We stayed here for 2 nights, booked 3 rooms. The rooms were SO beautiful, especially the bathrooms. Everything was clean and beautifully kept. The beds were extremely comfortable. Vishnu took really good care of us, taking care of all our requests - as much as possible. He was very polite and attentive, we really enjoyed our stay specifically because of Vishnu. We also used the pool one of the days - it's a lot of fun and although it looks small-ish, we managed to spend a couple hours there. The breakfast was very good, with fruits, idli, putu, juices and what not. We were not able to get massages here though - schedules didn't work out. Highly recommend this place, one of a kind experience!

We really enjoyed our stay at this place. The room was super clean and cosy! One of the best rooms we had in India. The breakfast was very yummy and the staff was friendly and always down to help us if we needed anything. A huge bonus to our stay was the pool they have, it's really quit and relaxing to lay at the pool here. Thank you for a nice time!

'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!…

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 β€œAyurvedic 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.…

Wow--what a real find!!--having stayed at Kovalam 15 years---this is a real find !!--Anish and his wife ( owners) were so helpful--from my initial enquiry to us leaving---May I suggest you book direct with Anish ..as he organises the taxi, transfer...and answered all my questions .Robin and Vishnu were professional and so so helpful in everyway---making our 16 night holiday a real treat and totally relaxing--as soon as we arrived..they greeted us with welcome drinks.. Robin--GM--ensured we were comfortable and walked us to the beach---Location is 8/ 10 minutes walk from the beaches -- we enjoyed walking and taking the atmosphere--very peaceful--and so, so quiet--Our bedroom large and super large bathroom with all the 'mod cons'...exceptional walk in shower room----was beautifully presented--stunning granite tiles all decorated to the highest standard of furnishing, beautiful, very high standard linen and super fluffy towels----Housekeeping was exceptional .... high standard guest supplies---'state of the art' air conditioning and a large quiet fan...so comfortable ...home from home...plus relaxing balcony chairs . The breakfast was another five star memorable treat!--A huge platter of fresh fruit and juices , followed by a further two courses locally cooked by the hotel Chefs... changing daily-Anish's wife provided yoga daily on the Villa's roof terrace---beautiful and a lovely start to the day. The whole experience in this stunning beautiful place was 101%--I could not fault in anyway---if you want a five star experience, within quiet, peaceful..surroundings..and real personal service..this is the place....Ayur Villa --after 15 years I have found the perfect place--for calmness , relaxation complimented with very high standards. I cannot wait to return and will certainly be recommending to our friends and family.…

The Ayur Villa is a beautiful hotel very near to the beach. The best of all was the staff. Robin, the manager, and his team gave us a good time and were there for us at any moment we needed their help. They too were always ready for a good chat or tips regarding good restaurants etc. The breakfast too was delicious with freshly pressed juices and excellent local food. The rooms were very big, neat and very comfortable. We felt very much at home at this great place. Thanks for the nice stay.
