The staff and the place are wonderfully calm and making it feel like home straight away. I enjoyed every moment of my stay in the clean and friendly environment on Ideal resort. We were looking for a quiet place to enjoy the time we had in Chowara and excellently stumbled upon the resort, so happy that happened!

Nice place for a vacation. The people are nice, the rates are affordable, rooms and facilities are nice. From here, travelling to Poovar, Kovalam, Kanyakumari and Padmanabha temple is very convenient.

My biggest experience at the Ideal was the Ayurveda treatment. It was very deep, holistic, serious and I feel I got much much more out of my stay at the Ideal than it was paid. The quality of treatment was very high and although I staid only for 9 days I felt big difference in terms of physical as well...

Stayed overnight here. Overall, a smooth experience. Nice stay at a reasonable price. However, the food at the restaurant was horribly expensive and bad. We stayed in different 3,4,5-star hotels and ate at different places throughout our 10 days trip in Kerala. Nowhere was food so expensive and simultaneously so bad ! This one thing was really a big downer....
