I can not think of anything bad at all to say about Carnoustie! It is an amazing place. The garden is beautifull and full of birds, summerbirds, squirrels and even mongoose. The villas - we had a lovely Akund Villa with an amazing view through the park towards the beach - are "to die for". Wifi works perfect. The food...

We just stayed 5 days at this most amazing Ayurvedic Spa/Hotel. We wanted somewhere to relax, have treatments and eat healthily after a 2 week trip travelling all around South India. This was the most perfect place we could have found. We had 2 very good treatments every day (usually a massage and something else like a reflexology treatment). In...

We just got back from a stay in the 'Punag Pool Villa' , and I have to say this villa is absolutely breathtaking! It has a beautiful private pool with a wall for privacy around it. Along the wall is lush vegetation, including some beautiful red coloured palms. The thatched roof helps to give the villa that tropical theme also....

We have just returned from a nine day visit to Carnoustie. I think it was a small piece of Paradise. It is set in a truly wonderful garden with thatched cottages, which are the accommodation and are very beautifully appointed, and a pleasure to stay in. Carnoustie is definitely a Wellness centre with an Ayurveda treatment centre. You can take...

I have just recently been at this resort and was amazed by the great service of all of the people there and especially the doctors. I underwent the treatment with integrated medicine by Dr. Ahmed Ali, as I was suffering from back pain and a bended spine. Despite only limited time (5 days), through his extreme commitment and excellent qualities,...

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
