5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2011

I spent one-week yoga retreat at Mundax and it was really amazing. As a female solo traveler, I have to be really careful with the places I choose... I was alone with Mathew in this (oh so beautiful!) big house and I never felt threatened, uncomfortable or anything. Mathew was so respectful and natural.

What I liked the most was to sit on my porch and look at the sun, the trees flowers and the Nature around. Mathew is very flexible regarding the yoga and meditation schedule and would adapt to my choices. I would totally come back for another retreat !!!

I stayed at mundax for 5 days and really enjoyed my time there. As a host Matthew is considerate, interesting and has a great grasp of maintaing a balance of leaving you to yourself or providing company. The food is very good, prepared with great care and delivered with a big smile by his cook Wadewar (incorrect spelling). The yoga and meditation lessons are taught with a focused and gentle method that allows progression whatever your level whilst leaving you relaxed and rejuvenated (and hungry) at the end of each session. The room was very clean, very spacious and the beds extremely comfortable. The local area was a pleasure to explore, walking to the next village, around the tea plantations and the massage at the local ayurvedic hospital was a great experience. If you are looking for a place to unwind, escape the tourist trail and improve your yoga I would highly recommend mundax.

Mundax Homestay Retreat

Mathew has two rooms in his retreat.  We stayed in the larger of the two, a spacious suite with a firm bed, private sitting area, large bathroom  and shower (complete with shower curtain, a rarity in India) and windows with a view of his organic acreage.

Breakfast and suppers were abundant feasts with a wide variety of delicious food which kept our appetites eagerly anticipating the next authentic Keralan dish.  Snacks, fruit, tea, and coffee were always available outside of mealtimes.

As for the retreat, we are most grateful for Mathew's gentle tutelage in yoga, meditation and spirituality.  The experience was so positive we doubled the length of our stay!

We chose to combine our daily yoga and meditation regimen with Ayurvedic treatments at a local hospital, a 40-minute walk away along a road bordered by tea plantations.  I have not experienced a more relaxing or rejuvenating holiday.

My wife and I spent 16 days touring Kerala and Matthew's Mundax Homestay provided a very relaxing, peaceful and enlightening couple of days and nights stop as we travelled through to Kumily. I had wanted to visit a yoga retreat during our holiday and this more than met my expectations it smashed them. We had solo treatment with a flexible programme of tuition. The food was fantastic (you need an appetite!) and the views and house were beautiful. It wouldn't be out of place as a hot European country mansion. The fact I can't think of anything to improve upon really emphasises how much we enjoyed our stay and recommend it to others looking for friendly service with a top quality environment.
