This place is 5km outside main city and is the best place to relax. It has 3 parts. 1. Main building which has reception and super deluxe room with best view of sea from room balcony. 2. A building next to main building which has pool and Ayurveda center. 3. Is the restaurant and the deluxe room. Best part is here because you will have to reach the restaurant by a small boat by crossing a narrow channel of water. Its just like crossing a road on a boat. A small boat with a man stands there and rows the boat and takes people from one to other side. Never seen such a thing. Plus the peace and view is awesome. It is around 5 6 km from kovalam beach. Resort has its auto and car which can drop you to beach, airport, city (trips are charged). But it's really helpful as they have auto ready to take you. My suggestion, anywhere you go its always better to take auto rather than cab. Its affordable, roads are good, so auto works just fine. Loved the stay here. But yes, the restaurant takes little time to prepare food. And not sure if it was an issue with the voltage or if my room's AC was defective, but the AC would switch off in 5 10 minutes. We told the reception, they changed the battery, still it would off. But the fan was enough actually. We didn't feel any heat. Overall, this is a very good place and if i come again to Trivandrum, i will again stay here.
The resort is well placed between trivendurum and kovalam easily accessible. Good staff in front office. Very poor food quality if you are vegetarian. No choices. Chapatis made of fine atta. Need lot of improvement.

I booked 28 days of Ayuvedic treatment and left early as I was disappointed with the experience. They were an hour late picking me up on the first day, despite proving a phone number for the place I was staying. The doctors diagnosis was incorrect and she was not at all interested in my treatment or progress. I was prescribed over the counter appetite suppressant tablets which had preservatives in them. I was often the only person at the resort doing Ayuvedic treatment so it was very isolating. The pool was out of order for more than 4 days and the internet was not working for one week. When it was fixed it could only be used downstairs, not in the rooms. The food was terrible. The portions were too big (I was there for weight loss) and there was only 1 salad for the 28 days. The soups were tasteless. When I questioned this, I was told by the doctor to give salad recipes to the kitchen??!! The river and ocean were heavily polluted with rubbish. The resort moved the rubbish to higher ground each day but when the tide came in, it was washed downstream. Complete waste of time. The staff at the resort were the only good thing. The waiters and therapists were friendly and lovely. I wasted time and money on this treatment at the recommended of an Australian Ayuvedic doctor. It was only after spending 14 days at an authentic, professional resort did I truly understand how terrible my experience at Beach and Lake was. Dont waste your time or money!
This place is only suitable on the condition that you like the following: Deserted beaches Breathtaking sunsets Healthy food Being pampered Small, quiet, informal hotels Discrete, attentive service Tranquility Peaceful swimming pools surrounded by lush gardens and palm trees 2 hour full body massages Fresh fruit salads Falling asleep to the sound of crashing waves Waking up to a symphony of birdsong Yoga, meditation and spiritual discourse Taking it very, very easy Delightful staff with a family feel Being barefoot Sitting on a balcony, looking at stars Eagles swooping overhead All your senses stimulated A laid back, casual atmosphere ....you get the idea This is a fantastic place - a tranquil oasis just a couple of miles from the city in one direction and a lively beach resort in the other I would highly recommend and look forward to staying again
