Three treatments everyday with Kavitha and daily consultations with Dr. Sibi provided the best possbile care! The staff felt like family that I didn't want to leave! Ideal is the type of resort where one can comfortably have their privacy or it is easy to meet other guests - who are interesting and genuine.
