All the beautiful personalities and hearts at Ganesh . Thank you to you ALL for being my support and safe haven . I chose this place In the hope I would find a little peace and a little rest and healing, and I got Both plus family. So much so that I returned and switched my home stay so I could be back at ‘ home ‘ with these guys . I just cannot thank dear Murugan and his son and the girls for their absolute sweet welcome every day. I’ve had Ayurvedic attention for years but never to the expertise of dear Dr Renjith and Carla who gave such wonderful treatments 💎. I owe all my love, smiles and gratitude to him , his papa , and the girls that made my stay clean well fed and this beautiful homely healing place to such a massive part of my recovery . I’m coming home soon!! .. thank you so much 🌴🧡

This is the second holiday I have spent here and I cannot praise it too highly. I have just returned from three weeks there and cannot wait to go back. Muragan and Renjith are fantastic hosts and cannot do enough for you. Organising trips , ordering tuk tuks, breakfast choices etc. All the staff, cleaners, night watchman are all very friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean , spacious and cool. Outlook over the lake and wildlife idyllic. I didn’t try any of Dr Renjith’s Ayurvedic treatments but spoke to other guests that did and they were well impressed with the benefits. Next time I will try a treatment. Muragan even rang me to see if I had a safe journey home, how’s that for a host! Felt part of the family, fantastic, roll on next January when I will return. Photo is view from my balcony at sunrise.

Wonderful visit, as it has been from our first. Great accommodation, rooms spotless, pool inviting. Murugan could not be more helpful, from tuk tuks to toast!! Organised a great early evening trip to Poovar to go out on the backwaters. And now the added benefit of Dr Renjith. We received great Ayuvedic treatment in the purpose built consulting and treatment rooms. Will be back next year, for another rejuvenating and relaxing stay. Could not praise it more highly.

I LOVE this place! My heart belongs here and I will be back! It was my second visit to Ganesh, I went back because they make you feel part of the family. Especially being a solo traveller, it is important to me to be somewhere I feel safe. Dr Renjith and Muragan really look after you and nothing is too much trouble. I love the laid back and peaceful vibe and tranquil surroundings! The Ayurvedic treatments are amazing an Dr Renjith is so knowledgable. Here’s a little poem I wrote I’ll let that do the talking... In India I had a few weeks away It was such an amazing holiday I had to do a rhyming review Of Ganesh Ayurveda Holiday Home for you Many places I have stayed But this is definitely a fav Family owned they make you feel so welcome Muragan and Dr Renjith, father and son With Omana the housekeeper and Amrata too The friendly and attentive staff look after you Placed on beautiful Lake Vellayani near Kovalam Beach The views from Ganesh are pretty hard to beat There’s hardly anything else around Nature is the only sight and sound The tropical foliage is lush and green The air is clean with a warm gentle breeze Surrounded by swaying palm trees With their coconuts and gently rustling leaves The songs of birds fill the skies And there’s beautiful sunset and sunrise Ganesh is done in traditional Kerala style Clean and fresh with cool marble tiles Balconies are decked in comfy chairs of varnished wood Bedrooms are spacious with a fan or air con you sleep so good Ganesh is ecologically friendly as well With solar panels and their own water well There are sunbeds and a good-sized pool Where you can sunbathe and keep cool Dr Renjith is a master of Ayurveda Healing He will talk to you and explain its meaning Treatments will help you feel rejuvenated And calm and happiness will be created You can also do yoga by the pool or on the roof Sun Salutations with a view So, if you’re looking for tranquillity and peace At Ganesh, you can finally relax and breathe This has become my happy place I’m already planning to visit again one day If you’re coming to Kerala check it out You’ll love it, I have no doubt!

I have stayed at Ganesh a number of times and feel like an old friend. The staff understand their guests and appreciate how challenging India can be. The place offers a beautifully clean and safe retreat. With a pool and gardens all around, privacy and a balcony to all rooms, it feels like a self contained apartment even if you just book a room. The accommodation is great value and only £3 max to get a Tuk Tuk to the beach with all its hustle and bustle. I love to return here. Breakfasts are good, clean water always available and tea making in room. A safe and high quality option. Much better than the pick and mix of Kovalam resorts hotels and homestays.

I, my German friend and her father stayed at the property for 18 days. The apartment and the room below were clean and comfortable. We spent long hours sitting on the balcony overlooking the lake. But the best was the swimming pool,always clean. Mr. Murugan and his son Renjith are both helpful and pleasant, and make every effort to ensure you have a lovely stay. Beach is hardly 10 minutes from the place. Would highly recommend and will definitely be back next year.

This is my 3rd stay at Ganesh Holiday Home, it never disappoints. Tge most peaceful tranquil plave I've ever visited. The apartments are clean, good healthy breakfast, very friendly staff, poolside kept clean. For evening meals it is only a 10 minute ride by Tuk Tuk to Kovalam Beach, would also recommend Tuk Tuk into Trivandrum great experience. The room we stayed in was an air con room, on the balcony you could see across and see the lake, though would recommend trimming back the greenery, so guests can enjoy the views. They now also auyverdic therapy, I had a vert good massage, would recommend a leaflet in the rooms, so guests can see what therapies are on offer and prices. I would like to say thanks to Murguan for another great stay.

A wonderful stay with a beautiful pool set in a rural location overlooking a lake. First class pool. Very good staff who maintained the pool and surrounds twice a day. Good basic breakfast of fresh fruit, eggs and toast each day. It is a 10 minute Tuk Tuk ride away from the sights of Kovalam but this is compensated for by being in a rural village environment. The manager was very obliging during our stay but demanded that we pay in cash for the room 2 hours before we were to depart for the airport to fly home, despite our booking paperwork saying that it would be charged to our credit card. Pulled the trick of the card reader not working. Left a bad impression on an otherwise enjoyable stay.
