I stayed at elephant pass for 10 days doing a yoga retreat package. Everyone was super friendly and always willing to help. Bobby even arranged a couple of days trips so I could explore Kerala a bit more. It was fun trying all the different foods and I miss the delicious juices! Elephant pass is is right beside the river and is incredibly peaceful. I will always remember the quiet swims in the river. My yoga instructor was fantastic and I was lucky enough to have one on one sessions while I was at elephant pass. All in all my stay was near perfect and that comes down to the great staff at elephant pass. If you are looking for some down time I would definitely recommend it!

We had a four night stay here and found it to be a lovely place on the banks of the river periyar. It is all vegetarian food, something we are not used to, but everything is very tasty and the manager very informative about the food, we had some delicious fruit juices, some from fruits in the grounds. Rooms are clean and tidy with staff very helpful at all times, we both had some of the treatments available and enjoyed them

I had an amazing stay at Elephant Pass! I stayed 8 days and 8 nights in total. Staff there are all so caring, attentive and friendly! The manager and his family are extremely kind and the food is a pure delight! Being vegan, they have cooked delicious fresh vegan food for me. Every bite was a pleasure! All the dishes were different and very fresh and tasty! The place is extremely calm and relaxing, birds are singing and the sun is shining! The massages are TOP quality with very beautiful and smiley masseuse! And yoga oh yoga! As a daily practitioner and passionate about yoga I had the best yoga experience with a very talented yoga master. He wasn’t only kind and generous but also extremely caring and experienced. His adjustments were spot on and he helped me to achieved yoga postures I had been working on for a long time. He also has a great sense of humour and a very soothing voice! I highly recommend this place!

Travelling alone, I stayed here for 7 nights and had a wonderful, relaxing stay giving me the chance to really unwind from the daily grind.

The vegetarian breakfast, lunch and dinner served was some of the best Indian cuisine I have ever eaten and gave me the opportunity to really try some foods that I wouldn't be brave enough to eat otherwise. The banana flower dish was my favourite.

All of the staff were kind, gentle, attentive and really make the place what it is.

The treatments were brilliant. I had 4 different treatments, a total of 11 times. They were all new to me but all a great experience.

Yoga lessons and instruction was provided by a wonderful yoga instructor who had good humility, looked to understand any personal ailments and gently adjusted your postures for correct alignments.

They do offer trips out to the local Ayurvedic factory or for walks in the forest or down the river. And every night at dusk you get to see 100s of bats fly down the river catching mosquitoes which was amazing to watch!

The warmest staff, the greatest location, superb healthy food, the most professional massages - all this for a very reasonable cost. We only stayed two days - not long enough to really relax but we will be back for at least a week.
This is not for everyone - there are no kids running around screaming, there is no pool or bar, there is little choice of menu, but the food is well balanced and nutricious - overseen by a friendly informative resident ayurvedic doctor. I can't think of anywhere I've ever felt so laid back and relaxed. It is not 5 star but is very comfortable - and being by the river there tends to be a few mosquitos at nightfall. All in all a most relaxing stay.
