The elegant guesthouse, recently constructed in 2008, combines Kerala's ancient beauty with modern luxurious bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms.

The entire building and landscaping has been carefully designed and crafted in accordance with the principles of Vaastu (Indian equivalent of Feng Shui) in order to maximize the wellbeing of all guests. The roof top restaurant area is the ideal spot to enjoy delicious Keralan cuisine from Auntie Usha's kitchen.

A sliver of a coastal state in India's deep south, Kerala is shaped by its layered landscape which is almost 600 kilometers of glorious Arabian Sea coast and beaches; a languid network of glistening backwaters; and the spice and tea-covered hills of the Western Ghats. Just setting foot on this swathe of soul-quenching, palm-shaded green will slow your sub continental stride to a blissed-out amble. Kerala is a world away from the frenzy of elsewhere, as if India had passed through the looking glass and become an altogether more laid-back place.

    "The place is fantastic amazing. Tranquil. A perfect place to learn. Subash was a brilliant Yoga teacher. Firm but kind and super knowledgeable. A complete professional, in all aspects of learning it was very good, the care and attention to make every detail of this course perfect. Also, there is very small classes, which helped me as I have learning difficulties. The rooms tidy and always kept clean. The restaurant at the top of the house surrounded by the treetops was breathtaking. It was a pleasure to eat there. The food was faultless. Being on the yoga teacher training course the food had to be a certain way, it was so tasty, I didn't miss fish or meat or dairy produce. You could also have massages, the best massages that left you feeling refreshed and uplifted. Rajesh the waiter was so helpful kind and caring. He always had a smile on his face. It was a pleasure to help him with his English. All the staff. The cooks and the housekeeping staff and the manager could not be more helpful. It was like home from home. The beach was a 20 minute walk away which is also lovely for your day off which was a Tuesday."

    "A very enjoyable aspect of the Amrutham Ayurvedic Village Resort is its location in a woody but inhabited area. It was wonderful to be able to sit in the large second floor restaurant area at canopy height and view the foliage and bird life around. We preferred to avoid the friendly but ever present stalls and restaurants of Korrallam beach which is is only a 10-minute rickshaw ride away.The staff were exceptionally helpful and went out of their way to accommodate every need in a homey, secure and intimate environment. I enjoyed the lovely swimming pool.The rooms are large and most are non air conditioned - which we preferred. The beds are quite hard but we became used to it . The food was very good and less spicy hot than we had found elsewhere. Daily yoga and meditation classes are led by Subash, who has a wonderfully gentle manner for both beginners and advanced students .It was also great fun to be taken to various temples and sights in his motor rickshaw between classes. They even organized a tabla drum demonstration for me!We went as relative Yoga beginners to develop our abilities. It is possible to undergo Teacher training, and Ayurvedic Relaxation treatments were available on a daily or package basis. I can recommend Amruthram to single travellers and would go again."

    "The retreat looks identical to the photographs on the website, it's very calm, serene, set right in the jungle so all the can hear is wildlife, beautiful setting. The house is fantastic, very clean, the house staff, Rajesh and Mr Manikantan were incredibly accommodating and brought me anything I needed whenever I wanted! Constant supply of delicious teas, fruits, banana chips. Breakfast was delicious and all freshly made, same as dinner. They have a beautiful open air seating area for meals on the top floor of the house. The yoga room is bright and airy and Soobash is a great teacher, a very calm man who makes you feel instantly calmer in his presence.The pool area was beautiful and the massage area was great, had a lovely Indian head massage by the lady in there. I was a bit out of season so it was quiet and rained so didn't get chance to use the pool. It's about a 40 minute walk to Kovalum beach which is a typical beach, clean though and with lots of gift shops.Left feeling incredibly relaxed and restored. Two thumbs up, was sad to leave the place everyone was lovely. Goodbye Amrutham and thanks for having me!"

    "An amazing stay here in a vibrant jungle setting on an Ayurveda/yoga package. It is set in a beautiful village location but only 10/15 minutes from the beach. The staff are brilliant and cannot do enough for you!The Ayurvedic treatments were also great the therapists were very kind and provided a relaxing, healing and spiritual experience. The outside woven treatment hut is lovely!The yoga teacher was excellent and guided us through pranayama, meditation and both challenging and relaxing asanas. This was our favourite part of the retreat with a great overall practice from a kind and knowledgeable teacher.We were taken out to see some temples, the beach, the town, a trip to the rocks to meditate and to do some walking meditation.The food was superb 3 meals a day. We chose Indian food, we was given the choice of a more western breakfast, however we declined as the Indian food is some of the best food we have ever had! Beautiful vegetarian food, amazing presentation and flavours!If you are looking for a relaxing stay in a spiritual place then this is perfect! A special thank you to Ragesh for being a wonderful server. We very much enjoyed speaking to him to help him improve his English.The vast array of wildlife is amazing to sit and watch from the restaurant where you are just above the tree top canopy. We embraced our magical week with the desire to be close to nature. I have never felt better on a retreat! Thank you so much to all the staff we hope to see you again someday!"

    "Wonderful experience! I love my time at Amrutham. I was planning to stay only for a few nights and ended up staying for 1 week. I wish I could have stayed longer but my holidays were coming to an end. I loved it!!! What a wonderful place, beautiful house, incredible surroundings, but the highlight was the people. Dr Nimi, Sree, Ayith, Sudhakar and every single person made my stay extremely special. They looked after me and it felt like I was part of a family. The location is fantastic as is settled in a quiet village surrounded by palm trees, beautiful settings, very peaceful and natural. The Ayurvedic consultation with Dr Nimi was very exhaustive and they helped me a lot with some health issues. I had a follow up every day and just in a week I felt my overall health improved a lot. The treatments are the best I had in all India and there is a very good communication between the all the people involved and even the food is cooked accordingly to your health needs and is absolutely delicious and healthy. The treatment room was clean and adequate and the ladies giving the treatments were very gentle, professional and caring. Meditation and yoga classes were very personalised. Sree and Ayith are amazing teachers and they teach from the heart. Even though I'm at a beginner level, my practice improved so much in only one week and manage to understand more about my breathing which I was finding very difficult to do before. I can keep going on and on about the wonders of Amrutham. I can't wait to come back and I highly recommend it. Having the chance to have visited Amrutham, feels as a very special gift for the body, the mind and the soul! A big, big thank to everyone!"

    "We travelled through Kerala for 3 weeks staying at several different hotels all in a similar price range and this was by far the best. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the food was the best we had during our whole trip and the hotel was just perfect. I would definitely like to return and stay for longer. Everything about the hotel is just right - beautiful big, comfortable rooms which are spotlessly clean, delicious food, fantastic value for money, ideal location - close to the beach (10 mins by moto taxi) but tucked away in a lovely little quiet village. I can't recommend highly enough. "
