We liked VERY little about this retreat. Karan, the restaurant waiter was kind, punctual and professional. The tour driver who took us to the city for the day was great, he was knowledgeable and friendly, made us forget about the retreat!

"Slice of heaven, truly spectacular stay"

The food, the ocean views, the infinity pool, the room, yoga classes and massages, the 36 Palms hosts - honestly cannot decide between them. Okay, fine, the FOOD! We traveled all over southwestern India and this was the best food by FAR! MUST try the polichattu - local delight that is out of this world. The entire experience cannot be compared to anything else. We are so thankful to 36 Palms for this truly relaxing, rejuvenating and unbelievably memorable stay.

"36 Palms for Rest and Rejuvenation "

We are a couple from the Bay Area/California and took a much needed break to Kerala with the intent to break away from work with Yoga, Ayurvedic Massage and Vegetarian food. This place is awesome with great hosts in Dori & Gautam, it was like home away from home - listening to the sound of the waves crashing against the resort property walls. Very good R&R for us after many years - quiet, great Yoga and massage facilities!!

"a little paradise . . "

36 palms is just the most beautiful resort, the traditional decor really gives you a feel of real India, a stone throw from the sea. As a single traveller I felt so welcomed and looked after by the wonderful staff who really invited me and made me feel like family. It’s the most relaxing environment, quiet and peaceful, it really is a little piece of paradise. Briji is a wonderful yoga instructor. Thank you 36 palms, I look forward to my return.

"An intimate local experience"

The 36 Palms is a very cozy hotel, right on the sea. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, all the staff is super friendly, nice and helpful. Food at the restaurant is good and healthy. The atmosphere you breathe there is of a place intimate and relaxing, where to feel at home. The yoga classes were tailored on our level and during the week we varied and progressed in the complexity of the practice. The Ayurvedic treatments were of an average/good level. The surroundings are very interesting and worth to explore.

"Paradise in Cherai Beach "

It was a fantastic experience, everything worked for the overal satisfaction: beautiful hotel with family atmosphere created by exeptional owners Dorota nad Gutam, outstanding location on the beach, a dolphin visitng this area every morning, attentive staff members. Yoga classes were also experience to remember. Briji includes all aspects of yoga into each class, adding his personal a sence of humour and willingness to show local attractions togehter with charming wife Harita.
