained everything in detail. Mr Harish managed the booking efficiently with clear communications. a very memorable stay and would definitely look forward to staying again Ms Anuradha Bhatt
Absolutely loved this resort, from the kind, gentle couple that own it, to the amazingly clean and comfortable room, to the beautiful grounds. Everything. Loved sitting on the veranda watching giant squirrels leaping around in the trees. And especially loved the deliciously healthy food we had there. Could not fault it in any way. It’s a place that is good for the soul.
I stayed here on a wellness package and received 90 minutes of Ayurvedic treatments every day after consulting with the Ayurvedic doctor . I would highly recommend this package . The treatments are high quality and the Spa facilities are excellent . Add to this the great service , hospitable staff and the marvellous food cooked to order and you have a winner . In addition id recommend the spice plantation walk , tea tasting , yoga and the cookery demonstration . All included . My time flew by . I wish id stayed for longer . Highly recommended.
