The entire resort has been built according to the traditional architectural principals of Kerala Vastu, which dictates that a building should be constructed so to conform to the subtle laws of nature.

Miranda, Rosie and Carrie are here to help give you the inside track.

Hence the whole site faces east and the rising sun while buildings are spaced out and positioned in correct relation to each other to bring about a profoundly peaceful atmosphere.

Set amongst 12 acres of palm grove and fronted by a long stretch of pristine, unspoilt beach with clean sea in which to swim, it is the ultimate place to escape.

Each cottage has its own private courtyard garden, spacious veranda and bathrooms with partial outdoor showers. The interiors are modern, with beautiful teak floors, deep mattresses and fine linens.

The spa offers Ayurvedic treatments, a wide variety of traditional massage and purification regimes, aromatherapy, Dr Hauschka organic facial and beauty treatments, and rejuvenation therapy and lifestyle and dietary coaching.
