The place is calm, and was not over crowded with guests, also the accommodation charges were decent. It was more of a home or your personal villa stay rather than the hotel or resort like feeling.

I've just visited Ideal for the second time and can really say that it's a home from home. Massages are excellent, the food is good, yoga lessons wonderful, staff (including cleaning ladies, the doctor and driver Jinu) helpful and friendly. All overseen by the manager Shameer, who did his very best to make our stay pleasurable. Rooms are basic. Beautiful...

I stayed at Ideal Ayurvedic resort for two nights (30th and 31st Dec 2016). My experience here was very bad. Apart from super slow service at restaurant, very basic room, bad location, we also faced huge discrimination between the way foreigners and Indians were treated. Everyone was rude to us and was not interested in serving us. This place is...

Ideal Ayurvedic Resort is situated within walking distance from a beautiful, quiet beach. Outdide the Ayurvedic resorts Chowara has little to offer. Nowhere to eat, no coffee houses, no bars or restaurants. The local venders replicate the same offerings solely for tourists. The Ideal Ayurvefic Resort is managed by a friendly and helpful manager. On the whole staff are friendly...

What a wonderful place! So caring. Our days started with a walk on the beach, yoga at 8:30, followed by a healthy breakfast, swim, lunch, and then a 2.5 hour Ayruvedic treatment. The staff led by Shameer was so professional, friendly, capable and caring. Dr. Raj was so knowledgeable and helpful. Entire staff was a joy! Thank you Shameer, Dr....

I have just finished a 3 week panchakarma at ideal Ayurveda and would recommend this resort to anyone who is interested in doing a panchakarma. The manager, Shameer, is a really great guy who knows how to make sure that your stay is as comfortable as possible. The price included all food/ drinks and around 3 hrs of treatments every...

Loved it, my idea of paradise, tranquil & serene the Ideal is the place to relax & unwind. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff, I actually felt like I was in the home of friends.
