This is a truly wonderful place. Beautiful resort grounds and rooms, helpful and professsional staff and the treatments superb. It is really the ayurveda that you need to come for as they do a fantastic job but at least one excursion to the backwaters on the resort boat is also a must. Food very good indeed, including when on an... More

The resort is very well maintained, the villas are awesome, most of them with private swimming pool and excellent treatments. The owner is very symphatic and very spiritual. It is like coming home. And I may not forget the food. 12 days... More

We actually came across the resort online and decided to try this place. We had an amazing experience and my son loved the beach there. Nice place but it would be better if they had rooms near the beach and the restaurant was taking a lot of time to make the food. Spa was fantastic and the rooms were very... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Carnoustie Ayurveda & Wellness Resort, situated at the Marari beach close to the Alappuzha backwaters, comprises of 40 luxury villas, a traditional Ayurveda Spa, Two Backwater Suite in Muhamma, One Two Bedroom House Boat and a Sailing Club. The villas are designed to reduce energy and water consumption as well as minimize the use of exhaustible materials. The eco-friendly resort ensures that we use materials such as jute, bamboo, recycled cardboard instead of wood, reprocessed plastic and scrap wood. While at the resort, travellers can take lake/ backwater tours to gaze at the gorgeous paddy fields of Alapphuza, try out the early-morning yoga sessions, unwind at the beach, relax at the spa, enjoy performances by local traditional dancers and Kerala’s range of percussion music, try their hand at night fishing, cycle around villages or sail the backwaters and learn a bit of archery. ... more   less
