Beautiful location, highly recommended to relax and take care of yourself. Excellent service, the owners are very kind and welcoming. The food is healthy, simple, and yummy. Geraldine's yoga classes are great, slow and focused. I also recommend the massages, very unique steaming experience!
What a wonderful place. Geraldine, her husband and the staf are most welcoming. Nice, caring, listening. A magnificent garden, nice rooms, a paradise in a wonderful nature. The ayurvedic treatments are great, the food excellent. Geraldine perfectly knows the insider tips, and will do her best to satisfy her clients. I can only recommend. GO!!
I enjoyed my stay in this Heaven . Geraldine and Deepan take care of us , so attentive people . The bungalows are confortable The food is vegetarian, tasty , fresh ,colorful,various, made with love .(cooking look available) Geraldine’ Yoga is a delicat wake up of our senses. The Ayurvedic massage/cure is in the traditionnel way ; the therapist is an expert and follows an doctor ‘ s prescription. Body and soul are in a so peaceful area : I didn ‘t want to go back …
I highly recommend this beautiful retreat grounded in a heavenly location, by a peaceful river. Both Deepan and Geraldine make sure each guest receives the full benefits from the well thought-out program : delicious, fresh and refined vegetarian meals, relaxing ayurvedic treatments, yoga classes and meditation sessions make this a well rounded cure for the body and mind. The whole setting offers a unique opportunity to reconnect to nature and one's self. Many thanks to the entire team for their unrelenting kindness and care.
A little paradise, peaceful piece of land near the Periyar River. Just enjoy the landscape, the nature, the yoga, the meals, the great ayurvedic treatments. A place to meditate and to reconnect yourself with nature, a place to rest, a place to experiment...the place to be! A great place to understand what is yoga and Ayurveda and how it can benefit your body, your soul and your spirit.
Great stay ! People were all lovely and very professional too. Ayurvedic of high quality. Yoga course were great too. Geraldine and Deepan are very attentive. The place is beautiful with very clean and charming cottages. Food is very good too. We were also able to swim in the river and to have boat trip in the backwaters. My son played football with children from the nearby village. Many thanks !
I stayed 4 weeks at this beautiful place on that beautiful Island in the middle of the Periyar River. It was a unique experience full of tropical nature, great Yoga and Ayurvedic treatments. Alone the concert of the birds in the morning, the meditative flow of the Periyar and its hourly changing atmosphere, magical! Geraldine, the leader of the retreat is a sensitiv and very nice host. Great food, cooked by Indian moms, is quite authentic Kerala food, just less hot...The room was perfect for my needs, airy, big enough, very clean. Thank You so much for all the staff of BBI for making my stay so enjoyable and unforgettable. I already miss my bicycle trips and walks in this lush and tropical landscape.
Big bungalows, most pleasant outside shadowed eating place, quiet and discreet surroundings, a river where to bath. AND so good welcome and attention to visitors and excellent food. Top quality ayurvedic cure.
Deepan and Geraldine are just fantastic all the team is so nice and sweet (Ayurvedic Doctor, massage people, cookers, servers etc) The location is so beautiful, on a small island of 700m/ 300m. Great ayurvedic treatment, made yoga practice in the morning, followed by various massages with oil, hot pouches etc... excellent food under the management of “chef” Deepan and with product from the garden And on top of that, yoga classes and exchanges / discussions with Geraldine and Deepan. I warmly recommend it
Wonderful experience ! The bungalows are comfortable and close to the water, very relaxing atmosphere. Geraldine & Deepan are very nice, the staff is very friendly and the food is delicious ! You can do yoga, excursions, have ayurvedic massages, it is super !
