'A home away from home!' is perhaps a compliment any guest would find most fitting for a hotel that did well but for the first time in my life I find myself really yearning to give it to a place! There is not a single element I would like to be different about this beautifully designed villa, it's staff and the services. It has the most tasteful architecture exhibiting a powerful traditional and Indian tropical image and extremely calm, squeaky clean and luxurious interiors that promise comfort. There is nothing more important in the hospitality sector than its people and the services they provide and in this, Ayur Villa's people outshine. They carried a 'never -say -no' attitude and since we were visiting with our toddler I am sure my demands were plenty and I was never denied a thing. They are highly courteous, amiable and thoughtful. The food was healthy and we were served lots of local delicacies and always with a smile! I truly believe that such attitude is a sure sign of great training and a management that thoroughly believes in the welfare of it's people and the guests they aim to serve. Robin, the manager with years of experience in the hospitality industry was most welcoming, friendly and accommodating. His ability to transform from a commercial hotel set- up (in his earlier career) to a personalized villa experience is commendable. Vishnu, the ever smiling, hardworking and most sincere all -rounder surely has a bright future. We chanced upon the owners of the property who themselves were put up in one of the rooms temporarily and were very gracious and warm. We with Ayur Villa and team the very best and hope to visit soon!

Our last travel before Corona was in the beginning of March to Kovalam. Normally, when we visit Kovalam, we used to get a bigger accomodation, but this time we chose Ayur Villa - and this was absolutely great. We (couple plus small child) were picked up by Robin, and directly after that all details were being taken care of. Just some points: - Clean, spacy room, great bathrooms - Everyday a minimum of 2 extra local dishes are being served and they were fantastic - eating in for all other meals is also possible and totally worth it - clean pool, where our child also learned his first steps in the water - beach is easy to reach and its easy to come back (if by walk, it is a bit steep) - Ayurveda messages and consulting is done by very experienced specialists and doctors But that is not even the best part: the whole staff managed by Anish & led by Robin is the real great pluspoint - its almost impossible to get that amount of care friendlyness and reliability in any hotel - worldwide. While our child was in the phase of always running around and almost never sitting still, the staff calmed us and took care, even if they didnt have to, so we had some of very few relaxing breakfasts - so this is also recommended for families. We cannot say anything other than Thanks and wish you guys all the best and until next time!

Response from Anish Kumar, Owner at The Ayur Villa
Responded 30 Sep 2020
Dear Guest Thank you very much for taking time to write a detailed review of your stay in The Ayur Villa. We are glad to hear that the stay with family was memorable and Robin and team take care of the kid and provided outstanding services. After your stay we have closed the villa and reopened in September with the same staff strength . Kovalam beach is more beautiful now as it has been untouched for 06 months. Ayurveda has very effective treatment for body immunisation and stress along with yoga and meditation which many are looking for getting natural immunity. We look forward serving you again. Regards Anish

Pros: Helpful manager Large, clean room and bathroom O.K. breakfast Cons: Balconies are very, very small....with no proper furniture...upper floor had view of sea, but also trash and messy back of property Pool is a joke.....tiny with 2 chairs and no shade....no room to relax and have a pool day....not a pretty area with all kinds of cleaning products and rags!!! Beware of the location of this hotel😱......it is located at the very top of an extremely high hill....walking down is slow going, but you need a tuk tuk to return to the hotel.....doesn't facilitate going up and down more than once a day The small breakfast area has a mattress thrown in the corner..... not a very cheery spot for breakfast.... I would not recommend this hotel because of the prices they charge.....this is a 2* hotel with 4* prices...

Beautiful and clean rooms built to a very high standard made for a very enjoyable stay and the kind hospitality given by the owners and all the staff was incredible.. The room was extremely comfortable and the home cooked food was particularly delicious. In fact the daily breakfast was a special treat with its wide variety of options. Robin and Vishnu looked after us very well throughout. They are both a credit to the owners Anish and Anjali and we enjoyed spending time getting to know them both a little better. Robin in particular was a great help throughout our visit and helped to resolve any issues quickly and effectively. The Doctor who arranged our “Ayurvedic treatment” and the masseurs - Maria and Anjin were all very good and Anjin in particular was able to resolve a long standing shoulder injury for me in just a few days. My wife would also like to express her thanks to Anjeli for the yoga sessions and it was a delight to meet her and your children. The taxi driver/ service to take us back to the airport was very punctual and ensured that we got there quickly and on time. We hope and look forward to revisiting Kerala and Ayur Villa again in the not too distant future and once again would like to thank all of the kind individuals who helped to make our stay there so comfortable and memorable.
