It was, without any doubt, a very relaxing and healthy time! The resort has a very individual approach toward guests: treatments, diet, doctor's consultancy - it is a big advantage of Ananda Lakshmi unlike other big and more commercial resorts in Kerala. We stayed in the air-conditioned villa but not all of them are having this facility. The resort is having an organic garden and planting own vegetables, fruits, and spices which are turn into very delicious dishes created by the high-class chef. What is more, we had a unique opportunity to attend a cooking class which helps to continue a healthy cousin after coming back home. Resort's manager is available for his guest and did his best to make our stay interesting. He organized for us backwater trip, elephant place, and tuk-tuk any time we need it. Joga lessons were more than very good - it was the best hatha yoga, pranayama, and meditation ever! We couldn't be more lucky with our teacher. Also, the rest of the staff: waitresses, receptionists, doctors, therapists, cleaning service - they all are there for you smiling and willing to help. We highly recommend this resort this is a great place to relax during treatments, in the swimming pool and become more healthy.

Wir waren dort für zwei Wochen für ein Ayurveda Treatment. Das Hotel ist klein, das haben wir bewusst so ausgesucht. Die Lage ist auf einer Klippe, ruhig, mit Blick auf das Meer und die Palmen. Die Zimmer in den Bungalows sind sehr gross und schön mit Balkon oder Terasse. Mit Blick auf Palmen bzw. ganz vorne mit Meerblick. Die Zimmer im Haupthaus, haben kein Balkon. Der Garten war sehr liebevoll gestaltet und gepflegt, klein aber fein mit Pool. Die Treatments waren hervorragend. Man hat sich viel Zeit für uns genommen. Es wurde auch auf Wünsche eingegangen. Extra erwähnen möchte ich meine beiden Therapeutinnen, Suja und Anitha. Ich habe mich immer sehr wohl gefühlt und die beiden haben es sehr gut gemacht. Vom Housekeeping über die Therapeuten, das Küchenpersonal ect. sind alle sehr freundlich, es fühlt sich an, wie nach Hause kommen. Das Essen war sehr lecker und abwechslungsreich. Auch hier möchte ich den F&B Manager Ajid loben, er ist so viel mehr als das. Sehr freundlich und souverän bzw. zuvorkommend, man konnte Ihn alles fragen und er hat alles gemanagt bzw. organisiert. Ein wirklich top Mitarbeiter, war immer sofort zur Stelle und hat mitgedacht. Es gab jeden Morgen Yoga. Hier ist die die Yogahalle sehr speziell gebaut, mit Blick auf das Meer und eine tolle Atmosphäre. Ich hatte noch nie so einen guten Yogalehrer, er ist auf jeden einzelnen eingegangen. Ich kann dieses Resort sehr empfehlen. Wer es gerne ruhig und familiär hat, ist dort genau richtig.

It was an amazing experience. I was in paradise for two weeks. The owners and the staff were friendly and very professional. I ate very well and they were very attentive to my intolerances. Every day the medical doctor checked me before the treatment. I’ll come back.

A small, atmospheric Ayurvedic medicine center. I've been coming here since 2013. This was my 7th time. Medical care at the highest level. Qualified therapists (special thanks to Anita). Great staff, but more importantly, wonderful people, always smiling and ready to help. They've been the same for years. A perfect place for people who want to be born again. Mentally and physically. I feel like family here. I highly recommend it.

What a special place, made so by the excellent team at Ananda Lakshmi! We were delighted with the results of our 2 week panchakarma retreat. The food is excellent, therapists are very professional and personable, yoga excellent, and the clifftop location tranquil is a nature trove surrounded by soaring eagles and abundant wildlife especially butterflies. Many thanks to John and all the team, looking forward to seeing you again.

We had a great time @anandalakshmi. The staffs were very courteous , the rooms were very clean and spotless. Overall the setting of the place calms your mind and aesthetically pleasing. The place and the rooms looked exactly as shown in their website. Staffs were very accommodative and provided us an extra cot(not a rollaway mattress) as we were a family of 4. It is located on a cliff, the view from the resort is such a treat to the eyes. It is a bit on the expensive side, we could negotiate as it was their off peak season. The food was very tasty and they made arrangements to give us our coffee early. The chef Mr Vijesh and team never made us wait. Mr Alex quickly responded. The location is little tricky and if you are driving on your own, you will need little patience. Without GPS we would have not reached the place. It is about 40mins from Trivandrum. We drove from Coimbatore, so it was very tiring. For a true Kerala experience and if you don't mind the little tiring journey, it's worth a visit.

It really is such a shame that this place is managed so poorly as the actual resort is beautiful. I booked two months in advance through Book Yoga Retreats. 'The owner' Gianni emailed me to offer the rate of £670 for 8 full days yoga and Ayurvedic treatments and 2 days B+B. I paid £335 as 50% deposit and told I would pay the other £335 on arrival. When I arrived 499 euros were in fact charged to my card and I was told I had only been booked in for 7 days treatment plan. I forward the email confirmation Gianni sent clearly stating 8 full days, but he informed the manager (who showed me the email) 'if she wants more she can pay! I honestly have never experienced such a rude and horrific Customer service in my life. All Gianni cares about is taking your money! After four days of arguing by email and threatening to write to the Keralan tourist board the original package offered was honoured. This was not how I envisioned my first four days at a relaxing retreat! Book YogaRetreats were extremely unhelpful despite the fact that the special discounted package was still being advertised. All the tourist trip prices were also wrong and I ended up paying twice the price for the elephant trip. The treatments were very good and the therapists well trained and attentive. The cleaning staff were also very good. The food was amazing but the waiting staff were a joke, with the exception of one called Shafik who was excellent but he was only there for a few days.They have clearly employed teenagers as they are cheaper than trained staff, once the food was served they sat down on the computer or on their phones, leaving us to fend for ourselves. I would come down in the morning for yoga and our dirty dinner table had been left all night not cleaned with plates and food on the table. I asked for a juice in the afternoon and the next afternoon the dirty glass was still on the table! On our last night though they were very attentive expecting a tip! Also as there were only two of us staying at the retreat I was constantly being told I could not have the food I requested as I was only one person. This is also not the place for you if you are a light sleeper as it is located in a very noisy neighbourhood, next door there is a dog that barks from 12pm to 4am every night, then as it is a farm there are workers cutting down coconuts, blasting music and shouting to each other from 4.30am along with the cockerel crowing! Not exactly relaxing! Kerala is a beautiful place and I will be coming back, but definitely not to Isis. I imagine this place was once a nice place but it has no heart and soul. I recommend the beach resort 10 minutes away which is right on the beach and has a much higher standard of service it's called Manaltheeram.

The property was lovely, food delicious, restaurant/housekeeping/grounds staff super friendly. I was in a second floor villa with a great view of the pool and the Arabian Sea...paradise!! BUT I was less than pleased with the Ayurvedic treatments and staff. The doctor said that my eczema would be totally cleared up and that I would lose three kilos during my one week visit—incredibly ambitious, in my opinion! And guess what...I still have eczema! I didn’t lose weight! It was ridiculous of him to make such lofty promises. Also, while my therapist was very nice, she was not very good at following the directions that the doctors and I gave (the doctor admitted afterwards that this was his fault—he agreed that I needed deep tissue work, and that I didn’t get it). I’d hoped to have a relaxing experience, but instead left feeling agitated. Overall, I’m glad I had the experience...but perhaps my expectations were too high (didn’t help that the doctor put them there!) Would recommend, but only if you don’t expect good massages (very light touch, mostly just rubbing/pouring oil on you for 2.5 hours).
